    Has anyone had a problem with the pump developing a severe leak from the under side of the block where the hoses attach on top the pump.

    Mine started leaking so bad it was streaming out under pressure. Empty resovire in 15 mins. I have a scoop with the plastic lid.

    The block is not loose. What might cause it to leak there?

    Mine did that right after I got it. I split the pump in half by removing the allen screws holding it together and it had a bad o-ring in it. Hopefully that's all it is. Mine wouldn't stay up it was leaking so bad.

    There are o rings under that block. Make sure they are OK when you tighten the bolts.
