The problem with seals blowing is that frost gets in to them and they go hard and fracture, as soon as you put it under pressure at the first bit of Easter sunshine they pop. Doesn't happen every time, or with every brand, but that is the main problem. So put them in a box, wrap them up and leave some lettuce in the shed for it.
This what has happened with my mum's , as I found when I got soaked just the other week. Looks like it's an integral bit of the hose too so would need whole new hose. I ended up wrapping the leaking bit with a roll of insulating tape and dressing like a Fleetwood trawlerman to avoid the soaking. It worked to a degree

I don't know enough about them to answer that N,I assume there is a rubber "o ring" inside the lance that is prone to splitting.
Taking pics of some of the places you see is DANGEROUS . I do not condone or encourage breaking the law or unsafe behavior.
