What is Suction?

Pulling or delivering of water from water source to the surface level is called suction. This needs specially designed pipes since the water is pulled against the gravity. That is why the Kothari Group, manufacturers of the best quality Hose pipes, suction pipes, column pipes, HDPE coil stands out in the market for reliability.

Why needed different Pipe for Suction?

The suction pipes are designed to sustain different pressures as per the different water sources. In Irrigation the regular PVC pipes are designed for the limited velocity (1.5 m/s) to have a laminar flow & hence they are used for ground operations. For bringing the water from Well or Bore or from other sources against gravity, the pipe velocity increases beyond 1.5 m/s, up to 3 m/s & creates the turbulent flow. Hence suction pipes needs to be high quality, flexible & capable of sustaining internal & external pressure acting on it.

For Well:

Usually we use monoblock or submersible pump in well.

Usually suction Hose Pipe are used as the suction Pipe in the well.

Kothari Suction Hose Pipe:

Used as the suction pipes in open well with monoblock pump or with submersible pump.

  • It's Non-corrosive, anti-rust, electrolytic, anti-clogging and hence ensures clean and safe water supply.
  • Light weight and easy to transport
  • Tough, Strong & durable pipe for extending Longest life
  • Easy to install or handle
  • Allows smooth water flow that reduces head losses & hence reduces the expenses of electricity
  • Comes in 3 different types as per our depth of use viz Regular, medium & Super
For Bore-Well:

Usually bore well submersible pump or Jet pump is used in Bore-well. We recommend Kothari HDPE Coil or Kothari Column Pipes are used. In Borewell the pipe have to sustain external pressure of the pump & its own & the internal water pressure.

Kothari HDPE Coil:

For small bore-well depth up to 125 to 150 meters, it is recommended to use HDPE Coil. The depth of loose soil & other bore parameters also decides the recommendations of HDPE Coil in bore-well. Kothari HDPE Coil is available from 1” to 5” diameters in different pressure ratings from 4 Kg/cm2 to 20 Kg/cm2
