Hose Tester locates vacuum leaks

Oomph! Labs says techs can locate vacuum or pressure leaks with the new Hose Tester system, which tests the integrity of engine connections without the need for compressed air or electricity.

The Hose Tester system is designed to work with Hose Candy Sidewinders - a quick-coupler system designed to transform the look, performance and efficiency of vacuum and turbo hoses of any vehicle. It comes with modular connectors and adapters to work with fuel pressure/vacuum gauges.

To use, simply quick tee your gauge in place, then couple to the vacuum or pressure hose that needs tested. Install the quick plugs and pressurize the hose to determine if there is a leak.

"The modular Sidewinder fittings in our Hose Tester provide a system for isolating and testing different sections of your vacuum or turbo system, eliminating the time-consuming task of plugging off a vacuum line," said Jon Petty, CEO and founder of Oomph! Labs. "Hose Candy makes it simple by providing everything needed to test hose systems from 3/32-inch to ½-inch."
