Hose held up an Ontario winter flooding a huge skating area. Only wish I had a nozzle of some sort on the end to hold (I know you don't want to shut off the flow with these pumps) but trying to hold it is like wrestling Mr wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube man. You can also crank down the clamps quite a lot. First use was tricky because I didn't tighten down the clamps enough. One last thing, the large black washer goes into the metal flange (picture attached). I take off the big green hose after each use and make sure to take that washer and place it under the fuel cap so it doesn't go missing.

The 20' intake hose was the main reason I ordered this. The quality is not as good as some cheaper sets I have bought, however an upside to that is that the intake hose is more flexible which makes it quite a LOT easier to manipulate. That is the only reason why I chose to keep it, but a good reason as most other intake hoses are too stiff to work with.
