Our reinforced PVC yellow hose is a high quality hose that has proved a good all-round performer for water fed pole systems.
The thicker outer wall gives heavy duty durability for improved resistance to abrasion yet has good flexibility making it easy to use.
(Streamline's standard hose may be supplied depending upon stock - see below)

Why use this hose? The advantage of using 6mm and 8mm bore hoses is that both are smaller in outside diameter than standard 13mm (1/2”) bore garden hose. This means that longer lengths of hose, both 50m and 100m lengths, can be stored on a hose reel (see WXV020 and WXV023 for hose reel options)
Which hose bore should I use? As a general rule always choose the largest bore size of hose. This will reduce the pressure loss within the system and allows the pump to operate at a lower speed – so 8mm bore hose is better than 6mm bore hose. However there may be times when the physical weight and size of the hose are an important factor, in this case 6mm bore hose has an advantage – providing the increased pressure loss does not cause any operational problems due to pressure loss.
What’s the difference between minibore and microbore hose? Microbore is generally 6mm bore hose and minibore is 8mm bore hose. The two terms can sometimes be confused. It is better to state the bore size, rather than ask for minibore or microbore.
Why do you state the bore size instead of the outside diameter? Most of the hose fittings we supply fit into the bore of the hose and these fittings are described by the bore size of hose they fit.
Which size of O Clip fits? 6mm bore hose use O Clip WXV602 and 8mm use O Clip WXV603.
Why yellow hose? It is a good visible colour which helps when trying to reduce trip hazards when using water fed poles.
