Default Tip: UV protection for exterior propane hose...

The guys at Airgas told me the red fuel hose on the exterior of the studio will more affected by UV light than weather and temperature changes.

I use a pool noodle to cover and protect my hose.

Using a box cutter, I slit the pool noodle lengthwise on one side only.
This allows you to slide the pool noodle over the hose so it is inside the hollow center of the noodle.
I cut the end of the noodle to fit the exact length of the hose.
Then, I use a few zip ties to secure the noodle closed, seam side down.

I write the date on the noodle with marker so I know when it was changed.
I replace it every fall.
Fast, simple. And, the hose underneath feels and looks like new!

Inexpensive, too! (Not to mention COLORFUL!).
