    Hi guys, I recently bought a WFP with a 5mm hose and after bought a trolley but now I have a male adapter on that which is 8mm so without realising i've put myself in a sticky situation. Has anyone got any suggestions on how I can make anything out of this situation?

    This would fit the connection you have.

    Use a 6mm to put onto the 5mm hose.

    I have this on my hose reel... I use a 8mm as my hose is 8mm inside diameter

    And this on the end of my pole hose

    Your pole hose should be 5mm, so get yourself a 6mm one.
    ( the ball is bought seperatey to protect them )

    Do not buy these off brodex.. Brodex seem to be very expensive for connections!
