I really like flex hose for the rare occasions when I need to hook up to a sink.
The pos rubber hose I got from ace the black color comes off when you roll it up if it's wet outside.
My red hose doesn't do it, just the black... Have you used this brand/style before?
I use poly-rubber blend 3/8" air hoses for water fill on the truck. Each 50' section on a cord reel with garden QC on each end.
let us know how it holds up, Nick
the hose should be fine...that type FM fitting though.....isn't one I've found to be tremendously durable with regular daily use
I've always gotten best life out of red rubber, 190 temp hot water rated hose
I have the black rubber hose on my van. I don't like it. It's too grabby and leaves my hand or towels black when I roll it up on the reel. I'm thinking about replacing it with something slippery.
air compressor hose is the best for a carpet cleaning truck, 100ft is like less than 5lbs and fits on a smaller live reel
surprisingly the orange one from harbor freight is my favorite, still using the same one from 5yrs ago.
Ohh harbor freight. I love having an excuse to go there. Thanks.
I hate having I go to harbor freight so I never go.
I like the air hose on a reel idea. I'll probably upgrade to that soon.
1/2 inch blue water hose, 300 psi rated for hot water. Soft and coils easy. I carry 100 feet with an extra 50 feet hanging up just in case. Long lasting. The one in the pic is over 10 years old.
Surely Ron, that's just one of a large collection.
Please, NO MORE PICS, I now have to go shower after seeing that filthy shit.
Wrong thread Doug...
Did I miss a thread with discussing pictures somewhere? Tag me please.
Butler has a Grey Goodyear rubber hose. Stuff has been bullet proof for years on our vans... Years!
Buy it once I guess you could say...
One hose on the 1993 van still going...
No. Not the wrong thread. Did you see the mess in that van around that dirty greasy hose?
There is no mess in the van. Behind the hose is a hot water heater and the floor was much abused before the TM went in. No, I don't wash that hose as it gets dragged across the ground several times a day.
I got fooled by the beefy looking fittings on a Goodyear hose once before. Aluminum anodized to look like brass.
I bought three supposedly heavy duty rubber hoses at HD and returned them after two weeks. The counter person said she didn't know why they sold them, as they were the most returned product she'd seen.
Turned out they were listed as rubber on the shelf, but the package (like yours) said 'rubber formulation', and a form of plastic, not rubber.
Hope yours are the real thing, or returnable.
I didn't get mine at HD
I forget where I bought them ..could of been Tractor Supply??
Maybe Ace ??
I do recall they were "all rubber" ...and weren't cheap
Like $49/50ft if I recall
they last "forever"
