    there not very expensive!!.just a quick fix.they will fit any 8mm od pole hose.fix it near your brush hose & right way around.connect your hose in your backpack or reel.turn switch on & away you go.(be quick with this method)I use the aquatap & this helps down sides of houses were I carnt turn aquatap on or off.:)

    If you turn them off near the brush, do you reckon that would stop the water pouring out the pole hose when you disconnect? So it would cause a vacuum effect?
