    I need help with the connectors on my resin bottles. At present I use Hozelock connectors but in the past few weeks I have used brass ones and aquastop ones but they just all seem to leak.

    I have read on here that John Guest produce really good connectors but which ones would be suitable for my bottles. I have attached a picture to give you an idea of the sort of bottle I have.

    The connectors have to be able to connect to normal sized garden hose diameter as that's what I use for my tank.

    [SIZE=10.5pt]Might be a silly question but why have you got a di tank in your van?[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=10.5pt]I produce pure water from a static ro/di system also harvest purified rainwater so have no need to have a di or ro connected up it in the van in the first place. [/SIZE]

    They leak on me constantly. I was thinking of going down the route of harvesting the rainwater and then I don't need to have the bottles in the van. Sometimes I like the option if I run out of water that I can top up at customers homes.

    [SIZE=10.5pt]Best treat yourself to a new di tank or try replacing the complete di head assembly as I can see by the pic you have red tape around that too so I'm guessing that tends to leak from there as well. [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=10.5pt]Or the cheaper option might be is to find somewhere that sells replacement di connectors & seals. So I would give some suppliers a call to find out the best way to fix it myself.[/SIZE]

    Thanks for the reply. The red tape is my own way of distinguishing between bottles. I have the red tape in the middle as one strip for bottle 1 and two strips for my bottle 2. I see how it looks like I have taped it up though.

    I only get the leaks off the Hozelock type connectors.
