What will I need to connect 100m of 8mm hose to 6mm pole hose? Totally confused.
i bodged mine mate. small hose inside one of each then sum jubilee clips and i dont get leaks.
Just did a google for you,
Are you after something like this?
i had some of them, the black bit breaks off if you drag them about along the floor.
I would use a female fitting on the 8mm hose
http://www.gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/acatalog/EZ-Snap_Range.html (link is messing about (EZ-Snap™ Female End-Stop Coupling 8mm barb)
That way if your hose comes disconnected you wont be pumping out water.
I also find its better walking through houses with the pipe (no drips)
Make sure you buy the 8mm BARB
Use jubilee clips for the love of god!!!
Thats the 8mm hose sorted.
Now you need to buy on of these
http://www.gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/acatalog/ez-snapmale-tail.html (id go with 5mm for a better fit)
That will go into the pole hose.
Everything will be a tight fit.
So boil some water (enough for a cuppa as well Place hose into boiling water for a few seconds and makes the job easier.
for the pole hose (6mm) You can use these
As I say for the 8mm hose, use jubilee clips!
I would also invest in one of these
@ Damo, so which ones would I buy from here http://www.purefreedom.co.uk/hose-hose-fittings-rectus-21-series-hose-connectors-c-4_43_41.html?page=all&sort=20a&disp_order=6 I don't know which way round the end stop coupling is.
The thin bit is where the hose goes. Its barbed to grip hose (8mm remember)
This will plug into this
you must be MAD to pay those prices.
I buy mine from cleaning spot. Not the same make, but have lasted years!
Gotcha. Cheaper here http://item.mobileweb.ebay.co.uk/viewitem?itemId=251222646980&index=20&nav=SEARCH&nid=21456050891
Damo earns another reputation point.
No because its Size 21 if you read the listing it states they are not original
I would go with either cleaningspot 21 series or ez snap from gardiner
them balls are worth there money, i bought one a few weeks ago. i used to get my connectors scraping the ground etc and coming undun on paving when i tugged it.
