Description

Application

Flexibore is designed for use with:

  • Rural and industrial bore water retrieval
  • Ground water pumping in mines
  • Submersible pumps for domestic and municipal water supply
  • Solar bore pumps for stock and domestic use
  • Test pumping.

 

Flexibore Hose is specifically designed to replace rigid riser pipes – such as steel and fibreglass pipes – which are subject to rust and encrustations, and are rigid, cumbersome and costly to install and retrieve. Steel and fibreglass riser pipes are also subject to interior iron bacteria build-up. This reduces flow rates and pump efficiency. Flexibore hoses do not get iron bacteria build -up due to swelling under pressure. This keeps the pumping costs down. 

 

Features

  • Quick and easy hose installation and retrieval
  • No internal scaling
  • Corrosion and microbiological damage resistance
  • Reduced head losses and improved flow rates due to swelling under pressure
  • Less labour intensive due to ease of installation
  • Reduced transport costs due to light weight easily handling
  • Custom lengths made to order
  • Potable water approved: AS 4020
  • Hydrostatically tested
  • Simple maintenance due to iron bacteria resistance
  • Long service life
  • No safety cable required.
