Have been thinking about getting a set of brass hose connectors for the van to stop irritating drips at caravan parks ( not the visitors although if it worked on some people I' buy) Then came accross an add in a magazine for connectors called Hoselink which you can only buy over the net .Anyone used these and or the Brass one and find them better than the Nylex cheap connections

I think I've seen em at Mitre 10, not sure how long ago, but they seem like a good system.

A bit similar in concept to airline quick disconnects I've seen on construction sites. They were metal of course.

I use brass hose connectors on all my house and camper connections and find they are far superior than the cheaper nylex type ones. After all if you pay for quality you get quality.

Cheers

Ive sent away for a couple of sets.

Gday. I had brass connections on the tap and hose at Forster in a caravan park a couple of years ago. Went and played a game of golf and while gone the brass fittings had miraculousy turned to plastic!

Steve,

You wouldn't be able to turn water into wine too, by any chance?

LOL

Sorry Bob Y . One miracle per lifetime is my limit and you must remember, that it was not me that turned brass into plastic. It was indeed a higher er even a lower being. I do confess that I would love to turn water or even cheap wine into Grange Hermitage. I can convert cheap wine into a headache , but I am sure I am not alone.

Rockape I would love to but you need to send the cheque to me first. We would have to agree on a price plus postage etc. Definitely payment before delivery. Those are my terms. Tell your mates. Would you also like some affordable shares in the Sydney Harbour Bridge?

Steve,
I reckon 4 big bucks a bottle would be about a fair price and I think I should get a discount when buying a box, say 3.50 a bottle and please don't change the decimal point in the 3 dollars fifty.
I will have to knock back the offer of some shares in that culvet across your bore drain, to much painting involved

Have a good one

New Boy,

I have had a set of "Hoselink" connections in use on my tank/pump system at home and have not had a problem at all with them in 6 weeks of use, prior to this when using the normal nylex and brass equivalents the pressure would blow the hose off the connector regularly.

I will slowly change over to the product on other hoses around the house over time. I use a "Flat Out" hose on the van and whilst it gets little use in a caravan parks, it does not leak.

Regards,
Jim

just a note be carefull that these fitings are compatible with other hoses and fittings you may have as some of the foriegn imports are a slightly diffent size.bloke next door bought some from hoses and fiitings from supper cheap and didnt match his existing bits and pieces. if you buy the hose and fitting buy the tap addaptor as well. dags
