    Although not a major issue, its just another in a list of things to annoy me......

    Has anybody else had an issue with the pole hose clips popping off the hose and push fit connector. On the connector from pole hose to hose reel. They look like this......

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-10x-Double-ear-20-23mm-hose-O-clips-water-fed-pole-/110538476714

    Am i just better off replacing them with jubilee clips, or are these used for a reason?

    Second point is, i am new to this game, and seem to be using a lot of water. Is this normal for a combination of being new and doing first cleans and hot weather. My varistream is set to 35 -40...this seem normal or can i lower it?

    the prob is you have to get the right size, even a mm out they can be ****, get the ones from gardiners, with 1 lip and ring inside

    I didnt use jubilee clips for 6 months and had the same issue, when I started I was told to use them and now I am telling you to use them. all you popping off problems will go away.
