Default Triton dust hose?

From what I can tell, my Triton 3 1/4 HP router takes a 1.5" (outside diameter) hose, but I can't seem to locate one. This doesn't appear to be a standard size...

Anyone know where I can find a compatible dust hose for this thing, or has anyone found an acceptable work-around?

Hi -Welcome to the forum
What's the ID/OD of the router fitting? I've had some luck in that size range finding make-do adapters from thin wall pvc fittings. Try browsing the Lowes/HD/Acme/you pick plumbing departments, especially the undersink fittings.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Welcome to the router forum.

Thank you for joining us

For my Triton TRA001, I just use vacuum cleaner extension hose. other have suggested pool cleaner hose.

I have the router and also the Triton dust collector system and the hose works fine.

I used a flex hose for sump pump from home depot. It also is used on my chop saw and radial arm saw and trend line colts

Thanks for the replies and the welcome, fellas. Looks like I will grab my router and head to the Big Box Store (tm) and see what I can find to fit. Appreciate the feedback.
