Answer This Question

A:  Hi Ken, Thanks for your question. A clamp is not included with this backwash hose, but you may want to use one for a secure fit.

by|Jun 8, 2020

    A:  No. Just use the hose clamp on your discharge hose, or buy one at HD or a local automotive store.

          Q:Can this hose work with below-ground pool and pressure of 20 PSI on Quad 80 DE filter?
          by|Dec 7, 2018
          6 Answers
          Answer This Question

          A:  No- the hose is flexible and would crush under the weight of the dirt.

          1 found this answer helpful

          A:  Thanks for asking! This backwash hose is made from 18 gauge (0.45 mm) weather and chemical resistant extruded vinyl, and will hold up to most typical backwash applications. 20 PSI should not pose a problem with this backwash hose.

          by|Dec 8, 2018

            A:  I would doubt it, the clamps will not hold on the tube from the filter, I turned pump speed down to 650rpm and it worked fine but sprung a small leak that i hope i can patch

            by|Feb 5, 2019

            A:  On the drain / backwash side only. Check my pic.

                            This is a typical backwash hose. It works great...it is a pretty standard backwash hose for your swimming pool. It looks, except for the packaging, exactly like the one we purchased from the swimming pool supply store, which was much more expensive. I would expect this to last about two to three swimming seasons just like the last one. These come in several diameters, so just make sure you order the correct size for your outlet.

                            The HDX two-inch backwash hose is a quality product and at almost .50 millimeters thick, it is very heavy duty too. I use the backwash hose on an external pool pump to vacuum extremely dirty pools, so it gets a lot of use. I typically get no more than two seasons out of a regular backwash hose but I’m expecting the HDX backwash hose to last significantly longer than two seasons. So far, I am very pleased with this backwash hose.

                            The 50 ft backwash hose was used on my pool filter and on a pool cover pump. A nice feature of these hoses is they can be cut to multiple different sizes and all ends are useable. Another pro is they can be wound up and easily stored neatly out of sight without having to unclamp it. This hose kinks up easily when twisted and tail end is all over the place with high pressure. I prefer a vinyl hose because of the difficulty of this hose to stay fixed to wear I put it so the water can be drained to where I want it to go.

                            We have had the same backwash hose for over twenty years and it had so many pinholes you could take a shower while backwashing the pool, so I am thrilled that we now have a new hose that appears to be of a better quality than our first one that came free with the pool setup. This one is a lot thicker and I believe it will last the rest of my life, unfortunately it’s now in the dead of winter so I can’t really try it out!

                            My old backwash needed replacement after a long time of usage. This HDX backwash hose is made with good quality vinyl which is ideal for the super hot Florida weather and the harsh sun. The hose is 50 ft long which is enough to run the hose to street level near to the drain. With the summer rains and hurricane storms, I have to drain my pool at least a few times each season. The 2 inch diameter is ideal for the standard pipes and fits snugly on the backwash pipe with help of a clamp. The hose rolls neatly during storage and easy to expand just before turning the pump to backwash mode.

                            The HDX 50ft. x 2 in Swimming Pool Backwash Hose is as expected….it is a backwash hose. It looked to be okay. I attached it, I used a clamp to secure it in place. I had rolled out the hose on the level so it had no kinks and slowly opened the valve. I have to say I was a bit hesitant as it feels much thinner than the last one I had. Everything worked according to plan. I do think this is a hose you will have to treat a bit gentler as it feels thin. I read other reviews that say they busted it on the first use. I would suggest a bit slower release of the water so the hose has time to fill before a sudden gush of water.

                            Very good 50 foot vinyl backwash hose. Could be used for many other things such as with a water pump. Fits snug around my backwash out spout. The 50 feet is great to get the water away from my pool and house. Storing the hose is a little annoying cause of the size but it lays flat so you can roll it up. The hose is made of durable vinyl so should last many years.

                            This 50 foot discharge hose works great for all kinds of applications, waste water, submersible pump, or swimming pool discharge. with just a hose clamp and a screwdriver you are hooked up and ready to go. Fully collapsible for easy storage. Very strong not much effort to keep from kinking. It is not for suction use. Full 2 inch can move a lot of water very fast.

                            Owning a swimming pool is an investment in time, upkeep, and a lot of fun to use. However, back washing a pool filter is mundane task that must be done regularly. A quality backwash hose is a must, or else the water pressure splits the hose and now water is everywhere except where you want it to go. I have used the HDX 50-foot by 2-inch swimming pool backwash hose previously and impressed with the longevity of the hose. When offered, I jumped at the chance to receive another hose since my off-brand hose already has several leaks. It is a tight fit to slide over a two-inch PVC pipe so before installing this hose, I ran hot water over it for several minutes to help it stretch. Once installed, it performed flawlessly.

                            Anyone who has owned a pool knows the beating that the backwash hose takes and how often it needs to be replaced; it seems like I'm replacing mine every summer. So, when I saw the HDX 50 ft. x 2 in. Swimming Pool Backwash Hose available at The Home Depot, I grabbed it. Unfortunately, it's winter so I can't install yet just yet. However, the quality of the hose seems to be right in line with just about every other backwash hose I've ever used. So I expect that it will last about a summer and need replacing.
