Instead of throwing away the whole thing or buying an expensive replacement hose, you can replace the hose with a cheap tube found in any hardware sotre.
Step 1: Materials needed
- your hydration system
- utility knife
- replacement hose - vinyl tubing
- optional: any replacement part for your system
The replacement part will help you buy the tubing at your local hardware store. You be able to try different inner diameters. I tried many at the store and chose the tubing that was big enough to let the piece in but not out (that was 5/16 of an inche in my case - I have the Source system available at MEC). I recommend this approach if you don't want the new hose to leak. The tubing is typically found in the plumbing departement.
If you do not have any replacement part, you can go buy the tubing after the next step.
Step 2: Remove the old hose
Step 3: Put new hose
