Hoses and Fittings for Pond Filtration Systems
Black tends to be the most popular colour of hose that is available, and this is be because black hoses are also the most practical choice. They are more easily concealed if you are looking for your hose to be hidden, either in the pond or on the ground. The black colour also discourages algae from growing inside the hose, which keeps the hose in good working order. Algae forming in the hose can affect the performance of any equipment that the hose is attached to, as water cannot flow through the hose as easily, due to the diameter of the hose being reduced.
There are a wide variety of clips that are available to be used with flexible hoses, but Jubilee stainless steel clips are the most popular choice. These clips can be used in the water, without the need to worry about them rusting. They also provide a great deal of protection from leaks, as when they are attached to the hose they are very secure. This is due to the foam strip which ensures that the clip grips tightly to the hose and also protect the hose from the clip cutting into it. These types of clips can be easily tightened or loosened as required using a small screwdriver or spanner. Jubilee clips that are zinc plated are also available, and these clips have thumb turners that allow them to be tightened or loosened as necessary.
Rigid connectors such as Universal Tees and Universal Unions can also cater for a wide range of installations. whether you need to convert from one size of pipe to another or need to spit the flow into two, we have the fittings you will need
