    Hose Clamps

    What are the best type of hose clamps to use? I currently have std. hose clamps 2-3 per hose and still have had some blow off I cannot trust it right now to leave my pump running while away from home. Any suggestion what to buy and where to get. Thanks

    I use the regular worm gear hose clamps, and have never had one blow off (knock on wood).

    I have had numerous blowoffs over the years. mainly from using the smooth type fittings where ther hose pushes on, along with the plastic cheapy hose. I now use the spiral type hose, it has a rubber interior & have all pressure fittings changed to the barb type. No more blow offs for me!!
