    It should have come with a hozelock connector. Mine did. I then bought a connector that fitted in the hozelock connector with a 6/8mm tail on it to push your 6/8mm hose on.

    Hi Richmaze1981,

    I think you have to specify that you want a connector, and costs a little extra.

    You could use a Rectus 21 (or equivalent) connector or we now have some new alternative connectors that are also suitable for the backpack hose with 6mm ID.

    I would recommend tecbuk for your brush

    Also the rectus 21 fittings are very good, my hozelock connections always leaked..

    Is your work 2 storey or higher? An slx 22 or 25 would suit 2 storeys..
