new test kit

I Don't like the new hoses or their colors much stiffer and color change was unnessasary. YOU SHOULD HAVE OPTION TO GET ORIGINAL HOSES AND COLORS

Backflow Supply

Thanks for the review. Mid-West is aware of how much these hoses are disliked. They do plan on going back to the original material for the hoses, but they will still be the red, blue and yellow.

They need to bring back the old style hose.

First I would like to say that Backflow Supply has been top notch. That being said, the gauge is fine but the new poly type hoses are horrible!!! They are not pliable and are always coming loose from the backflow and the gauge when you move the gauge. Nothing like getting sprayed with water in the winter. I spoke to Mid West and they are aware of it and said they are working on a replacement. Hopefully at no cost.

John thanks for speaking to Mid-West about this and for the review. I appreciate an honest review much more than just a star rating so it benefits those researching the products.
