Quick Connector Checking Tips For Water Wheels and Couplings
In order to maintain proper flow of quick connectors, the fluid power on the tools must be checked frequently. To do this, use a very small amount of fluid in the filter housing, slide the tool back in and allow the new tools to fill the housing with fluid.
When you are sure that there is enough fluid power left in the housing, remove the tool from the hose and allow it to cool off. Then, replace the power connection by using new connectors, the same as replacing the tools.
Inspect the seals, and make sure that the air valve has not become clogged with debris. Take care of the filter and inspect it for any build up or problems that may be present.
When a problem is found, the correct tool is available, which will solve the problem. When the tool is replaced, test the tools again.
Any leaky connection is usually an easy job to fix in the inspection section of the tool. A simple procedure to check the leak is to put a little lubricant on the connector end of the hose and push the connector through the small crack.
Once the seal is in place, spray the seal with water to clean out any debris and rinse thoroughly with a hose. When everything is clear, reassemble the tools and test them again.
Sealing the tools will help prevent leaks. If you notice that the fluid level in the tools is lower than normal, it may be due to some type of blockage that could be removed with the right tools.
There are specific tools that are designed to clear the blockage and get the proper seal back into place. A short burst of water and a bit of soap will clear the blockage, allowing the tool to fill the housing with fluid, making it function properly again.
There are some tools that are built with special seals and guide pins, designed to eliminate the blockage problem. Using a special seal and guide pins can take care of any problems that could occur from clogging in the filters.
Some tools have a very important feature. For tools that will move on or off the water wheel, the couplings need to be in the correct position.
If you are looking to remove a pipe or fitting that is connected to the water wheel, you need to be able to use the tools without taking them out of the wheel. The two tools used to do this are the pliers and a wrench.
In addition, the tools are used to remove and reattach the couplings to and from the tools. The two tools required to use the tools correctly is a pair of pliers and a wrench.
