How to stop co2 leaking between tube and diffuser

I just bought an aquario diffiser.

Despite all efforts it continues to leak between where the hose meets the diffuser.

I have tried pushing the tubing as far down as possible over the nipple of the diffuser... does nothing.

In all their pics and videos the tubing is roughly .5cm over the inlet of the diffuser.

I even tried gluing around the perimeter of where the tube meets the diffuser and co2 is still escaping...

Does anyone know why this is happening.

It has nothing to do with working pressure. It leaks out regardless of the pressure.

Also, the tubing is very tight. I have to soak in hot water just to get onto the diffuser... still co2 leaks out.

So frustrating.
