Default Need a source for Galva-Lift 1" ID hose

I need to replace the tank supply hoses on my Galva-Lift. Does anyone have a good source and/or specs for 1" double wall extra heavy duty hose? I need around 150'.

I bought mine from McMasterCarr. Plain general purpose EDPM hose. Just ain't got the Galva Lift writing on it. Best price I found.

Thanks, I saw that as well, but cannot tell if it is the same hose as what is on the lift. These hoses look like they are double thickness. I also found another source at a decent price, but once again cannot verify the hose thickness. I would hate to have a hose fail and drop the boat.

The hoses aren't under pressure, well maybe a couple of psi. Gotta remember there are holes under the tanks.

I replaced mine because they were rubbing the bottom of the dock and afraid it would rub through. The hose I bought was an exact same replacement, same thickness and makeup. Mine are a good 5yrs old and still in perfect condition. Galva Lift don't make hoses.

Thanks for the feedback. Mine have a few spots that are worn from contact with the lift, so I figured I would replace it before it's too late.
