All main club hoses have been fitted with new connectors which have been fitted using epoxy glue. They can only be removed by cutting the hose and cannot then be reused elsewhere.
There should be no need to remove connectors other than to replace due to fair wear and tare.
If members are using their own private equipment needing alternate type of connector, they should provide themselves with an adaptor hose length.
Past practice of constant removal of connectors has caused damage to them, loss of them etc. Greatly hampering working of the Club.
