Uni-Flex hoses

Publish date:

SeaTech says it has upgraded its Uni-Flex hoses with improved end fittings. "These hoses could be used anywhere on the boat to deliver fresh water," national sales manager Jamie MacDonald says. "The quick-connect ends can be male or female."


The hose ends enable the installer to eliminate unnecessary fittings and to save time, especially in hard-to-reach areas or long runs, MacDonald says. The ends are now made of Acudel, a polymer that's less brittle and will last longer than its predecessor, MacDonald says. All SeaTech hoses will have this type of improved end, and the company is now using an improved crimping process. "We listened to our OEM builders to develop this product, and we thank them for their input," SeaTech engineer Andy Rodenberg says. The hoses are priced from $1.50 to $2.50 a foot.
