    New microbore hose and new fittings with an o clip and it still leaks. And I mean leaks. I am on 75psi on my shurflo. It doesn't leak elsewhere. Even on the 9£ tap.

    It leaks when pressure builds up. Pump won't shut off as obv it's leaking.

    Any tips? I have done it correctly.

    I am thinking jubilee clip now?

    get a small piece of garden hose put it around the microbore then use a jubilee clip.
    the garden hose makes it thicker for the clip and spreads the pressure around the hose with damaging the microbore

    Looked like a bloody sprinkler today.

    But I do like running off a hose on bigger houses.
