What is the problem? You need to describe your issue.

It's a 2 person job - one person pulls the hose from the tank and the second pushes it. The trick is to attach the new hose to the end of the old hose at the head before you loose sight of it. And, very important - it's much, much easier to do if the hose is warm.

Are you going from the head to the tank? Home Depot may have your new hose. I'd try a double nipple connector, hook the new hose to the old hose and work it to the tank, or you can remove the fridge and run the new hose. Mike

Don't cheap out and buy just any old hose. If it is not the white waste rated hose you will be regretting it, and trying to figure out why you boat smells like S*&T until you replace it yet again.

Remove the drawer below the fridge, if I remember right that hose is fastened to the wall and floor in there, I may have been wrong you had to remove the fridge. Use a heat gum to warm the hose and not a open flame. Good Luc. Mike
