Unscrewing di vessel top - any tips?


Recommended Posts

Mine are the devils own job to get off. Drives me crazy.


I wedge the vessel between my legs gripping a pair of rubber gloves to prevent slide. Put on another pair of gloves and then hurt my hands whilst I struggle to get the thing to unscrew.


This morning I cant move the damn thing..............

Sounds like a job for........2 people!


I find that the pair of DI vessels I use can be quite difficult to undo after a few months of use. I get my long-suffering wife to firmly hold the base of the DI vessel and using the fittings on the head to grab on to I unscrew the vessel head. I find that this works well.

yeh i have noticed a lot of swearing since i started wfp....:rolleyes: especially at the bloody pipe work...


My son says that wfp will soon discover if you prone to any Tourette's syndrome tendencies. This is why he mainly uses his backpack as there are no hoses to get tangled up.


What I find amasing is how my wfp hose is able to get so tangled up. Dragging your hose out to the furthest point and working back seems work in theory but not always in practice.

I just need to remember to make sure there is water in the damn thing when opening the di as I broke the down pipe a few months ago opening it when resin had clearly dried in tight around the down pipe.

Not being funny but the key is to screw the top tightly but not over-tightly. Then its a doddle to unscrew when needed. If the top is not absolutely flat and level when you screw it onvessel then your going to have problems taking it off again! If you start to have resistance when screwing lid on then unscrew immediately and rinse threads of any resin and screw back completely level. This way you wont need poles and arms like popeye to unscrew!
