    What type of hose?

    What type of hose is better to use for the pressure side of the jetworks valve? It doesnt matter how tight I get the clamps It still leaks. I have decided the hose is to stiff to make a good seal. right now Im using the standard hose sent with the holeshot kit. I have broken several clamps already trying to get them tight enough with no luck.

    I know there is a better clamp that requires a special tool but I dont have one so it would be easier to get a softer hose.

    What kind of PSI are we looking at going to the valve?

    thanks

    I haven't had a problem with mine leaking... are you sure you are leaking around the hose, and not the Jetworks itself?

    I use some bright yellow airhose from Lowes just for the "bling"; Abbott and I are long lost brothers.

    The first time it was leaking from both the valve and the hose but now its just the hose. Mine is that clear braided stuff.

    yours looks good.

    I wouldn't use the clear braided stuff for anything smaller than 1/2"... it's too stiff to get a good seal. Compressed air hose works just fine; I think I got the red stuff at Lowes too. Lowes seems to have a better selection of hose than Home Depot. You can get Synflex from Riva too, if you want to wait for it to get shipped in.

    Thanks, I think I will use the air hose as well.
