    I want to go from the pump to the DI's to the reel using John Guest fittings. I have tried to work out what I need but it gets complicated.

    The 1/2" hose that is currently in place gets twisted when the reel turns and the brass connector keeps undoing. Maybe I should buy a Swivel Elbow and continue with the 1/2" hose? Would this work?

    Decisions, decisions. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    Yes you need a swivel elbow adaptor, sold on the wcw website.

    John guest fittings are good for all connections up to the reel - because at present there is no John guest fitting that will fit the hose reel.

    I'm in the process of setting up a john guest system atm, still waiting for some parts to arrive, the swivel elbow above has arrived, but i have to say it's quite stiff, doesn't spin around as easily as my hoselock one. Will have to find out if it works.
