10' Braided stainless steel hose - Washing machine

Does anyone know where I may be able to find braided stainless steel flex hose for a washing machine in 10 foot lengths?

Thank you.

Anthony: welcome to the forums. You don't want to run a flexible pipe that far. Wouldn't it be easier to extend the copper/cpvc from the original location to a washing machine box nearer the location you need it at?

My first thought was two 6-ft hoses with a coupler, but chandler's right.

Thanks. Problem is that there's a chimney and a 3" vent pipe in the way. I could run the copper outside of the drywall, but would prefer not. The alternative is to put the washer next to the piping (possible), but it simply utilizes too much space in that fashion. I've already got it set up with a 10' washer hose that I purchased from the local hardware store, but it's not braided stainless. No ideas on where to get a 10' length??

You're going to run a line anyway, cpvc would be more resistant to coming apart on you than a hose - even braided stainless.

You will think of us in a year if you run that flexible hose, even stainless braid. Its life expectancy is reduced by every inch of rubber you add to the length. Good point on the cpvc. Easy to work with and work around. Adapt the ends to use a brass ball valve, however. The cpvc ball valves suck for lack of a better term.
