    Are the nozzles slide valves (automatic types) or good ole ball valves? This may be a help to knowing a solution of "the drip".

    There are several things that can be happening. If it is a poly ball it could be scored, if you have a slide the seat could be having an burr or obstruction.There could be deterioration if you run foam too.

    Personally, I've never had any issues with our Akron 1441. Also this is my preferrence.

    Hope it helped

    They are not supposed to leak a drop. Don't take much to score the ball valve inside.

    However, during cold weather, we crack the nozzle just a bit so the line doesn't freeze.

    check your balls

    Take a look at the ball valves and seats in the nozzels. All you need is some rust to score them and its going to leak.

    started a topic leaky nozzles??

    leaky nozzles??

    Last week during traning I commented that a charged line always drips water from the nozzle. No one knew the reason. All are nozzels are fog nozzels and are several years old.
    Are they designed to leak to bleed off any pressure build up in the lines? or do they leak from getting old and warn out.
