Anchoring the Hose

pump

  1. Double the hose back about 40 cm (16 in.).

 

To prevent the empty hose from being twisted and blown on windy days, secure the hose by placing wire loops over the hose and inserting the ends of the wire into the ground. The wire hoops should be used every 3 to 4.5 m (10 to 15 ft.). Any stiff wire can be used, including coat hangers.

 

Connecting 2 Hoses

To connect 2 hoses, for longer runs, simply insert the last 1.5 m (5 ft.) of hose from the pump into the next hose. The water pressure will hold the 2 hoses together; or use a 12.24 cm (6 in.) coupler to connect hoses - Part No. WAT42

Reinforcing the Hose

In high lift or long distance pumping situations the hose should be doubled for the first 15-30 m (50-100 ft.)
 from the pump.
