I use a 2 1/2" piece of clear vaccumm tubing to attach the vaccumm tube on one end and a female faucet adapter on the other end. Then use a cheap garden hose, rather than pay the price they want for good strong tubing that won't collapse when the suction is applied. That way the whole thing cost under $25.
