First, let’s learn how many types of layflat hose there are.
The general layflat hoses in agriculture are PVC layflat hose, TPU layflat hose, plastic coating laylfat hose and TUP drag hose.
PVC layflat hose is the most used hose in irrigation, because it’s lightweight and flexible. Besides, it’s very easy to recycle and restore. What’s more, there are four types of PVC layflat hose for different pressure requirements, light duty, standard duty, medium duty and heavy duty.
