What is the most durable hose available?

I have a Model # WD40700- I have purchased two hoses in the past year and they keep cracking. The most recent replacement hose I purchased was the Rigid Tug-a-long hose and it cracked within 3 months. Is there a more durable replacement hose I can buy so I don't have to purchase a new one every few months? Thank you
Asked by: Jules
Thank you for contacting RIDGID. There is a ProHose VT2570 that is 4 times more durable than the standard hose.

Can two sections of hose be added together ?

Need a longer vacuum hose length.Will this effect suction ?
Asked by: Fonzie
Thank you for contacting RIDGID. The maximum length of hose recommended for the vac is 25 feet. You would notice reduction in the suction power if you have longer hose than 25 feet. If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to call us at 1-800-4-RIDGID (1-800-474-3443) or you may send your email to info@ridgidvacs.com Regards, RIDGID

1-7/8 in. Utility Nozzle Accessory for RIDGID Wet Dry Shop Vacuums is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Ridgid vacuum works great with smaller attachments but this... The Ridgid vacuum works great with smaller attachments but this one does not provide much suction. I guess that's why they don't carry it in the store. Not very effective.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well on Hard Surface, not as well on Carpet I use this end to clean the floors of my garage. It works well on the hard surfaces but did not do so well cleaning the carpet of my car or the carpeting I have under my cars. Just depends on what you want to use the product for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why a utility nozzle to fit the unit I purchased... Why a utility nozzle to fit the unit I purchased at Home Depot was not "in stock" at Home Depot escapes me. I've learned vacuums are a mess with an uncontrolled variety of hose and attachment sizes. Next time, I will buy something that has a more available size than 1 7/8" 300 characters is too few
