Favorite Flex Hose or Ducting and Why? “My personal favorite ducting product is the ‘PE Flex Commercial’ vacuum duct. I like it because it is easy to carry out and it is solid enough to be crush resistant. This is a pretty sturdy and tough hose that can be used in dry-vacuum, wet-vac and even in commercial pool vacuum applications. You won’t ruin it if you accidentally sit on it.”
