Inspect hose for damaged hose ends at hose clamp areas. If cracking or swelling of hose end is present
cut end off hose to gain access to a new seal and clamp area, providing hose is long enough. Check
complete hose length for twisted or crushed areas due to improper installation or operation of unit.
Replace as required.
Hose splicing causes a restriction in flow and should only be used as a temporary repair. If hose
damage is present the entire length of hose should be replaced.
(3) Inspect barbed nipples for damage. Nicks, scratches or marks could cause improper sealing of hose. If
damage is present, replace nipple.
Inspect other fittings and adaptors for damaged threads or bodies. Replace fittings as required.
