Cockpit Shower Leaking

It seems almost impossible to find an end fitting or replacement hose long enough (plenty of 1.5m hoses, we need a 3m one) to fix a leak in the swaged fitting immediately before the shower head in the cockpit shower. Any one out there solved this problem or have any suggestions.

Re: Cockpit Shower Leaking

It has a tap to turn it off so is it just an issue when using the shower? Maybe wrap some self amalgamating tape around the leak. That stuff works well.

Might have to buy two hoses and accept the fitting in the middle that joins them, or get bulk hose and install your own ends

Re: Cockpit Shower Leaking

Unfortunately Monte the tap is on the shower head after the leaking joint and A64pilot the hose has to thread back through a small hole so I am not keen on a solid nipple between two hoses.. The amalgamating tape was looking good till I went to Whitworths (an amazing boating chain store in Australia) and found the exact hose needed. Problem solved.
