Supposedly going in the water
next week after a year out and there's a couple of tasks that are vexing me.
I bought a Trident regulator
and pigtail. I have a solenoid that was recomended on another site, but it appears to be the same solenoid included with the Fireboy Solenoid/Switch/Sniffer kit that I bought. I'm tryiing to it it all working together.
I'm good from the tank to the regulator
1) After the regulator I'm trying to get to the solenoid. The solenoid thread is smaller than the regulator. I'm not sure where I got it, but I have a step up fitting that goes from the solenoid to the regulator, and the thread matches up (I can screw it in) BUT it's a very loose fit. It bottoms out at the collar of the fitting and that's the only time that it tightens down. I assume this is bad, right? That's not made to be filled with tape I hope? There is probably .5mm of play between the fitting and the regulator.
2) After the solenoid, I'm trying to get to the hose, I think the hose is 3/4" female flare (?) but not sure what the solenoid is.
I'm really confused how they sell the regulator and hose but it doesn't come with these fittings?
Can anyone tell me what I need to do to connect regulator->solenoid->hose?
