    2x 50ft hose vs 100ft hose

    Hey guys. So for being mobile I'm in between buying 1 100 ft hose vs 2 50 ft hoses with a good connector. That way if I k ly need 50 I don't need the extra 50 to mess with?

    Thoughts

    Seems like a reasonable idea to me.

    How about one 50ft hose and two 25ft hoses? That will give you even more options.

    I like to use a 50ft with a 3 way plug on the end, then you can add more lines if you need to.

    Not a bad idea but trying to keep it simple. Don't want a bunch of hoses either. Figure 50 and 50 is a solid combo......if I was to have a third I'd probably get a 50 ft coil hose for those 20-30 f6 jobs

    Advice.....still looking for more input on what mobile detailed are actually using more than suggested ideas.

    Thanks

    A hose reel with 100' of hose would be my choice.

    Why? Do you use this currently?

    Guys please...Explain why you'd choose your choices and the experiences you've had to warrant the choice. Anyone can throw their hat in the circle....there is a reason why some hats get picked last

    One hose and neatly coiled. You can kick my hat out of the circle if you choose too.

    Haha thanks for the feedback. Just trying to make a point to all. That type of feedback helps.

    Thanks for your input dude

    I'm basically mobile only and just carry two 50' ones with me.

    I used to bring a 50' and a 100', but I rarely used the 100' one and it's a bigger pain to deal with.

    The 50' ones just make life easier IMO.

    Edit: But a hose reel would be nice too for something longer like a 100'er.
