Marine hose is a vital part of your boat. Itís used in lieu of pipe because itís flexible and it provides better and easier installations, especially where tight spaces, movement and vibration are a factor (typical in most boats). As plumbing they deliver, circulate and discharge the fluids (liquid and gaseous) for most operating systems (engine, generator, exhaust, bilge, drainage, live well, sanitation, potable and grey water, ventilation, gas appliance, climate control, etc.) and theyíre often connected as an extension of a hole in your boat (above and below the water line). A Marine Hose failure (bursting, leakage, obstruction, permeation) can ruin your day or worse (explosion, fire, sinking, carbon monoxide poisoning, breakdown [boat and/or system], noxious odors, costly repair and cleanup). Therefore, Marine Hose must be specially designed (with proper formulations and flexible heavy wall construction) to provide the best possible, long term performance and resistance to its fluids and aging in a tough environment (vibration and movement, heat and cold, ozone, salt air & water).
