This 50-metre spiral hose is particularly useful for draining water, and can be attached to the pump's delivery connection. It can easily be attached to a garden or booster pump using a hose socket and a hose clamp, and can even be used with a submersible pump for draining water. Most submersible pumps come with a tailpiece or hose coupling to which the hose can be secured with a clamp. Please refer to 'Accessories' below for the right hose socket and clamp for connecting the spiral hose directly.
This spiral hose is 1” in diameter and is 50 metres long. This diameter is ideal for most pumps, such as submersible pumps, garden pumps, booster pumps, or borehole pumps with 1” inlets and outlets to achieve an optimum result.
This high-quality hose is flexible enough to smoothly work its way around bends, but also rigid to prevent kinking or twisting. This is practical, for example, when a submersible pump needs to pump up water around a bend immediately.
You need a few accessories to connect the hose directly to a pump. However, the accessories for Tallas or TIP pumps differ from those needed for DAB or Grundfos pumps. Below is a list of the required connections.
Garden and booster pumps:
- DAB: brass hose socket and a hose clamp
- Grundfos: brass hose socket and a hose clamp
- Tallas: PP threaded adapter, brass hose socket, and a hose clamp
- TIP: PP threaded adapter, brass hose socket, and a hose clamp
For borehole pumps with a 1” connection you can always use a hose socket and a hose clamp.
If you want to use the hose to pump water, you will need the above accessories as well as a suction strainer with a foot valve, and an extra brass hose socket and a hose clamp.
