Hozelock Fitting For Filling...?


Shine Window Cleaning

Recommended Posts

I've got a flat 350litre tank with large circular cap for filling, and i currently remove it and put hose in to filI.

 

I wondered if I cut a small hole in cap, attached a hozelock fitting to it and its counter-part on my filling hose to make a 'quick-release' type attachment for filling, wether it would effect pressure in my tank or cause any other problems?

That's what I have done and is fine.

 

I have got a spare kit for it as well

cheers Damo- finger on the pulse as always with helpful advice!

Inlet One is for filling.

Inlet Two is for my bilge pump (so i can fill 25L drums in 30 seconds or less)

Blue filter is an air vent.

 

Last hole will be for a waterproof electrical connector for 12v bilge pump.

 

I have used elbows so i can basically adjust the angles.
