Leo's on the right track. I'd be in line as one of his first customers.
That said, I DID find an off-the-shelf tool that helps somewhat. An auto exhaust pipe expander
Warming the hose still helps. I was able to expand one hose to the point where it started to split, so there are limits. And unlike steel exhaust
pipes, plastic sanitary hose reverts back to its original size (i.e.; too small to fit on the "matching" barb you bought from the same place) pretty quickly.
