Hi I put together a trolley system using an old sack barrow, a water genie backpack, a hose reel from Wilko, and the other bits I got from Gardiners. Thanks to Adams 0211 and daveyboy1 for the pictures about their homemade trolley systems. The hose, fitments and everything else I got from Gardiners is top quality. I just find the control valve that I bought very hard to use and hold the pole at the same time. I end up leaving it on the floor more often than not which isn't in easy reach Is it easier if the valve is duck taped to the pole or should I get an Aquatap / Aquastop fitting. They sound much easier to use. Are they easy to fit to the pole?
