PVC lay flat hose

Categories: ,



PVC lay flat hose is one of the most durable lay flat hoses in the market and  design as a standard duty hose in residential, industrial and construction applications. Basically used as water discharge hose, delivery hose, pump hose, and flat hose.

Moreover, Pvc lay flat hose is  a continuous high tensile strength polyester fiber with PVC to provide reinforcement,

PVC lay flat hose are primarily use for irrigation and water supply. Furthermore, it is perfect for use with water, light chemicals and other industrial, agricultural, irrigation, mining and construction fluids.  However, they are also popular among industries such as construction engineering for their flexible, hardwearing and lightweight properties.

PVC lay flat materials and construction.

Pvc lay flat hose pipe end points

PVC lay flat hose is a product of  continuous high tensile strength polyester fiber in order  to provide reinforcement.

The hose is in addition with aluminum, malleable or Gator Lock shank connectors or quick connects through a variety of methods, including standard hose clamps or crimp on connector.


Applications of PVC lay flat hose.

They are particularly effective at completing this task as they have a long life span and abrasion resistant, flexible and easy to transport. PVC Lay Flat Hose is a popular, durable hose which meets the demands of professional farmers everywhere. Heavy wall and high-strength polyester improve the working pressure.

Tube and cover are PVC, reinforced with 3 ply polyester yarns, one longitudinal ply and two spiral plies. Both tube/cover are extruded simultaneously to obtain maximum bonding, and mildew proof hose that rolls up flat for easy storage. Resistant to oils, grease, many chemicals, and acids supply clan water to the farms. PVC lay flat withstand low temperature, thus suitable for irrigation. The hoses are used in agricultural equipment where continuous water flow through irrigation systems is required.


  • PVC lay flat can be used for emergency services

A PVC lay flat hose can save lives. Used by firemen to deliver water to douse raging fires, the lay flat hose is an integral piece of fire safety equipment hence safety for use in emergency services. PVC lay flat hose is designed for light and heavy duty application. Also applied in Applicable in water pump, pool and spa, construction, and marine.


  • Mining and Industries to delivery of water.

PVC lay flat high strength polyester filament and quality is successively winded, weave the threads regularly and molded by plastic coated once thus applicable in industries. Additionally, with a smooth surface, high burst pressure and long service life, PVC lay flat hose is acid and alkali resistant, aging resistant, stretch resistant, anti-twist, flavorless and environmental protection.  Length Pvc lay flat hose is 100m each roll, which can transport water in long distance. Also   used as a water hose in underground mining applications.

What to consider when buying lay flat hose to use.

  • The product cost verse operational cost

PVC Lay flat’s initial cost is lower than other pipe and hose types for  drip manifolds. This makes it a popular choice for first-time growers. Most brands of lay flat are compatible with Oval Hose fittings, which makes locating compatible and affordable fittings an easy task.

  • PVC Lay flat hose durability

Lay flat is flat when not pressurized this means it not only takes up significantly less space when in storage, but it is easier and less expensive to transport compared to Oval Hose. Layflat can be rolled back up in minutes, a feat not possible with some distribution hoses; this reduces labor costs by a margin that cannot be ignored.


  • Availability of Fittings and accessories

As PVC Layflat begin to see more use in farming , industry and irrigation applications, fittings were created to solve some of the problems facing farmers who used Layflat. Leaks problems were solved with the introduction of teardrop fittings. These fittings have a large flange that is inserted into the wall of the Layflat fitting.

These tools create a perfectly sized hole and allow for proper installation. The hole created by the cutting tool should be small, precise, and free of fraying ends.

Other common fittings, such as elbows, tees, couplings, adapters, plugs and reducers, are commonly applicable with many of the same fittings  for Oval Hose. This makes locating compatible fittings easy and effortless.

  • The PVC Layflat operational Specifications

PVC layflat hose can withstand up to 40 psi in its largest sizes of 8 inches, and as high as 100 psi in its smallest 2 inches sizes. To the grower, this means more money saved as pressure reducing valves may not be needed prior to the tape runs and less risk of damage from high pressure is incurred. PVC Lay flat’s resilience has even seen it used as a protective sleeve for other pipe and hose types.  With its woven yarn and fused inner and outer walls, it can handle chemicals and conditions that can severely impair other hose or pipe types like reducing agents, acidic soil treatments and caustic fertilizers.


  • Flexibility

When pressurized, PVC Layflat hose can stretch, twist and elongate a bit. This is particularly true of the first pressurization, though it can happen on subsequent pressurizations as well. The materials used to construct Layflat have changed over the years to help with this, but it is still a frequent occurrence.  Layflat has received some criticism regarding leaking fittings, however this nearly always indicates an improper installation. When installed and used correctly, teardrop fittings provide for water tight connections; it is important to take no short-cuts with the installation of the fittings.

Handling method

Farmers prefer to pull it up and put it in bin boxes, or just roll it up in a roll and others use a pallet or half or quarter pallet depending on how much there is to roll up. Also, make sure you control rodents where you store it. Due to its unique 3-ply polyester yarn construction and simultaneous tube and cover extrusion process, this layflat hose offers high working pressures with minimal elongation and snaking.
