How many times have you been caught needing to repair a break or a leak either late in the day or on a weekend? That time consuming drive to town for one fitting to complete the repair when you have so many more important things you could be doing.
By being prepared and having a few essentials on hand you’ll save yourself time and possibly precious water. Being prepared doesn’t mean having a whole shop full of fittings in your shed but just a few items of the most commonly used sizes used on your property. To help you out we’ve prepared a shopping list for when you are next heading to town to visit your CRT dealer.
Our list includes a number of Philmac BSP fittings which are super handy in loads of situations, pipe risers, rural saddles and of course one of the new Philmac Quick Tap Kits.
With these items on hand not only can you make that emergency repair but you can also be proactive and with a coil of Vinidex rural pipe and a star picket you can put a new tap at the end of the veggie garden or near the dog run.
The photos in this article show a typical example of an on farm repair of a leaking galvanised fitting coupled to a PE pipe riser and how even in a tricky situation you can repair a leak. This is just one example of the many problems that can be solved by having a few fittings on hand in your shed.[key_points]
