Crushed top hose

Replaced my expansion tank cap with a brand new one and now when the vehicle cools down, my top radiator hoses suction flat.

Could the cap be defective?

I also have a water pump leak and planned on replacing today too.

Whats the best way to get the old water pump gasket off??
It's "glued" on.

Put the "old" coolant reservoir cap on and no more crushed top hose.
The "new" cap was brand spanking new - not sure why it would vacuum the coolant hoses as the engine cools down.
Any ideas would be great, before I go buy another cap (the "old" one has damage at the very bottom).
