Re: Getting sanitation hose over fittings

Seaduction is right. You need fittings made for the marine sanitation hose and if you're trying to use standard hardware store barb fittings, they won't fit. Don't know why that is, but all the hot water and dish soap in the world will only get your hands slippery and the hose cleaner. I did the same job and ended up sanding the barbs down with coarse sandpaper. I had some limited success that way, but with the correct fittings, the hose slips on pretty easily.
Not that expensive and worth the money.
