Well guys, not to put a negative spin on all of these fine efforts, but, , all of these hoses are not designed to be twisted, poked and excessively stretched. I'm sure you can get the hose on, but I wouldn't bet much on the life expectancy of that item, especially if I were in a desert (or other hot place) and it was usder max pressure and heat. If you must use this type of repair, just cut 1/4 or 3/16 inch (or a bit more if you must) off the bypass outlet in the head with a hacksaw. Not elegant surely, but it will not harm anything and hose replacement will be a whole lot easier for you and less mechanically stressful for the little hose that could... ..

No matter what you fix, there will always be something else to fix..
"Warranty" is just another way of postponing the inevitable.
