Coolant leaks please help

I get a new coolant leak about every month, i have a new radiator and a rebuilt water pump(i guess i doubt they put a new one in). everytime i turn around tho i have another hole in a hose and its really starting to get annoying. Today i walked out side after goign in for a few minutes and there was a 3/4's inch long hole in the top main hose spewing out the green stuff. anybody have this problem or know what i can do about it.

get new hoses before it leaves you stranded on the trail, they must have used cheap crap. goodyear makes some EXCELLENT hose. try napa, kragen and the like will not have it

If all your hoses are new (even if the are cheap) you should not be blowing them, sounds like a pressure problem. Dumb question when they replaced the radiator, did they put a new cap on (ie pressure relief and is so was it the proper rating?)

Another thing to check. If you are getting leaks close to the clamps you may be tightening the clamps too tight and cutting into the hose.
