When use and select metal pipe, choose the the proper pressure rating. But that should based on the pressure of the pressure washer. Because when the actual pressure exceeds 1.25 times the normal pressure, the service life of the hose will be short. In addition, the service life of the flexible steel pipe also has a great influence. During the work of the high pressure washer, the pressure is very high. Thus, it is better to choose an pressure washer hose.
Focus on the pressure
When have a flexible metal tube, stop selection based on the high pressure cleaning host. Because the pressure and flow of ultra-high pressure has strict limit. Then the changes in pipe size will affect high pressure water. The tests have shown that replace the 4mm pressure washer hose with a 5mm hose shortens the service life by 1/3.
When the high pressure cleaner is working, the hose should be tighten and bent as much as possible. If it is to bend to ensure that the bend radius is too small, it is usually not less than 15 time. Otherwise it will cause the lateral steel wires of the reinforce layer to be drawn. Then cause the wires to shrink inside. Thereby reduce the pre-strength. Finally, the life span will reduce.
