DIY Python


If you go to www.melnor.com and check hose repair section you can see the parts I got:
2X 1FMC Female Repair
1x 1MMC Male Repair
1X 390S Hose Shut-Off
25ft 5/8 clear vynil hose

I also got the waterbed fill/drainer kit

All this for $30Cad altogether.

I have a little problem though.

I would like to be able to use my gravel cleaner but the hose is 1/4 diameter and I would like to get the same thing as the 1FMC female connector but for a 1/4' or at least get some kind of hose "convertor" from a 5/8 to 1/4.

Thats all I need to have a complete syphon system, otherwise I can just use it to drain and fill the tank.

The 1/4 hose will fit tight inside the connector, I thought maybe I could use some good bonding glue to keep it tight and secure.

Would PVC cement work or what would you sugest to fix this?

As far as I know, nothing will glue vinyl.

Power Poxy makes some stuff that claims that it will bond vinyl.
