    Loving to work with my new Gardiner poles, but does anyone else get the same tangling problems with the excess hose when storing in van?

    It drives me bonkers- every time I go to get the pole out having to untangle the yellow hose that manages to knot every time without fail!

    The poles themselves slot quite nicely into 4" waste pipes, but it's the excess hose that's the problem- especially with the longer poles that obviously have even more excess!

    Anyone got any decent storage solutions?

    yes its same stuff the sell with aquadapters cuz it doesnt stretch its by far best hose iv ever used and rolls up pretty much by itself and like i say its A MUST for hot water, you can buy it from gardiner and all other wfp suppliers but its more expensive than normal pole hose, i get mine from http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Polyureth...Air_Tools_and_Compressors&hash=item19c48c2c18
    thats the stuff i use as its fits all the push fit connectors supplied with gardiners poles, you wont be dissapointed ;)

    Long loop the hose against the pole then a couple of velcro straps to wrap around to secure.

    I much preferred the Gardiner hose when I was cleaning. Once I got an Aqua-dapter I just could not get used to there hose drove me nuts. Think it just depends really on what suits you. I found Gardiners lass tangly thank aquas.
