I had this from way back when but did all new plumbing using my old bex nozzles. Any other suggestions are welcome

    And excuse the prop rod, lol .... it sat for a number of years buried with crap on top and its a bit deformed. Some sun would be nice finally instead of flooding so I could get it to maybe loosen up :)

    Next will be to set the tank back up with a new spray bar :) - and maybe start dipping again after 5 years off.

    I am gonna add a spray bar in front too - but out of necessity - I have it plugged by the rear ball valve that equalizes pressure so no water was going to get to the left side, DOH!!! All fixed now :) Plus I had a few extra bex nozzles, should create quite a shower in there lol.

    Where did you get those nozzles?
  • DeviousDipsDeviousDips Posts: 1,514Member ✭✭✭✭
    @rwrogers11 us plastics carrys them. Look for K-ball Bex spray nozzles

    @rwrogers11
    I may have a few extra laying around that I would get rid of. Let me know if you need some.
  • norcalfranknorcalfrank Posts: 972Member ✭✭✭
    So how do those nozzles work? Do you drill a hole in the pipe and just clip them on?
  • DeviousDipsDeviousDips Posts: 1,514Member ✭✭✭✭
    @norcalfrank yep. They have different size spray nozzles and it will tell you the recommended hole size

    I don't want to thread hijack, but have any of you seen something like a flexible hose, that will stay bent where you bend it, say 6 or 8 inches long? I have regular shower heads with 6" pipe nipples in my home built IBC rinse station and work pretty good, but the pipe nipple parts needs to be flexible. Only thing I have seen is the stuff they use for natural gas or propane flexible hose, but it's way too long and trying to adapt gas and pipe thread is always a pain.

    We use these for coolant lines at my job and they work great. I don't know how big of line you can get, we use the 1/4 ones but u can get different sprayers for the ends

    @DeviousDips same thing I would recommend. They make different sizes, you may have to look around a bit, but it works GREAT.
  • norcalfranknorcalfrank Posts: 972Member ✭✭✭
    Thanks guys, I have been looking at that exact same thing, but the nozzles are very small. Might be able to cut them back some and heat and pinch them so they are not shooting a straight stream. Would like to find some that were a little larger, but haven't so far.

    Those have a gas pipe thread, not water pipe thread. There ma be an adapter, but I haven't found one yet. I looked into these at one point.

    Ok may be a little hokey but...

    What's the black tape for?
  • robodadrobodad Posts: 3Member

    What's the black tape for?

    I took a water mixer hose (basically just a water hose that "Y"'s and attached some big copper grounding wire to it with the electrical tape, thats what helps keep it pointed where I want it then some fittings from hose to pipe and then to the 3/4" pvc "T".

    Told you it was hokey but should work for what I need it for !! ;)

    I ended up trying a couple of these after finding adapters. The work fine except they are real stiff, so you have to be carefull when bending them.
