Central air conditioner hose

What is the name of the rubbery substance that protects the outside air conditioner hose. Most of it has peeled away and time now to replace it.

Hi Zw_iCK--4,

 

That insulation is a soft foam flexible insulation designed to prevent temperature changes in the line.

 

You may buy replacement  insulation at your local Home Depot plumbing department.

Mike, I tried to purchase insulation for the central air condition hose from the plumbing depart. I was told that I need to know the size of the hose. Also, I noticed there were different thicknesses. All had the sticky substance on the inside so the insulation will stick to the hose. Will I need a clasp to hold the insulation in place?

Hi Zw_iCK-4,

 

Take a piece of the original hose to the store, If we don't have the exact size cover, check with a plumbing supply house.
