Water pump hoses

Water pump hose is a hose that is used to transport water and other liquids from and towards the pump. Water pump hose is an essential accessory for water and sewerage systems - both in private homes and in industry. Without them, the transport of liquids would be impossible. Such hoses are most often made from the plastic material PVC, which provides them with high resistance to environmental conditions and mechanical damage. 

Water pump hoses are divided into two basic types: discharge and suction. The former are used to transport the fluid from the pump to its final destination (i.e. operate at positive pressure), while the latter conversely send the fluid from its source towards the pump (i.e. operate at negative pressure). You will find both types of hose in our range. Each is characterised by the highest quality workmanship.

Water pump hoses - Submersible pump hoses

How is the water pump hose constructed?

Water pump hose is usually constructed from soft PVC, so it flattens out when you are not using it. This is very convenient as the product takes up less space and is easier to store when not needed.

Furthermore, in order to ensure that the hose can handle the working pressure, in addition to the PVC layer itself, the manufacturer has equipped it with reinforcement in the form of special fibres (usually polyester).

Thanks to the above, the hose copes well with pumping water (both clean and dirty) and most environmental conditions it will face.

The suction pump hose is slightly different. As it is designed for vacuum operation, it has additional reinforcement in the form of a spiral (usually made of steel wire). This prevents the walls of the hose from collapsing inwards under the effect of the suction force.

As the reinforcement makes this type of hose stiffer to some extent, it is not flat.

What are the different types of water pump hoses?

As we have already mentioned, water pump hoses are divided into two main types. These are:

  • discharge pump hose, 
  • suction pump hose.

The discharge hose for water pumps is used for pumping fluid, i.e. it works under positive pressure. It transports the fluid from the pump to the final destination, so it will work very well as a hose for a submersible pump or a deep well pump.

When it comes to suction hoses for water pumps, on the other hand, they are designed to work slightly differently. Instead of pumping the medium, they suck it from a given source by means of the vacuum that the pump creates. Therefore, they will work well in situations where you are using, for example, a hydrophore system.

In addition to the above, there is also an intermediate version, the suction and discharge hose, which is used for both purposes.

How to choose a hose for a water or septic tank pump?

When you are choosing hoses for your installation, be guided first and foremost by their diameter - this is the main determinant of the throughput. Always select it according to the capacity available to your pump. The general rule is that wider hoses should work with more powerful pumps.

Hose diameter also plays an important role when it comes to transporting water with contaminants. If the hose is too narrow, there is a risk of clogging the flow.

For dirty water, also pay attention to hose parameters such as the permissible fluid density and maximum particle size.

Last but not least is the length of the hose. Choose it keeping in mind the specifics of the job. Also consider the manufacturers' advice that the hose should be laid loosely, without unnecessary tension. This will ensure that you do not strain the material and the product will last much longer.

As an example: a hose for a deep well should have a few metres of reserve in case you find that you need to run it around an object.

FAQ

Which hose for the pump?

arrow-up

Always choose a pump hose based on its maximum working pressure. This is particularly important for small diameter hoses, as there is a serious risk that too much power from the unit will simply tear it apart.

Which hose for a dirty water pump?

arrow-up

When selecting a hose for a dirty water pump, also take into account parameters such as the permissible density of the liquid or the maximum particle size. Otherwise, a blockage may form in the hose during fluid transfer and prevent the pump from continuing to operate.

Which to choose: a 1-inch water pump hose or a 2-inch water pump hose?

arrow-up

The diameter of the hose has a direct correlation with the flow capacity and maximum working pressure. As a general rule, an increase in hose width translates into a decrease in flow pressure. Therefore, hoses with a larger diameter usually work with high-powered pumps.
