    Once you see how hot the summer gets in Redding, CA. And how just one semi large earthquake away they are from floating all the way down to Mexico.
    You'll forgive Norman 74.

    Had to add this report from up north:

    Ron Werner
    " Yes. I'm really liking this new hose. Its light, takes the pressure and heat (well, my tm doesn't challenge it too much on the heat dept unfortunately) and it is EXTREMELY flexible. It doesn't coil near as much as the orange Parflex hose I have. I still coil it lariat style, ie over under loops."
    --------------
    Get some before the sale is over later this month.

    Are you suggesting that we need to NOT roll this up on the hose reel?

    image.jpg Hey Larry, what kind of metal are these crimps? They almost look like brass, but I’m not certain. Just curios. I’m excited to test my first thermoplastic hose tomorrow.

    Yes, with Parflex, intermittently near the wand. Color was hard to remove once it happened.

    Going to torture it tomorrow up in Tahoe


    Almost to pretty to use.

    That "do not use with steam" disclaimer on the hose might give a lawyer a run for its money

    Sorry, but WTF!!! Who the hell sells a solution hose for the carpet cleaning industry with “Do not use with steam” printed on it. Seriously!

    I hate to say it but this seems like a Mytee move.

    Tell that to the home owner if it pops and cuases damagor injury


    I'd sand that off if I were keeping it

    Most hoses have similar warnings. Maybe not printed on them but are in the specifications. Some hoses are dual purpose and have a separate hot water and steam rating. When using steam, you are using lots of vapor and very little water. Usually 5 percent or less.

    This hose has more loopholes in it than a carpet warranty.

    Goodyear Neptune 3000, one of the most popular carpet cleaning hoses is not recommended for steam service.

    That warning is for an actual "steam generator" which requires a hose capable of 350 degrees F.

    This hose was designed for Carpet Cleaning at up to 250 degrees F.

    ------------

    Matt; . . Excellent photo of the hose . . . The crimps are plated steel to reduce corrosion.

    Let us know how you like it . . .

    im interested, The air hose we use for fresh incoming water is thermoplastic and its actually really nice.

    Is there any possibility of getting 175ft section? thats what we always order, its the max that fits on our reels. Also its what we have found to be the perfect length to almost never need an extension.

    150ft comes up short and 200ft is longer than you need on 95% of our jobs, plus too long to fit on the reels

    Do you supply these types of crimps if they don't start rusting so soon?

    Not a big fan of plated steel. The plating wears off and then it rusts. I would prefer brass or stainless steel.

    I have found that typically the hose will need to be replaced or repaired before the connector deteriorates.

    This plating is more durable than common coatings.

    I was told it was yellow zinc.

    Stainless crimps are at least 3X the cost of plated crimps.
