    Gardiner's EZ-Snap female end stop coupling and male EZ-Snap mail tail. Sizes to inside diamt of hose you are using.

    We use the EZ-Snap female end stop 8mm on the end of our hose reels. We use the 6mm EZ-Snap female end stop on the backpacks. We use the 6mm male tail on the pole hose and as the males are interchangeable with the female end stops we can use the same pole on either the backpack or hose reel.

    You'll get to know what hose you like and don't after a while, the trick is to try different ones every time you need a new one. I find the best pole hose is the Gardiners orange pole hose. It coils like crazy, but you can pinch/kink it easily to stop the water flow. Their yellow one is too soft IMO, it doesn't coil up, but I find it gets stuck up the pole and it's harder to pinch/kink.
