    have you checked the fitting is crimped tight, and not just left on hose ready to tighten.
    if you phone them or email them he will send you a couple of o rings to fit on. you dont need special crimpers, you can use plyers or cutter to tighten the sides up onto pole hose.

    That what happens when they use single crip rings as obviouly it's not sealed onto the barb properly. You will need to crimp it some more to stop the water getting past it. Either that just cut it off/spread it apart and as suggested and put a jubilee clip on it instead.
