|This is our problem...|
We finally were able to get the fitting off the hoses and found our culprit. I can't believe any water at all was able to get through this fitting.
|I think he's going to kill me for snapping pics instead of helping|
Next, we reconnect it all. Bruce crawled into the hole and connected all three hoses with clamps to the new fitting. The new fitting had us running one hose from the opposite direction from which it originally came. Luck again would have it that there was enough hose there to allow a gentle curve and it went right on.
|Tight space with limited line of sight.|
The last thing we needed to do was to secure the hoses to the fitting with clamps. This took Bruce coming from one side with his left hand to hold and position the piece, and myself coming at it from the other side with my right hand and the ratchet to tighten the nuts. Not an easy task when you can only see what you're doing with one eye at a time!
