For anyone who owns a swimming pool at home, we’ve all experienced it one time or another. A leaking swimming pool hose can be frustrating since the pool is losing water. Now, understanding that every situation is different, but what worked for us may or may not be helpful for others. I just thought to provide a quick solution that can fix a pool hose leak with a few tips.

To resolve, we tried a few things before coming to our resolution. However, you can try these which could help your situation.

Having spent a few minutes trying to resolve the leaking, it came down to tightening the metal hose clamp much more. That stopped the leaking right away.
Obviously, you’ll need to make sure you have the washers and all the appropriate pieces in place. If there are any damaged pieces, you should be able to get replacement parts from the manufacturer or online.
Our last option was to buy some sort of selant that was waterproof and safe. We were luckily that we didn’t have to take that route.
