In the last piece we learn the application of layflat hose in agriculture. But the practical application is not that smooth as we think. That’s to say there will be various of problems during the use. Then let’s see what are these problems.
First is the twist
If the layflat hose twists during the set, the water will not able to go through the hose and get to the destination. What’s more, if the hose is very long, it will be a huge work to reinstall, especially for the large size layflat hose. Therefore, you should pay more attention to the correct installation.
Second, the terrain
When used in mountain area, the land will not be plat. Instead, it will be rugged and uneven. On such occasion, the hose have to transfer the water to a higher place. However, this need a larger power to pump the water and cause a huge cost. Thus you’d better find a relatively gentle to place the layflat hose.
Third, the freeze
In cold winder, the hose will be frozen if used outside. You can keep the hose a small flow after use, because it can keep a certain temperature inside the hose. However, the best way is to recycle the hose and restore it in the room after use.
Forth, the crush
A long distance water transfer cause a inescapable question that how to avoid the crush from human and other vehicles. OrientFlex here offer you some suggestions. You can set a hose protector with the layflat hose because it can protect your hose from crush. Another suggestion is dig a ditch, then put the hose into it. However, you should keep the top of hose fair or lower with the ground.
Last is the burst or crack
If you find cracks or burst somewhere on the hose, you can plug it with cloth, though there will be leakage. However, it’s not a permanent solution. While the best method is cut off the broken section and reconnect the hose with a connector.
