In a world of leaks

For the time being we have a small leak at the main cylinder of the hydraul steering system. Having tightened the connection as much as possible the small remaining leak is treated with a rag.
It´s allways a bit "wet" around some of the connections for the domestic watersystem and recently we had a highpressure leak from the hose going to the expansion cylinder of the domestic waterssystem. With such a high pressure, allthough a small hole the engineroom was sprayed with freshwater. After a temporary repair new holes developed in the hose (PEX hose) and it has now been replaced with armed pvc hose and new brass fittings.
I guess having such complicated fuel,domestic water and saltwater systems with loads of fittings/connections there´s a high risk of allways living with some ongoing leak...........
