Brand new on this site. Just got a nice Champion 2600 psi/2.3 gpm gas powered washer and it came with a plasticy kind of hose. Even in 50’s and low 60’s the hose is very stiff & holds its curls. Difficult to lay out straight & maneuver. Perhaps in the summer it would be OK but very difficult to work with now. One use I got it for is to wash under car for road salt removal so it will be used in much colder temps.
I was thinking that a rubber based hose would be more suitable or possibly another material. Even tho many ads say “flexible” the reviews often disclaim this.
I only need 25 foot length. I see a lot of complaints about hoses bursting, forming big bulges that have or might create a dangerous safety hazard, etc.
As a senior on fixed income, of course I have to watch the bucks.
So, looking for guidance from the wise. Any tips, especially from a hose you own & use rather than too much theoretical is greatly appreciated. Brand & model would help if possible.
