    Product Description

    2.5" Truck Mount Vacuum Hose:

    • Not just for Carpet Cleaning, this Pro-Flex 2.5" vacuum hose is the same as the Lil' Better series carpet cleaning hoses. Strong, chemical & heat resistant yet light-weight & flexible! Don't learn the hard way... lesser vacuum hoses will kink, leak, tangle and degrade quickly in harsh environments. This is a super premium, high quality carpet cleaning vac hose.
    • Experience your Truck-Mounts Full Power potential! This 2.5" carept cleaning vacuum hose is second to none. Built heavy duty, yet surprisingly light, for ease of use by the Professional Carpet Cleaner who wants nothing but the very best. This vac hose will not crush, kink or tear. 
    • Built to handle the high heat & chemicals associated with powerful Truck-Mounted Steam Extraction Systems. 
    • This super premium Carpet Cleaning Hose will increase the vacuum in high powered truck-mounts by approximately 30%. (Actual vacuum increase will vary based on blower size and amount of operators). 
    • This vac hose comes naked (without hose cuffs) or other vacuum hose accessories, but we have regular EVA screw on cuffs and a multitiude of Cool Cuffs available to add on the product page. 
    • Adding this 2.5" carpet cleaning vacuum hose to your truck mounted, engine driven hot water extraction machine, will do more to increase extraction power, than increasing your truck mounts blower by one full size, and at far less expense.  
    • Upgrading to 2.5" vac hose will also decrease, rather than increase the load on your truck-mounts engine, and it will even help decrease fuel consumption.
     
    2.5 Vac Hose Advantages:
     
    • Reduces fuel consumption by reducing air flow resistance
    • Saves money compared to upgrading blower 
    • Carpets dry FASTER. 
    • Is surprisingly easy to handle. 
    • Flexible to comfortably coil into 3' diameter circles.
    • Is highly chemical resistant 
    • Will Last for many Years! 
    • Non-marring, Very sturdy & PVC Free! 
    • Product is built from Polyethylene, a much safer & extremely durable plastic. 

     

    2.5" Vac Hose Uses:

    • Use with any truck-mounted steam extraction system to increase cleaning efficiency, dry carpets faster and reduce fuel consumption. 
    • If you don't use 2.5" hose, you're suffocating your Truck-mount.

    Tips for using 2.5" Vac Hose:

    • For best results, use enough length to reach from your machine into the room you are cleaning with an 8' whip of 2" hose at the end. 
    • Also, using a Cleaning Wand with a 2" down-tube will greatly enhance results, drying times and cleaning speed, as a standard 1.5" wand will put too much restriction on the air-flow, negating the potential benefits of using 2.5" vacuum hose. 

     

    2.5" Vac Hose Connections:

    • To connect to a machine that has 2.5" outlets: Simply connect directly to the Recovery Tanks 2.5" outlet and add an inline filter of your choice.
    • To connect to a machine that has 2 x 2" outlets: Run 2 short lengths (about 10' each) of standard 2" truck-mount hose out from the vacuum tank to the ground outside the vehicle. Then connect each one to an inline filter of your choice (or one of the Stainless Steel Basket Filters available). Then run another short length (2' each) of 2" vacuum hose out the other side of the filter until connecting both 2" hose ends to a 2"x2"x2.5" Stainless Steel Y. Then connect you 2.5" hose to the 2.5" end.

    1. Great Hose! Review by Scott Larson
      Rating
      I ordered this hose from this website, and I just wanted to comment on how incredible the quality is! This is the premium hose I was looking for, and is extremely crush resistant (and resilient), and does not cave under pressure at all from my roots 5.9 blower. I weight 167 lbs, and if I stand on it, it barely compressed as all. No annoying kinking and crushing like some of those cheap hoses I've used. Glad those are a thing of the past! Chemical resistance, I'm not entirely sure because I've only used carpet cleaners and solvents that I extracted during the cleaning process, with no issues at all. I'm assuming from reading the chemical resistance chart on the hose page on the website, that it is chemical resistant to many other chemicals as well, but that was not a key issue to me due to my carpet cleaning only application. All in all, great hose, with a reasonable price (the best I was able to find online for shipping to my area) for the quality of this hose. If you are using a small portable cleaning system, I'd say this hose might be over-kill, but If you're running one of the high powered truck-mounts, a hose like this is critical! Regarding the ecology rating above, I did not give it 5 stars because it's still plastic, but the company does have a recycling program that you can take advantage of if you can't recycle it in your area. Also, due to the quality of this hose, it will probably outlive the cleaner! (Posted on 4/20/2015)
