To supply water over long distances, large diameter hoses must be used in order to limit friction loss. A serious problem in the past has been the extremely labour intensive job to man-handle heavy hose and the slow unloading from trucks. That limited the practical use of large diameter hose. The HYTRANS hose handling system means that both the rapid deployment of large diameter hose and the efficient and quick recovery of large diameter hose is now possible.
Many years of testing large diameter hoses have resulted in a hose specification especially suited for the HYTRANS system.
