This is a follow up after having these hoses fitted for nearly 18months. I have had to constantly tighten the hoses, they don't seem to seal properly. I now have to replace the top radiator hose as it has a pin hole in it now and is leaking coolant under pressure. :roll: For the price I would of thought they would of lasted a fair bit longer. My personal opinion is that these hoses are not worth the money.

yer silicone hoses can be a bit like that with fluids.
its a big problem in the mining game, on a cold start up everything leaks, then you tighten em up, then it all gets hot and the hoses split around the clamps cause they are too tight all of a sudden... gotta find that happy medium
