    Thinking of ways to save water during the day as I'm spending too much money on resin use 500 litres of water a day thought If I try and use less I won't have to keep changing my resin every two weeks £70 a bag ain't cheap .

    I've seen one on utube where the guy just pulls the hose where it comes out the pole to turn on and off
    Don't know what it is but it's cool

    I tried aquatap but use swivels on my poles and absolutely don't work well together, aquatap everyone swears by but seen em in action and don't wanna be letting go of pole and pulling hose non stop. I use the unger hi flow trigger which basically just squeezes the hose, attached with Velcro so can be anywhere on pole and ya don't have to take ya hands off.

    Cheapest and easiest ....just kink the hose :).

    Triggers/Taps attached on the pole will give you the dreaded 'Loop'...

    Ungers 'Hi-Flow Trigger' is great if you work with the pole hose on the outside of your pole, as the pole hose slides through the mechanism....if you work with the pole hose inside the pole, then you'll get the dreaded loop.

    'Tap in the hose'....either keep in hand...or hose'n'tap over the shoulder or a tap holster attached to your trouser belt.....

    or just drag it along the floor if your balls are big enough....

    Cheap (Foam) Balls....just put a hole in them for the hose :thumbsup:

    I dont care for triggers as they cause looping, I have a small tap on my belt, one side connects to the 8mm the other to the pole hose. Saved me around 50% of my water usage.
