    Miflex Hi Pressure replacement

    Two weeks ago my 15cm Miflex hose burst when carrying out a pre dive check (I know I know Marmite)

    It was the original hose with metal ferrule"s and no rubber covers.

    Sent it back to Miflex with mentioning "fit for purpose". Replacement received within five days, the new thicker and more robust hose.

    Well done Miflex, discovered customer service after years of denial that there was anything wrong with their product.

    reminds me of the AP cells situation. nice to have them replaced but better to have something that never goes wrong.

    No, it was the thinner ones. I never bothered with the new thicker ones as they were nearly the same as a normal hose.

    It was Graham Smith
    He has a new job which seems to have taken over his life at the moment, only dived with him once this year.
    Sad as he was really enthusiastic, hope he gets back into it when his job becomes less demanding

    Got a replacement HP hose, not as thick as the standard rubber hoses. I like the flexability, personal choice I guess.
    Good job Graham S is not posting Less stick till he reads this
