    Anyone use a tap for their pole hose attached to the pole?
    I have seen wagga do it and heard of others doing it
    Now i have my hose on the inside to try it for a week i was thinking of trying it
    The guy i get my water from reckons the loop that is created will tangle and twist too much
    I am fed up with looking around to find the tap to shut the water off so fancy that idea
    Anyone??

    hi mate have you considered a tap located on brush head very near to you and if need to stop flow just drop pole in seconds also can turn on and extend to second storey windows really fast with minimal water waste been doing this way for three years no probs whatsoever

    havent been on here in a while do lurk regular but got lazy fingers lol

    I have a metal tap with rectus fitting already which would be too big and heavy to put near the brush
    Good idea though

    I use gardiner taps on my poles and hold the hose so the tap rests near the back of my hand there is a lot more freedom when opening and extending the pole.
    If you look on the gardiner site there's a video.
    Never liked the idea of a tap fixed to the pole myself.

    I wouldn't use anything other than a tap personally.

    My pole hose runs inside the pole I use the gardiner taps.The tap is connected about a 1/3rd from the end of hose I then hold hose with tap hanging by my hand.
