Anyone have one of these? Does yours leak like a maniac? I got one off ebay and it leaks like crazy. I was just curious if anyone else had this problem. I have my entire water system hooked up and ready to go, but this one piece is pouring out like the flood waters over the dikes in N.O. during Katrina.

It does have a rubber washer. I took the "top" cover off of it. It may possibly be a loose fitting on the inside. If the ebay seller will not take it back I will add some plumbers tape and tighten it down real tight and see if it leaks then.

I would try to change out washers and o-rings if any. Have seen them dry out and start leaking.

The washer was not dry rotted at all. He said the thing was "brand new", however he shipped it to me in a box that looked like it went down with the Titantic, was re-surfaced, then taped together for shipment. I may just have to eat the loss of the 12 dollars. I just hate it because I am trying to finish my water system before Brimstone on Memorial Day weekend.

They have to be dry rotten to leak. I have learned the hard way with them. Just a thought. And like you said might have to use plumbers tape or dope.

Dope?? I should maybe call Foxfire's connection for some of that....... roflmao

Just kidding. I will try anything to get it to work right and not leak. Other than that the thing worked like a charm tonight when I hooked it to a battery.

Hooked to the battery? Is the battery for a pump? If so the pump would release pressure off the line.

Yes, I have a 12v pump hooked to a battery to push the water up to the water hose adapter and into the water heater. I think I can get it right.......just need to tweak it. I am just frustrated because of all of the problems I have run into.
