Are you connecting it to a regular pvc fitting or are you using a hose barb? A picture or two would help to properly understand your problem.

Cheers!

im hooking the pool hose to a threaded pvc fitting and i just looked more closely and im just gonna have to use regular clear tubing of the same diameter. the clamps just cut through the tubing i have i believe its just cheaply made tubing very thin. thanks josh
