Avoid having to turn the tap off when changing spray accessories with this handy Aqua Stop hose connector.
The connector has a robust internal valve that shuts off the water flow whenever a spraying accessory is disconnected - which means no wasted water, nor interruptions to your watering while you go and turn the tap off and on again.
Its zinc die-cast sleeve makes it strong, durable and scratch-resistant, while the large bump ring protects cars, greenhouses, etc from damage. All internal parts are made from ultra-tough engineering plastics for a long leak-free life.
The connector will fit securely to any 12.5mm or 15mm hose thanks to barbs that connect it with both the inside and outside. A triple locking system means the tap connection is guaranteed secure up to 10 bar.
Kinking, swelling or leaking at the connection point is practically eliminated due to the flexible hose-tail on the nut, and soft touch pads make the sleeve comfortable to handle with a secure grip even when wet.
