Bravo Pump Hose, spares?

Hi all.

Having received my bargain Bravo pump today I'm now looking for a replacement hose for it, or as a minimum the connector that attaches to the pump.

Does anyone know if the hose from the bravo footpumps is the same?
As these appear to be readily available.

Or does anyone have a contact to purchase spares?
My Googling skills are obviously starting to fail with old age.

Thanks

Nasher.

Failing that, if i remember correctly you're handy with the lathe. Could you turn one? I can give you dimensions off my connector but as you already have the pump that should give you what you need?

Thanks leapy

Iíve had a better look at the connector this morning, and was surprised to see itís just a push-on fit.
I was assuming it locked on somehow because of the higher pressures itís capable of.

As youíve suggested, 1/2hr on the lathe immediately sprung to mind, I know Iíve some Aluminium and some Ultem bar in a big enough size stashed in the garage, just need to decide which to use.

Iíd make it so the fitting goes over the outlet stub rather than inside it, I assume thatís how the original works.

Thanks for the offer but I'll just measure the OD and go from there.

It did make a rather amusing Ďfartyí noise when I tried it last night.

A piece of correctly sized garden hose works well if you can fit it to the adaptors at each end. A heat gun allows for undersized hose corrections.

John

No worries, although the output on mine was to fit a bit of pipe I purchased.

Let me know what size you need the stub to be.

The standard hose just pushes straight on without a connector and I was thinking it might be more robust if it used a adaptor like yours. I don't know if it's really worthwhile to be honest!
