yes, simple, I thought leak was at the pump, but water was running down from the pump hose from above where where it connects to the tub bottom. its the tub to pump hose.
Tightening the factory band clamp seems to have stopped the leak at the tub bottom.
Should I replace the hose? machine is a 1994 model, medium use (couple, no kids)
if I do replace it do you put any type "dope" or sealant on the tub nipple?
