Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Watermaker hoses
Bill, I am surprised the fittings aren't metric. I don't know why I thought it had to be food grade hose, it will be easy to find normal hydraulic hose locally.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

The original hose from Dessalator was normal hydraulic hose. I think that you are fine with it.
I used hydraulic hose with machine-crimped stainless steel fittings. Mine had 3/8" JIC Stainless Fittings with, I believe 3/8" high pressure hose. You can use easier-to-find larger hose with your 3/8" fittings. Think about buying some stainless steel JIC "elbow" fittings to make the install neater.
