6 mm is a lot lighter and easier to drag about but will give a slightly less flow , but it’s not an issue , you might need tk turn your flow rate up on the controller a bit . I would never go back to 8 mm hose .

We use the Gardiners stuff they don’t  sell it anymore but daqua and Grippatank hose is the same yellow microbore we use it with hot water and it’s fine lasts 2-3 years or so , we give ours a hard time dragging it around pebble dash walls , vehicles driving over it it is very robust

It’s minibore Daqua sells not microbore. If you look at the hoses. 

According to Gardiners they sell 6 mm microbore ?
