Re: trouble with hoses
Without seeing the connections, it's hard to say.
1 - Cheap hoses tend to leak around the connections, even with washers.
2 - Washer could be damaged or distorted - replace with new.
3 - Leak may not be coming from the hose at all, but the faucet itself, usually around the stem nut - tighten stem nut slightly until leak stops.
4 - Connection could be cross-threaded - remove and install properly
5 - Hoses are damaged - replace hoses.
