If the hose softens and tries to collapse, you can buy time by putting say heater hose size worm drive clamp to compress at the sunk in area to squeeze it back open. I've had one running like that for a year now. When they finally let go I usually put my own setup on there to not have to buy any more expensive hose, just ain't done that one yet. Other car I did myself still running fine many years later, can't even remember when I did it.
