Customer Questions Stem:
Why do I need to use the stem? Because it provides a better fit and seal than simply inserting a hose into the connector. For more information please see below.
Helpful Information Straight Connector:
JG type of fittings work well with extruded thermoplastic tube that has a smooth outer surface. However the connector works less well with braided hose. We suggest therefore that a stem insert is used rather than relying on the hose to seal.
Although it is possible to remove the stem from the connector, we do not recommend this is repeatedly done. Also we recommend that the connector is used either within the pole or at the top of the pole near the pole brush. The fitting is not as robust as Rectus 21 or Hoselock fittings that are often used in connecting hose before or outside the pole.
