I still have old faithful, Karcher K2 Compact 110 bar. Had her some seven years I think.

Then after the hosepipe attachment issue on the same Thursday as the pressure washer incident, I thought I’d look at new Hozelock hosepipes. Then whilst at work last night, noticed the store was selling some of the gardening stock off cheap. It’s a stores own brand but it was £6 for 15m hose and reel and will fill as an interim hose until I can decide on which Hozelock hose to go for.
