Poly Hose
Permalink  
 


Recently bought some 1" hose, polybraid for the inlet side of my pump. The hose  has a flat shape to it and is not perfectly round. The last time  I used my 5850 pump ,I was having trouble with the pump loosing prime. I could not find a air leak anywhere so I assumed it had something to do with my  hose being semi-flat. My  hose is only 8 ft long. What do you guys think?  Is there a different hose that won't go flat available? Or am I missing something?

I have NEVER seen any polybraided AG Hose, and polybraid can be soft hose, not the best choice for the inlet side of a pump. True AG Hose is Stiff, usually yellow in color, not clear polybraid, can u post a pic ?

A roof cleaning pump needs a stiff intake hose that will not suck shut, we try to use stiff AG Hose on the intakes of our pumps, when we can. I would simple remove and replace that piece of hose, to eliminate it as a potential problem.
