Default tubing blowing off pump

There must be something I'm missing on my pump--the hose keeps blowing off
the place where it's attached to the pump from the force of the water--is
there something I can buy to make the fit tighter?

A hose clamp, like they sell at auto parts store.

If you could get one all stainless, that would be best.

Kirsten, you need to get a hose clamp: a circular metal band that
narrows and widens when you turn a screw attached to it. Stainless steel
is better for ponds. You need to know your hose size and the diameter of
the pump part where you attach the hose. In the meantime, use a piece of
wire. Wrap around hose once and twist tightly, like using a twist tie on
a plastic bag (loaf of bread, etc.)

Thanks, all! I was also told that the hose should be going OVER the
outtake part of the filter, and I was fitting it inside...

Might I suggest a double wrap and pull and twist the wire to tighten.

Regards,

Hal
