Re: Water maker hose in the Bahamas

Patrick,

Just make sure that the hydraulic hoses they use are not reinforced with any form of steel mesh. Many have a blue hose that is rated for high pressure and they can reuse your JIC fittings. They are expensive.

If they are steel reinforced the steel will rust and really mess up your watermaker.

Patrick,

Ask the local contractors or county officials where they get their tractors, bulldozers fixed. Any machine with hydraulics or large compressors must change their high pressure hoses on a regular basis. Believe me, they don't send the hoses back to the manufacturers. Small shops have the right fittings, the hoses and the small machine required to fit the hardware to the hose.
