Pole hose inside or out.

Recommended Posts

What do members think is better hose inside or out side the pole saves on cleaning the poles if out side.

I'd find a coiled hose on the outside a menace - like putting clothes on a clothes horse, radiator or washing line. What a faff. I did once try having the hose loose from the gooseneck and while it worked i was always concerned about the strain on the nylon tube fitting but admittled it does give the hose a lot more range if it hasn't got to go to the bottom of the pole and then up.

 

But no.. neither of those are right lol. Inside pole job for me.

Only briefly used it on the outside once on the last job of a day after I pulled too hard on a Univalve 😫

 

Gave it a big yank and the hose came tumbling down the inside of the pole soaking me.  Didn't know what on earth was happening 😌

Only once like davit pulled to hard and pulled hose out. Only had one upstairs do so just pushed hose into the brush and up it went. Flapping about slapping the wall got caught on the window sill and pulled off as I didn't bother with the clamp. Never again.

Definitely inside. Just make sure you wash the pole through at the end of the day, or a couple of times a day when the ground is wet

Used on outside when starting wfp using homemade Harris pole before buying a "proper" Pole. Worked ok for me, but seem to remember  water running down outside of pole more than when using pole with hose on the inside.

I I think my poles last a long while by being tubless and using a electric reel after each job I use a cloth cleaning the hose whilst reeling in so my hose is spotless after each house clean. 

 

Also so a little maintenance washing the pole each weekend for good measure.

You've abandoned the trolley and air hose reel?
