    Does anyone use one of these and are they any good? i'm using the tap on my hose i got with my Gardiner pole and it's a pain turing the thing on and off.

    Also seems like i've got too much hose with my pole i keep triping over it or it gets tangled up with the other hose i know this is a hazards of the job just want to try and minimise it abit,If i cut it down does anyone no where you can those little metal clips what go round the hose?

    I am interested in this too, was thinking about getting an aqua adapter too but not sure if its worth it I have a small tap fitted at the brush end of the pole which I find is very good, only difference I will save in water is putting pole up & down, so wouldn't of thought much plus they must be heavier than my little tap!?
    I believe those clips are called O rings & you can get them from ebay plus a plier tool to crimp them, as for size of O rings for pole hoze & microbore I am not sure, I was going to order 5-7mm for pole hose & 7-9mm for 8mm hose?
    can anyone confirm this?

    The other thing is I think if you are using the yellow Gardiner pole hose you will need to replace it with new hose either from Gardiner poles or aqua adapter, as the yellow stuff is too soft I believe & will just stretch, so need to get a stiffer one this will also depend on if you use hot water or not

    Do you need stronger hose as your pulling on it all the time to turn the aqua dapter on and off?
