    Anyone else getting pole hose coming away from push fits etc in this hot weather?

    I lost count how many times I had to re-thread my pole yesterday.

    Bring back normal weather, I've had enough of this now.

    Drag the reel hose instead of pole hose to stop this.

    I thought you had x line fittings that you had to turn G to unlock?

    This hot weather is certainly giving us all more to think about.

    This can be cured even in hot weather by fitting a barb to stem adapter to the end of the hose with an O clip and then it will not pull out no matter how soft it gets in this heat.

    Alternatively you could could switch to a heat resistant pole hose for the summer - http://www.gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/acatalog/Telescopic-Pole-Hose-Packs-Hose_Packs.html
