What happened to Quick Horn Rinse?

Postby Kleintuba » Wed Jun 20, 2018 5:32 pm

I thought I'd buy one of these, turn over a new leaf, become fastidious in my old age, but every listing on the web says "Out of stock." Wha' hoppen? Did they stop making them? Anyone know anything?

There was a post on Facebook a short time ago that the founder and owner of the company had passed away after a battle with cancer. It also said that his family was trying to figure out how to keep the business going in some way or another. That's about all that was mentioned. Hope this helps, thoughts are with his family.

No clue what happened to the company.

The product seems pretty simple though.

One of these nozzles (or something similar) and some clear hose with a rubber tip and you should be good to go.

What about the tapered hose that goes in the lead pipe? Where can I get that?

Could a sousaphone tuning bit be sawn off (or unsoldered into it's components...whatever), and a cylindrical hose attached to it via the smallest size hose clamp?

Yes. This is what I have done (or close enough) for years.

Out in the shop is an old savaged porcelain bath tub (elevated up to "comfortable working height" on a 2x4's stand that I built) and with a "janitor style" (hose threads) faucet. I use a washing machine connection hose (high-pressure rubber) a male-to-male adapter, and a brass (garden) hose nozzle, and just jet hot/warm/etc. (depending on how I mix it with the H/C handles) water down the mouthpipe and out the main slide. There is treated plywood on three size (and silicone caulk) to discourage splashing...oh, and it's "digital"... :|
