    Hi guys trying to set my Harris pole up with recoil hose so no trailing loops as like a tap on pole. Seems to be diffucult to access the cones when the hose is coiled as its in the way. Anyone know how to get around this? Cheers

    I would just use normal wfp hose myself even on the outside of the pole works for me.

    If the hose is on the outside of the pole you can just pinch/bend the wfp hose to stop the water flow and/or you could get a tap fitted if you want.

    There are many wfp tap types you can get 2 like the aquatap & aqadapter that fits on the top of the pole and others that are fitted in-line at the bottom of the pole hose. Again try out different ones to see what works best for you.

    i am a bit pee ed actually as the backpack has a two speed switch and a vari control kn ob...but on full minimum its still powerful and doesnt really give me any scrubbing time..

    and putting switches at the bottom of the backpack and the led s too...a real pain..on top would have been great...

    maybe i will try to clamp of a section of hose although thats just a tap really..
