Need new hose

What’s a good 100’ hose I can get for the intake to my buffer tank?

I’m partial to flexzilla. Stanley FatMax hose is supposed to be the same thing, just a different color.

Harbor Freight water hose works great and it’s very tough. $29.99 for 100’. A bit heavy though but momma ain’t raise no sissies.

I’m a Flexzilla fan myself. I have 200’ on the PW trailer and 100’ on my house. I can’t imagine why I would buy anything else. You should price shop for it, lots of different prices.

Flexzilla of course

Hard to beat $25 Walmart garden hose for price, durability and ease of purchase. It has far outlasted any flexilla hose of have tried. The Zero G stuff started leaking at the male end within a day and had separated working two.

I’ve been using continental from Home Depot for over a year without failure. I’m hard on hoses and they’re still going strong. Never kinks either.

My harbor freight hose kinks when it gets below 60°. I’m hard on hoses too and these just hold up. Besides, like @Innocentbystander’s Walmart hose (thanks for supporting big blue, by the way) I can replace it for very little money and it is easily obtained. Also, that $29.99 price is for the 3/4". I think 5/8" is $24.99 for 100’.

5/8 is what we use. 3/4 takes up way too much space on the reel

No, the yellow stuff

I have 200’ of 3/4" on my reel and could probably fit another 200’ just fine. Maybe even 250’. I have the same massive Cox reel that Brodie has on his rig.

1/2 Goodyear Red Hose, to a Cox reel to a Hudson valve… Light and durable… I only roll off what I need and lock the reed… I carry 175 feet

Going on 6 years and it still looks new! I bought it by the foot though, so no crimps on it
Love it!

Yeah, that’s why we roll with flexzilla to show 'em we pros. hahaahaha

Flexzilla lays pretty flat on my reel when I don’t pull it all of. I wonder if it’s restricting flow.

Do they sell Goodyear at homedepot ?

APEX 8650 , hot and cold 5/8. Have ran it since last September,full time, Tougher than a pine knot…
