RHL offer a wide range of drinking water hoses suitable for short term or temporary bypass applications. Our potable water hoses include WRAS and UK Regulation 31 approved options.

Aquaflex – UK Reg 31 and WRAS Approved Drinking Water Hose

Our Aquaflex potable water hose is a general purpose all synthetic layflat delivery hose certified to BS 6920 WRAS Material Approval, and also approved for use in public water supplies as per the Secretary of State’s List of Approved products listing 56/4/1397, as published by the Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI).

The hose is a two-component system consisting of a transparent polyurethane inner lining and a synthetic polyester outer jacket. An additional blue NBR synthetic rubber exterior coating with ribs is applied for ease of handling and further resistance to abrasion. 

RHL Aquaflex UK Reg 31 and WRAS approved drinking water hose is primarily used by the Water Authorities and sub contractors involved in the water sector for the emergency bypass of mains water due to failed pipework. This heavy duty lay flat potable water hose provides a temporary supply of essential water to the public.

Aquaflex is the preferred choice of Regulation 31 approved hose by the Water Authorities due to its unique construction. Whilst it is a heavy duty hose, the difference between Aquaflex and the TPU hose is its extreme flexibility, which is crucial in the emergency deployment by the Network Response Teams.

Aquaflex is also a multi-purpose hose commonly used within the shipboard and marine industry, on refineries and construction sites for the transfer of potable water due to its WRAS approval.
