# CFM thru 3/8" hose.

I have been searching but can't find the answer to this.

I am looking at a bigger compressor for the upcoming blowout season. My present compressor puts out 17 CFM and I have been using 3/8 " hose. I have the larger fittings for this hose to avoid restriction. Hose has worked well for me...This is the biggest hose I want to drag around. (Lets' not go into that here.)

I found one site that stated 20 cfm is no problem for 3/8" hose. The compressor I am looking at is at 30 CFM. But I don't want to invest in a bigger compressor if it means I need to start using bigger hose.

Thanks for the opines.
