Never permit even a drop of gasoline to touch Hose As it works in through the outer fabric am destroys the rubber lining. This applies to washing Hose with gasoline to remove grease. Better leave the grease there or. Cox said than Wash it off with gasoline. If Hose becomes Frozen in ice. Do not pull on the Hose to loosen it but chop away the ice from the Hose and take it All inside to let the ice thaw before handling the Hose further. A do not permit Hose to become hot from closeness to a stove or Heater of any kind As the rubber will at once deteriorate.
