Synflex R7, made by Eaton. You'll have to look for for a supplier in your area; might be someone that supplies hydraulic or pressure washing industries. Too much bitching from such a small market made most of the thermoplastic hose makers drop their specific carpet cleaning line of hose.

It's lighter, but harder to coil, and will not coil small enough to fit a on a typical high pressure reel. We rolled them with our vac hoses. It will also fail if repeatedly bent hard, like dropping the wand over and over on the hose fitting, but warns you with pinholes instead of blowouts.

The first rule of MB is not to reason with Smatty boy.. He's cut from a different cloth..

How's the shoulder, did you make a full recovery?

You’re operating off of assumptions too. We all do. If one of us posts his assumptions as fact is when we run the risk of a collective drop in board IQ.
Isn't that how AI works. takes info from OUT THERE , true or not, and incorporates it? 🙂

Excessive heat is the killer of all hoses. I've had high heat trucks, 250+degrees f and moderate heat trucks 180-210 degrees f. The hoses on my moderate heat trucks last 3-4 times longer than on my high heat trucks. Ps. I often use alkaline rinses.
