I have a TCS Chief which I love but I can not keep a swivel on the live real. I went through 2 super swivels and another brand all stainless steel. We use propane heat at a max of 1000 psi for tile. It gets HOT so I think that may be my problem. Any suggestions on a better swivel? was also using a super swivel on the tile tool and it started leaking too. The new swivel I put on today has already locked up.

Just ordered two 90 Degree Swivel for the Turbo Force TH-40 Tile Tool. I will let you guys know how those work. I assume they can handle the heat and pressure.

interested to hear, thanks. We run cox reels live and recently replaced the swivels with a high temp upgraded seal but they also failed to handle propane water temps.

Ok guys. So far so good on the Turbo swivel. I put it on yesterday and a note to self if you want to go this way. You will need a reducer to fit the big end reduce it down to fit your solution line. I happened to have a few extra inline solution strainers and the female part of the strainer worked perfect. I did have to use a thick layer of teflon tape and tighten it really good to eliminate a slight drip. I will try to get some pics later.

Will the hoses cook if you don’t unreal what you don’t use on job? If they stay coiled up on reel while working I mean

If you flip flop the bottom of the reel to the top after 1 year you can get 2 years easy. Only filling a reel with what you really use helps too, overloading the reel because you can is not the best plan.
