Does as designed. Be careful if exposed to direct sun all year.

It works well as a connector between the filter and treatment cannisters. It leaked straight out of the box until I tightened the couplings and works fine now. The couplings are plastic and will fade, dry out and crack if exposed to constant sunshine. This made the hose useless, so I ended up coupling the cannisters together without issue. The newest cannister design doesn't couple easily with an older one (from a few years ago, uses different mounting brackets), so I got a new hose to compensate for the design discrepancy.
Pros:Good quality hose. Does as designed.
Cons:Couplings are made of plastic and can dry out over time. Recommend you keep this in a shaded area.
