    Hi anyone knows where to buy plastic y connectors for wfp? Found one on ebay but its 6.60 with postage which sounds radiculous for a bit of plastic. Any place that sells them.cheaper? Thanks

    I get mine from my local hardware store, £0.69, so if you've got one nearby, give that a try.

    If it's a hozelock Y to use to fill 2 25L at the same time, don't bother. The water goes into one or the other and won't feed both equally.

    I've stopped using that type a while ago as they break too easily when swapping brushes over on the pole so I now use jg push fit ones with Alex Gardiner quick-loq system ;)

    It's in Pocklington, about 15 miles east of York........popped in today and none in stock at the moment, so would be a wasted journey....
    Thinking about it, seem to recall seeing the in B&Q, but can't be sure of price. Probably not expensive though?
