Hoses fail for a variety of reasons, but the #1 reason is abrasion. Abrasion wears away the protective cover of a hose and exposes the wire or textile reinforcement that allows the hose to take the pressure. Once the cover wears away and the reinforcement is exposed, it is just a matter of time before the hose fails. Get ahead of this problem by using a protective hose sleeve, a support clamp, or by re-routing the hose. Hose protection is available as a nylon sleeve, plastic wrap, steel coil, and flat metal coil if you are protecting the entire length of the hose. If your hose is wearing in only 1 small section, 4″, 5″, and 6″ long hose protectors just zip-tie in place and protect just the part of the hose that is rubbing.
