Drinking water suitable flat hoses for temporary supply of potable water & flexible hose risers for pumping well water.Product overview
Access to clean drinking water is a significant component of infrastructure worldwide, and large-scale water distribution is a challenge.
Flat pressure hoses for potable water supply can be used for static and portable water sources, often replacing unsafe, traditional water transport methods.
For the population, access to clean, potable water minimizes the risk of waterborne disease transmission.
For events, large-scale events, festivals, city festivals, in contrast to drinking water supply emergencies, the aim is to provide drinking quality water to many people for a short period of time in places that are not connected to a supply network.
For this purpose, highly flexible pressure hoses are planned for the provision of drinking water by water suppliers, municipalities and event organizers.
They are quickly laid, robust, flexible, easy to clean and space-saving to store.
Water, the number one basic foodstuff, does not always come from the drinking water pipeline. Hose systems are used as temporary emergency lines or bypasses for general drinking water supply in civil protection, disaster management and the military.
Cut off by a burst water main or destroyed water pipes, those affected are soon literally left high and dry. An emergency water supply secures access to drinking water and diverts wastewater when a normal supply of water is endangered, restricted or impossible.
In the field of well construction, when wells are developed as a source of drinking water, the potable groundwater must be pumped from the water table to the surface. By using flat, highly flexible pressure hoses as hose risers, the water quality is protected from contamination. Loops on the hose riser suitable for potable water guide secure the pump cable.
During the production process, the jacket lining is centered in special PU and forms the hard-wearing yet pliable backbone of the finished hose.
For PU hoses, GH normalization takes place after production for extra flexibility – for practicality during use and winding up.
We have something against germs! To ensure the valuable water can be drunk without health qualms, firstly GH hoses are fabricated of special drinking water-safe polyurethane (TPU); secondly, the inside is especially smooth to prevent any breeding ground for microbes and bacteria.
After use, it simply needs flushing out with commercially available disinfectant, or using compressed air and a softball. We are committed to quality to keep things running cleanly every time!

Compared to temporary rigid drinking water pipes, GH drinking water hoses are flexible and pliable despite their resistance to mechanical and weather influences. Unlike pipelines made of individual sections, the use of drinking water hoses does not lead to corrosion and, as a result, to contamination and leaks. What makes a safe drinking water hose? Where can flat hoses be used effectively for drinking water supply?
