    No good for pole hose, it kinks when bent past 90 degrees and is very cumbersome.

    Not particularly heavy, more awkward when it comes to coiling up etc.

    I use 1/4" on mine :confused: At least I think its John Guest. Came with the RO and JG fittings. Its light but too stiff and brittle for pole hose

    That's what I have on my RO, and I used to use it for work at some point, but wracking my brain to remember when and for what, I remember we used to cut it with these little plastic V shaped cutters, really bugging me now.....

    You've used it as pole hose then I guess? I'm just looking to try something different. I find the Gardiners yellow gets kind of sticky on the outside and the pu hose........well it coils up :rofl:. When I first started WFP, I used a clear hose. Can't for the life of me remember it's characteristics though.
