Replacing a damaged Pressure Wash Hose Assembly

At Hoses Direct, we offer all types of hose assemblies, which includes jet wash / pressure wash hose assemblies, both for domestic and industrial use,  hot and cold water. We use Italian Hose and Fittings, these are not a Chinese Import Item.

Prices start at around £30.00 depending on the length and fittings required. If you have a low end domestic unit, it is sometimes more economical to replace the machine. If you are interest in replacing your hose then a range of the the shelf items can be seen here


We also do bespoke hose assemblies with lengths up to 100mtrs, hot and cold wash, steam wash hoses, non marking wash down hoses, and all other high pressure cleaning hose assemblies, so please get in touch with your requirements,

Hose Type

First thing to do is check what type of hose you have, these are usually one wire or two wire hoses, and it should be marked on the side of the hose with the pressure rating. Typically available in blue or black
