leak at water pump

OK…not being so good at this stuff I made what looked easy complicated. When I de-winterized and watered up the system in my 2006 Safari I noticed a small leak where water hose enters pump (Remco 55). there was a drip where the hose meets a plastic piece that extends out of the pump. The hose was attached with a factory crimp clamp. In attempting to get the clamp off I managed to snap the plastic piece in half…half still in the pump. The plastic looks and feels like it might screw or snap out of the pump screw out and can easily be replaced. Can it? will it? How?

Thanks in advance if you are familiar with this and can give me some advice.

A photo would help.

Typically there's a plastic or metal fitting that screws onto the threads on the black piece that comes out from the pump. That's probably what broke. Unscrew it, replace it with new, done. Typically you can get the hose assembly with the ends already crimped in place in the sink and faucet section of a building supply place.

here you go…..snapped "port." How do I get this thing out of the pump?? I could sit here and twist it counter-clockwise for the rest of my life!

I believe the fitting screws into the pump, but not 100% sure. Can't see for sure in the picture. But even if it does, there may not be enough left of the fitting to get hold of it with a wrench. If not, you might try inserting a screw driver inside of it and see if you can get it out, or if you have an Easyout large enough, that might work. Good luck.

Sorry. I have no idea. Maybe the pump manufacturer has good customer service??

Sorry, I missed your post earlier.

You have a Remco Aquajet pump which uses quick disconnect or "quad port" fittings. Replacement fittings are available from many sources including amazon.com. Installation instructions for your pump are here: http://www.freshwatersystems.com/pro...manual2012.pdf

I believe that there is a slide release near the fitting. You would slide it toward the rear of the pump and then turn and pull on the fitting until it comes off.

The Remco part number for the fitting and hose assembly is 25-174. Available here, though the photo shows a worm drive clamp rather than a crimp: http://www.rvupgradestore.com/Aquaje...r-p/25-174.htm
