HOSER™ AH111 OPERATOR’S MANUAL Last Updated 1/8/2013 HOSER™ Hose Washing Tool Operator’s Manual The Hoser is designed to quickly clean 1‐1/2” or 2” vacuum hoses with vinyl cuffs or Flash Cuffs. The Hoser can be used with truck mounted or portable extractors with solution pressure up to 1000psi and can safely handle the high temperatures produced by truck mounted extractors to get the dirtiest vacuum hoses clean. OPERATION: 1. Connect the solution hose from your truckmount or portable extractor to the male quick connect on the Hoser. It is recommended that the solution hose be equipped with a ball valve so the operator can easily adjust the flow or turn the water flow on and off as needed during use. 2. Connect a vacuum hose from your truckmount or portable extractor to the 2” barb on the Hoser. 3. Insert the end of the vacuum hose to be cleaned into the end of the Hose closest to the solution quick connect. If desired, the vacuum hose to be cleaned can be pre‐treated with a sanitizer, a degreaser or other pre‐spray prior to insertion into the Hoser. 4. Turn on the truckmount or portable extractor, adjust the solution pressure (1000psi maximum) and chemical feed as needed. With the vacuum on, turn the solution on to start the spray inside the Hoser, while holding the Hoser in one hand, slowly pull the vacuum hose through the Hoser to clean the hose. HOSER™ AH111 OPERATOR’S MANUAL When the cleaning has been completed, turn off the solution flow first and leave the vacuum on for a short time to remove excess water from the Hoser before disconnecting hoses. 5. Shake excess water out from inside of Hoser. Snap an open female quick connect onto the male quick connect of the Hoser to drain remaining water from the spray bar assembly. Wipe Hoser surface to clean and dry and then store Hoser until next use. MAINTENANCE: The Hoser requires very little maintenance, however there are a few things you can do to maintain efficient operation and extend the life of your Hoser. Periodically clean strainer screen (NA0803) located in the Strainer Body and strainer adapter between the Male quick connect and spray bar. Replace strainer screen if torn. STRAINER BODY MALE QUICK CONNECT STRAINER ADAPTER STRAINER SCREEN NA0802 AH102B NA0804 NA0803 To prevent hard water or chemical deposits from plugging the small spray openings on the jet spray bar assembly, periodically run a mild acid or non‐acid descaling solution through the Hoser and then flush with clean water to remove deposits from the jet spray bar. Snap an open female quick connect onto the male quick connect of the Hoser to drain remaining water from the spray bar assembly.
