Anybody know where to get bulk scuba hose and fittings? Is there a serious difference between "real" scuba hose and fittings (48 bucks for seven feet) and the stuff you get at the hardware store (30 cents a foot plus fittings)? This would be strictly for air use, not EAN or high percentage O2 gas. What about the high pressure SPG hose? Any ideas?

thanks,
e.a.e.

A friend of mine was looking into buying some air compressor hose to build his own SNUBA system. We did some research and there is a standard (can't remember the name of it anymore) for breathing hoses.

There's a website "Mar-vel" is the company (I think) where you can get bulk hosing for cheaper than the price you quoted.

I beleive the standard is the European EN-250, as marked on most hoses.

There's an American standard as well, just can't think of it. If you're building a snuba, let me know how it turns out!

For basic "hookah" type surface supply, there's an outfit in Las Vegas that I bought a pile from for 50 a foot, picked up a 300' coil for $150.

bummer... I looked up his website & it's closed down now. Boogers.

Mar-vel doesn't sell to just anyone. But scubatools does:

They have lp hose for $0.80/ft, and hp hose for $5/ft.

Im looking for a source that makes custom size hoses and hoses with angle fittings for a pony bottle. It didnt look like either of the above MADE the hose....just sold the parts.

Anyone know a place that makes custom hoses?
thanks

Scuba Tools web site states that their LP hose is for bench use not breathing? They put this statements in quotes which lead me to imply that people use it for regulators anyways. Is this acurate?

Scubatools mention on the site that they make custom hoses:
"To order HP & LP hose assemblies, use the part number listed below to indicate the type of hose being ordered. In addition to the type of hose, be sure to include the length of the hose and the two end fitting part numbers required to complete the assembly. Hose end fitting part numbers are listed below.
The cost of a hose assembly can be estimated by multiplying the length of the hose times the price per foot plus $10.00. The $10.00 charge includes two hose end fittings."

I would call or write them. The hp hose is rated for breathing interestingly enough.
