Pool leaking where hose connects on the outside

Hi all, I have a slight leak coming from where the hose connects to the pool. I've taken a video of it here:

Any help or advice on fixing this would be greatly appreciated. If it requires draining the pool down to the level of this connection then I would rather just let it sit all summer until we take it down as something this small I assume would take a long time before I would notice a significant drop in the water level.

Look slike to me that the screw tightening cap is backwards. I could be wrong but I think the flat flange portion should sit flush up against the liner? Flip it around and see if that solves things. Good luck

I agree that the cap is backwards. The flat part should go against the pool, while those flange lips are to use to tighten up the cap with your fingers easier.

I am glad that was the issue. With how those fittings work they require large surface area to squeeze the gaskets to correctly seal the fitting.
