A hose pipe, also known as a flexible hollow pipe, is a hollow tube made to transport liquids from one place to another. Normally, hoses are also known as flexible tubes, or more commonly flex tubes. Hoses used in the plumbing industry are typically made of PVC hose, which is very flexible and light weight. The length of a hose pipe can be very variable, depending on the diameter and length you need. The form of a hose pipe is also typically cylindrical.
One of the advantages of using PVC hose pipe, or flex tubes, is that it is very adaptable to the varied shapes of spaces, making it easy to fit for almost any application. Another advantage is that it comes in a variety of diameters, ranging from three-inch diameter through fifty-foot diameter. The different diameters of the hoses often come in sets, with one set for each specific application, such as long hose reels for water transfer into large tanks, and smaller reels for smaller jobs. You can even find a combination hoses, which will combine the advantages of both flexible PVC hose and other flexible materials, in order to work more efficiently.
The other advantage of using these flexible hoses is their ability to work in more than one way. For example, many hose pipes have an inlet valve at both the end and the bottom. The valve may be closed while you are watering your lawn, but it may open when the hose is pulled over to a sprinkler head, increasing water pressure to help get the lawn covered faster. This is a much more flexible option than the traditional closed in valves found in irrigation systems. You can also use this same type of valve to turn off the irrigation during extended periods of inactivity, such as when you are not gardening or doing other outdoor tasks, which can save you money on your electric bill.
