We tested hide-a-hose.

Pros

  • convenient having the solution hose hiding inside vac hose

Cons

  • reduces cfm (airflow) about 15% per 50 feet.
  • cools off the water temps from wind chill factor of air rushing through hose
  • a permanent change that is hard to undo
  • can catch debris on hose
  • does not extend life of solution as we thought cuz fittings take abuse
  • makes ends of vac hose difficult to use ‘cuffing’ along walls etc.

A smart alternative that accomplishes the one Pro is durable rubber bands like these. I used them for years without any major problems.

I’m really considering making a smaller size for portable users as they always seem to like strapping their hose together.
