    leaky hose

    I have a drip leak at my hose from my pump to my filter. No matter how tight I get it I still get a leak. No cracks or anything visibly wrong with hose or fitting. Any advice?

    A new clamp or double clamp it. That should take care of it.

    If that doesn't do it you can take off the hose, remove the fitting and wrap it with a few wraps of Teflon tape and put a little pipe dope on top of that and reassemble the whole thing. Sometimes it's difficult to tell if it's the fitting or the hose. On mine it had to quite tight to stop leaking and it feels very tight for a little plastic fitting.

    FYI At Lowes those 1 1/2 plastic hose adaptors are about $7-8 each in the plumbing dept and about $2-3 in the outdoor pool dept if you break one.
