comment Can I caulk a hose connection for a pool vacuum pump?
Thank you. Since I can't post images, this is difficult to explain. Caulking and rubber stretch & seal tape did no good at all. The connection involves a tapered plastic piece that the hose fits over. Attached correctly, it looks like a good 2-3 inches of the plastic would be inside the hose. The issue seems to be that I cannot get the hose as far down onto that piece as it ought to go. I don't know of a method that wouldn't risk breaking the pump below. I may just have to call in a professional for this one which is irritating - quite an expensive mistake on my part.

Sure enough, the caulking made a very minor difference - the water pressure carved a few pinholes through it in no time.
