I just replaced the male & female ends of a 3/4" hose with new brass fittings. The hose clamps screwed down tight, but both ends leak a bit from the hose/barb connection while in use. Will plumbers putty fix it up?
use Teflon tape instead, or even electrical tape to build up the diameter of the barbed ends
take it apart and put a little pipe dope on the barbs before you put it togather. or vaseline
I already tried Teflon tape and it did the job on both ends. Thank you,
