Water pump hose for simplified bore water retrieval
Bore water retrieval can be a difficult task and only recently, it has been simplified with modern flexible layflat hose technology. Our revolutionary Flexibore® flexible rising main ensures simple and effective bore water retrieval. This layflat bore hose can be installed and retrieved with great ease compared to rigid pipes.
Flexibore® is constructed by integrating thermoplastic polyurethane into a woven textile fabric of high tenacity polyester. The heavy-duty internal fabric gives the hose flexibility and great tensile strength in one continuous length. Since Flexibore® hose can sustain both the submersible pump and water weight, no safety cable is required. Flexibore® is a flexible riser that will suit many borehole applications and is compatible with most submersible pumps.
The sizes range from 32mm to 254mm internal diameter and depths up to 400m. This flexible riser hose comes complete with stainless-steel couplings in grades 304 or 316. Duplex 2205 or Super Duplex 2507 available to order.
Our flexible bore water hose is totally corrosion and microbiological damage resistant and will not succumb to iron bacteria build-up.
- Easy to install and retrieve
- Secure and easy-to-fit coupling
- Simple power cable attachment
- No iron bacteria build-up
- Continuous length
- Bore water pumping.
- Lowering groundwater table in mines.

Frequently Asked Questions
There are 3 recommended methods for safely installing pumps with Flexibore® : vehicle assisted, crane assisted, and hand assisted. The method chosen will depend on the bore depth, pump weight and access space.
Flexibore® couplings are designed to be fitted onto the hose during installation. Once the coupling has been attached to the pump, the hose is pushed onto the coupling tail; 2x 3-piece clamp sets are then securely fastened around the hose using an Allen key.
There are 2 methods to secure the power cable to the hose: Crusader Hose-approved heavy-duty cable ties & polyurethane straps.
As long as the total weight of the pump and cable falls within the safety margin of the max tensile load, then no safety cable is required. If the total weight is higher than the recommended max tensile load, please contact us to discuss safety cable usage.
