Was at the plumbing store this PM picking up my new kitchen sink (don't
ask, a small repair got out of control) and asked for some new lines to
hook it up. guy handed me a pair of hoses with stainless overbraid,
SWMBO looked at them and said "hey, those look just like those fuel
lines you got for the Porsche" and I actually started thinking...
wouldn't it just kick a$$ to plumb from the angle stop to my toilet with
the real deal Aeroquip AN hose and fittings... real subtle but if a
real "car guy" ever used my facilities and noticed it... now I know I
could get a NPT to AN fitting from the angle stop, but how would I hook
it up to the fill valve?
(apparently a very sick man)
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
You can't see the fill valve, so take your AN hose to a specialty shop
along with the old fill valve inlet hardware and have them swage it
together. You are going to spring for purple anodized aren't you? And
post pics for us? <G>
I was thinking going with the classic red and blue. I guess I could
use a short hard line then put a 37 degree flare on it then connect to
Of course, this will happen immediately after I find a car for SWMBO,
because she knows how much AN hose and fittings cost since I told her
(significantly less than stock fuel hoses for a Porsche, but
significantly more than a standard toilet hookup...) and her Corrado
is still apart in the garage, in part due to the constant workload of
little around-the-house stuff that doesn't work quite right... (she
likes driving the Porsche, but not enough to buy it from me and call
it hers. For some reason she thinks they're expensive to run and
I might have some leeway as I just ordered a "correct" tubular latch
and doorknobs for the bathroom... what kind of idiot would replace a
nice vintage tubular latch with a POS *BRASS* Kwikset latch for a
bathroom... especially one without a vent fan? Of course they drilled
out the one old door that is actually in excellent shape, so I have to
use big rosettes that don't match the rest of the house... GRR. I
did it right and ordered one brass knob and rosette and one chrome
