    I'm going to need to run some flexible hose to carry hot water from my utility room sink to kitchen sink. Can I use two washing machine inlet hoses coupled together instead of Speedfit flexible hose? Would be a lot cheaper but wonder of there are any good reasons why not.

    Thanks in advance,

    Ade

    Thanks. Clever sod aren't you? Only a question wasn't it? Perhaps instead of being a smart arse you could tell me why it's not a good idea.

    Thankyou. Very sound advice, which I will now take on board - and buy the pucka gear. Much appreciated.
