aqueon water changer hose burst!!

My hose on my aqueon water changer burst!! I couldn't believe it... Pressure must have built up, I finished filling the tank, shut the valve off at the filler end set it down and spent maybe 1 minute wiping the glass off when woooooooosh.. the hose burst... Luckily it was right by the adapter and it didn't make too bad of a mess... This unit is only one week old.I think either there was a defect or you can't turn the valve off and wait. The instructions said nothing about the possibility of this so I am assuming it was a defect.. luckily I still have the receipt.. anybody else ever seen this?
