Cannula Hose Kinking

Does anyone have suggestion on how to stop my 25ft hose from kinking. Is there any kind hose you can buy that won’t kink?

  1. I get several 9-foot lengths and hook them all together. Then I simply swivel each hose where they hook together and that helps a lot.

    1. Hi @Heuchera, and thanks for sharing the success you're having using several lengths of oxygen tubing to provide you the amount of hose you need to get around. Glad to hear this works well for you.

      Wishing you well,

  2. I appreciate your help & suggestions. I was wondering if any of you have used a a self coiling hose that stretches out and then coils back similar to the garden hoses. I saw them on utube and had some good & not so good reviews. It seems like they are heavier therefore the shorter ones work better. I still would like a solution to a self winding 25 ft hose.

    1. It's our pleasure Peter. If you do a GOOGLE search and use the words "coiling oxygen supply tubing", you'll find some interesting little videos. Let us know if you find this to be helpful.
      Warmly,
