    I can't afford an aquadapter and I don't want to be carrying a long length of hose in my hand whilst working. So I fitted the tap to the pole, but the hose gets all tangled up with each other. Any ideas how I can attach it better?


    ******, can't post a pic on a tablet (can't find paste option)

    The longer the pole the bigger the loop unfortunately best bet to put tap near end of pole hose and attach to belt via tap holster but the hose is now on the ground with longer poles if you know what I mean

    Shame the taps are so big as you could put a few in line and switch the one you need if any one understands that but they would still snag everything as you pull the hose

    @ squeak, I see what you're saying but I want to be able to turn the water off while the pole is extended ie between one bedroom window then across to the next. Might have to save for an aquadapter.
