Wondering if anyone has a pirit heated water hose? I have had 2 in the last four years.I work away from home alot, went home for Christmas returned today to find the hose had failed and was frozen. I went to the local RV dealer and purchased the "the new and improved version". It has the sensor on the outside of the hose. unlike the old unit, so if your hook up is inside of a compartment the sensor is still out in the cold.I like the convenience of the hose. But if I have another failure im going back to pex and heat tape. Anyone have any problems with this hose?

Jeff -- You might want to try a pool toy called "water noodles". They come in different thicknesses, have a hole in the middle of the noodle that the water hose will fit into. I read about campers useing the noodle for winter camping. I don't know how cold it gets where you are, but if it is extremely cold you could use them in conjunction with the heated hose. Just a thought.

Jeff -- did you ever try the water noddles? That is no joke they insulate the water hose. Could be used in conjunction with heated water hose.

Tommy , The new and improved hose has worked so far, down to 8 degrees one night! Seems these hoses work well , they just dont last to long. If this one fails im going to buy a pex crimping tool and make my water line from pex when in cold weather. But I will still have to insulate the line and I will try the water noodles. Did you you use this method or did you see someone using it? Sounds like a good idea.

Jeff -- No I have not had to use this as I have not gone camping when the weather has been cold enough to try this idea. I read it on this forum some time ago, and just kept it in the back of my mind. I remember the person that posted it said it worked really well, but did not give a temperture as to when you would have to add some source of heat, I'm sorry to say.

I have used the "swim noodle" on my water hose many times. It works great!

Steve -- for my own information, do you remember how cold it was when you used the swin noodles or water noodles?

I had 3 days of 30 degrees, before it warmed up to 32. I know others that have use them all winter, but they also ran water all night long, when it was in the 20's.
