1. A hose, comprising:

  • a) a flexible elongated body having a first end, a second end, and an interior channel defined along its length for transporting a fluid material between the first end and the second end upon introduction of pressurized fluid into the first end;

    b) a biasing means interconnected with said flexible elongated body for generating a first force tending to retract said flexible elongated body longitudinally along its length;

    c) wherein said hose is adapted to attach to a means for restricting the flow of the fluid material flowing through said interior channel, wherein said means for restricting the flow results in higher pressure within said interior channel, wherein the higher pressure generates a second force tending to extend said flexible elongated body longitudinally along its length, and wherein when said second force is sufficient to overcome said first force the flexible elongated body extends.
