Telescoping Wand for power washer


Hi All,
Looking to purchase a telescoping wand, any suggestions as far as length, material go? Was debating between an 18ft and 24ft wand in fiberglass. What do you guys use for washing homes prior to painting?
Really appreciate any feedback on this.

I have a long one from Northern Tool, but I don't use it much any more since I figured out how to really wash a house - with soaping tips. You might want to check out a good pressure washing forum for more info. Those telescoping wands can be really really hard to manage when they get fully extended. That pressure has a whole lot of leverage on you at that length - hard to control and difficult on your body.

Boy are you right about that, Jeff! I have an 18 footer as well, aluminum I believe. It's great for about 12 of those 18 feet, but, once it's fully extended, it makes a man out of you in a hurry. Plus, I find it hard to see if I'm actually getting the surface clean being so far from the surface. I rarely use it.
