I recently bought a brand new hose and screwed it as tightly as I could (by hand) to the spigot (I've never actually used this spigot before and it's pretty old). When I turned the water on, some came out of the other end of the hose, but a significant amount was spraying out of the top of the hose. In looking closely at it, the water was coming out of a gap between the 'collar' of the hose, and the hose itself. In looking at it, it seems like there's a gasket in the end of the hose, and perhaps I wasn't tightening the hose enough to create a seal between the end of the spigot and the gasket in the hose. Is there a solution for this? Get a wrench and tighten even more? Get another gasket and put a second one into the hose?
Thanks in advance!
