I opened yesterday and noticed a small amount of water dripping down the return hose. After a close inspection, it appears that, when the pump is running, some water escapes out the top of the hose at the return connection. I've got the hose pushed up on the return inlet as far as it can go and tighted the clamp as much as possible. I've also tried loosening the clamp and moving it slightly to see if that helped but no luck.
Anything I am missing? Is it likely that the hose opening is just slightly out of round and should be replaced?
Also, is there a formal name for these hoses that run from pool to filter and back? When I do an internet search it always comes back with vacuum or backwash hoses. I would like to find 15 foot or so section if it exists since my filter is kind of far from my pool.
