    What connections do you use on you hose reels/di etc? I need new stop ends as each time I in plug the hose reel water squirts everywhere..

    I have orange ones I bought with system they are good, but not end stops. Was going to order them tomorrow. Hoselocks ones are £5 odds!!

    But just seen this http://www.homebase.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?langId=110&storeId=10151&partNumber=070824

    Comes with 2 end stops ( £10 ) plus I get a reel on wheels and 30m of hose ( which I need anyway )

    But do you think I could put 60m of 6mm microbore onto this reel?

    Cheers! Looks a good wee reel cart for £30! The 100m reel is heavy lifting in and out alot, and I never use it all either.

    Yes mark, have seen it twice now lol

    Belfast i had a similar one mate :) from hozelock.... did the job... but if u can afford it get a stong hose reel thats welded... like in the video :) I found that plastic hosereels arent as good as the metal welded ones :)

    But u can start with that now mate and get a better one later :)
