[SOLVED] Bottom Radiator pipe problem

Hey guys just a quick question.
A while back I had a problem with lower coolant pipe and it went to mechanic he had it fixed and now it's been couple of months and i had a problem with it again but this time i attempted to fix it myself.

I found that the bottom pipe had come off the radiator slightly so i pushed it back on all the way.

How it looked when it was leaking.


How it looked after i pushed it back on.


The thing i want to know is what could be causing this as it's now happened​ two times.

I would guess the hose has stretched slightly, it should be a pretty snug fit, so they've put 2 clamps on to try and stop it. I'd replace the clamps with new and see how you get on.

Is there a pipe join in place? If there's a bit of tube in there that would explain the two pipe clips...
