Here is a thread where you might find some useful information although it doesn't exactly address your situation.  It is older (prior to the 26 and 36) but their suction is a little bit greater.

Adrian,

Here's a document (attached below) that will give you guidance on maximum hose length and how to make the connections between hoses.

You don't need the 50mm hose for either of those, the 36mm would be sufficient. The best solution for the Kapex is a 1.75m length of 36mm hose (buy a 3.5m & 2 extra fittings, make 2 hoses, sell the extra one), but that would be no good for the TS55!!! Works great as a dedicated hose for the Kapex though.

If you want to use the same hose for both, then go for the 3.5m 36mm (unless you have a specific reason to want to go longer?).
