My spray bar in my Aqua One Ecostyle 61 leaks out the first joint, how can I stop this? I have tried swapping the joints around but it seems to make little difference.

Quick fix, electrical tape. Permanent fix either silicone or superglue.

Item must be clean and dry to permanently fix.

Didn't really want to do anything that might void the warranty but looks like I might have to. Thank you for the help(:

Ahh yes, I didn't consider it new. If it's defective, return it, especially if it's new!
