Not impressed anymore
on 22 June 2014
These used to be the only hose fittings to buy, but sadly the quality has gone down over the last few years.
You'll be lucky if you get one to last more than a season, they are expensive, and some harder to attach/remove than others suggesting poor quality control.
The aqua stop feature is very good, as it means that you can disconnect fittings Etc and not get soaked, however do this more than a few times and they will leak.
They used to be fantastic, I have some old ones that are going strong after eight years. Over the last year or two, I seem to be replacing the new ones annually despite ensuring they are drained and frost free in the winter Etc.
They are expensive too, you pay for the name to seems, and I am moving to brass ones at 1/4 of the cost that last much much longer. Buyer beware!
