    Hi folks, every spring when I come to pressure wash the patio I have terrible trouble with the outlet connector fixing on to the pressure hose on my old type Karcher. I eventually manage to screw it on but then getting it off after use is a bloomin nightmare. Does anyone know of a quick repair or adaptor I can purchase to make this much easier.

    Hope you can help.

    Put a smear of grease in and around the connectors, that usually does the trick.

    Coat the connector with red rubber grease - lasts for ages and doesn't rot the 'O' ring!
