did you take any tygon off of it that came from the factory or whereevere, the native black barbs that come out of the pump are made to fit 1/2" tubing, it its tygon or similer it should stretech , if its a harder type tubing or you want to stretch it out more heat the tubing up either in some really hot water or use a heat gun (careful)<br><br>
while its still hot slip it on there

</div>For the future just put a mug of water in the microwave for 2mins and let the end sit in it for 10-30 seconds then slip it right over.

First heat up the tubing carefully with a hair dryer, then lube the tube & pump fitting with alcohol. Slide on accordingly. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

I said to do that 8 months ago and had people yelling at me for it! lol <img src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" border="0" alt="" title="EEK!" class="inlineimg" /> but it works. if you use distilled/filtered water just make sure you don't leave it in too long. My general rule of thumb is to put the mug of water in the microwave for about as long as you would put a mug of water in there for tea or hot chocolate.

</div>Really? That's funny. Well I listened to whoever it was that told me to do it when I setup my first system and it worked out very well.
