2 people who could help you

Glynn as he know the best and cheapest place to get hoses from

John Flynn who will tell you about water tanks and added heat as he has a good supplier and has used a mega port with a non standard tank set up before         ( actually I swapped him mine then we swapped back , long story! )

These 2 are on this bb

Hope this helps


Ps do you still want those turbos?

I have found surprisingly good prices for vacuum hose at regent hose and hydraulics outlets ,worth having a look if you have one nearby.

The end are properly known as cuffs i have been told.

All the best

Geoff, none of the water heater on Omnipoles website are suitable for use with your machine without major alteration.

but the hose looks good value Wink.

I have an aluminiun tank for sale as well, could let it go at a good price.

Just contacted Omnipole and they have quoted me 9.34 per metre for 1 1/2 inch vacuum pipe,where did you get 4 per metre for 2 inch from ? Shocked Tongue


Posted by gwrightson (gwrightson), 3 February 2004
yes  alot of difference between 4 00 a metre and nerly double  
some thing wrong some were
so what is the right pricge  
Posted by Old_Master (Old_Master), 3 February 2004
Squeky the price is 4.00 a metre for 2" vacuum tube. Ill get a price tommorow for 11/2" for you, not sure what tube they quoted you on, at that price it sounds like pressure hose.

Old Master,

Have you got the price yet for the vacuum pipe?


Posted by gwrightson (gwrightson), 5 February 2004
hahahahaah  yes i got a price from chem spec

what do you think
i sent a nice e mail back to julie roberts the sales girl i assume  declining the offer  
unless was  THE Jjuliia roberts  tried to contact omnipole with the offer of 4   a metre but cant seem to get any response   regards  geoff

I got an answer - The hose you telephoned my office about was apparently a two tone hose with a special coil threadHuh
is this right?
The hose I quoted for @ 4.00 Metre was normal 2" vacuum hose. To be honest I'm not sure what the difference is!

Posted by Old_Master (Old_Master), 5 February 2004
Mind you even if you want the special hose we are still almost 100.00 cheaper on a 15metre length. So still good value Grin

Hi Old-master,

No I asked for Vacuum hose , He asked me what it was for and I told him that it was for a truckmounted carpet cleaning machine, he seemed to know what it was that I needed.

So can you still get 2 inch for 4 a metre?

Posted by Old_Master (Old_Master), 6 February 2004
Yes vacuum hose 4.00 per metre
Posted by squeaky (squeaky), 6 February 2004
Hi Glyn,

Have you a telephone number for me to contact the right people to order some pipe.

Thanks much appreciated

Mark Wink

Is this the type of hose that you can screw a cuff onto or is it the type that has to be put on with large jubilee clips?
