    I know it is more expensive but what is the price for ss or brass compared to plated? I think a lot of people would rather pay a little more for the durability as long as it is not too outrageous.

    I agree.
    When buying, just give us the option. I would pay more and buy the stainless. Too late for me though.

    I used the Larry hose today on carpet and upholstery

    Noticeably lighter than Parflex

    Noticeably more flexible

    Does not feel as hot to the touch


    The skin is tacky/grabby as well as a pita to hand coil but I'll assume both will get easier as it breaks in


    Only time will tell on the durability and longevity, but it sure appears to be a winner.



    I dont think I'll use it anymore, I want it to look new for the RMH raffle.


    Thanks for letting me try it Larry, by the time our Parflex needs replacing this stuff should be well tested.

    450CD099-8E00-4DE2-8DF9-500FCA48AE00.jpeg On the first run, I’m liking it. I’m a little curious though... when I pull the trigger after several dry passes, the sound of the water shooting out is quieter than it normally sounds. After a few wet passes, it sounds normal. I don’t think it’s steam, but I’ve been wrong before. Any clues?

    The hose says "No Steam". You better pull all that off your truck immediately.

    My water doesn’t get hotter than 235f. And this hose is rated at 250f. I’m not worried.

    Matt, I'm sorry. I just can't do it anymore to you. I'm just screwing with you. Like the time I told you that you can't use your Cimex because it didn't have a built in breaker. lol

    You’re a SUMBITCH! You really had me worried on that also. Dude, I drove a 6hr round trip to get that cimex and was driving myself crazy trying to figure out how and where to put a stupid breaker on it

    Steam is not 212 degrees. That's just the boiling point of water. Your machine does not produce steam. It produces super heated water which passes through the hose. True steam machines usually start at around 300-400 degrees. Can get much hotter for specific operations.

    I was thinking the opposite of steam this morning. Freezing. What happens to the hose if the water freezes? Since there's no black rubber inside, I think...Does it damage the hose somehow if it's frozen with both ends not open?

    The new blue hose has a white inner tube.

    We have frozen some with no immediate damage, like the black water we would see immediately with wire-braid hose.

    Freezing is tough for any carpet cln. hose, as pressure can rise to 5000 PSI or so.

    The 3000 PSI rating on the new is much higher than the PARFLEX 1750 psi.

    Since the braid is stronger,

    the new blue hose probably does not expand as much from static pressure.

    That smaller pressure storage capacity doesn't make as much noise.

    That kinda makes sense. Either way, I'm still happy with it. The heat shield that covers the crimps is a little flimsy, compared to what I'm used to, but it'll work. Is that your product, or does that come from the hose company?
