Hi. I've been noticing my Hydor inline heater has been leaking very very slowly in the past day or two. I took off all the tubing and reconnected them. Turned the blue tightener as tight as possible and water still comes out. I'm positive I'm using the right tubing size as I've never had a problem in the past (I've had this thing for about 2 years now). Does anyone have any solutions to getting the connection tighter as the blue plastic tighteners don't seem to hold very well.

Also, are these heaters water proof on the outside because I got water on the heater dial.

have you tried cutting off a bit of the tubing to put "fresh" tubing on the connections? i had to do that once when i ended up stretching the tubing to get it on my just a little to much

The heaters are not waterproofed on the outside. You could try cheap hose clamps to tighten it down. Just dont over tighten or you will crack the Hydor's fitting.
