Teflon tape is not effective for most hand-shower hoses. Flat washers of some sort usually work. If you can't find the missing ones in the back of the car , take the hose to a hardware store and they can probably sell you a couple of washers which will work.

There is a black washer fixed to each end of the hose. It feels as if that is not enough. When I tighten the chrome threaded end the hose still has some play in it. On the old hose the threaded ends pull in tight and the single washer does it's job. On the new one it doesn't pull in tight when I thread it tight. I'm gonna try a double washer to see if that will seal things up.

No Tape, doesn't work and just looks bad. There should be some washers if not head over to a hardware store and get a couple (1 for each end).
By the way, next time we head for Morro Dunes I'll try to give you a message. (we take our Newell MH)

OK, Job done. I don't know why but there were 2 loose washers included in the packaging. They are the same size as the washers attached to each end of the flex-hose. I had dropped one so when I installed this I only had one and thought that it was just a misc. washer with no purpose. When I found the 2nd one the Ahhhh light went on. I put one of these washers ( making each end a double washer) at the end and things tightened down nicely and are leak tight. I'm not sure that this was the intention since the instructions do not address this but it worked for me. In the meantime I ordered the piece to put the old shower head back into service if needed.
