Use a pair of pliers to loosen the hose pinch by turning it counterclockwise a couple of turns.
Continue to loosen the hose pinch by hand until it comes free from its threads.
Slide the hose pinch down the tube so that it does not interfere with removing the hose.
Using a hobby knife, carefully slice a slit in the bottom of the hose to allow it to slide off.
Be careful and go slowly so as not to damage the nipple underneath.
Use a metal prying tool or flathead screwdriver to pry the hose up off of the nipple.
Remove the hose from the pump.
Slide the hose pinch off of the end of the old hose and onto the new hose.
Be sure that the threaded end of the hose pinch faces toward the open end of the new hose.
