    Been running off a hose now for a couple of weeks instead of a trolley. On most houses I am finding it to be good, especially like today. 7 or so in a row.

    Any tips on this, if you had 7 or so in a row where would you park the van. End of run, middle of run?

    Is it possible to get no leaks? As my reel still drips, this is why i dont fancy a van mounted reel!

    Any tips in general? I like the idea of using a cloth to reel in to clean the hose. Or using wipes when dirty....

    I normally park at middle depending on back entrances , i go one way other lad goes other way.
    All reels and hose leak at some point its just the way it is giving the pressures in the pipes some of mine leak some dont.
    Also i allways hold a damp cloth over hose when realing in as i would hate a handfull of dog poop lol

    Yeah i thought middle, seemed easier. But was too late LOL!

    hardly ever see any dog poop round here, weird.

    It is leaking from the brass joints. Ie from connector hose to connector on the reel. The fittings that allow it to spin.

    The seals on the elbow go dry and just give up got a couple off eBay came from Hong Kong and I know what everyone's thinking but they are good quality and don't leak
