Cox Reel Swivels Suggestions:

1.  Do not hang any extra weight on swivel.  It will reduce swivel life.

2.  Be sure input hose to swivel has slack to allow swivel to rotate.  If swivel can't rotate, swivel life will be reduced.

3.  Inspect swivel regularly for leaks.  

4.  Rebuild swivel as soon as it starts to leak.  Leaks will get worse quickly.

5.  Keep an extra swivel rebuild kit on hand so you don't have to live with leaks.

Cox makes a number of different types of hose reel swivels and hose reel swivel o-ring types.

Your swivel can usually be rebuilt a few times before the metal becomes too worn and needs to be replaced. 

Replace your swivel with the same model as was originally on your reel.  See list of all Cox Swivels below.

Cox Reels makes hose reel swivels out of 3 different materials.  The material type is reflected in the swivel part number.

For example:

426     SWIVEL,  3/4"NPT,  NITRILE
426-1  SWIVEL,  3/4"NPT,  VITON
426-2  SWIVEL,  3/4"NPT,  EPM/EPDM

For most pest control and landscape applications, we like the Viton orings.
