Replaced my old Lectra San unit and all of the old hoses with this. It was stiff, but slid onto fittings fairly easily, so the job went pretty quickly. Looks (and smells) a lot better! We'll see how long it lasts.

Great quality hose bit too tight for 3/4"fittings

I used this for a newly installed Rule 25D Bilges on my SeaDoo. The size of the fitting from the bilge says 3/4". There was no way this was slipping over...Read complete review

I used this for a newly installed Rule 25D Bilges on my SeaDoo. The size of the fitting from the bilge says 3/4". There was no way this was slipping over the 3/4" barbed fitting on the Rule Bilge. Since it was already cut and approximately $4 a foot and the store is a good drive from my house, I decided to put the heat gun to it. The hose went on eventually but the hose doesn't have memory, if that makes sense. It will easily kink and remain that way. I wouldn't recommend it for my application.
