V-Lube valve saver tank

#1 Post by Bad-Alias » Sat Dec 29, 2018 3:31 pm

Hi all,

my V-Lube valve saver tank leaks all the time from the screw on cap and between the black lid and clear plastic body.

I do not overfill the bottle, so i'm not sure what causes it, or if it happens to other people. Mine is around 1.5 years old.

Mine has a clear hard plastic tube rather than the rubber tube that I see on the online shop pictures.

Is there a direct replacement with the clear feed tube please.

Thanks

Why would changing the tube prevent spilling?
'Rubber' tubes for other lube systems are a poor fit on the Vlube bottles and seem to eventually break up, the Vlube clear plastic tubes are usually more durable.

Hi Simon, I would like to change the bottle, but for the same one with the clear tube.

what I meant was that the v-lube ones that i see for sale online, show in the picture with it supplied with a rubber tube and not the clear like i have fitted

Hi,
The suppliers picture is wrong, if you were to buy that item from the supplier it would arrive with a clear plastic tube which is superior to a rubber tube.
