Here’s the set-up so far:





Figured out the issue I was having with the Kew connectors: basically not pushing it together hard enough.

Here is a photo of my set up, my main intention was to make it as quick and easy to was the car, at my old house I had to get the PW out, hose pipe, extension etc, keep running back and forth to the garage for products etc.

I am happy with the set up including the standard hose, I have had upgraded hoses in the past and imo they aren’t worth the faff, but my question is, is there an upgraded lance that will fit / with adapters, onto my nilfisk hose? Ideally I would like a lance with a wider spray pattern would be better?

That is a great idea for the bottles, haven't seen that and I'm guessing it's just two of the IKEA units joined together? Brilliant, I'll be nicking that idea!

It made no difference, do not even think it's a 025, no inscription on the nozzle, these Chinese!

After reading through this thread I'm very tempted to get a custom gun and swivel!

I've got a Vax P84-P4-T with a rubber hose from q washers

I got them to put the biggest female qr coupling on one end, with the male adaptor on the pw, and then they crimped the proprietary Vax connector onto the other end, no it won't take much to redo this end and put another qr on it

Is there much difference between getting a normal gun and external swivel or a gun with an internal swivel?

Secondly are qwashers still the cheapest place to go to or are malcleanse very similar in price?

I think they're both priced pretty similarly, I spent more money with malcleanse because I couldn't get a reply from qwashers, I sent several messages though ebay and a few emails.

I think the only real difference between the guns with a built in swivel is that it's neater, adding one after the gun will make the setup a bit bulkier. I've found I use the swivel a lot and it's quite handy to have.

I've ran into the same problem that spyk3d has where my m22 fitting on the rear of the washer has decided to pop off for no reason, it's not cross threaded and the original nilfisk hose fits fine. It's proving hard enough to source another one, malcleanse don't seem to want to ship one wee item and Im going to have to message qwashers (hopefully il get a reply)

I think he's one of those blokes who doesn't like writing. I only got one from two messages answered in the past.


He is all over Youtube and he posts his phone number in the videos.

- if that helps

wanted to get a short stainless lance so decided to try out the neto click system. Feel like very good quality compared to the normal crappy garden hose fittings





433mm stainless steel moulded lance
1/4" quick release probes
Stainless twin ear-o-clips 17-20mm
Nito click probes 1/2"
Nito click couplings 1\2" with 1/2" hose tail
