Very simple install. Simply but a line and slip the hose on. But another thing to be certain is that the drain valve is closed. You can check this by placing your finger on the drain and if you feel any suction then its open if not then your good.

The only time this has happened is when people hook up the lines backwards and even then there are very few people this has happened to. I wouldn't worry to much about it. Both the Elite and Rx come with instructions while they are not the best they will guide you through it. And you can post up a picture on the forum when your done for us to verify for an extra safety measure

O'Reilly's or any auto parts store. I had to go with blue hose the first go round because they didn't have black that day!!
