Designed for both pressure and vacuum use, NEWFLEX(R)PVC hose comes in light-, standard-, and heavy-duty versions. A hard PVC spiral reinforcement lets the hose resist crushing and kinking while remaining flexible. Because the spiral is within the hose wall or on the outside surface, the transparent tubing's interior is smooth for maximum flow. ID ranges from 3/8 inch (light duty) to 4 inches (standard and heavy duty).
