PostSubject: Time for a new hose   Mon Sep 29, 2008 3:29 pm

I just bought a new 3/4" Blue Kuri-Tec Thermoplastic PVC hose today from my local rubber products store. This hose looks TOUGH! I bet I'll get much more life out of this than my old Neverkink hose.

Going to break 'er in tomorrow, got a tough roof to tackle. Light grey 20 year old roof, never been cleaned, both sides are hideous, especially the north side. It's going to take a LOT of bleach on this one. I'll probably go through about 50 gallons of roof mix.

Here's the link to my new roof hose.

Mike, how many continuous feet did you get? How was the price?

100ft. I paid $.95/ft for the Kuri-Tec PVC 3/4" hose.

I still have about 90ft of Neverkink hose left, that I will still use until it busts too many times that it becomes too short to use.

GRRR, got rained out today.

I got half-way through the roof with my new hose and it started fu@king raining. Rain washed off all the chemicals before they had a chance to soak in and work it's majic. Roof is still streaky with only parts of it clean.

Sucks I have to go back out and waste more time and gas, not to mention more chemical, which now costs twice the price I paid last time. Mad

I'll probably end up using 100 gallons of mix on one freaking roof!

On the bright side, I love my new hose. It's lighter weight than my neverkink hose and it's slick surface makes it easier to drag, works great!

I THINK I "fixed" the forum Mike ?
I love the Kurri Tec hose, we use red 5/8 everyday.
Talk about bullchit, people think big hose is harder to use ?
That is because the idiots dont PULL all the hose on the roof to begin with.

They fight the freaking hose, the dumb azzes.

We managed a grand to day, but did nothing yesterday ....
