So I picked up an fx5 last week and the hoses have been cut to short to reach my tank but I don't really want to pay $50 a hose for the genuine ones has anyone else on here used anything else to make it work? Let me know

I have bought and used a wide range of clear, and some braided, hose from Bunnings. 8,10,12,18,19,25,32mm. Cheap in comparison, good quality too. Just need to think through how to connect them. Glue, tape, and heat all have worked for me for different uses and sizes.

Ok, i just looked at the FX5 online, clear hose will do the trick just measure the diameter of the hose and get what you need and use the existing hose clamps you could even smear some vasoline on the connectors.
