I bought a fancy new water filter, the kind you need an additional hose piece for. All went well except that the connection between the water source hose and the filter will not stop leaking. I even got out my trusty pliers and tightened the connection, but no go. I re-seated the connection twice. Still drips. So, I figure I need some of that tape for the connection.
As Gilda Radner said, it's always something... of course, she was talking about cancer, so maybe I should stop whining.
Good luck on the shopping spree. On the hoses, maybe the thread has been damaged or there is a lousy washer in place.
