This is my attempt to run a reel from my car. Tried it yesterday The reel is secured on a board and the pump (in blue box) is placed next to the car. I closed (but didn't lock boot. It was quicker than using a trolley and was better on my injured shoulder, however, the connector on the inside of the reel came off, why? this meant lots of water poured into the boot. I tried to pump most of it out and mop rest up. It seems like the two areas where water can leak are from the reel connectors and also the pump (where hose comes out), should I place both on the pavement? Even though I put tarpaulin underneath everything, and it definitely was much better than having nothing but because so much water leaked out some got through to the carpet in boot, is there a better way to waterproof underneath? Finally, I put a hose taped to a piece of garden cane to keep the hose sucking right from the bottom of barrel, is there a better way?
