2. Hose matters! Our choice is Earl’s Pro-Lite 350. It is made in the United States with abrasion-resistant nylon sheathing banded to the textile inner braid that’s embedded in the synthetic rubber liner. This gives the hose incredible flexibility while still maintaining a pressure rating of 350 psi and an operating temperature range of -40 to +300 degrees F. On top of that, it’s super easy to assemble, about half the weight of stainless braided hose, and won’t constantly stab your fingers during assembly.
