We have custom hose lengths. I wish someone would have told me this 7 year ago, but I learned last year

Spend the extra money on locking hose cuffs. the first time you're by yourself and drop a vac hose from the 3rd floor because the barb fitting is loose, you'll be happy.

Or the first time you are going up 5 floors one guy up top, and one guy in the bottom and the vac hose slips out and hits you on the back from 5 floors...ha!

Our solution hoses are all 165, and our first vac hose is 85 feet with a 15 foot 2nd hose. It’s almost perfect every time.

Why would I try something I have no need for.
In 42 years I have used just about everything out there mostly on other operators setups and still do see the need for a hose cuff.
Ok. I thought the same thing. Just keep your hose exactly the same way.

Just apologize to him and he’ll let you order again. Some kind of power trip

I have no idea what you guys are talking about, must be something before my time on TMF... Everytime I order from their website things have been really smooth and if I have any questions about shipment dates they are handled promptly.

He is sometimes very difficult to deal with I understand your thoughts.
