Kinky solution

hose coil helperThe hose I installed going to the well pump needed some help making it around the curve towards the water. The problem was a slight kinking in the hose as it angled downward, resulting in a decrease in water pressure.

The solution was a product called a kink-free flex hose adapter. It's basically a small section of hose with a heavy duty coil secured to the outside. I imagine a person could fabricate one by wrapping some heavy gauge trellis wire around the section of hose needing protection, but since I already had one of these I went for the easy fix.
