    Hi all, just ordered my new controller+pump to set up for 2 man set-up in van,

    all i need now is a decent Y splitter to add into garden hose from tank to connect up the 2 pumps.

    any links to a good Y splitter. i think i may be best with a brass one to jubillee clip the hose onto for peace of mind, dont want leaks . like this one y piece.jpg
    do any of you use hozelock ones.
    ill look in wilkinsons tomorrow

    Ive just set up my 2 man system too and yes im using the hozelock 'y' splitter and push fit connections. All seems well so far and its all completely watertight with no leaks at all. Only time will tell i suppose. As long as the connections are tight and they aren't being pulled about then i hope these will last. Let me know how you get on with the brass splitter

    keir i havent got it yet, i went to wilkinsons today to get a hozelock y splitter, i got stumped as how to attatch it to my tank tap or even hose, is it possible for you to send me a pic of how you have connected yours up keir, i was hoping to get it set-up today.
    i looked at the hozelock y splitter but couldnt fathom out what to connect into the screw thread to connect it upto hose or tank tap pushfit end,

    Are you guys splitting off at the pole hose? Or from the pump running two reels?

    i thought i could get one to fit onto my water tank tap, to push fit it onto tap, with 2 on/off switches. easier to disconnect when needed.
