Thank you for your replies.

The original hose was made by IVG, looking at the spec of their nearest current hose the bend radii is 130mm. The ASAP hose bending radii is I believe 320mm, I know it is pretty inflexible as I fought to install some between the water intake and the pump, however, it is rated to 125degC.

The best hose I can find is Vetus with a bend radii of 48mm, it wire wound and rated up 100degC. I see that Lancing deal in Vetus parts so will call them, thanks for the suggestion.

The only reason to change this hose is a persistant weep from the heat exchanger spigot and both ends rusting at both ends of the hose.

Regards, Alasdair
