Hi all, still new to this pool thing (2nd post). See below pictures. The pump in the picture is my aux pump that runs a Polaris Vacuum cleaner. I'm wondering what I should do about this hose/pump connection as it was developing a slow leak and after moving the pump around a bit yesterday as I was cleaning up the concrete pad the connection loosened more so that when I turned the primary pump on (not the aux pump) the pressure from the water completely pushed the connection apart and water was spraying everywhere.
I turned the main pump off and pushed the hose back onto the connection. I pressed it pretty hard (hard enough that when I took it back off to take these pictures it took a good 20 seconds of carefully twisting/pulling it up to get it to break off the pump connection.
My question is if it really does just attach by pushing it on with brute force? Or is there some piece that is broken or a seal missing? Anything else to consider?
