This is a very flexible, lightweight, thin-walled PVC hose reinforced with a vinyl covered steel wire helix.
The white PVC wall is further reinforced with a nylon mesh, except for the 3/4" size.
The interior is smooth-walled for unimpeded flow.
This hose is almost as lightweight as heater vent hose.
• Electric or manual bilge pump intake and discharge

• Livewell inlets and above waterline drains

• Resistant to mild chemicals and saltwater
• For added clamping protection, can be used with Shields Series 142 left-hand threaded Vac Cuffs (sold separately, e.g. Order#177524)
