I am needing a hose to connect to my stenner chlorine tank. It needs to be 1 1/4" ID. Does anyone know where I can find something that size that will work with chlorine? All I could find at HomeDepot is Vinyl. Wasnt sure if that would work.

I would suggest calling these two companies- they both have excellent records for finding the unusual pool part-

The vinyl will work but what type of connection do you need to make that requires 1.25" hose??

I am installing a 55 gallon drum under my house and will have a fill cap on the outside (kind of like houses with oil tanks under the house). This will just be a convenience thing for me so I do not have to cart the full barrel around the house, I will be able to back up and fill the tank without unloading it. The 1 1/4" is the size of the fill spout and the connection on my drum. I will also be attaching a 1/2" pipe to vent to the exterior in case the barrel ever becomes pressurized although I never see that happening.

I gotcha' now, Thanks. You may get some slow deterioration of that vinyl (brittleness) but you'll be able to see it slowly happening and can replace it if it does. There4 are some high grade hoses you can get but I wouldn't pay for them.

I did find some Spa hose thats 1 1/4" ID. It was at HomeDepot but it didnt say what it was made of. It's the white pipe. I was twice the price of the clear but still only $5 per foot. I only need 5 feet. Would that be a better option?

I don't know what it is.

Most plastics will work, I think, but you will have to observe them as I think some can turn brittle.

It looked like the flex hose that connects my booster to my PVC, only bigger. I will have to dig around and see what material it actually is.
