An air hose is basically an inexpensive equipment used to send air into a certain product, like an air compressor or air tool. Most of us would probably think that air compressors need an air hose, too, but actually, they do not. It simply connects to an air tank to an air supply and then it supplies air to the compressor. The air hose simply goes over the entire length of the tank and sends the air in a controlled fashion into the air compressor. However, it is essential that one uses proper air hose that is made of a durable material to ensure the safety of an air compressor and the air tool itself.
Now, if you are looking for the best type of air hose, there are two main categories to choose from. These are flexible and rigid. If you plan on using your air hose for long distances, you should go with a rigid type because it has a wider application area. On the other hand, if you are going to use it for short distances, then it is important that you get a flexible air hose because it allows you to use it where you need it most.
There are many advantages of using PVC air hoses, although there are also some disadvantages. First, they are more expensive than the flexible ones and are not portable. Also, they are more prone to breaking especially if they are made from thin materials. Also, they are not able to withstand extreme weather conditions. If you intend on using this gear outside, it is advisable that you get a flexible hose so that it can last through the whole season and still maintain its good quality.
