I remember an old rule about looping the hose - ie not just straight to outlet.
Maybe it off-sets the pressure ?
By looping I mean first around the down pipe then up and onto the connection point.
Probably more here better knowledge than me tho ...

Just drill out that connection on the right, push the hose on, and tighten a hose grip to make sure it doesn't come off.
