Quick Disconects
I see Gary and RDK using quick disconects. Are these the ones you can get at US Plastics? Which ones are they? Also, do these just make it easy to remove the hose or do they also prevent the solution from coming out after you have disconected the hose? Thanks for any replies/help.

RE: Quick Disconects
They are much more expensive than barbed fittings.
They will not work with vacuum (not that I use it)
They are open inside, no leak stoppage.
They are easier to remove hoses. That is what they're good for.

You can get them at Lowes and Home Depot also. I use them for the fitting between the cell and car.

Agreed. LOTS more $$ (was it worth it? YES!!)
Don't know (don't use vacuum either)
Yup, just open flow 24/7 365
Love for removing hoses. They also don't warm the formation of hose over time which means no stretched ends over time. YAY!!!

I got mine at ACE Hardware. I guess I should have gone to Home Depot though, I'm sure they're cheaper there (what isn't??). If you can buy them in bulk online, they will be your #1 best friend ever. Been using things like these (metal ones) for paintball for years. Too bad I quit to start a new hobby, HHO!! lol

P.S. WHAT THE HECK?!?! There's no more auto-subscribe to posts that I've done option anymore?! How will I know when people reply now lol! I hate having to manually click "Subscribe to thread" all the time Sad . EDIT again: Haha, just kidding! I checked and hey, I'm already subscribed to some threads! Now I just have to figure out how I un-subscribed from my own thread earlier... *sci-fi music*

My Car:
2006 Toyota Solara 2.4L 4cyl.
-Aftermarket (JPP) header
-DNX exhaust
-Injen Short-Ram Intake (SRI)

RE: Quick Disconects
Thanks Guys. Well, I guess I'll use up the barbed fittings for testing and get a couple of the quick disconnects for the car install.

RE: Quick Disconects
I prefer to install the male halves closest to the filter body as it seems there is less water to escape when moving the filter to clean it.
