Pressure Hose repair

How much do yall pay to get hoses repaired?

Local guy told me $27, seemed high but have nothing else to go off.

Usually about $20. Only repair once though, toss after that. And now I normally carry an extra 150ft just in case.

It belongs in the trash if it didn’t blow near one of the ends. If it did use a field repair fitting yourself and repair it only once. When it busts that second time strip your fittings and toss it. I buy Gates field repair fittings for about $15, they’re reusable

Cost me $12 per pressed fitting. So a break in the middle would cost $24 . I usually on fix them if there broke near the end .

Called local hose place, they are $10 and can do swivel ends… place at $27 was the local PW place. Ive never done business with them, and doesnt appear ill start now.

When I questioned my local PW store’s prices he said it’s because they are a convenience store

Take it to a hose shop who use hydraulic presses and put it correct fittings… not a diy kit

Good advice Ken. Another word of advice is to develop a good relationship with the local guy. They’ll bail you out of some tight spots when they arise, and a good relationship greases the skids of commerce.

I know you deal with them, i dont doubt they are good at what they do unless they show me otherwise. There will be a day ill need them, but was just shocked at the $27.

I tried to buy my hot water skid local. They tried to sell me a 5gpm hotsy for 11k. I told them I’ll tell them where to buy this one I want for 6,500. I’ll give them 500-800 on top of the cost. They said that’s not how it works. They have a manufacture(hotsy) to support. I said I can’t justify the price difference. A few weeks later they screwed me on a rental. I try to avoid the place now. I do need them from time to time so I keep it cordial and friendly but I try to get most things from PT or a few other vendors online. I tried to support the local place, but it didn’t work out.

Well, our local guys here are not as well informed as the PressureTeks and Southside Equipments, or the folks in Pensicola. However, they ARE local, and they support my hustle with goods and equipment that are within 15 minutes, not 2-5 days. That’s important to me. I spent over $2000 last month with these guys, but when I need something, I walk in, grab it, and get back to work. My CC is on file with them, and no matter how long the line, I’m in and out of there in moments, not minutes.

As for the hose repair @Donut, you should see the parts, labor, and equipment that are necessary to repair your hose. Then be grateful you didn’t, because they invariably fail within weeks, blowing out not at the repair site, but at another weakened spot on the hose. Been there, done that! Won’t depend again on a hose that’s blown once ever again.
