    Hi All, can any one recommend the best fittings for attaching Pumps to water supply, Pumps to Hose reel ect. I am using hozilock and they burst off under pressure and continually leak.

    I would appreciate hearing form experienced WFP cleaners who have tried and tested fittings. My set up is very simple its a DIY job consisting od
    350 litre water tank
    Varistream
    Shurflo Pump
    Liesure Battery
    100 Meters of 8mm microbore
    45 Foot ionic carbon pole
    27 ft Gardiner pole


    Thank you for all your help.

    I use these with a rubber washer fitted. Never had a wasted drop. Or if you wanted quick connect like hose lock (but without the leakage), go for pro fittings which will take up to 1/2 inch hose or EZ snap which wont but you could use some of the mini bore off you reel
