    Bought grippas 6mm I/d hydro hose 100m.

    Pumps always run at 100psi (I love my water) but I'm getting gash flow through this hose. Gone from WCW 8mm I/d. Pumps fine as it's going well with my other 8mm I/d hose. Can't work out why I'm getting such a poor flow??? It's going about 50%

    So you have no flow controller just a pump running flat out? Your wondering why you're getting less water flow through 6mm hose pipe than you were through your 8mm hose? Is that it?

    Thought I'd add both pumps are fine with my 8mm hose so not a pump issue I doubt

    2mm surely can't make a difference?

    I understand it's going to restrict the flow, but when I went from 12mm I/d to 8mm I/d had no change what so ever. I drop another 2mm and this.

    It does Chris, makes at least 30% reduction in flow
