That's what I was thinking.

I didn't want to have to make standard hose fit and and search for proper clamps if it was easy to find a suitable plastic hose that would simply push on and not leak.

I remember years ago dealing with a gravity feed water system in rural TN. Poly butyl pipe ran along the ground to the holding tank and was used to plump the house. That stuff always leaked. The joint where the male connector was forced into the pipe weakened the pipe wall and it eventually leaked. The leak would either make a mess &/or allow air into the system which would require priming the pump and bleeding the air - pretty inconvenient especially in the winter.
85SD 240K & stopped counting painted, putting bac together. 84SD 180,000. Probably up for sale in the fall 2020 still have it. 85TD beginning to repair to DD status. Waiting on shop to do minor but more than I can do rust.
