No. All of that PVC tubing is garbage. Most clear tubing will haze up after a few weeks once it starts plasticizing. You would have to do a bit more research on what tubing (if any) will remain clear longer.

Hose clamps really depends on what barbs you are using. You need to make sure you use large barbs. An example would be the difference between the bitspower 3/8 barbs and the Enzotechs. There is no way you could use 3/8 Enzotech barbs w/o using a hose clamp as it would fall off immediately. However barbs like the Bitspower ones are a lot larger and have an extremely tight fit.
