The hoses of the Lomo tanks often become brittle over time or have kinks that remain. Unfortunately, the hoses of all Lomo tanks do not have a standard measure, so replacement is often unsatisfactory. Although 0.5″ garden hoses can somehow be made attached to the smaller tanks, those are far too stiff and make a controlled outpouring of chemistry difficult.
A few years ago, Ricardo Leite from Portugal had exactly suitable hoses made with exactly the right bending behavior at a hose manufacturer, for which extra custom molds were made. I bought a few meters of these hoses at the time and can therefore help out if someone needs a new hose.
The hose for the 50ft/15m Lomo tank is 65cm (25″) long, the one for the large “Lomo Pro 30/100ft at once” tank, measures 75cm (30″). If you need a hose, please contact me. Cost is €10 per hose, excluding shipping. from Germany.
