    When I dont want to carry the backpack around I attach my hose, Handy if I need to jump over gates or feel tired. It was easy to make as I used 60 feet metres of microbore onto an old hozelok reel and male connector to the backpack and a female connector to the pole. Just gives that extra flexibility.

    Looks good. If you connected a on & off tap at the end of your pole you wouldn't even need to take the backpack out the van. 60 metres is like just under 200 feet.

    ive had this idea for some time now, i want to leave one in car boot, focus estate, or back seat in a box to collect any drips, with an extended hose to add to pole when near vehicle. good job. get the 22 litre one from wcw, saves filling.

    Just watch the pump, with that length of hose you could burn the pump out, the backpack pumps are not designed to pump water through that length of hose, that's why they are on a backpack!

    thats not to bad, but any more and it would put strain on the pumps.
