    3/4 garden hose works fine with the pressure dialed down. I have two 100'ers on the with anothe 100 in the truck if I need it.

    Don't listen to the dweebs, 1" hose is the way. With a remote and q.c. valves, we can be in and out of one of our 90 zoners in a hour or so. Planning is the answer for winterizing. ;)

    Is this question authorized outside of the 2011 blow out thread?

    An industrial supply house can make you a compressor hose of any length with the proper fittings. Anyone who uses garden hose is not even worth commenting about. :dizzy:

    Some garden hose is as strong as air hose - I might not want to run 300 degree air through it, though.
