Layflat is lightweight and convenient hose which rolls flat when not in use.
It is quick to deploy and ideally suited for use as short runs (say 50 m) of delivery hose. The pressure of the water in the hose holds it open and therefore may cause greater friction losses than rigid pipe of the same internal diameter.
Can be used across roads and will accept light traffic driving over it (although pin-hole leaks may occur). For a better solution, see our Road Ramp.
It is not suitable for use as suction hose.
Available in various inside diameters such as 25 mm (1″), 32 mm (1¼”), 38 mm (1½”), 51 mm (2″), 76 mm (3″), 102 mm (4″) & 152 mm (6″). Sizes 51 mm (2”) and up are available with bauer compatible couplings.
Rigid Plastic Polypipe
A rigid yet lightweight hose ideally suited for use on the delivery side of the pump.
Polypipe is ideally suited to longer runs or semi-permanent installations.
It is supplied in 3”, 4”, 6” and 8” internal diameters in 6 m (20 ft) “sticks” with bauer compatible quick release couplings.
Wire Armoured Hose
A very durable wire reinforced rubber hose fitted with Bauer couplings.
Wire Armoured Hose is ideal for use on the inlet side of the pump as it won’t collapse under suction, although can be used as delivery hose as well.
Wire Armoured Hose is available in 3”, 4”, 6” and 8” internal diameters in 3m (10 ft) or 6 m (20 ft) lengths.
Green Medium Duty Hose (“Kanaflex”)
This is a general purpose, lightweight PVC spiral/corrugated hose ideal for use as suction and delivery hose.
It is flexible, hardwearing and cost-effective making it a suitable alternative to Wire Armoured Hose for smaller pumps and lighter applications.
Green Medium Duty Suction and Delivery Hose is available in a range of inside diameters such as 25 mm (1″), 32 mm (1¼”), 38 mm (1½”), 51 mm (2″), 76 mm (3″), 102 mm (4″) & 152 mm (6″) and in lengths up to 30 m (100 ft). It is available as hose, or as an assembly with bauer-compatible couplings.
