I've got a hose/flexible pipe that is seems to have some kind of hole in it. I can't easily get to it, so I can't see it up close - but there is a fairly steady drip (1 drip ever couple of seconds). It's above the clamp on the hose holding it to a "T" connector. Not that it matters, but this is directly off of the back of the hot water heater bypass. Also, this worked fine for 7 months and even days before I noticed the drip - it was like it didn't drip until we got it home and were using it here at the house (running off of the FW tank and water pump).
In the picture, the red circle shows the general area. The brown arrow shows the ballpark of where the drip is appearing. I've tried feeling around for water above this, but haven't felt anything - so I think it's about here.
Fortunately, it's only about 6"-8" of hose. I'm thinking I can snip the clamps with wire cutters, get a replacement hose and then standard camps from a big box store.
Can you tell me what I need for the replacement hose? I can see that I need 1/2" inner diameter that's good for a higher PSI than my system will ever see. Do I need anything special because this is on the hot water side of the system?
