I was about to buy some 8/6 mm pvc hose and saw some one talking about 5/7mm. Which do you use?

Can't see it being that critical, they only need a dribble of water and it's under pressure anyway.John S -
Thanks. OrderedThe more I know, I know, I know the less. (John Owen)
Thanks Jonathan for the 8mm dimension, maybe I'm being thick, but is that the inside diameter of the Hose? Also is this a standard size to fit directly onto the pump outlets?
John mentioned, the system will be under pressure, so will I need jubilee clips on the hose at the pump side, or is the hose a very tight push fit?
From a lot CNC builds I've seen, people have a blue liquid in the coolant system. What is this, standard automotive anti freeze?
The pump depends.? Most I've had needed step down adaptors from 1/2" to 6 or 8mm. Any decent tropical fish place will stock these.
If on the other hand it's a sealed system then the pressure will be what the pumps rated at.?
I use the simple method the water is Distilled water with Decent anti freeze 60/40% mix.
