Hi

Can you use a JG Speedfit connector to an Aqualisa processor box (newer black unit with plastic outlets)?. Aqualisa sell there own specific black plastic connections but they look just like the Speedfit units and i already have some of these?

The inlet/outlet pipes on the box are stiff so i cannot see the need for the inserts as they are not likely to deform. My only concern is whether aqualisa has picked a unique pipe size so that you have to buy their connections at 8quid each?

Any shared knowledge greatly appreciated.

Thanks

The inlets/outlet are just a standard 15mm. The processor comes with the black isolator pushfit valves you just need to connect in the pipework which they recommend to be copper.

Hi,

Im working my way through the chnaging of the fittings. Ive had to unscrew the processor inlets to help get the old speedfit connections off. Inside the black processory connections is a cone shaped filter and o-ring. Im now stuck remeber if the cone filter is pointy end pointing into the processor or out? ( it looks like it can go both ways). Also does the O ring go between the filter and processor or between the filter cone and stubby inlet?

The unit is such a pian to get to that I can try and see? Any help appreciated as this is a bit a drama this end with water turned off until its back together!

Thanks

Mark

Thanks for the reply. I did see those but actually these are the actual pics that started me questioning it as the filter cones are pointing into the processor which mean you have to push past a piece of plastic / flap which just seems odd as you are forcing this part open by putting the filter cone inwards??

(Update: on reading Simon Harts post, someone else noted that their cone filter was also point out away from processor not inwards as per his picture)

I do agree that the shape of the filter would make me think tip of the cone with the flow...but it just seemed odd to push it into another bit thats it there........?
