"fix" For Aqueon Filler Hose.

    I love my 50' Aqueon siphon/filler hose, except for the sink connection. Others on YouTube have expressed the same sentiments. When I threaded the plastic connector to the faucet, the slightest sideways movement would cause it to pop off. Fortunately, this never happened during actual use, just the initial and difficult threading.
    The simple fix was to NOT use the supplied rubber washer. It's still tricky to thread the connector, but I can get an extra bit of depth to thread it on. The leakage is almost non-existent and goes right down the sink anyway.

    Will do, thank you. I don't think the plastic connector will last long.
