    Ive just rigged up 30 metres of Gardiners new reinforced Pole hose for the Trolley.
    First impressions are, it feels really nice, obviously a little thicker than normal pole hose. It is like a smaller version of the Microbore hose that they sell.
    Normal pole hose usually lasts around 12 months. Hoping this will last a little longer.
    will see how it is on Monday.
    Has anyone else used it yet?

    I have used it
    50m connected to 70m microbore on a reel
    It's good hose
    However it tends to kink used as reel hose unless you twist the pole round a few times in your hands occasionally to remove the twist caused by the reeling in

    Got a mate who loves it says it lays nice and flat on the floor. However, it's too heavy for me. I want my hose as light as possible as I get RSI in my wrists very easily. I use 25 Mtrs of PU pole hose mostly though I have a couple of shorter lengths as well and I coil them by hand. I don't use a reel. Takes a bit of getting used to but it works well for me and is very tough.

    I use it, it is tough stuff, the only thing that has stopped the flow was a dustman lorry! I have 100m and does slow the flow rate a little compared to my previous but all in all, happy days ;)

    Sureclean do a high pressure re-nforced one that's 5mm good stuff, why use microbore together with it?

    I have a flow valve on the inlet of the Trolley and a filter before the pump.
