    Well, I raved about the Exceed blue hose, it's great if you don't kink the hose to stop the flow. But I do kink the hose to stop the flow and after a couple of weeks it splits just when you don't need it to.

    So, I placed an order with Gardiners last week and thought I'd add some reinforced pole hose to my list. I wasn't expecting it to be much cop to be fair. I've tried reinforced pole hose before, it came with an Unger barge pole and I hated it. It was brittle, kinked up in the pole blah blah blah.

    I was waiting for my Exceed hose to split again before trying out the Gardiners hose. Yesterday it split, so last night I rigged my pole with the Gardiners hose. You have to use JG barbed inserts with this hose.

    The first job this morning it got its first run out and boy is it good!! It has a kind of rubbery workability, it's lovely and soft, lays flat and has kinkability :thumbsup:

    I've seen the video of the Reach IT pole hose and I would guess they are very similar. I nearly bought some Reach IT hose off their site, but the postage from Australia put me off. Wagga has trialled it on YouTube.

    If you want a no nonsense pole hose then this is for you. Being reinforced I think it will last you a while too!

    It costs just over £17 for 30m Reinforced Flexible Pole Hose 5mm ID/9mm OD - Hoses - Pump & Hose - All Products Gardiner Pole Systems

    I put a new length of reinforced hose on my pole last night. The first length lasted over 6 months!! It hadn't split but the outer shell had started to crack.

    It starts to look bubbly under pressure doesn’t it tuffers
    I use about 30m of it connected to 70m microbore and let cars etc drive straight over it across roads etc and it still lasts
