water hose from deck to gland

Post by Dan Corcoran » Sun Aug 05, 2018 12:23 pm

Water Hose Replacement
The 1 1/2 inch groovy white flexible water hose on the starboard side cracked in four places along a seam as I added water to the port side gland.

Filling up one gland potentially trapped air and compressed the air in the other to the point of bursting? Or is it just old (10 yrs)

Can I replace this with anything, or is this special hose meant to burst to protect the water glands?

Water Tank Selector
It's very difficult to twist the knobs for port & starboard water selection, they pop out if not turned very slow. Is that normal, or a sign they will soon need to be replaced? Where to find parts? What is the effort to replace them?

hi Dan,
I’m just about to start the job of replacing the water bladders, and fill an discharge hoses all the way from the fill fittings to the strainer/pressure pump. Bladders will be here Saturday. I’ll let you know how it goes and take a few pictures.
