Hydraulic hose fix?

The hydraulic hose which runs from the pump to the reservoir is showing signs
weeping and cracking near the reservoir connection.  Can I just cut the hose
back a bit and splice in a new piece to connect to the reservoir, or should
I replace the whole thing?   It seems to be simply the supply hose for the
pump, so it shouldn't have to take any pressure.  I hate to spend big $$$ for
a new one if I don't really need to (the BB philosophy).
