This is my second hose, I am using a vaccum hose that comes from my solar panel to return the warm water to the pool. It has a small steady leak, but when I went to use the Polaris pool cleaner today it came shooting out. I need about 25 foot hose and that is why I am using the vaccum hose which my pool place suggested. It is coming out around where the hose fits into the attachement, not at the pool itself. Is there an adapter I might use, hey I got desperate and put plumbing putty around it but I doubt if that is a permanent solution. as you can tell I am new at this and do not know the terminolgy of connections, so I hope this makes sense.
