    How many metres do you need as you can buy a 10 metre coil of really hard wearing hose from www.screwfix.com , I have a mix of 3 different hoses the stuff from screwfix I connect to sub pump and have 2 metres which i have then connected to some 1" pond hose of amazon which is really flexible .

    Then i have the more rubbery stuff which loves to split from the flexi stuff to tank a total of 30 metres , The really flexible stuff is nice and lightweight only had 2 months so cant comment on real durability .

    I've been using the plastic green rippled hose for 9 years without a hiccup. No chance of tips or punchers with it

    have a look on www.amazon.co.uk and type pond hose in search box the seller First4Spares sells really flexible hose its a bit like the plastic waste pipe from washing machine . 10 metres of hose is £15.79 with free delivery .
