First Use Tips! For easy use, follow these FlexLite Leader Hose Instructions… Ray Padula Flexlite leader hose
    • Make sure the washer is firmly in place inside the female coupling, and then attach the female end of the hose to the faucet. The washer must be firmly in place before attaching to the faucet to prevent leaks.

    • Uncoil and straighten your hose to full length.

    • Attach the other end of your hose to your hose storage unit. NOTE: This hose has two female threaded ends, for use with MALE inlet threaded hose storage. Be sure to check which type of threads your storage unit has prior to use.

FlexLite Hose Care & Use Tips Follow these tips to extend the life of your Ray Padula FlexLite hose…
    • Never leave your hose pressurized while un-attended.

    • Remove your hose from the faucet, completely drain of water, and store indoors before and during freezing weather.

    • To ensure a leak-free operation, be sure the washer is firmly in place inside the female coupling. If you notice wear or tear on the washer, it can be removed and replaced for a leak free seal every time.

    • Keep your hose in the shade whenever possible, especially in hot summer months. Water left in your hose in direct sunlight has the potential to expand, potentially damaging the hose.

    • Never use your FlexLite hose with hot water.

    • Did you know there’s one simple step you can take throughout the season to ensure a leak-free seal every time you use your hose? By disconnecting and re-connecting your FlexLite hose from any metal faucet or hose accessory, such as a nozzle, at least 3-4 times per year allows the washer to retain a proper seal. This also allows for loosening of any possible corrosion that may have formed from various weather and outdoor elements which can sometimes cause the hose to fuse to the faucet or hose attachments.
