What divides a good water hose-pipe from the cheap junk once in a while found in the big box discount stores? Here are some of the features to look for in a quality hose-pipe that will give you years of good service.
Drinking water Safe: “Drinking water safe” is not a total designation since all hoses release some small خرید شیلنگ آب عمده amounts of chemicals. PVC and man-made rubber hoses release small amounts of toxic or known carcinogenic compounds into the water and are not generally considered drinking water safe. Ether-based Polyurethane is the best choice for drinking water safe hose-pipe construction since it releases very little in the way of harmful materials.
Quality Construction: Look for brass accessories. Brass has the unique capacity form water-tight brass-to-brass connections. The other benefit for brass is its great resistance to corrosion. Another sign of a superior hose-pipe is the use of high-density silicone hose-pipe kink guards on both ends of the hose-pipe to eliminate any possibility of the hose-pipe collapsing or kinking to a closed position when pulled taunt from the filtration systems that.
Durability: According to data gathered from lab testing results given by plastic tubing manufacturers and chemical compound manufacturers such as Dow Chemical, BF Goodrich among others, this is my best guess from what life expectancy you might get from hoses made of these different materials.
PVC hose-pipe (these are usually the lowest priced hoses) : about one year.
Cheaper Polyurethane compounds (doesn’t say “ether”) : about 3 : 5 years.
High quality multi-layer Rubber : about 5 : 10 years.
Ether-based Polyurethane : about 5 : 10 years.
Hose-pipe Style: Most hoses are of the straight variety. Straight hoses reach to their full length but are the most challenging to store. Straight hoses can be stored on a hose-pipe reel, but it is often difficult to muscle them on and off the reel. If you want to use a reel, a Polyurethane hose-pipe is your best choice since they are lighter and more flexible. Coiled hoses are much easier to withdrawl back into their coil nailers shape for a slighter storage. Cheaper coiled hoses tend to lose the coil nailers memory and twist and kink into a matted mess. There is a hybrid type of coil nailers hose-pipe which retracts back to a very compact flat add and is a good choice if you need the hose-pipe to put into a small space.
Care and Maintenance: With good care and maintenance you can greatly extend living of your hose-pipe. Even with the best UV resistant hoses, long term sun exposure is the greatest threat to long hose-pipe life. If at all possible, store your hoses out of the sun when not used. If you live where the winters are cold, you should depletion your hose-pipe before storage so that the hose-pipe material doesn’t crack due to the expansion of ice.
With your guidelines and advice in mind, you should be able to find a hose-pipe that meets your needs and will provide you years and years of good service.
