Bore water is an important source of agricultural, industrial and mining water supply. Bore water retrieval has been a difficult task over the years and has only simplified with current hose technology.
Crusader’s revolutionary Flexibore Hose ensures simple and effective bore water retrieval, mine de-watering and municipal water supply. This flexible yet resilient layflat hose can be installed with great ease compared with rigid pipes. Furthermore, when the pump needs to be retrieved from the bore, it is very easy to lift using Flexibore.
Flexibore is a flexible riser used for ground water pumping. This hose is constructed by integrating thermoplastic polyurethane into a woven textile fabric of high tenacity polyester. The heavy duty internal fabric gives the hose flexibility whilst sustaining the weight of a submersible pump. The Flexibore hose holds both the pump and water weight so no safety cable is required.
Compatibility Flexibore will suit many borehole applications and is compatible with most submersible pumps. The sizes range from 40mm to 200mm internal diameter and depths up to 250 meters. This flexible hose comes complete with stainless steel or high tensile polymer couplings.
Flexibore is designed for use with:
- Mine de-watering
- domestic and municipal water supply
- test pumping
- rural and industrial bore water retrieval
- similar ground water projects.
Our easily handling hose has been specially designed to replace rigid riser pipes such as steel which are subject to rust and encrustations. Traditional rusted pumps reduce flow rates and pump efficiency, whereas Flexibore hoses are easy to handle, flexible and improve flow rates due to swelling under pressure.
Crusader’s Flexibore Hose was utilised in a high-tech bore water pumping case study in partnership with Thinkwater Bunbury. We worked to extract ground water from depths of 245 metres and suspended the 90 kW submersible pump without safety cable; further enhancing the value of our Flexibore hose.
Once in the field, Flexibore is attached to the pump with the patented couplings. The pump, with hose and cables attached, is lowered into the bore using either a simple rolling wheel or a crane. Flexibore is manufactured in continuous lengths and can be installed with less time and labour than rigid systems including poly pipe.

Flexibore 250 is a flexible riser used for ground water pumping. By integrating thermoplastic polyurethane into a woven textile fabric of high tenacity polyester, the hose is produced. This process gives the hose flexibility while sustaining the weight of a submersible pump. Compatibility Flexibore 250 will suit many borehole applications and is compatible with most submersible pumps. The sizes range from 40mm to 200mm internal diameter and depths of up to 250m.
Typical Applications These include mine de-watering, domestic and municipal water supply, test pumping, rural and industrial bore-water retrieval and similar ground water projects. General Application Flexibore has been specifically designed to replace rigid riser pipes such as steel which is subject to rust and encrustations. This internal scaling reduces flow rates and pump efficiency. Other risers such as PVC and polypipe can be brittle or bend. They are also generally heavier and hard to handle.
Ease of Use
Easy Installation Once in the field, Flexibore 250 is attached to the pump with the patented couplings. The pump, with hose and cables attached, is lowered into the bore using either a simple rolling wheel or a crane. See our installation brochure for further details. Transportable With its continuous length, the hose can be installed with less time and labour than rigid systems, this includes poly pipe. The same advantages apply to pump retrieval.
