Larger gutter vac hose

Recommended Posts

Has anyone upgraded their gutter vac hose to 2.5in (63mm) I've been getting some blockages in my grippavac and was thinking of a larger hose and a clear hose so I can see where the blockages are.  A lot of my houses here in Australia have gum leaves and twigs so probably harder to suck up.

 

Also is there a way to test for suction, I feel like I've lost a little suction power.

We use 2.5" from the pole to the tank, far better with less issues! Test wise grab a bag, fill it up with tins etc and weigh it. Then get the pole or pipe and try lift the bag up and you will be able to see the life capacity of the machine.

Thanks, I may give the bigger hose a try. No one else have any experience with the bigger diameter hose or you just don't want to talk to me because I'm an aussie :1f603:
