Same stuff but there's a place not far away that manufactures it. I bought 1/2" and 3/8" hoses for draining and siphoning off. I also bought some 1 1/4" for something else. I have had them for Donkeys Years now. They have got shorter by 2" every so often as I sometimes cut bits off when the ends split. I use those hoses because I can see through them and they seldom kink. There you go, an in depth report on the hoses used by Last Plumber on a day to day basis.
