    Thinking of using a harris pole with the backpack option to start.Was going to use inline tap at end of pole,short length of hose with Rectus 21 female/male connectors connected to back pack hose or should I fit another inline tap to isolate backpack from pole?
    Was only thinking of using about 25m length of hose in total between brush head and backpack.

    What hose do you use jambo because I was thinking of doing this with standard hose just to save moving my pack every window I do.

    I found 30mtrs of 5mm yellow hose from bayersan on eBay & think I paid 6 or 7 quid. 10mts of hose is ample & like jambo said I also put the backpack down and can do all fronts without moving. 1 tip make sure you extend pole before cutting hose otherwise cut it 10mtrs with it down and yer lose lose it all when you extend it
