Wash Your Hoses FASTER

The IN-FLOW Hose Washer from OTEX Manufacturing eliminates the time-consuming hassle of washing your fire hoses by hand. Replace your garden hoses, hand brushes, and high-flow washers with the tested and proven hose washer that’s in use right now in fire departments from the Pacific to the Atlantic to the Arctic Circle.

Designed for Today’s Firefighters

You don’t have to be a firefighter for very long before you discover that washing fire hoses by hand is time consuming, tedious, cumbersome—and ineffective. Garden hoses and hand brushes simply can’t remove the soot, debris, and contaminants that you encounter at today’s fires.

That’s why the team at OTEX manufacturing designed, engineered and built the IN-FLOW Hose Washer. Each member of the design team is a firefighter with decades of experience. They understand the frustrations and limitations of manual washing methods, and the limitations of the solutions currently on the market.

So, they invented a better way, the IN-FLOW Hose Washer.

Operates with standard

pressure washers

Operates with the standard 3-4 gpm pressure washer or UHP fire pump common in fire halls across North America.



Easy to set up

High-pressure water is delivered to the unit through a hose attached to the 3/8'' female pressure washer coupling on the end of the unit.

Blasts away soot and debris

Inside the unit are two sets of twin high-pressure nozzles. 

Two nozzles at the entrance, one on each side, blast away loose and encrusted soot, debris, and contaminants as the hose enters the unit.

Two nozzles at the exit, one on each side, rinse away debris that’s been loosened by the brushes.



Scrapes away encrusted debris

Between the pairs of high-pressure nozzles are two heavy-duty brushes, one on each side of the channel. These brushes dislodge and scrape away encrusted soot, debris and contaminants as you pull the hose through the unit.

Easy to carry

Two heavy-duty handles make the IN-FLOW Hose Washer easy to carry, maneuver and lift up to a storage shelf.



Protects your work area

A pair of heavy-duty rubber gaskets contain the debris, soot, and spray, keeping the local environment safe.

Designed for ultra-low water use and reduced area contamination

Unlike traditional hose washers, the IN-FLOW Hose Washer is designed to both conserve water and limit area contamination. Traditional hose washers operate from a fire hydrant or apparatus and consume up to 60 gallons per minute. That’s a lot of runoff. The IN-FLOW Hose Washer uses just three gallons per minute. It generates little area contamination, and makes your job of containing runoff much easier.
