Vacuum Hose Question1/5
Does the diameter or length of the vacuum hose affect its performance? I have a 5hp becker with a 2 1/4 hose with about 8 feet length of hose.
Thanks for your help
Yes. It will affect how fast you pull the vacuum and the cfm that it will pull.
You are likely OK with what you have though.
I have a 5hp Becker as well and have it remotely located. About 80' of 2" pvc with no problems.
My pumps sit outside, well over 100 feet away connected to 3 machines with pvc pipe. Works like a champ.
