Is the shields sanitation hose oil resistant? I want to use it for oil suction hose.
I have not used it for that purpose but it holds up real well for my toilet use ,it doesn't leak or have any smell to it. It could probably be used for that but I would research it a little more . By the way it has a thick wall hose
I doubt - it is designed for water.OK for sanitation and bilge etcSuggest you use USCG approved hose for diesel or GAS
I only used it for Sanitation holding tank, I do not know if oil resistant however they say can be used in bilge.It is smooth and rigid, I sealed it with goop as I did not like the way it did not snug down on the fittings, my feeling is it would be too rigid for a vacume line that you might want to bend and flex.the shield flex water exhaust hose my work better
I want to use this on a water pump. The pressure will bar around 70 pounds. Can this hose handle this kind of pressure?
for 1/2" or 3/4" dia, cold, I would guess no problem but I've never tried it
I would think so yes - heavy duty hose
CAN I GET A 50" ROLL OF 1 1/2 SANITATION HOSE?
The web site say it comes in 10' lengths, however, I ordered 30' and it came in one piece. Good luck
I'm sorry I meant 50 ft roll
not sure, that would be up to Jamestown distributors if they will cut it shorter than 10'
This is the basic sanitary hose that comes in a lot of boats. Nothing special like wire reinforcing etc but does a good job replacing old worn out leaking hose. Easy to work with just use a heat gun to warm it up and it slides right on fittings
I would buy again
Product is very good except the wrong item was shipped, wrong size hose, I had to send it back and reorder product and Jamestown would not send a return ticket and had to pay extra shipping costs.
This was way cheaper than at West Marine and it was the same exact tubing.
the only problem was the shipping cost, which I thought was high, especially since free shipping was advertised. Perhaps the box was oversized; I don't know the UPS or FEDEX regulations off hand. It was not heavy though

Durable, high quality, fair price @ JD
Superior to the typical bilge / sump pump hose, excellent product for many marine plumbing jobs
