    I only have a small Astra van, and pull my hose reel out each time, and have to disconnect the hose each time, so I get thru a few connectors throughout the year.

    I use the Hozelock Aqua-Stop connectors, is this stantard practice among window cleaners, or do the ones with the stop valve restrict flow??

    Just curious to know others feedback with the Aqua-Stop connectors.

    Cheers!

    Buy brass ones, mine have lasted ages. Stop end or free flowing doesn't make much difference.

    Never seen brass before, so thanks very much for that!

    I'll try them!

    Do you even use Brass ones that connect to the DI Vessel or shouldn't that matter so much?...

    Used plastic Hozelock type fitting for over ten years without issue. Tried the brass ones but didn't like them. My preference is B&Q's own budget ones (blue) for a quid each- I find them better than genuine Hozelock fittings. You carry on with them buddy, don't get talked into any fancy rectus fittings etc.;);)
