    Yes it does Tuffers . I have taken apart with Allen key and put all sorts in to stop leaks but they never last. Does that connector stand up much to wear?

    The only thing I've ever had to change is the female Hozelock fitting. I only buy the B&Q 99p ones anyway. My way of thinking is this. If a water connection is allowed to be a moving part it will eventually start to leak.

    Thats true Tuffers. What gets me though, is those swivel joints are sold to do a job presumably without leaking. If they eventually wore by the rubber seal, then fair enough, but they mainly leak from the thread. Seems to me they are not really well made. They not cheap either :rolleyes:
    Might try the straight one then. See how long it lasts. The angle of the swivel suits the trolley though. Hmmmmmm
