New tap

Freshwater headerBack to the real work...

Here I've finally got around to replacing a troublesome water feed tap on my main engine's freshwater header tank.

A pretty straightforward job, once I had all the bits.

The new plastic pipe you can see in the foreground replaces the old one, as I had to remove that piece to get the old tap off and the new one on.

What was pretty shocking to me, was the fact that the old jubilee clips holding the piping on had all rusted away to the extent where they just pulled away off the piping as soon as I tried to loosen their screws.

Needless to say, that was the catalyst for me to order a few additional hose clips - just in case there is a similar issue elsewhere.
