Vlog 45: A Tap on the Head

The tap that came with the sink unit in the campervan turns out to be rubbish as the pipe junction from the supply tank is just held in with fresh air and hope – in other words, not held in at all, so recently it began spraying water all around the tank area instead of sending it up to the sink. Thus I bought a new tap and fitted that, as shown in this video.

  1. Way to go! Great fix! We can so identify with your situations having traveled in our motorcoach in the US for 10 years. Would not trade the experience for anything though….headaches and all.

  2. Great DIY job as always David, your talent seems to know no bounds !

  3. Hi David, nice fix that!
    I hope you have not yet glued the blue connector pipe to your ‘spare’ tap yet? I’m afraid you’ll find it impossible after that to screw the nut back on, due to the angle in the pipe. Currently I cannot think of a solution other than maybe squeezing a rubber sealant ring in with the connector.
    Anyway, just trying to sound helpful…
    Bye for now, toodle-pip.
