« on: May 14, 2018, 06:11:26 pm »
........to stop the pole hose coming out of the brush connector when pulling the hose using a univalve?i normally just use an O RING but lately its been sliding off the hose no matter how tightly i tighten the ring....

today it was very annoying....it came out at least 10 times when working.....i use orange PU hose and o rings from gardiners..... >:(

cheers guys....

I don't use anything.
Also, I don't use those little red clips that ensure your hose stays in the connector. I never have a problem.
However, I have one brush that can cause a problem, but only if the brush is angled straight up (as if you were doing a julliet balcony) then it pops out.

How much do I charge? As much as I can!

I am guessing it is more of a problem with hot water, it creates problems you don't often get with cold.

These work for me. I cut them from a piece of 2" plastic plumbing pipe and drill them with a 7mm drill bit. Once on the hose they don't move unless you twist and pull at the same time

I taped the  hose to the gooseneck as a temporary fix a year ago when I ran out of o rings.

It's still like that...

So simplest way bit of tape

Wrap some electrical tape around it, thicker than the hole obviously, job done.

ive put an o clip,zip tie and a good wrap of tape on the hose and its just about holding it in place.... ::)roll

its the 60c+ water which is causing the problem i think.....

I keep a few in my motor as spares, but Iíve only had one crack in the 18 months or so Iíve been using this method

I found the ExCeed one gradually slipped down the tube and I kept having to resite it. That's why I made my own.
