Repair The systems modular components allow for the broken section to be replaced by loosening the surrounding fittings and replacing the broken fittings and tube. A professional welder must replace the affected section
Rust Kee Klamp and Kee Access system components are fully galvanised to resist corrosion. During onsite installation, the galvanised finish can be damaged and therefore allow the tube to rust.
