    You will need to make a list of what you have/need with the hose sizes written down for each item.
    Start at your pump and work towards the pole. Fill in the sizes on the parts that you already have.
    -----
    Pump: = outlet hose size=
    Hose from pump to hose reel: = inlet hose size=
    Hose reel: inlet hose size=
    Hose on the reel: hose size
    The end of the hose reel: Rectus21 End Stop fitting (stop laughing) : =
    Hose Tail on water fed Pole hose:
    ------

    So you should end up with a list that looks something like this when filled out,
    ------
    Pump: = outlet =12.5mm garden hose
    Hose from pump to hose reel: = =12.5mm garden hose
    Hose reel: Inlet Size=12.5mm garden hose with Hozelock connector
    Hose on the reel := Minibore 8mm
    The end of the hose reel: Fit a Rectus21 mini End Stop fitting with an 8mm barb
    Hose Tail on water fed Pole hose: Rectus21 mini hose tail with a 6mm barb
    ------

    If your list ends up like that then you will need
    Some 12.5mm garden type hose (to go from pump outlet to hose reel inlet)
    A garden hose Hozelock connector (to connect pump hose to the hose reel)
    A hose reel with 100M of minibore 8mm hose on it
    A rectus21 mini End Stop connector (to go on the end of the hose reel)
    A rectus21 mini hose tail (to go on the pole hose, to plug into the reel).

    You will need some jubilee clips (or use 'O Clips' there much better)

    Your gear connects together in this order.

    Van tank, or 25litre barrels
    Pump
    Hose reel
    End stop connector
    Hose tail
    Pole hose
    Brush


    Tell us if it makes sense?

    Additionally, you could add a small TAP near the end of your pole hose, so that you can save water and stop running back to the van every time you wanna turn it off.

    Otherwise you could be "losing lots of water running back and forth to turn of pump box."

    Or if you follow the instruction in my previous post with the list, you can simply unplug the pole at the rectus21 fittings.
