    Hi guys as many know ill be working off of a gardiner backpack.

    Ordered a 22ft slx gardiner. What I need to know is do I need microbore hose or just some extra pole hose.

    What's enough would you say?

    Cheers chaps.

    I would say around 20 ft of pole hose personally
    I just bought 30 ft of hi viz stuff for my diy trolley..6.3mm id with rectus 21 fitting tap, 2 6mm rectus 21 hose tails and 6mm rectus 21 female to join on to existing pole hose and be able to disconnect quickly

    I would recommend getting an all weather hose or the soft hose that is available through WCW. Its easier to bend and stop the water flow.

    I usually bend my hose to stop water
    I have a couple of jobs where i hop over the flat roof to get to the backs wuichbis what i want the tap for
    And the jobs where i have to drag trolley through house or garage
    Now i will be able to just take pole through..30m of new hose plus about 15 of the old stuff
