Boy I sure blow through these quick . Nothing worse then have it start dripping off the TM connection . The water box gets emptied.
The Parkers go the fastest .
The Foster brand seemed to last longer .
I switched a older one no name but stainless and will see if it lasts, it was years old already.
Who has the best luck with which brand name ?

The 1st one off the truckmount always gets the brunt of the abuse probably from heat.
I finally just took a male disconnect and put a 1/4" hex plug in it and plugged it in when I finished a job. No more dripping.

Prochem units don't allow for a behind the panel whip to the live solution reel and still have "extra" panel QC's because of the proprietary manifold.

Personally, I would hard plumb that off the panel with 5000 psi hose to the live reel and not use a QC period. My inner gangster sez "Fück the Police!".

dang, I never had that problem but only run 200-210. If you did that in Wisconsin in winter you would end up with an ice skating rink in the driveway.

and a lot of liability.

you can use a shut off valve before the quick connect, thats what I have just have to be sure the quick connect does not hit your door as it will stick out a couple of inches

Ya I'm curious why your wasting time and money and not just going to a live reel? That's seems rediculous to have to connect like that. If you have to ya get a shut off before it. It's the rings that go bad, both brands still offer with or with out vitons I believe.

One Blue Summer , I buy O rings and rebuild them unless the center pin is crooked and leaks .
