PVC Spray Hose is a great material for many apps such as agriculture and industry use. However, some people said the hose leaks and fail from the machine. In the meantime, there is no problem of the quality. Here are some general steps to install PVC spray hose.
Gather the necessary tools
You will need a hose cutter, a pair of pliers and the appropriate fittings as well as adapters for the hose.
Prepare the ends of the hose
Use a hose cutter to cut the PVC spray hose to the desired length. Make sure to cut the hose as straight as possible to avoid damaging the hose or fittings. Remove any burrs or rough edges using pliers.
Attach fittings and adapters
Attach the proper fittings and adapters to the ends of the hose. Besides, make sure to use the correct size and type of fittings that match the hose’s diameter and pressure rating. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for tightening the fittings.
Test for leaks
After the fittings are attached, test the hose for leaks. Then, fill the hose with water or air and check for any leaks or drips at the connections. If leaks are detected, tighten the fittings or replace them if necessary.
Install the hose
Install the PVC spray hose in the desired location. Then make sure to avoid sharp bends or kinks. Secure the hose with appropriate clamps or brackets to prevent it from moving or coming loose.
