I think this was a brand new coffee maker used for this demo. My hoses will not budge. I would guess they soften up and permanently adhere to heating element over time. Also, from other videos, there is a ball in the hose (to control direction of water.) Not sure if you can replace with any old hose.

Oh yeah that really helped, why not tell us where you got the hose or what type it is?

Silicon Durometer 50 or 70 or is it something else, totally useless site, waste of time.
