    I would use a female fitting on the 8mm hose

    http://www.gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/acatalog/EZ-Snap_Range.html (link is messing about :( (EZ-Snap™ Female End-Stop Coupling 8mm barb)

    That way if your hose comes disconnected you wont be pumping out water.

    I also find its better walking through houses with the pipe (no drips)

    Make sure you buy the 8mm BARB

    Use jubilee clips for the love of god!!!

    Thats the 8mm hose sorted.

    Now you need to buy on of these

    http://www.gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/acatalog/ez-snapmale-tail.html (id go with 5mm for a better fit)

    That will go into the pole hose.

    Everything will be a tight fit.

    So boil some water (enough for a cuppa as well :)) Place hose into boiling water for a few seconds and makes the job easier.

    for the pole hose (6mm) You can use these

    http://www.gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/acatalog/inner-ring-o-clip-hose-clamp-stainless-steel.html

    As I say for the 8mm hose, use jubilee clips!

    I would also invest in one of these
