Which hose do I want?
The opinions on jetter hose are very diverse, and eventually comes down to personal preference. Given that, we offer 4 quality hoses, made in the USA and Italy, with features across the spectrum of styles.
The science of Physics tells us that 2 objects touching create friction. The more 2 surface areas touch, the greater the friction created. (known as Friction Co-efficient).
Slither style hoses, ie. hose with a rough surface, were introduced to the USA 8 years ago. This was a break through in hose technology, away from the traditional smooth covers that had a very high amount of friction.
The rougher the surface, the less is the friction.
Over time, manufacturers looking to launch something new, have started to re-introduced smooth hoses. Not because they perform better, but just because they are different.
We offer the entire range:
