    Can I just add a y piece to the hose leaving the pump to make it into 2 hoses, then just buy another hose and reel? Run off the 1 pump?

    Is this ok to do?

    I'd have thought so, mine came fitted for 2, think its on a 4 way connector as its fitted with by pass. Haven't really looked at it so can't be sure, but in essence reckon it would just be a tater of turning the pump higher so it has enough power to run 2 poles

    you can do it, but wouldnt reccomend it, it will put extra strain on the pump and when the poles are flowing at the same time the water flow will drop a lot.
    i run 2 seperate pumps and when i have both pumps running there is still a little drop on the flow.
