Re: My home made power tank
I have cracked the cheap Nylon hose coil hose in the past.
The better grade of Polyurethane coiled hose works very well.
Make sure you have extra connectors to repair the hose in your tool box, nothing worse than having a good air supply and no way to get it to your tires or tools.
Also it is a good idea to make an adapter from whatever quick connect you are running (Commercial or automotive) to the other one. In other words, if you are running a commercial style quick connect, use a commercial style insert, with an automotive style quick connect on the end. That way if your hose breaks, or if someone else needs to use your tank with their hose, you can just insert the adapter and your good to go. Its cheap and handy to have.
