Tank-Flex Hose

Conventional Hard Rubber Wire Reinforced Suction Hose

Super-duty Tank-Flex hard suction hose is the ultimate workhorse with a tough synthetic Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) rubber cover that resists wear on the fireground while standing up to ozone damages. It has a special wire helix and nylon fabric reinforced liner that boosts durability—it can withstand pressure if required. Tank-Flex is more flexible than most standard hard suction hoses allowing for better all-around handling with quick and easy hookup. Use for drafting from any rural water source. Also approved for municipal water supply transfer.
