Leaking from the connection between hoses or adaptors

If you notice leaking when connecting different adaptors, like the red or blue adaptors on the HOTTAP, to the shower handle, to the Joolca pump, etc., make sure to fully press the hose onto the adaptor, to ensure a full seal.

  1. Hold the hose in one hand.
  2. Hold the adaptor, pump, etc. in the other hand. 
  3. Press the hose connection until it is seated securely.
