Hi I have a question about reducing my 2in. Water pump to 1.5 inch what's wrong with reducing it at the high banker I just ordered the piglet and have 25 feet of 2in. Hose and don't want to have to buy another section of hose if I can just reduce it at the piglet what happens when I reduce it at the piglet do I end up with to much water pressure my hose is red layflat hose good up to 150psi

It should not be any problem .I don't know if the piglet has a valve on it or not .I would do it that way ,then u you adjust the water that way .And no you should not hurt the hose .That is the way I have my highbanker set up.

If you are using a slurry, or semi-slurry pump, there shouldn't be a problem. They only build pressure to about 40psi. Just idle it down some. If you are using a high pressure pump (used mainly for dredges) you could have a problem, as they can go up to 150psi.

Here is another thread that talks about that. This should have some good help. There was an article on here from Gold Hog I thought that had an extended discussion about that as well, but I couldn't find it.

Ok thanks but the kanaflex hose they are talking about the highest pressure rating I found was less than 100psi and I was just told I could have a problem with my 150psi hose

The problem with the high pressure lay flat hose is if you use a pressure pump and the hose has a kink in it, it will bust. I had the same hose and used with my northern tool 2 inch pressure pump (94 PSI) and did not notice the hose was kinked. It blew apart within seconds.
I now only use kanaflex or dynaflex hoses.
