I am trying to fix tap that has a leaky hose that leaks where 3/8 nut is. It leaks only when I move the nut. Presumably because I over-tightened it last time.
I went to Lowe's and Home Depot and they did not have a replacement hose because of the unconventional 1/8 brass pipe fitting end that goes into tap.
The questions I have:
- Is it possible to repair such hoses by replacing just the rubber seal on the 3/8 compression fitting end? If yes, what part do I need to fix it?
- Any other tricks to try so that I could avoid to replace the tap?
- Home depot plumber told me it is 1/8 brass pipe fitting, but is it really true? On amazon I found visually similar hose where other end was called M10 connector. So which one of these two is it?
Update#1: Here is close up. It leaks just behind the nut where arrow points. Leak gets worse if I wiggle the hose.
