OK please bear with me.  I might not have time to reply tonight, but if I can I will.

I would fit a Jubilee clip on that connection.  Don't overtighten it.  Before you do that, while you have the hose detached, check the condition of the end of it, and if its not perfect cut 1" off the end of it so that the seal is good.
