> Would duct tape be ok?
Well, Sue, I missed this until I saw the answers this morning. New
hoses are the best, but many of us have done what you did, and the
fix is easy. Cut the hoses, get about an inch of copper tubing that
fits the ID - if you mean what I think you mean, those clear plastic
hoses with the red and green fabric outside, that I believe is 1/4".
Put a bit of epoxy on the outside of the copper as a sealer, put the
tubing on it and twist some wire around each end to clamp it. Easy
and permanent. Bigger hoses, bigger tubing.
