You can order it online, only about £3 delivery, probably the same you'd spend travelling to the store and back.

Yes the Mrs pointed that out and why waste an extra £20 ish on the hoselock, i've got no patience though, want to see if I can sort it tonight, i'll be cursing though if that doesn't sort it, don't suppose Argos will take back a unwrapped used hose

If it’s of help, I got what looks to be very similar to this from Asda before I got my Hozelock - was okay in the warm weather and you could not link it for your life, but in the cold, it was a nightmare to use - very difficult to unwind, very stiff and unwieldy. Obviously don’t know if the Aldi one is the same...

Got rid and bought the Hozelock - no issues using this during cold weather.

I can heartily recommend the Fitt hose from Screwfix, I got a 30m one last summer to replace an ageing hoselock hose.

It is very good quality, does not kink, and winds quite easily in winter, as I used mine up until the really cold snap in February.

I run a Nilfisk on my hose and the replacement seems to make the washer more comfortable delivering sustained pressure, but that may have been because my old Hoselock was close to past it.

Yes I'm cursing the problem isn't with by old knackered hose' collected the hoselock ultimate on the way home from work and the pressure washer is still playing up (much better flow from it though). Looks like its the pressure washer that's got the problem Off to the service department with it, only 3 months old as well.

It's not, the Aldi is a genuine Fitt NTS hose designed to be anti-kink. I've been using the one I got for over a year now with no problems.
