    Ok, I just got my new transfer hose (links in above post). It is twice as stiff as I would like and not sure its going to work? I think it would work great as a static hose, to maybe run from pump to tank. I want to use this as a hose I un-roll and roll up with a 2700 gph Rule pump attached on one end. Anyone have very flexible food grade with good wear resistance/ toughness?

    Tigerflex hose is the best one out there. The WT series is food grade. You're going to pay for it but never heard anyone disappointed with it.

    We use mainline for moving some sap around. From the RO to the permeate or concentrate tank we have 1" blue mainline. For larger pipes (1.25" and above) we use grey or white schedule 40.
