Hide-A-Hose Rapid-Flex Hoses do not require a sock to be used with the HAH retractable valve. Hose end attaches to any HAH handle or adapter.
INSTALLATION NOTE: Hide-A-Hose now recommends an additional 20% of pipe (up to 10 feet) beyond the length of the
hose to accommodate the stretching of the hose. This will protect against the hose obstructing the trunk line or getting stuck in any standard fittings. For new construction homes add 10 more feet of pipe than the intended hose length. For homes upgrading to Rapid Flex Hoses please control how fast the hose retracts, minimizing the stretching or, if possible, use a shorter hose.
Hide-A-Hose Inc offers a manufacturer warranty for up to 5 years on their products. More information regarding the specifics of their policy is available on the Hide-A-Hose website at the following link: Hide-A-Hose Warranty
