Even if it's clean inside, yellowing makes it look sketch. So what to do? You can replace the hose with the special one that osprey sells. Or you can get a whole new bladder... Or! You can replace it with the same type hose that the manufacturer uses!

Step 2: Okay Get Some Vinyl Tubing

Get the stuff without led. If you were being extra careful you'd get the stuff that says "drinking water safe" or "food grade"

This is the tubing I used for my bladder. Note the dimensions. This is the same dimension as the original
