    i've always used john guest push fitting on my hose reel to pole hose but i'm wondering if the rectus type might be easier/quicker, any one used both & got an opinion please

    Rectus type fittings start to leak after a while IF you disconnect a lot. I use EZ-Snap and disconnect everytime I put my pole back in the van. They start leaking after a couple of weeks.

    I use jg and rectus and dislike the rectus
    They are easy to disconnect/connect but have a tendency to catch on things and pop open and go wrong after a while
    Also they are heavier and you need protectaballs ideally where a 8mm-8mm push fit is more slimline and nothing to go wrong with it and if it does it is peanuts to replace

    I wouldn't use rectus fittings anywhere they will get dragged along the floor. Only place I use them is connecting to my pole. My have the tubeless setup on both so the rectus fitting is inside the ex-ceed ejector sleeve. I like that the rectus is a waterstop connector. I use JGs at the brush head and to fit an extension section in my hose should I need it.

    shame, i add sections to my pole a lot so the end of the pole hose has to go right through easily & i just found one of the male connectors, no idea why i got it, but it wont fit up the pole

    gardiners sell the clamber orange fitting and also the male fitting to match. it is just like a hoselock
    this is what i prefer now
    you can disconnect the two easy,the only problem is you dont twist the two fitting together for a connection or you will brake the fitting inside the clamber ,you just push it straught in
