John Guest connection with hose reel



Recommended Posts

They don’t ‘swivel’ once tightened though? The JG tube will be put under tension when the reel rotates - Then, i assume - the teeth in the JG fitting will spin on the tubing and eventually make the hose fail? Might take a while but it’s not something I would risk. How long have you had yours connected - and has the tubing (when removed from the connector) got score marks in?

Going on 6 months now and no issues.
Just removed one of them the and no marks on the tubing as far as I can see.

I have been continually cutting back the pipe and have a score mark where it’s been plugged in on he current one. Once cutting the pipe stops working I change the washer and the plastic bit on the end.... absolute ball ache though. Think it may be partly because I’ve got one length of pipe from the pump to the reel though.
