Connected to a dishwasher that heats water to barely hot; the hose collapsed. Save your money

Rated 1 out of 5Â by xkcd Poor quality:
I purchased this at my local Home Depot to extend the hose for a dishwasher because there were no local suppliers for the manufacturer's extension kit. This was a mistake.
As other reviewers have noted, the hose is made of soft material that crimps and collapses. In my case -- the installation was nothing extraordinary -- the hose extension had to rise from the bottom of the cabinet through a guide-loop and into the disposal. After about the second time the dishwasher was run, the hose developed kinks at the guide and at the connection to the disposal. I could, with effort get the hose to open at the disposal connection, but I could not get the hose back into form at the other location.
In the end I ordered the manufacturer's hose extension kit, which is has worked fine.
I recommend avoiding this product. It may work with installations with no significant turns, but most installs will probably have some. There are better options.
That said, I did not have any problems with the connections leaking, as mentioned by another reviewer. In my experience, the weak point with this product was its tendency to collapse, not the connections.

Leaky, collapsible piece of junk. I can't believe this is the only drain hose Home Depot carries in store. Buy something else or be sure to get a mop as well.

Connected to Bosch dishwasher. The dishwasher heats water to 120 deg. F. This hose failed and compressed with the hot water.

"Universal" isn't quite "universal". Poor construction - flimsy. Clamps are too large for smallest diameter (5/8ths) and collapses the hose and leaves gaps for water to escape. And.....won't fit Maytag dishwasher. Just order an OEM replacement. Home Depot should drop this hose supplier...
