A hose is a piece of equipment used to transport materials from one place to another. Although common household hoses transport water from your water supply to a faucet or garden, other types of hoses transport gases and even compressed air.
Around you house, you might find hoses attached to an outdoor spigot, your washing machine and the plumbing in your kitchen and bathroom. Since these hoses transport safe materials, they are often made of thin rubber.
Industrial hoses are used to aid the flow of various materials. These materials can be hazardous chemicals used in farming or gas that flows from tanker trucks to gas station reserves. Depending on the toxicity of the substance, the hoses used in these instances can be made of very durable and nonpliable materials. This thick construction ensures that no dangerous kinks occur, causing a potentially dangerous backup.
Air hoses help power a variety of tools. Power washers and many power tools utilize pressurized air from hoses. When you fill your tires at a service station, air flows through a thin hose to create intense pressure that fills your tire.
