Shaft Log Leak

Depending on the type of shaft log that you are supposed have an occasional drip at the shaft. This is what lubes the packing. With the slope of the shaft this water can drip aft and wet the hose. You need to figure out if this is a normal leak or something more serious by watching the shaft while it is turning.
