Hi 24vic,

There should be a clamp that looks like the one on the upper hose. Check if the tabs are at upper portion, hidden by something around it.

Hey I found out how to work with bottom hose firt if you look at the hose you. Ll see an open section at end of hose there is a tap just bend it up and then with a big pair of chandle locks turn the hose 1/4 inch either way then wiggle hose off, you my have to diconnect the hose to to over flow when it is off you. Ll see why you had to turn it, notches inside, you must turn it to get pass them, then it slides off, to replace do the same in reverse
