The Versatility Continues
There are many benefits to both style hoses and some features may work better for you than others.
The stretch hose has the convenience of being compact, stretching from 8' to 40'. This ability to stretch however does cause a slight pull back effect as it is being used. Also the spring that allows the hose to stretch causes the inside of the hose to be ribbed reducing the air flow slightly giving you a little less suction. If you require more suction we recommend the Crush Proof Central Vacuum Hose Kit, which uses the 30' crush proof central vacuum hose.
