Are replacement O-rings available for the plugs?
Does the socket stop the water flow when I remove the plug from it?
No. The plug cannot be removed while under pressure. The water pressure must be first turned off before the quick-connect set can be separated. There are two methods of doing this. First, by shutting the water off back at the faucet/water source. The second method is to install a ball valve directly before the socket. (See photo) This will allow you to shut the water off right at the quick-connect set, without having to return to the faucet/water source. Eley offers two garden hose ball valves that work perfectly for this application, our straight Garden Hose Ball Valve and our Swivel Garden Hose Ball Valve.
How will these perform in freezing temperatures?
You'll likely have some difficulty. Even with water flowing in freezing environments, it doesn't take much moisture to cause the brass parts to stick together. In particular, it may be challenging to get the sleeve on the socket to slide to disengage the plug. The quick-connect sets were designed to operate in above freezing conditions.
Is this product safe to use for drinking water?
Yes. These fittings are made from lead-free brass.
Are they compatible with other brands of quick-connectors?
What maintenance is required?
Depending on the frequency of use, the O-rings on the plugs should periodically be coated with a thin layer of Silicone Grease. This will not only improve the performance of the quick-connect set but also increase the life of the O-rings.
