What will keep a rubber hose from coming off at either end when it is subjected to pressure? The type of material the line is made of not nearly as important as the functional integrity of the line as a conduit as pressure between the manifold and the ALDA, that pressure can be as high as 1 BAR, 14.7 PSI, but usually its down around 10-11-12 PSI.
