    Hi guys

    thinking of getting an aqua adapter or similar as I am really not getting on with the inline taps etc, is aqua adapter the best to go for or can you recommend others that are better?

    are they easy to fit and will I need any other connections or anything? I have an slx 18 and 25 with 45 degree carbon gooseneck on one and angle adapter on other ?

    please advise on best to go for and fitting etc?

    thanks all

    We have had Aquadapters from virtually day one. I would recommend them. You need to use the hose that they also sell. The hose is especially designed to have very little stretch so ideal for operating A/D. never used a Aquatap so can't compare the 2.

    The hose coils up nicely when putting it way, so you need to uncoil it before connecting your pole up. This stops the hose tangling up at the base when extending your pole.

    They now have a kit so you can disconnect the hose at the base of the pole and wind the pole hose onto the hose reel - a much better idea.

    Fitting a gooseneck to the AD will be a problem. A/D don't like them as they put addition strain on the A/D with leverage.

    You can use this on the end of the pole to screw the A/D on

    Now the problem is with fitting your gooseneck to the A/D.

    For me I use an ordinary plastic angle adapter as I can adjust it to any angle needed as I work.

    If you want to fit your gooseneck them A/D sell this, but I see they are out of stock.

    Love Aqua Dapters. Only problem is when the hose snags, the water turns on. Many times I have put it in van. Hose catches bumper and water sprays all over van
