    It sounds like you have a stop end connector facing the wrong direction Neil. The water isn't passing through and blowing the Hozelock off.

    I've also found hozelock type plastic fittings pop off/ leak when they get worn. That's why I like to carry a few spares including outside tap fittings etc. Which reminds me I've left another new outside tap fitting on a job yesterday as the customers one was knackered. Doh!:rolleyes:

    Would this just replace my brass fitting on my hose Bingo and should I get a brass connector to from the di hose to connect to the swivel bass fitting?

    Ideally you should match like for like so if you get a brass swivel for the inlet on your hose would be a good idea to get a brass hozelock fitting for the inlet hose too.
