When I use the univalve my system in van leaks


Irelandwindows

Recommended Posts

Any ideas on how to prevent the leak in the van from using the univalve on my pole ? I'm wasting so much water and I'm flooding the front of my van. 

 

I'm a newbie and it's v frustrating. Appreciate any help. It's a steep learning curve:)

Where's the leak in the van? Isn't just as simple as nipping up a jubilee clip

A lot depends on your set up. Have you got a controller on your pump or are you just trying to stop the water flow with a univalve? Is the leak before your pump or after? Could be a million things. Without knowing your setup I will see if I can find that needle in my haystack.

A very common sense fix, if you have water being pushed with the aid of a pump and a univalve installed working as a tap you have insufficient tension on your joints possibly your pump outlet hose or hose reel where you've used hose clamps, jubilee or Double ear O clips 

Common faults

Over sized diameter hoses on barb fittings.

clamps, jubilee or o clips that are not compressed or tightened enough.

Pin hole leaks in worn hose.

this is a case of needing to understand the core basics or plumbing and your system to avoid further problems

Turn your cal down and don't use them hose lock connectors on your system use Jubilee clips
