Do refer to installation guides, grounding requirements, and clamping procedures where static buildup may happen.

Do rinse and drain garage exhaust hoses after each use.

Do understand the PSI, fluid compatibility, and temperature limits of the hose, fittings and clamps.

Do store exhaust hoses in a cool, dark place to avoid kinking, humidity, weathering, etc.

Do use pressure relief valves to control pressure surges.

Do regularly inspect hoses for kinks, leaks, abrasions, and any holes or tears that may allow ambient air to enter the working environment.

Do frequently check fittings for signs of leakage, looseness, corrosion, etc.

Do allow the hose to twist and bend naturally during installation.


X Don't use exhaust hoses for long periods of time in applications where they can't be tested and inspected regularly.

X Don't let chemicals come in contact with garage exhaust hoses unless their material is designed to handle the conditions.

X Don't use an exhaust hose close to its maximum working pressure.

X Don't store hoses in direct sunlight, near heat, close to electrical equipment, motors, or any source of ozone

X Don't pull, tow, or tug on a hose and don't drag it over abrasive surfaces unless it's designed from material that can withstand conditions.

WARNING: Vehicle Exhaust is extremely dangerous and potentially deadly. We always recommend that any system be properly engineered to meet the specifications of your application. If you are using our Crushproof system, we recommend that you use it with a fan and as an intermittent repair solution only, not to be run for long periods of time. This hose is to be used only with naturally aspirated 4 cycle engines running at an idle and under no load. We recommend keeping any run of hose as short as possible preferably 11' or under and sized to include ambient air to cool the exhaust temperatures. This hose is designed to handle frequent temperatures up to 400° and intermittent temperatures to 600°. When using Crushproof hose for the first time, watch closely to verify that the exhaust is exiting the building as designed. IF YOU SEE ANY EXHAUST COMING BACK INTO THE SPACE, THE HOSE IS NOT BEING USED PROPERLY. TURN THE VEHICLE OFF IMMEDIATELY AND CALL OUR EXPERTS.
