I bought one but haven't installed it yet. It's been a few years so there's a possibility I'll never get around to it.

Some Other mfgs. may have copied them as I have seen some that did not have the Oetiker stamp but look for Oetiker.
Look them up. There are single ear and double ear clamps, plated steel AND SS
They must be set with a pincer type plier. The same plier can be used to cut them off.
I stopped using the single ear type years ago for the reason you are finding, leaks. I use only the double ear type now except for very tiny hoses, under 1/4" od

The clamps and pliers are cheap enough. They do require the proper sizing to the hose/tube or they will be too tight or loose.
They are good clamps and properly chosen and set will hold reliably in applications like this.

Part of the problem could be the nylon ftgs. If they are a light wall they may not like the clamp pressure especially those used in the hot water circuit, softening and collapsing with the heat and pressure.

Get the double ear type.

This should be warranty work.
Got a look today. C Lectric is correct as these are made by Oetiker. The hoses have "TRESSMARINE AL" printed on them
