Hi Folks. I have developed a leak which has to be where the black (yes, black, maybe 1/2" circa 1981) pipe from the fresh tank attaches to the fill valve. It leaked a little for a while when I filled the tank, but now it continues to leak AFTER I have filled the tank and it doesn't stop leaking until the tank is down to about 3/4 full. It's a 100 gallon tank so I am losing about 25 gallons every time I fill up.
The pipe is clamped onto the valve with a steel or aluminum band which appears to be crimped in 2 places 180 degrees apart.
I don't have that kind of a clamp, or a crimper. Do you think cutting off the end of the pipe, along with the clamp, putting the pipe back on and using a plain old screw-tightened hose clamp would work?
It has stopped leaking now, but in a week or 2 I'll need to fill up again.
