Water system hoses and connectors

Recently I replaced the drinking water pump in my Hunter 45.
I have to connect an accumulator to the system.
Problem is that there is no room to install them near each other.
For installation (in a bit remote area )I need the original hose and connector.
It looks like the hose is a standard on those boats (2010) and so are the connectors. (enclosed pics)
Any idea where can I get hose (details can be seen in the pic) and various kinds ( E.G: T shape / straight connect / L shape and so) connectors.

Maybe you do not need an accumulator. I do not have one on my Hunter 46 and powerboat with a Jabsco Par-Max Plus. What pump did you install?

I wish I won't need one but I believe I do because the flow of the new pump is larger then the demand of standard tap on the boat which causes the pump to activate on and off on and off during regular use of the tap.
The pump is Jabsco Par Max HD4 (see pic)
Thanks.

Same 4 gpm pump, which I recently installed on my powerboat. My sailboat has a 4.3 gpm Jabsco Par-Max4 31620-0092. No cycling.

I really like having an accumulator. I like that the pump doesn't have to run if someone rinses hands after going to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

I also installed a pressure gauge to help when troubleshooting water system issues.
