Rubber, plastic composites and other materials have been used in water distribution practises for years. Hazardous materials encompasses a large range of substances and dangers. The latest trend is to use polyurethane and nylon fittings all NSF approved and tested.

“The new-age practise of organic farming requires soil testing, air testing, eater testing and some other geographic concerns depending on the state or province you are in.” states Micheal Shaw from Agri-chem Analytics in British Columbia. “The overlooked link in the chain of agricultural operations, even if they aren’t organically certified, is the means of water distribution. The transport piping can often leach carcinogens and toxins into the water supply.”

If the hose or pipe is a solid, dark color this also attracts heat, bacteria and algae build up. Spreading either on your crop will be a mistake.

“The latest technology that we’ve been retrofitting to older systems and implementing in our new systems is manufactured by EPI Plastics in Ontario. The fittings are all flexible nylon, crush proof and very resilient to high pressures. The hose is a clear polyurethane and is really changing the game.”

The flat, expandable hose is designed for sanitation. It has a strong composition and memory and self discharges. By doing so there is no bacteria formations. The clear hose allows UV light to pass through to help control any algae growth. This tough polyurethane hosing has a burst test rating to 230psi and a pressure rating of 100psi and up. The trend is to retrofit this type of clear hose for agricultural and farm use.

“It truly has been a revolutionary material for us and the Clear Flow™ Water Hose design by EPI has been excellent. They manufacture any custom length and come in various width.”
