I am firing up the water maker and the small hose after the membranes has a pinhole leak. It's not the real high pressure hose, but I have tried repairing with a hose bandage and rescue tape, but it's high enough pressure to start up. .

Re: Repairing water hose on watermaker

Not sure where you are at, but if you can find a hardware store store that sells plumbing parts they should have 1/4" tubing used for refrigerator ice/water machines. It usually comes in 25' lengths. You could replace the entire run and re-use both fittings or they should have John Guest fittings John Guest 1/4" White Polypropylene (OD) Straight Union Connector . You could just cut your blue tube right at the pin hole and use the fitting to splice it back together.
