Hi, I wonder if any one can help. Last week I discovered a pool of water under my kitchen sink, which was due to a dripping dishwasher hose. I have an inlet hose running from the pipe to the dishwasher hose, via a plastic connecter ( see image here) https://www.flickr.com/photos/ethanrosen/15596058421/
The drip seems to be coming from where the inlet hose meets to the connector, so I bought a new inlet hose, but that does not seem to have done the trick, and the drip ( whilst very slight) is still occuring. I have tried using PTFE tape but this has still not cured it.
SO I thought maybe I needed a new plastic connector but can't seem to find it sold anywhere.( perhaps it is an old design - the kitchen is 20 years old)) I am sure it is a standard bit of kit, so can someone advise what I should be looking for?
