Hi everyone,

I'm quite new to this business. It has been only 3 months and enjoys every minute of it. I brought my uncle van/truck mount as he retired after 20 years. All his piping is old school duct tape repairs. I want to know the best solution to fix

1. broken 1.5" hose - Can I just apply a 1.5" to 1.5" vinyl direct to the two ends? or I need 1.5 vinyl cuff to go on each end first?

2. broken 2" hose (attached together with duct tapes). same solution?

3. 2" house to 1.5" - I was thinking a flash cuff reducer 2" to 1.5" + male 2"

Also, the biggest question is how long should run each pipe because I apply a break/hose split. What do the experts do?

Thank you all in advance.

Ethan

Ethan I've attached two photos of female x female 1.5 x 1.5" coupling that will attach two broken hoses or simply extend a vacuum hose length. I've also attached two photos of a vacuum hose end that will attach to most floor tools. GL with your new business!

Goto local exhaust shop
Get some cutoffs of stainless pipe-doesn’t have to be stainless. Hopefully you’re earning enough to replace with new hose before mild steel exhaust pipe would rust through. Get what you can cheap and don’t pay too much
2in and 1.5in
Maybe 8in long
Can ask them to expand a section 1.5in pipe to 2in if they can
Use the pipe as internal sleeves/joiners and then repair with duct tape. Or you can make each repair a join too until you can afford new hose
You can tape solid one pipe in the end on each hose
Have a male end(pipe duct taped in)and a bare end(female) of hose on each section
That way you can add and subtract lengths of hose to minimise your hose lengths as you clean-this maximises you vacuum(shorter the hose run, stronger the vacuum)
