Industrial water hose is a common hose with long service life. But if you don’t store it well, the lifespan will be shorter. Then let me show you some methods to store a water rubber hose.
Before storing the hose, coil it properly to prevent kink and tangle. First of all, unload the hose from the water deliver system and clean it up. Then, coil the hose in large loops and avoid tight bend or kink. As that can damage the hose over time.
Protection from sunlight
Direct sunlight can degrade the rubber, then cause it aging. To protect the hose, store it in a shaded area or use a hose reel or container to prevent UV. If you have to store it outdoors, use a hose cover or wrap the hose with a cloth to protect it.
Avoid extreme temperatures
Extreme temperatures can also affect the lifespan of the rubber water hose. Store the hose in a 15℃place and not lower than this. As freezing water inside the hose can cause it to expand and lead to damage. Similarly, avoid storing the hose in areas of excessive heat or near heat sources. As it can cause the rubber to become brittle or degrade over time.
Ensure that the hose is completely drained of water before storing it. This helps prevent the formation of stagnant water, which can lead to mold and mildew. Then hang the hose in a way that can drain it.
Proper storage container
If use a storage container, make sure it is clean and dry before placing the hose inside. In addition, avoid storing the hose in a container that close to moisture or trapped water. As this can promote the growth of mold or mildew.
Avoid sharp objects
When storing the hose, ensure that it is away from sharp objects or edges that can damage the rubber material. Besides, keep it away from tool or any items that may pose a risk of cut or wear.
