Simply Build It

THis generally means the connections are not square to the fittings thay are comning out of or going into. The fact that its leaking at both ends seems to verify this. If a length of pipe is intalled at even a slight angle to the fittings the rubber "skirt" will not make a complete seal around the pipe.
