Is the "screw connector" the port where the external water hose connects, i.e. the city water inlet itself? If you replaced that and you still have a leak, it would seem the leak is actually somewhere else. Could it be the water line itself, just short of where it attaches to the city inlet? A hairline crack in the water line will leak under pressure.

Obviously, you'll have to try again with another connector. It's like any plumbing, we're often cautious about over tightening and end up with a leak.

Once you get it repaired, buy a brass garden hose quick connect, sold in the garden department of your big box store. Screw the male end onto your water connection, using pliers to get it tight. Screw the female end onto your fresh water hose. Now when you connect your water, it's just a quick connect. The reason for doing this is to take the stress off of your water connection. The constant hose connecting and disconnecting ruins the connector your having issues with.

Yes I agree once I get this fixed I am going to do a quick connect and disconnect because thats what caused this leak Thanks BC
