    Myself I prefer the hozelock type fittings as I do alot of fascias cleans etc using customers tap water when they have an outside tap.

    Mind you you if using rectus/ez-snap type fitting you could make up a bit of hose with the right fitting so could connect a pole hose to a standard hose reel but i've never bothered doing it that way myself.

    I've used Hozelock type connectors for years, no leaks so long as you replace the little rubber O rings as soon as any drips start. The rubber O rings can be had for peanuts per hundred via Ebay.

    Hozelock for moi, plastic ones dont wear out as quick as brass, as for seals, i unwind my reel before connecting to reduce wear and tear, havent had to change seals for a long time.
    Only time i get leaks is when the pressure slowly pushes the hose out of the fitting, takes seconds to undo push the hose home then retighten
