Hi all

I have a Whale in line pump that uses the 10mm to 13mm adaptors because the tube is 13mm that are cracked and leaking.

From what I can see these adaptors are not available as a separate item and cannot think of any other standard plumbing bit that is similar. Maybe I am missing the obvious ....

Any suggestions welcome - seems hard to believe you have to purchase a complete new pump to get the adaptors, or muck around with some 10mm tubing and convert that up to 13mm by other adaptors.

Hi Ken,

I had the same problem a while back - I went the 10mm tube way.

I had the same problem, glued them on with good quality modellers glue, then used JB Weld to fill the crack, sanded smooth and no more problems in over ten years.
I was using them for diesel transfer which they are rated for.

Thanks for the reply

These are completely different to any of the Shurflo fittings I know of - they are not threaded and are a bush 10mm smooth inside that fits the over 10mm outlet of the pump and 13mm smooth outside with a "barb" one end for fitting the 13mm pipe.

I have gone the "repair it myself" option as I need it workign tomorrow.

Thanks for all replies.

I have gone the "fix it myself" opton as I need it working tomorrow - bit rough but I used a little Roof and Gutter sealant to hold it together and seal the cracks (one of the bushes was in 3 pieces when I got it out of the tube). Maybe this is not the best option but time was against me. Maybe I will re-visit the modellers glue option later as suggested.

I had a look at Whitworths but still could not see these as a "spare part" there and certainly nothing listed I can see on the Whale website.

It all started by me putting a check valve in the system as the current set up let the water drain back to the tank and I had to hand pump the water before I could use the Whale pump.
