Forget what everyone else does and stick to the spec. If you use longer and your pump fails you can only blame yourself. It's only a backpack at the end of the day. Tiny diaphragm pump piddly battery and flow control

The more you stress your tools the faster they fail! The BP is a tool to enable you to earn money, so it's critical. For the sake of walking a few meters don't go over 20m.

If you look at the techy info on the link above this is the statement:

'Pump not warrantied if used with extension hose longer than 20m (not including pole hose length)'

20m is 20m if a backpack has 3 foot of hose you'd expect a pole to have 60 feet 

Pole is sold with 10m of hose, BP doesn't come with any (no option) was looking at buying 20m hose?

I'd say 10m of hose, as you say pole comes with 10m

If you are buying a Gardiners backpack it's sold with a few feet of hose as standard. The more hose you had the less flow you get

I've used one with 100m of 6mm hose in the past and was fine for about 9 months then the pump couldn't handle it anymore. 

A pump is about 20 quid max on amazon though so is doable.

I'd like to think they have been pressure tested from the brush back to the unit, and there's ya 20m maximum they advise.

I been using mine for some practice. As I said to Nick ,I got 11.5 m of pole hose with my pole. I've not even fully extended that. If I need I just move the trolley I've got it on.

Yes.. piece of pee.

Just need to either fit 2 female spade terminals to the wires to the new pump or just solder them on.

2 minute job.

Alex from Gardiners has stated on here that over 20m hose he won't honour the warranty but for the price of cheap pumps it's up to you.

I changed my pump for a viton seal chemical resistant one for softwashing once mine died and only cost me 25 quid.

To be honest at 105 quid they are a throwaway item anyway if they break.

Just buy 2 and have a spare.

When I used a backpack from my car when I changed to wfp I had about 35m of hose on ot and always dumped it by the side gate and could do the whole house unless it was a real big house.
