    pump hoses leaking

    Hello all,
    Just set up my new 10 ft dia. Blow up ring pool by Prompt Set. The hose clamps that came with it were plastic wing type screws, every connection leaked. I replaced with metal hose clamps and they all still leak. The in and out tubes on the pump do have o rings. The other two coming out of the pool do not. Does anyone have a trick for fixing this? Thanks

    You can increase the outside diameter of the fittings, by wrapping them with Teflon tape, or electrical tape. This will tighten up the connections some if you can't otherwise get them to seal. Kind of a Jerry Rig, but it can work. Someone else may have a better suggestion, but I've done this with good results.
