Hozelock

Myself I prefer the hozelock type fittings as I do alot of fascias cleans etc using customers tap water when they have an outside tap.

 

Mind you you if using rectus/ez-snap type fitting you could make up a bit of hose with the right fitting so could connect a pole hose to a standard hose reel but i've never bothered doing it that way myself.

I've used Hozelock type connectors for years, no leaks so long as you replace the little rubber O rings as soon as any drips start. The rubber O rings can be had for peanuts per hundred via Ebay.

Hozelock for moi, plastic ones dont wear out as quick as brass, as for seals, i unwind my reel before connecting to reduce wear and tear, havent had to change seals for a long time.

Only time i get leaks is when the pressure slowly pushes the hose out of the fitting, takes seconds to undo push the hose home then retighten

Thanks m8, tried these and there pretty good is there anything a little more robust without going down the brass line ?

 

I don't think you'll get any other product other than that exact one mate, in plastic especially.

Here's another option, but It doesn't look as good as the other to be honest.

Thanks m8, some options but I'm going to try having the hose thrown over my shoulder with the tap hanging in front of me so the less places that leak the better so will go with the first option but nice links thanks :)
