Pressure Washer Hose Purchasing Guide
How To Select The Right Hose To Suit Your Needs
Things To Consider:
We stock 10 | 15 | 20 | 30 | 40| & 50 Metre lengths.
Other lengths available on request.
Smaller Pressure Washers – 2.5hps that come with 6-8 Metre Hoses can be replaced with longer if required. Best not to go over 15-20 Metres as the units will lose some pressure & flow the longer you go.
As A Guide:
5-8 hp Machines Can Run Hose Lengths up to 30 Metres
9-15 hp Machines Can Run Hose Lengths up to 50 Metres
16-24 hp Machines Can Run Hose Lengths over 50 Metres
For Hose Lengths over 20 Metres you are best to consider a Hose Reel
for ease of transportation & use.

To Check Your Connection
Use Vernier Callipers, Ruler or Tape Measure
Measure across the diameter of the threaded male part of fitting
13mm = 1/4" | 14mm = 14mm | 16.5mm = 3/8” | 22mm = 22mm
3/8" & 22mm are the most common followed by 1/4" then 14mm
1/4" & 3/8" are based on Internal Tube Diameters.
