Answer: 
This is a hose for a vacuum system, not a pressure hose to pump with. If you are looking to replace a hose from an existing shop vacuum. I'd replace the hose with the same size. Longer hoses can be connected if needed. If you are looking for a hose for a fixed (central vacuum system) I would not go this large, It's very hard to route and store when not in use.

Answer: 
As a matter of fact the hose comes in the package with each end inserted into the the other end. This shows that it will extend the same hose and add to the length.

Answer: 
Adapting to the inlet of the vacuum can be an issue, but can be accomplished with PVC fittings and rubber plumbing adapters connectors. Measure the inlet and go to a hardware store to see what might work. I would generally replace with the same size hose, bigger hose are less flexible and heavier and you have to adapt at the accessory end of the hose to fit your tools.

Answer: 
I’m not sure which extension hose you are referring to since there’s no part number specified. But if you are looking for an extension hose for the 3-gallon vac, you could get the same 7-foot super flex hose (831327 part number). You can special order it at Home Depot stores, or over the phone at 1-800-474-3443 options 1, 3 and 1 or on-line at www.ridgidparts.com using this link Read More

Answer: 
This is the part of the kit that allows you to attach the hose to the vacuum so that it does not pull out when you pull on the hose while doing a floor or something. Hence, the tug-a-long in the name.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NEEDED INFORMATION!!~! I have the 16 gallon shop vac, and in the manual it states that this is the replacement hose. What it did not say, that I would need a 2.5 inch adapter. YES THE HOSE WORKS, BUT ONLY IF YOU HAVE BOUGHT THE ADAPTER WHICH COMES SEPARATE. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I have 4 of the 12 gal 5 hp and a little 4 gallon ones, and 5 cats. These are the best and perfect tool i own. A similar product ceased to function and was repairable when I needed to clean the basement after the cats. On a fluke I was at Home Depot at 6 a.m. to pick up a new Ridgid 12 gal 5 hp vac exactly like the others I have because I needed one for the basement. I did not notice the weather outside, and it was a hard and steady rain. and the store was full of people looking for pumps for their basements. I found the last 12 gal vac in the store, purchased it and left. I made a detour to my friends house and his basement was flooding and he had no way to take care of the situation. I got the 12 gal wet/vac which assembled in seconds, put on the wet floor attachment and went to work. In about 15 min we had the situation under control, throwing countless gallons out into the back yard. the damage was minimal, and we easily kept up with the rest of the water seeping in. We got 9 inches of rain that day. And just because of a broken vacuum and a new one on a whim, we were able to save his basement. THAT IS RIDGID DEPENDABILITY... August 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool to help vacume Easy to use and connect. Staff very helpful and friendly June 7, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Accessory Documentation poor Vacuum is excellent, but comes with only one tool. There is no documentation on the box what size hose comes with the tool. Additional accessories come in a few sizes and the stores I went to had these all mixed up in the bins they were supposed to be in. Took multiple trips to store to fully equip the unit with all necessary accessories.The manual does not specify the hose diameter either. Additional extension tubes which come with most other vacs are not included. Total cost to outfit this tool is greater than their more powerful vacs which come with many more accessores standard. Seems a lot to pay for a portable in light of above. June 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sturdy... over priced but needed more hose and this was in stock April 12, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Quality material but stiff and unforgiving I purchased this hose as a replacement for my small wet/dry vac who's hose had gotten lost. The hose is made from quality materials and has lasted me over 2 years now. however, it is very rigid and stiff and unforgiving. It does the job but I find myself having to accommodate the way the hose wants to go rather than me dictating how and where the hose needs to go. December 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A worthwhile purchase. I bought this hose to retro fit into an older version of a shop vac to vacuum out some heating ducts. It worked very well, and I'm hoping it will last as long as my shop vac has. I am concerned about the environment, and I'm tired of throwing away plastic items that can't be recycled, and do not degrade because they are petroleum products, into landfills. January 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice product Very nice product works very well will buy again thanks December 8, 2015
