    Gaunt hose find..

    Well, we all know about the hoses for gauntlets...
    Cool detail but the ones I got with my MOW set is a bit to stiff for my liking.
    I've looked high and low for a hose I could buy off the shelf... no luck till now.

    I my wife wanted me to replace the shower head with a new multifuction head and our old head had a hose that is similar to my gaunt hose.
    so I kept it.. but in my haste I thru out the rest of it BUT My bro has the same shower head in his guest bath room.... I may have to "upgrade" his fixture....

    on to pics
    Left is the stiff MOW and Right is shower head hose.


    ....ooooh so flaccid


    I'll post the make/type later, for those that may want to do a search... keep in mind I think it is an old 80's make. a thrift store may have one??

    Being at the bottom of the world (NZ), gives me restrictions on what I can find ( I would call it a lack of variety and a lot of stuff not being imported down here )...
    In saying that, I've always been able to find the braided hose at my local Para Rubber store ( I think it maybe only a NZ store ). And now ( just before reading this post ) I had gone out and purchased 3 meters from my local mega hardware store ( Bunnings ).....

    I have to say I REALLY like the look of your flexible shower hose. I myself am not a fan of stiff hoses

    Anyways... to my question.

    Are you able to supply a photo of the original shower also. Just in case I do come across one down here I'll know it when I see it.

    Hmm... that's always been a pet peeve of mine. I hate the stiff gauntlet hoses and would love to replace with something like this!

    Great find! I had a troop this past Saturday in 27 degree weather. After a few minutes my hoses were so stiff I couldn't bend my arm LOL.

    Awesome. I wish I knew where to find some of that. My hoses are also very stiff. I don't even use them.

    You can get replacement hoses for a kitchen sink sprayer at Home Depot that look just like this and are as flexible as any hose you would use in the shower.
