Question Funky Rear Brake Hose Replacement

Several threads go on about the lousy black rubber hose between the rear reservoir and master cylinder. Apparently it degrades and causes the brake fluid to turn black. Well, I'm there with that . The dealer says they all do that and a bleed is not scheduled for a year = could care less. That murky fluid can't be doing any good down line. Funny, though, how there is nothing wrong up front - crystal clear - go figure.

Has anyone found a good replacement for this hose, one that keeps the fluid clear?

I notice that the front hoses are fixed with Helix (sp?) type spring clamps but the rear hose has those one time type clamps, unless you have the fancy tool for them. What clamps are anyone using if/when they replace the rear hoses?

Much obliged .
