Water pipes

I have begun replacing my hot water heater and I need to hook up the water lines. regulator in a different way. How do you remove the crimped on clamps at the connections. I tried using channel locks to try and work them apart, but to no avail. Is there a special tool that removes these clamps?

I would appreciate any help that you all can give a frustrated newbie?

Regards,

Reganzo

Reganzo, The crimp connections should be cut out and replace the entire fitting. I would recommend the shark bite fittings or a similar brand. They will work on Polly pipe, Pex, cpvc and copper! They allow for rotation after they are pushed together and they can be taken apart and put back. Be sure and camphor or bevel the ends so the "o" rings are not damaged. Phil

I bought one of those in-line pressure regulators, but stopped using it when I read that my unit has a regulator built in. When I had both in the water line, the pressure inside the trailer was so low it took minutes to fill the coffee pot, and we had to use the pump to supplement the pressure (my pump's manual says you can do that). Without the extra outside regulator, we have good flow and no issues.

Nothing work 100% of the time. If your onboard regulator fails then hope your lines hold should campground pressure be high.

During restoration I had my full city pressure go to the trailer (due the faulty regulator) The copper plumbing with few hoses holds 150 psi just fine, but I didn't let it to be for long.
Not bad for 43 years old plumbing.
Even original water pump works after forced priming. It drips a bit, but I already ordered new check valves. The new replacement retails at $450.
If I can keep it running for $ 60 it might be worth it.
