Didn't want to spend $30 for Sea Doo's kit plus lotsa bucks to install it due to having the iBR in place and wanted a way to hold the floppy 1/2" ID hose to slide it onto the fitting. Came up with plastic PEX tubing from the hardware. Used Teflon lube inside the PEX to make it slide easier and this allows me to push the hose onto the fitting very easily and I then slide the PEX down over the fitting to FIRMLY hold it onto the fitting. A lil Teflon lube inside the hose helps it slide onto the fitting easily. Tip: leave 2" of the hose out at the end as its not a perfectly straight shot to the fitting and that lil curve in the tube makes it easier to hit the fitting. Combined that with a female garden hose fitting and an on/off valve and it works just fine. EZ to use.
