    Just filled up my van ready for tomorrow and my last one of my hozelock connectors is leaking so i replaced it with b&q connectors i am not sure how long these connectors are going to last but i have had mine 5 months and not a leak and they are only a £1 each

    Just a point on hozelock type connectors. If you look inside the female connector you will see the locking catches that grip onto the male part. On 'Hozelock' models I believe there are only 2 but there are some available with 3 catches. I'm confident that this must be a more secure connection. A friend put me on to this and I always look out for this.

    The last one that broke on me had 3 catches and every time I wound my hose in with the system pressurised it blew off. My 99p asda 1 seems to be working on.
