    Ok seen people talking about these but without meaning to be thick. What is it & how does it work. I know it saves you water of which I just use a tap on my hose. What is the difference.

    It goes on the end of the pole before your brush. You pull your hose to knock it off, pull again to start flow. £50 tho

    No probs pal, I think the holster is a good idea for your tap so it's at reach length. I'm going to test the kink idea tomorrow. Would be good to try and find like a push button you could run the hose through that when you push it it squashes hose stopping the flow, then push again to free it

    I actually thought of an idea. On a fish tank where you have an air device you can buy a little tap to slow the air down. Problem I think is that on a hose it would take to long to screw it down and would it stop all the water. It may work?

    holster is good with a tap but you can not compare it to a aqua adapter they are a different class

    The aqua adaptor sounds a great idea but seems for £50 a lot to stop water. If I was fully wfp then yeah def get one but just for the odd backpack job don't think it's worth it. Holster sounds good but still don't know what it is or how it works?
