    I just use a normal water-stop connector on the end of my hose. Disconnect pole hose & water stops as pressure sensor cuts pump off.

    OD? outside diameter? Do you mean ID, inside diameter (minibore)? If so, using a reducer as above & a normal Hozelock type water stop connector will do the job. If you don't have an electronic controller on the pump, the pumps own pressure switch will cut it out.

    I use these.

    Is this a trolley? You don't mention a hose "reel".
