Description of the Twenty-metre, 1" spiral hose for drawing in and draining water
- Suitable for 1" connections
- For drawing in and draining water
Pros and cons
- Strong, robust material
- Extra long for drawing in and draining water
- Kink resistant, does not twist
- Suitable for drawing in and draining water
- No coupling pieces; cannot be connected directly.
This spiral hose can be used in a wide range of situations, and can be attached to your pump to draw in as well as to drain water. 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 to drain water. Most submersible pumps come with a hose socket 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 to connect the spiral hose directly.
This spiral hose is 1” in diameter and 20 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 optimal result.
This high-quality hose is flexible enough to work its way smoothly around bends, but is also rigid enough to prevent kinking or twisting. This is practical, for example, when a submersible pump needs to pump up water around a bend immediately, or if a garden pump/booster pump needs to pump water from a distance. Please note: the longer the pumping distance, the lower the priming depth should be. For example, with a 20-metre hose, the maximum priming depth should be two metres.
You will 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, an extra brass hose socket, and a hose clamp.
