Boil Kettle


STEP 3: Add a quick disconnect to the ball valve

We need to be able to attach hoses to the kettle output so a quick disconnect is attached to the existing ball valve.

Wrap the threaded end with PTFE white teflon thread sealant tape to ensure a tight, leak-free fit. Tighten using wrenches until the quick disconnect is firmly attached to the ball valve. Two wrenches are required: One to hold the ball valve steady to avoid it turning, the other to tighten the quick disconnect we're attaching.
