Fire hoses?
« on: March 19, 2020, 04:33:03 »
I’ve been ordering parts on eBay for my old sets and doing pretty well.

But I haven’t found many fire hoses. Or the thinner flexible tubes used with the oxygen tanks for medical use.

I looked for a substitute and found those at the eBay link below. Any idea if they’d work? If so, which sizes should I buy?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

I've purchased similar products are they're just not as flexible as the original. I ended up using paracord as you can pull the center cords out and still use the fittings/adapters. Just won't hold water if you still want that option.

Have you tried buying them from Playmobil Direct Service?

I haven’t ordered from them yet. So many of the parts I need are vintage and most are discontinued. So shipping doesn’t pay. Also tough to do here in the US; I’ve seen so many people post about this. Just today I found a link to Playmobil Parts Service- but except for selecting a language it was completely blank! 😆 I’ll keep checking...
