    hopefully iv found and rectified my leaky hose.

    as i bought it second hand from a chap who does hartlepool, forgot his name.

    anyway i rolled it all out today, get the neighbours eyes looking. something new to look at.

    anyway rolled right out, turned controller on, emptied reel hose into 25 litre drum, dont want to waste any now do i. turning tap on reel on and off, drips started to form a wee pudle , when he clipped the o ring onto the reel hose barb fitting he has only clipped one side to secure onto hose.

    i clipped the other side to make sure its tight onto 8mm reel hose securing it to the fitting barb.
    sent you some pics to drool over

    this is what made me reel it all out, THANKS smurf.
    i thought the reel hose may of had a pin type hole in it, not a 100 mteres as described in sale.
