"Used to pump sludgy water from submersible pump. Perfect for the job. Bright colour means you don't trip over it in the dark. Tough, durable; will see me out. Rolls up flat for convenient storage. Will stop water flow if put round too tight a corner (common sense)."
"Lay flat hose very useful for storage and performs well used with a reasonably high power pump. Need to take into account that any bends required should ideally be dealt with using solid pipe corners or more rigid flexible hose pieces to get the best water flow through the hose as it tends to kink when bent too much while working. Make sure you allow for bends as required and it's a great piece of kit."
"Bought this to fit an TITAN pump. Does the job in general but continually kinking due to it being a lay flat hose. And bend in the pipe and it just kinks and stops the water from flowing out. Not the best product on the market"
"Easy to store, but really doesn't like going around corners - difficult when it's attached to a dirty water pump at the bottom of a drain! I will probably look for a shorted piece of large diameter "normal" hose to connect between this and the pump"
"Needed to pump out a well located in the cellar. It was almost impossible with the layflat hose because it cannot go round corners. I struggled for more than a 2 hours to complete the job. I then invested in the Suction Delivery Hose (product 10105) and it was able to do the job in no time at all and successfully negotiated tight bends in the process."
