Can anyone recommend something to put under a hose clip to stop it biting into the rubber hose?
That stubby hose on the thermostat (v6) is just plain worn out I think..when I changed the stat' it felt loose to fit and it has been weeping ever since..
Anyway, I've tightened the hose clip up so much to try and sort it, that it's bitten into the hose. Well.. I was going to get a new hose anyway.. and that may allow me use less force on the hose clip.. but is there a magic product that sits under the hose clip? I was going to use a piece of electrical tape etc.
And has anyone found a fool-proof way to stop hose clips unscrewing themselves? No matter how much I tighten them up (see above) there's always one or two that are "loose" (but not leaking) when I check them.
No bullets for Chaingun..
