I know it's not electrical, but I there are some good technical brains here!

For a prope.rty to be let out, I need to provide an extension hose to pass behind the built in dishwasher to a space for a tenant provided washing machine.

Bought a 1.5m extension hose from Amazon, but am not impressed with its rating.

It is marked, "P.E. 20/60 TEMP. 25 deg C MAX MADE IN ITALY / 2017"

I emailed the UK Distributer to ask for the pressure rating. Their reply, "20-60 bar is the pressure. As it is a cold hose there is no temperature rating."

I cannot believe that this soft grey hose is capable of 60 bar. That is 900 p.s.i. in round figures. Not far off what my pressure washer is capable of.

Am I being over cautious? Our water pressure is 5 bar.

I can get a better looking one, albeit with a right-angled end when I would prefer straight, from eBay which has an overall stainless steel braid.

Cheers!

Clive
