PATENT WOVEN HOSE, WITHOUT SEAM,
for
CONVEYING FLUIDS UNDER PRESSURE ANY DISTANCE,
when applied to
FORCE PUMPS, FIRE and GARDEN ENGINES,
&c.
The Patent Woven Hose, without seam, is water-tight, and resists the pressure of the most powerful force pumps; it may be made of any diameter or length desired; it requires no trouble to be kept in good condition; its price is considerably less than one half the cost of rivetted leather,piping; and is adapted as well to horticultural purposes as to the various uses to which leather hose is generally applied. For tropical climates it will be found invaluable, its superiority over leather being so manifest, that where the Woven Hose requires no particular care for its preservation, and receives no injury from the influence of the sun, the leather is only preserved from immediate destruction by the continued application of greasy matter, which is attended with much expense ; and should any neglect take place in adopting that precaution, it would be rendered useless in a very short time. The Patent Hose has undergone many severe trials of its application to various purposes. Her Majesty's Board o( Ordnance have tested the efficacy of its resisting power, and several of the principal fire police establishments in England have adopted it for the use of their engines or force pumps; the St. George's, the City of Dublin, the Pacific Steam Packet or Navigation Companies, &c.* have it on board of their ships, and it may now be found in constant use at various other places, such as water-works, and some of the railway stations, as well as at several breweries, and the principal horticulturists.
FIRE BUCKETS
Are also manufactured from this Hose, which, for their portability, strength, and lightness, are far superior to leather or copper. When stowed away, twelve Buckets do not occupy more than a space of one cubic foot.
