Marine Deck Wash and Drinking Water Hoses by Flat Out


2 minute video: The boys at Port Macquarie Marine Rescue had some fun making an ad for Flat Out Marine Hoses

A MARINE HOSE SOLUTION THAT SAVES SPACE, SAVES TIME AND IS A JOY TO USE

Excellent for everything from fishing boat washdown to fresh water tank filling on your yacht at a marina, Flat Out's Australian made hoses are world class. With exceptional longevity and performance plus a unique storage design – the Flat Out Multi-Reel – you will turn your gotta-do jobs into wanna-dos!


The working pressure rating of Flat Out hoses is 2100 kPa and minimum burst pressure 5250 kPa. Since mains pressure maximum in Australia is 500 kPa, you can understand why we say these hoses are tough.

ELEGANT AND PRACTICAL FLAT HOSE SYSTEM

Flat Out hoses are a miniaturised fire hose, which means they are abrasion resistant and ultra flexible. Winding them onto the Multi-Reel when packing up, you also squeeze all the water out, so when you store your hose it will not leave a puddle. The flat hose is lighter and packs away smaller than conventional hoses of the same length. The 19 mm diameter of the hose means that once the water in it is under pressure, it will not kink as you move around to wash your vessel. The outer jacket is polyester with mould inhibitors and the liner is anti-microbial so there is no need to dry it to pack up.
Brass fittings with standard 12 mm (½") snap ends are crimped to your hose so you can use it with standard adaptors such as trigger nozzles and tap connectors from any brand. However, we also supply a dual-size brass tap adaptor with each unit.

MARINE HOSE DRINK WATER SAFETY AS4020 POTABLE

The Australian standard for potable water is AS4020; please don't confuse this with AS2070 which simply means a hose inner has been made from a food-grade plastic. To receive AS4020 certification, the factory must be inspected, and the hoses are laboratory tested for anti-tainting qualities. Flat Out Drink Water hoses are AS4020 certified with the lining made from Polyurethane (PU) – the material used to make medical tubing. That's how safe they are! Our hoses also conform to German BGA DIN39 potability standard and the factory is ISO 9001 accredited.

JOINING AND STACKING

If extra length is required, you can always join Flat Out hoses together using a standard hose joiner such as our accessory product P7. You can also store your extension leads on Flat Out Multi-Reels. You will enjoy tangle-free hoses or leads every time, and increased lifespan for your gear now being stored in an armour-plated container that reduces twists which could damage the gear. An Original Multi-Reel will take up to 30 m of heavy duty 15 A extension lead, and more for lighter leads. Then you can stack and strap your Multi-Reels for even better protection and space minimisation!

Containing SilverSafe technology it removes taste, odours, bacteria and parasites. It has no set replacement times, and if the water slows too much, simply reverse it and flush it out, it will start working the other way.  It's compact and produces great tasting water for far longer than other similar sized models. For more information feel free to visit the BEST Water Filters website.

Why Filter My Water? 

Whilst we at Flat Out personally choose to filter all water used in our vans (pressure or tank connected); if you are tank filling it is a very, very wise thing to do.

Over time any silt or dirt particles in the water will settle and create a sediment in the bottom of your tank - which is of course almost impossible to clean! But that isn't the main reason. Council water in Australia is treated for bacteria with chlorine, but if water sits for as little as a couple of days, the chlorine will evaporate. Now if bacteria or other nasties have a chance at entering your tank (and they will because tanks need vents to fill with air as the water leaves them) you risk getting sick.  As Colin from B.E.S.T says, "It only takes one bug to ruin a whole holiday!".

We love the BEST water filters because they have so much more silver than any competitor filter, meaning the filter never goes green on the inside, nor does your tank! Fine silver particles enter your tank with the water that flows through the filter, and do not disappear like chlorine does. Silver is known for its bacteria annihilating ability, and it is also healthy for you to consume in small doses.

SKU: P17
 

25cm taste free solid hose with brass snap-on connector. This is a spout used to fill your tank when not connected via the pressure inlet. 

This is our premium grade tank filler with brass fittings for longevity (not really necessary for pressure rating with this application) and because it's so nice to match the rest of your set. 
Connect this product to your Flat Out Drink Water hose to allow easy insertion to your tank with our product P7, onto the other side of an inline filter, or any brand 12mm hose coupler.

Plated brass Pressure stop valve with fittings for B.E.S.T. Filter and tank filling
SKU: P20
 

This added convenience item is excellent for tank filling with Flat Out hoses and BEST filter. 

Run the hose from the tap to your filter, replace the other filter end with this valve part and then connect a tank filling attachment. This allows you to build up pressure in your hose before filling (needed to lay it in a way to make it then flow) and then when you are finished filling you can easily switch off flow before going back to the tap. ...read more


The 3/4 BSP end fits directly into the BEST filter in the place of the existing fitting. Use a watermark approved threadsealant, don't use threadtape or overtighten as it will void your BEST filter warranty. Save the existing fitting as a spare. The other end meets 12mm (1/2inch) snap fitting standards to fit onto any other hose snap fitting, such as our tank-filling attachment (P17) or one that you make for yourself. Here's a little video we made on how to use it.

Oops, my hose length fell in the drink! That's ok, just rinse it off so it doesn't get crusty in storage. Salt water will not harm your hose.
