Urgent help with this big boy backpack!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Can't seem to connect it up right. Could anyone kindly upload or talk me through this please?

 

The small black pipe that screws into backpack, doesn't seem to connect to the main (yellow) pipe at theother end, with anything I have. I know I'm missing something here but just can't fathom it.

Iv got a big boy back pack must have had it 2 year now. Mine black pipe connect's to the pack with a plastic nut which clamps the pipe as it's tightened and the other end I've got a tap with a female rectus fitting I have these taps with rectus fittings fitted to my other trolley system that I've made and my hose reels. You need to fit a tap on the end that your pole can connect to.

That's the black backpack piping on the right Andy,on left are various attachments that came with this unit.

 

Nothing seems a direct fit to that yellow plastic screw thingy you can see at other end of black backpack piping.

 

Confused!

Thanks Lee, failing me getting it together with what I've got here (and after googling what those parts are you mention) I'll just take it all to local plumbing centre tomorrow with your description lol

Andy,that goes directly over the 8mm pipe and snaps on at other end yeah? It's either that or hose tail adaptor I'm needing by looks of it. Haha.

 

Been stressing for days over this too.
