    Looks right 25mm = 1 inch if that helps looks like a John guest fitting plumbing wise 15mm Yorkshire fittings are referred to as 1/2 inch

    With the varistream set up I use rectus 26 fittings to the pole so if the pole is disconnected from the female connector this stops the pump so here goes a long description how I would do the setup after pump out hose to van panel plate or bumper plate this connection would be rectus 26 female at this stage I have no flow as the female is closed then connect 12.5mm linking hose with rectus 26 males either end on the spare end of link pipe would be my tap this would attach to my 100 mtr reel females both end holds water when both ends closed the pole with tap connects to hose via male rectus 26 the pole always self drains depending where the tap is not an indefinite way of doing it just my way

    Did try hoselocks but didn't always stop the pump as the pressures highish the rectus gets it shut down everytime

    Have you got em powered by battery drills I've looked into this but could do with a bigger van for that

    Ahhh i wish, they are similar to the hozelock ones in gardens. But industrial quality.

    My next van i do will have electric hose reels, I am hoping to use a winch type design layout.
