Default Rear wash wipe connection again

My rear wash wipe has stopped working and am getting a nice pool of water behind the front wheel when parked in the garage, question is what is the actual cause of this happening is it down to poor flow

through the pipe and the weak link is the 90 degree connector in the car which breaks loose?

Both jets were blocked but connection was still intact so easy fix

My rear screen jet gets blocked about 2 or 3 times a year.

I used one of these tools from Draper to clear blocked jets, its better than a large pin/needle. Available on Amazon for £7.99.

Draper Expert 03322 Vehicle Washer Jet Cleaning Tool

The rear washer jet blocked up again over the weekend and the Draper tool called into action, sorted no problem.

Fitted new nozzle so problem with corrosion should be cured for a good few years,
