    leak

    hi there,

    I was making a positive pressure test on my ybod, and it wouldn't hold

    I sprayed soapy water all around and found a leak on the Red arrow spot. It's a custom made av1 head.

    changed all rings, and tried Changing the hose orientation, but the leak persisted.

    what can be done to fix it?

    Re: leak

    Is it coming from the hose or the fitting?

    If it's a split in the hose, shorten it by cutting the split out. If it's the fitting, unscrew the outer from the inner and reseat the clamping threads. Instructions for removing the fittings are in the link below (pg 33) but a little tip not in the instructions, I found dunking the end of the "old clamped version" in a cup of boiling water expanded it enough to stop the two halfs spinning, just find something to wedge in the end if you don't have the fancy tool in your kit.

    Re: leak

    The only way it can leak at the arrow is if the hose is split. That hose looks like the old fitting, so you'll need to get the tool and remove the hose end to have a look and confirm.

    If you have a spare-hose this will help, the very old hose has symmetric threads so you can use the mouthpiece. The later hoses do not.

    Matt.

    What do you mean? Have you unscrewed from the head and attached to the tee piece and vise versa with the other end?

    PS how are you liking your Av1?, what do you use as a secondary? I have a ver2 with the battery in the handset.

    Ha ha yer Ive got my old VRx single cell plumbed in at present.

    As for your hose issue, I would remove the plastic fittings from both ends of the hose and do the same with the other hose from the exhale t piece to the snorkel of the scrubber canister and swop hoses over and rebuild and test again.
