Bore Water Hoses
Accessing underground aquifers has never been easier with Flexibore, Crusader Hose’s popular solution for those needing reliable access to bore water. Our bore water layflat hose has been specifically designed to improve the action of rigid rising mains, maximising efficiency and profit.
Flexibore – the perfect bore water rising main
Flexibore is a flexible rising main that delivers bore water via an underground pump. Once the borehole has been drilled, Flexibore is connected to the pump and can commence delivering water right away. Similarly, when retrieving the bore pump for whatever reason, Flexibore can easily be rolled back into storage, ready for deployment at another site.
has been specifically designed to replace rigid riser pipes made from steel and PVC, which due to their rigidity, are generally heavier and hard to handle. Steel pipes suffer from rust and encrustations and also have to contend with internal scaling. Over time this seriously reduces flow rates and pump efficiency. Other risers made from PVC can be brittle or bend.
Once in the field, Flexibore is attached to the pump with the patented Stainless Steel Hose couplings. The pump, with hose and cables attached, is lowered into the bore using a simple rolling wheel.
Due to its continuous length, the hose can be installed with less time and labour than rigid systems, this includes poly pipe. The same advantages apply to pump retrieval.
It can be combined with other lay flat hose
to deliver water at considerable distances, depending on your needs.
