The original hose connector on our pump lasted several years and had a snug fitting problem that I had to frequently glue or tape in order for the hose to stay connected. When replacing the pump for another one I saw the hose fitting connector advertised by Rule and bought 2 of them. Yes, they are plastic but what material could fit snugly on plastic and serve the same function? Even tho this fitting has to be replaced periodically, in 2 years since purchased, I have had no problem using this fitting on the Rule Swimming Pool Cover Pump It is a snug, easy to install and has effectively solved the problem of attaching 'pump to garden hose'. No leaks!
