A product most consumers are familiar with, the vacuum hose is a godsend when it comes to cleaning the hard to reach areas of your home, vehicle, or workplace. The most common size of hose (flexible or otherwise) that you are likely to see being used with vacuum cleaners or shop vacs everywhere are those that are smaller in diameter (primarily, 2” duct and 3” duct). The reduced diameters of these hoses consequently lessen the amount of force the vacuum or shop vac in question needs to be able to generate in order to be effective. Because they maximize the pressure present in the collection duct, heavy duty hoses (like those present in shop vacs) are able to suck up as much debris as possible with efficiency. By keeping your workspaces and living areas clean, flexible hoses are an obvious and essential component of almost any home or office.
Collection duct vacuums and shop vacs typically possess large, reinforced drum containers for the purpose of safely sealing as much abrasive material as possible. However, in order for your machine to function at its greatest potential, not only does the interior collector drum need to be durable, but so too do the flexible hoses themselves. The hose not only wears on the interior as debris passes through, it also wears on the outside as it is dragged around.
