Currently stocked in over 100 independent and multi-branch plumbers merchants nationwide, Hydralectric offers robust braided flexible hoses for the safe, taint-free conveyance of potable water in bathrooms and kitchens. We offer merchants a catalogue range featuring a variety of lengths and wide selection of standard plumbing connections – along with fast dispatch and dedicated account manager.
Ensuring the delivery of safe, clean water for domestic and commercial use is paramount to Hydralectric. The growing use of push-fit connections in place of traditional brass is another example of the constant quest for new materials that comply with regulations, as well as offering improvements in terms of quality, reliability and cost. We are always working to meet these challenges, from research and development through component sourcing and production control to final delivery, drawing on our 20 years’ experience of supplying flexible hoses for hot and cold potable water.
We have developed two ranges of robust flexible hose for the connection of hot and cold potable water supplies in domestic and commercial plumbing systems:
The Qualflex™ Classic range is a versatile braided flexible hose for the safe, taint-free conveyance of potable water for drinking, bathing, and cooking. Made using high-quality non-toxic EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber), the Qualflex™ Classic range is fully WRAS approved for both hot and cold water (up to 65°C) with excellent flexibility and kink resistance. The Classic range of flexible hoses is available with a wide selection of standard plumbing connections, bore sizes, and lengths to fulfil any plumbing installation.
The Qualflex™ Excel range offers an alternative that does not use EPDM. It is made from a semi-flexible PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) liner that complies with stringent regulations regarding micro-bacterial growth and cross-infection. The Excel range was developed to address concerns arising from health and safety bodies regarding potentially harmful grades of EPDM – commonly found in imports from the Far East. Excel flexible hoses are WRAS approved for both hot and cold water, and recommended in use within public sectors buildings including hospitals, schools, and prisons.
