I was playing around with my python ( blue magic is the same) and was getting a lot of play between the faucet screw and main stem. Apparently they are two separate pieces so I unscrewed it and wrapped Teflon tape on it. Now I now longer have at we spraying out from that area.
Not sure if it helps anyone else but figured I would share.
I also added a quick connect to my utility sink and the filler/drainer to make it easier and prevent future movement.
