HWS - Flood Protection Hube

We have brought this product onto the market because in large parts of Europe extremely heavy rainfall is becoming more frequent, leading to considerable damage. Damage that occurs independently of flooding rivers when basements, garages or other utility areas are flooded by suddenly occurring floods.

The economic burdens are immense and the water protection hose gives not only private individuals the opportunity to ensure with little effort that the water is drained from objects to be protected.

The advantages at a glance:

This protective hose is made of robust, PVC-coated polyester fabric, has a diameter of 400 mm and can be filled with tap water if required.

It reaches a height of approx. 20 cm. The individual standard lengths are 2, 4 and 8 m.

The filling times of the 2 m hose are approx. 15 minutes, 4 m - approx. 30 minutes, 8 m - approx. 60 minutes.

After use, the hose is emptied via the inlet or outlet valve and can be rolled up to save space.

Application of the hose system during floods:

Preparing the surface: The surface should be as smooth and straight as possible. Coarse and deeper cracks in the ground can cause water to run under the hose. You may be able to compensate for such areas with a little sand, brushed in with a broom. Stones or plant remains should also be removed. The hose must be fastened for sloping positions, e.g. in driveways. Lay out the hose so that the fastening strip is on the higher side. The hose is now anchored in the ground with the help of pegs or other fastening elements.

Assembling and filling the HWS hose:

Roll out the hose completely at the intended position. Now open the vent valve. Unscrew the cover of the filling valve on the other side. The connection is suitable for a garden hose with 3⁄4" thread. Usually the same connections are used with which you connect your hose to the tap. Now the hose can be filled. At the very beginning, make sure that the hose is rolled out completely and levelled. After you have turned on the tap, you can briefly lift the hose again at the sides and stretch it. The water protection hose should be filled until the water runs out of the vent valve. Do not close the vent valve until you have interrupted the water supply or turned off the tap. Now remove the hose from the filling valve and screw open the cover.

Cleaning and drying:

To drain, open both valves and roll or push the hose sideways in the direction of flow before rolling the hose back together.
