Hi Soraya and Thomas,
The hoses are rated for 5,000 psi. They need to be stainless steel braid. Most hydraulic shops will have them. You will want food quality hoses. We are in Tahiti and plan to replace ours here. We have found online several places but due to restrictions, we haven’t been there yet. We had a failure in one of the fittings, the nut cracked. Epoxy putty has solved the problem, short-term.
I have attached the instructions for the fittings (thanks Eric).
With best regards,

We are looking for the specs (type, inner/outer size, max pressure etc) of the high pressure hose HP between the HP pump and the 'pressostat' (pressure regulator?).
We have checked online, the dessalator website only shows the fittings without the HP hose, and the company is currently closed due to COVID.
We have the stainless steel fittings that can be reused, and are running Dessalator DUO 100.
Has anyone gone through the exercise of sourcing the HP hose and reusing their own fittings? Any recommendations appreciated.
Thanks for your help
