Leaking hose coupler

Recommended Posts

It’ll take no harm at that, can’t be pulling on it too much or you wouldn’t have managed to join them.

Love that word 'Dowty washer'

 Sounds like a robust Edwardian cleaning lady.

Going to show my age with a “don’t make them like they used to” but never had so many issues over the last couple of years with dowty washers.

 

Some absolute crap about and no logic to it sometimes, you can put a brand new one on and it’ll leak, then pull a used one off an old fitting to keep going, and it’s perfect.

 

As for hoses I try and get Manuli Rockmaster now for the attachments especially, seems to last the distance.

It's very likely you just need to replace the coupler. Anyway, I dare to advice you, just to take the wrench first and tighten the old one a little, maybe that’s just it.
