6-5. Umbilical (Cont).
Pneumofathometer hose. (figure 6-2)
Both the diver and surface ends of the hose require female connectors.
Ensure that the hose ends are squarely cut, clean, and free of any foreign matter.
Place two clamps (1) over the end of the hose (2), alternating their position.
Insert an extra-long-gland, female connector (3) into the end of the pneumofathometer hose.
Move the clamps toward the connector until they are evenly spaced over the gland, 1/4-inch from the end
of the hose and 1/4-inch between clamps.
Tighten the clamps until the connector is securely captured within the hose.
