I can't believe how fantastic this is!! My husband kept saying before hand, "It won't work, it can't possibly work"! But you know what, it does and it is absolutely amazing!! It is as powerful as from a hosepipe. We are totally amazed.......You will not be disappointed with this I am sure.

I have seen this item from various sellers, and after careful consideration, decided to purchase. There has been mixed media attention regarding this item and its compatability with the range of Karcher washers. I own a K2 series washer, and having seen this item on a TV shopping channel considered its purchase. Initially the TV shopping channel stated it works with all Karcher washers, then changed its mind and stated it only works with K3 seriesd and upwards. It then reverted back to its original advice and stated it worked with all Karcher pressure washers. On the Amazon website it states it includes use by K2 pressure washers, so I bought one. Yes it will work but I found it will not operate at its specified power output, more noticeable when using the Dirtblaster, with a very distinct reduction in power. When I used the detergent dispenser, my K2 series washer failed to provide any detergent whilst using this suction hose. From my experience, only purchase if you have a K3 series and above.

With hose pipe bans and the like, using the mains in mid summer is not PC. You can use this special hose, sunk into your water butts and attached to your jet wash, one can hose away without issue!
All those 'know it alls' who tell you over your fence that there is a ban in operation, can be quietly corrected when you show it is collected rainfall - wonderful to shut them up and show how 'green' you are too!!

I don't think this is terribly well designed. It's certainly made of decent quality materials as you'd expect from Karcher but it's not great in actual use. This is due to two challenges: firstly, keeping the free end of the hose close enough to the bottom of your bucket/container to keep it well below the surface of the water. It really needs to have a hefty weight attached to stop it waving around. The second issue is the need to ensure its adequately primed before attaching it to the washer. In my ignorance, I assumed that my K4 washer would happily suck up what water it needed but no, priming is essential to prevent the motor burning out. This means you'll have to the hose full of water, then keep it full during attachment to the washer at one end and placement/connection to the supply at the other. Not always easy. Additionally, the hose isn't particularly long so you'll need to have the washer pretty close to your water supply, meaning that you may then need to have an extension high pressure hose to reach your car. For me, this is just too much of a pain in the neck and I can't see me using it much. I'd suggest that if possible you're much better off drawing water either from the mains supply or using an ordinary hose attached to a water butt tap, though in this case you'll probably need to add a filter to block impurities (another £15 or so, I believe.)

Kärcher 4.440-238 Suction Hose with Check Valve 3 m

What no-one has mentioned is the potential this has to turn your pressure washer into an emergency pump.
If it can suck water from a bucket, a water barrel or a pond it can suck it from other places too......

If you need to drain a cistern to replace the inlet valve - Karcher it instead of flooding the floor removing the valve from a modern bottom inlet cistern.

Blocked sink that needs emptying before you can clean the trap? Karcher it.

C**p plumber did a c**p job on replumbing older daughter's flat. She came home to find it ankle deep in water.
This hose would have saved a lot of work as she could have pumped much of the water away.

I thought it worth buying for the "toolbox" in case it is needed.

I plugged into my karcher washer which pumped for about 10 seconds and then cut out!! It didn't look like this hose was sucking much water from the bucket of water??! I phoned Karcher and they said that I shouldn't use an electric extension cable with my pressure washer, what`s that all about, I`ve always used an extension cable!! So, in essence, this thing in my opinion has broken my pressure washer. Haven`t taken it to get fixed yet as Karcher charge a fortune!!

Bought during hosepipe bans, this enables water to be drawn from storage such as water butts, for use in a pressure washer. However, it is a bit short and is therefore not as useful as it might be. I used it in a bucket which I kept topping up with water from a water butt and it did a good job.
