is that the standard diameter hose or the tiny one?

This is the tiny hose, I use one of these to send water to my cooper cooling ring when homebrewing...purchased last year in Wilko clearance these are good well made hose pipes thou expensive.

Looks ok......YouTube video here

Hmmm... I need a hose for my pressure washer, but I can't check the manual to see what was recommended diameter of the hose. Anyone knows?

Its usually standard 15mm push fit but if you want proper pipe see this 10m for £17.99 in Argos... argos.co.uk/pro…412

good find PF, heat

Half inch - 12.7mm standard garden hose is good for all domestic pressure washers.

This 7.5mm would restrict flow and depending how thirsty your unit is, wreck the pump.

It works with a pressure washer. Just non standard hose fit, so have to change the end. If you think it won't fit, it will, just have to soak it in boiling water to stretch it over the connector. I use it with Bosch unit

Great Deal - Thanks

anyone know how this karcher hose compares, as ordered it yesterday, but now seen this post although don't need the reel and bits just best hose. diy.com/roo…prd

​from what little I know karcher is a superior product

I reserved this last week for same price but ended getting the bigger kit from Wickes for 34.99. it's 30m and all the usual add ons

They are both good hoses, just different sizes.

The one youv'e ordered is 1/2" ID. This is standard size for garden hose.
1/2 provides good flow and ideal for pressure washers, filling buckets etc. Takes the standard 1/2" hozelock etc fittings that you find everywhere.

One in this thread is nearly half the intenal diameter and will provide around half the flow and volume.
No good for pressure washers and takes longer to fill buckets etc.
Is however easier to store and more managable. Ideal for watering plants, small patios, balconies etc.

Yeah you can stretch it and make it fit, it might run but wont be doing your pump any good.

Pressure washers are positive fixed displacement pumps and displace the same amount of volume with each revolution.
The amount of water displaced is set by the pump pistons size and not water input.

If your feeding your pump less water than it is trying to use it creates voids of air at inlet. When these are then pressurised they violently burst causing damage to pump. In a piston pump it will also prematurely wear the flexible slipper joints on the pistons. Its called cavitation.

Manufacturers state a minimum hose and flow rate for exactly this reason.

My pressure washer outputs 9l/min. My 1/2" garden hose outputs 12l/min. If I restricted the diameter of hose it would without a doubt damage washer over time.

If you have low water pressure it makes problem even worse.

Look into it, I work with hydraulics daily and cavitation is one of the biggest causes of premature failure.

Will look into it. Never gave it much thought really as it all sounds as though it's alright (naive there maybe) personally my water pressure is very high, so although the diameter is reduced, still confident it's getting enough water.

Higher water pressure can provide higher flow through smaller diameter.
Length of hose also affects flow as well as check valves and reduced bore valves.

It all depends what output flow your washer has. Some are as low as 5l/min and profesional 3ph or petrol units up to 20l/min.

May work ok on your washer but for someone else who has poor flow at tap or more powerfull unit It could cause serious damage which is not covered by warranty.

If you or anyone else is ever in doubt, fill a container from the end of hose you will be using and time how long it takes to fill. You can then work out lpm.
Compare this to max flow stated in manufacturers spec + 10% margin.

5.5l/min. Bosch 33-11. Tap easily outputting far greater than that, even with smaller diameter hose,

I bought one last year to use in my motorhom, it takes longer to fill the massive water tank but when on site but it's well worth it because of it's size and weight and it's good quality. For this price you can't not buy it.

Yay! I can finally wash my car!
