    I need to order a hard surface wand today. Your experiences with either a Gekko or Westpack wand would be helpful. I want a brush head and a 4 imch one jet head.
    Thanks.

    Their virtually identical.

    Conway will have the perfect hard surface wand out some year, so buy the cheapest for now

    A little late maybe, I have the new and improved gekko. Pro's-easy to switch over to other heads, brush head works well. Con's the rubber squeegee skirt tore after about 3 uses. The squeegee tends to lock down or not suck at all. The brush head and 4 inch tool is all you need.

    Will that new gekko 14 inch head fit the older style gekko wand with swivel?

    Mikey your persona is quite different than you appear on this board.

    No, but you can buy an adapter for it.

    Is that offered at interlink or do I have to go to a hardware store to fix it?

    Really?

    Most would say it's exactly the same.
