I was skepticle researched it for 1 1/2 years before i bought it.

now all my wire hose is in the garage......

Like any new product not everyone is going to like it......

But it does what it is advertised to do......
1. Gains 10 degrees per 50' length over wire...
2. Easier to uncoil if it gets tangled.....
3. Lighter almost half the weight

The main guys that will like this :
1. portables who are limited on heat
2. long hose runs for TM - 100-300'
3. if you are tired of getting long hose tangled and knotted up at 2am in the morning and throwing it in a wad in your van.

Can you make it in custom lengths i.e. 35'?
He can make it any length. Stuff is very high quality. Seems to tske a little bit of use for it to change its propertie like being more flexible.
Otherwise well worth the investment.

I'm ordering a continuous 150' ⅜" and a 20' ⅜" whip from Anderson.... Can't use my portable wand on the TM no more though for general cleaning. I'll be over 2.5 GPM through the wand :oops:.
Been using 100' 3/8"continuous hose for a couple months . Took sometime to get us to it compared to the lighter and more flexible 1/4" hose . The constant heat and higher GPM has been worth it !
Damn Jim 150' ? That is a lot of hose (weight) to carry .

It's going on the TM's live reel, I use 3/8" Neptune with the portable on a electric cord reel. Only wheel off what I need, it's crazy fast to set up and break down. On the TM my 14 flow wand with 130' of 1/4" is about 1.8 GPM, with 3/8" it's 2.7 GPM+ and literally drills through any amount of heat the TM has in minutes. The new heat exchanger setup we are installing will handle it if we go easy with the big flow wand.

I used the solution line for the rest time yesterday. Besides looking better then my regular solution line it is definitely lighter in weight. I am curious to see how long the hoses' memory lasts. It is fighting me a little right now but so do all hoses when they're brand new.

I ended up not using it on my portable as planned because my TM was able to reach. I still prefer to run my TM then my portable setup even though my portable setup would of been just as powerful on that job.

i have had mine around 30- 50 hours?????

loosens up around 30 hours for a fuel heat TM

may take longer on a portable or lower heat TM

takes a little hose management as sometimes it will catch under edges of tables.....

but overall it is easier to role up....

i had my 200' long hose after a job....
it was thrown in a stack about 15-20 feet.....

I decided to test this by not uncoiling any of it before i wound it up.

With only one catch on a nail sticking out...
This 200' hose rolled up with only a few kicks of the hose while winding it up.....

no way you could do wire hose like this......

Here's a few stats so far with a 20' 1/4" whip between the TM and reel (haven't switched out the live reel whip yet):
400 psi GPM
8 flow wand 1.25
14 flow wand 1.5
600 psi GPM
8 flow wand 1.75
14 flow wand 2.0

The whip is killing me!

150' continuous 3/8" section of this hose completely consumes a 17" rokan reel and definitely holds heat to the wand way better than Neptune. Once broke in this hose will probably be my favorite, trumping Parker paraflex, similar but much less coily.

I'm very pleased with the hose as well. If I had one complaint it would be that its' unruly when new. Still waiting for the thing to break in and hopefully be more manageable.
Another thing I like other then the hose retaining the heat is that it's also a lot cooler when the solution line hits by bare skin. :)
