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.

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.

They had food grade hose in stock. Impossible to leak.

I have tried to find a source locally for food grade hose clad in the stainless steel cover , but have not been able to find it. Is there someplace I could order/purchase this hose ? The fitting has a bad leak .
