    Just been filling up the van and noticed that my Hazelock aquastop has started leaking. Tried moving it about but still no joy. It's a plastic cheapo one by the hose reel. Shall I just replace with a new one?

    Make sure the hose 'clamp' is tight. Also make sure that the plastic lugs that hold the hose coupling onto the male fitting are working and not broken. There used to be three lugs on the older ones, now there are just 2 on the newer ones. If broken/damaged, then replace the whole unit. Check the O ring on the male coupler. Those plastic lugs catch them and damage them, so replacing the O ring will usually stop the leak. We smear it with a thin wipe of Vaseline for lubrication.
