Tucker Rinse Bar

Cleaning glass with a Water Fed Pole has always had its challenges. One of those challenges has been getting a complete rinse. This is because once the glass is wet it is hard to tell where you have been what has been rinsed and what hasn’t. The issue that is created when glass is not properly rinsed it that you have spotting or even hazing form the debris left behind on the glass.

Hydrophobic Glass also creates problems for the reasons mentioned above. Since water beads or retracts from the surface quickly it is difficult to see and have the confidence of where you have rinsed on the glass. This again can create less than satisfactory glass quality and even if you achieve the results that you want often times you spend additional time doing so.

Tucker has announced their new Rinse Bar (pictured above). This over the top rinse feature spreads the water evenly over the surface being covered allowing for confidence and speed on the glass. It’s no surprise that Tucker has developed this technology as Tucker long ago released an over the top spray solution. Its sprayed a fan design on the glass.



The pencil jets in a row across the bar on the new design seem to be a better solution than the original fan jet. The bar keeps everything tight whereas the over the top fan spray was easily in the way and it often sprayed things you didn’t want sprayed.

These are sold separately and can be added to any Tucker Brush.
