so, two 2 1/2 hoses will work better than one 4" hose at the blower inlet??
Even though the area of a 4" hose is larger than two 2.5 or two 2" hoses, the 2's are easier to connect to the waste tank than a single 4" hose, and the 2's will work just fine. A single 4 would work, but you also have to attach a filter to the opposite end of the tank connection, so as not to get any debris into your blower.

When making a hole in your recovery tank, I prefer to do it into the lid using PVC fittings so there is no welding required.

I feel like 3 to 5 years is when I will be ready for a new truck mount.
