    Take the hose and those 2 washers down to your local plumbing supplies and get 2 new washers - cost = the trip and about 20p

    Get a new hose (which should come with washers) - cost = a bit more.

    :)

    The washers don't look broken. Could one or both be the wrong size?
    I'm putting the washers in together at the end of the hose then screwing it on.

    One washer each end , looks like you fitted wrong way round , the long end goes on the shower head.

    I'd tried it this way earlier and for some reason it hadn't worked. I just tried it again and it worked perfectly, no more leak.

    Thank you.
