Recommended Posts

Anyone else getting pole hose coming away from push fits etc in this hot weather?

 

I lost count how many times I had to re-thread my pole yesterday.

 

Bring back normal weather, I've had enough of this now.

This hot weather is certainly giving us all more to think about.

 

This can be cured even in hot weather by fitting a barb to stem adapter to the end of the hose with an O clip and then it will not pull out no matter how soft it gets in this heat.

Alternatively you could could switch to a heat resistant pole hose for the summer - http://www.gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/acatalog/Telescopic-Pole-Hose-Packs-Hose_Packs.html

Cheers for the links Alex. Might have not explained well enough. Pole hose from Y connector leading to John Guest - John Guest to rest of pole hose is coming away. Ie pole hose is coming out of the Guest fittings.

 

AFAIK John Guest are the best you can get.
