Leaking Ion! Oh No!

Hey, my Ion is leaking, agian, from the rear fitting or hose. It stops when I lift the hoses and fittings out of the frame, but starts again when I put it back in. I notice it does then when the hose and fitting are pushed together.

What do I do?

Sounds like you need to trim just a tiny bit off the rear hose, and I do mean a TINY bit, like a millimeter. If it still does the same thing, take a bit more. If my advice causes you to cut it too short PM me.

I have had the exact same problem, I ended up having a TINY little break in the hose, if what spug said to do doesn't work, try replacing the hose altogether.

grab it with a pair of needle noses and then TWIST and pull the barbs are designed to be resistent to just pulling.
