You should also check the bend radius of the hose everywhere. For every hose, 
there is a minimum bend radius; bends sharper than this produce stresses that 
may be higher than the hose is designed ot take. Every hose manufacturer 
publishes the minimum bend radius right along with the max working pressure.
