    My brain isn't working... My little one hasn't let me sleep for weeks and I can't figure out something really simple!

    Someone ran over my pole hose and sliced it almost right through. I'm on WCW website and can't for the life of me find any to buy. Current pole hose is red and external diameter is around 6 or 7mm (measured with a ruler so not very technical!)

    What should I be searching for? :)

    you will need a 6 or 8mm barb to connect the 2 hoses togeather again.

    pole hose or reel hose, theres a difference

    I've got connectors, just need the hose. I think the problem ous actually that WCW either didn't stock much or is out of stock. Gardiners has exactly what I'm looking for. Just need to order enough stuff to make it worth their delivery charges :/

    Why do you need more hose?
    Use a connector and keep the same hose

    Beccy says its her pole hose that has been damaged. The problem with joining it is that the join will get caught on the inside if the pole as she raises it.

    The pole hose she has on her CLX is orange so could well be the same as Gardiner sells. Beccy already has what appears to be Microbore on a Claber hose reel.

    A replacement brush and a couple of fitting will always go toward making the transport costs more bearable. I think Beccy lives in one of those far flung places that costs a lot more for transport costs of packages.
