I've got leaking fittings

  • Updated

If you've got issues with your HOTTAP, fittings, hoses etc having water leaks.

  1. Tighten all the fittings, including the blue & red male connectors that are attached to HOTTAP, making sure to check that they have rubber o-rings installed inside them.
  2. Tighten all grey quick connectors by tightening the end nut that sits around the hoses. 
  3. If the above doesn't work, you can try removing the end nut and inspecting the end of the hose and the barb fitting. Ensure that the barb is clean and well defined without any excess bits of plastic that could cause problems with a tight seal.

  4. Check that the hose end is seated correctly and has been cut at a right angle to the barb. If you see that the hose has been cut at an angle you can remove it and cut it straight and reinstall. hose barb 2.jpghose barb 3.jpg
