Re: Calling all crapper experts

Trident 101 is considered the best value in a durable hose, but if you want something that will bend, you can't beat Raritan Saniflex (bend radius about 7"). It is also MUCH easier on and off the fittings, but will not leak. The permeation resistance is quite good, better than the white hose.

That said, any hose will kink if you force it. If it looks like it is starting to pin, insert a PVC fitting.
