Reinforced Suction Hose with Filter Clear 7m
Does what it says on the tin! The one way valve works well, allowing priming of the pump. Hose is transparent, which is good, as it allows any air bubbles to be seen. The plastic connector assembly is a bit flimsy, especially when fitting and removing hose from pump. Assembled with worm drive hose clips, so at least it's fairly easy to fix it!

Suction hoses need to be straight. They should not curl and should not cause airlocks.
This hose would NOT uncurl, and would therefore always have airlocks.
I tried for more than an hour and gave up.
I have the Erbauer surface pump and will need to buy some heavy rubber suction hose.

Good value for money
I searched the Internet looking for a replacement suction hose for our well pump that can supplied with one way valve and suitable connection to the installed centrifugal pump. Screwfix was the only supplier that I could find that had what appeared to be what I needed at the right length of 10m. The hose was just what I required and fitted the existing connector on my pump. The only downside is that the plastic inlet valve isn't heavy enough to keep the pipe from sitting on the surface and you do need a brick to weight it down. The pipe is quite stiff and ideally needs to be left in the sun for a short time to soften it for uncoiling. Overall very pleased with this product.
