Drip irrigation leaking

Hi,

I am getting my drip irrigation system (simple 2 zone) back up and running for the season and the system seems to be leaking in a place that is a new leak to me! It is leaking below the regulator and adaptor - where the system connects to the drip tube (not the distribution tube). I think I used the correct terms there . In the picture the leak is happening in between the silver fastener and the gold valve(?).

I can't seem to figure out what to do so any help would be much appreciated!

thanks!

If the silver fastener = the hose clamp & the gold valve = the threaded connector, I would think that you need to tighten the clamp.

You will need to re do the joint if tighting the clamp does not fix.

Try heating up the hose before installing, I use ay propane torch to warm up the pipe, slip on, then clamp while warm.
