What are the best hose fittings (opinions please)?

As with most of us I currently use the hoselock type click fittings for my WFP van system. I use them on my DI vessel, on the inlet and outlet of the pre-filters, same on the 40/40 membrane, hose...and so on.

They all eventually leak and I seem to change the one on the hose weekly as they constantly leak.

Is there anything that is reasonaly priced that lasts a little longer as it is costing me a fortune?

Thanks Nearly.

Oddly enough I have a load of these connections as they were given to me when I bought various parts for my system by the shop but I just stored them away as I never knew what they were for.

Next question then - my van system uses standard garden hose to connect the various parts (assume 12mm) and then on my rear bumper I have a four connection plate fitted so I can work with the van locked. The fitments are standard hoselock so 12mm is fine as is my hose width which is 8mm minibore (I bought this as I assumed this is the standard WFP hose to use) but I doubt I can place 6mm microbore straight into a hoselock connection.

DO you thread a few inches of the micro into the mini and hoseclip it or is there :shy:a more professional way?

I was not aware that some WC use microbore as there standard hose. This must be a lot eeasier as the 8mm is bloody heavy.

Perfect set-up - never happen!

I spend hours tinkering then someone posts a new set up on this site and I actually find myself getting jealeous.

I think I may soon starting living in the van LOL.

Must be a mid-life crisis!!!!!
