thanks i didn't realize that you could click the picture for more details. and yeah, i wasn't planning on using it the way you're supposed to, but i didn't realize that lol. so, looking at the image on the right in this link...
...i would be slipping the clear tubing up into area B? the problem with that is, my outside diameter of the tubing is 5/8". when i said i had 1/2" tubing, i was referring to the interior. that's not good because it looks like they don't sell the size i need then. i need that size hose too, because that's what's needed for my pump.
not sure what to do, hopefully i'm reading it correctly this time. maybe i'll have to search somewhere else.
