Water Transfer Flume & Channel Stops

Water Flume Tube is a low cost, low pressure, high volume method of moving water.

Water flume is made of a high grade polyethylene and is available in 100mm (4”), 150mm (6”), 230mm (9”) and 305mm (12”) diameters (inflated size).

When installing it is important to unpack and roll the flume out in position across the paddock, while doing this take care to avoid damaging the flume on sharp or abrasive objects.

If T-joints or elbows are required it is best to fit them at this time. Do this by slipping the flume over the PVC joint and binding with an agri-tape before securing with a hose clamp.

Should more than one length of flume be needed insert the upstream length of flume into the downstream length and secure with tape. As the flume expands when filled the flume will pressure seal together.

Now you can attach the fluming to the pump and secure with an end clamp.

Water pressure MUST be built up slowly to avoid over stressing the film.
