Note that "check" means REALLY test.  Not just look over.  Pinch the hoses,
feel underneath for soft spots.  Take hoses off and inspect them
thoroughly.  Or figure out a way to gently pressurize the system  like
here:  http://www.blackfoot.net/~hlm5860/Tester.html    Be careful because
you only need a few pounds of air pressure.  Then listen for leaks.
