    Short length of garden hose onto a length of 15mm copper to the nearest drain.

    I bought an expensive FITT hose from Screwfix (this one, I think: Fitt 30m Heavy Braided NTS Wintech Hose ). Very good. Almost impossible to kink but soft enough to go onto draw-off cocks.

    Can't understand why you would spend the money on a non-reinforced rubber hose that explodes under mains pressure and collapses under vacuum when this works well both as a drain off and under pressure! Perhaps someone can explain?

    Have got the same and definitely good piece of a kit. Even though the price is quite high but worth spending when working a lot on central heating systems.

    I got fed up with garden hoses kinking, coiling up terribly and getting crushed under suction when draining down!
