Noticed you din't show how to get that boot back on. I would rather wrastle a wild monkeys asz than fiddle with that. Worst design I ever seen.

I couldn't show it on account of all the adult language spewing forth during re-assembly and I try to keep at least an R-rating on my videos.   :blinky:

Having dealt with the same frustration of re-installing the boot to the pump enough times myself, I replace the green spring-type clamp with an adjustable hose clamp that you can tighten with a nut driver.

That's what we do as well.... to honor the moment, we ceremoniously throw the spring clamp away as far as possible.

Years ago, I was in a training class-- forget which manufacturer, doesn't matter-- and someone asked why they used those damn GITMO spring clamps instead of screw clamps.  We all guessed it was to save $0.3 per unit in production costs.  The instructor said they deliberately did not use screw clamps because they have a nasty habit of rusting and breaking, producing a flood next time the washer pumps out.  We all looked at each other with that look, "Oh.  I never thought of that."  So I bought a pair of spring clamp pliers and have not replaced a spring clamp with a screw clamp since.   It's still a beeotch but now it's one you can do with merely R-rated language.
