Cold water tank

Postby CREMATIST » Fri May 08, 2009 2:33 pm

Fitting to water inlet works loose and leaks after a period of time.[/b] Flexi hose has been fitted to ball valve inlet, but still works loose over time . Vibration? Very small work space maybe not fitted properly? (2 x plumbers) Is there any thing on the market easy fitt?

Sounds like the plastic nut is worn. Just visit your local plumbers merchant and get a new one.

Renew fitting - Whatever that fitting may be.

Without more info you wont get much help.

Why does it work loose, never touched ? never knocked ? just comes undone ? pipes vibrating alot ? pipework clipped to stop vibration ?
