I'm pretty sure the pressure variations I have now are all due to the overnight temp hitting freezing with the days not much warmer.
The old tube slipped around the new one like a glove.

If it hadn't, I would've pumped up the tube a bit. Then I'd slip the old tube over it, wrapped electrician's tape around it every 12", then installed the new tube.
