FITT B-ACTIVE flexible hoses for in-ground pools – Italian ingenuity, global success
Flexible hoses for in-ground pools are not all the same. As we saw in the article Do you know how to choose a pool hose?, taking care in choosing in-ground pool hoses is a smart move that can prevent numerous problems.
The most common problem with in-ground pools is leaks in the hoses.
The main causes of ruptures are related to:
- wear over time
- external pressure from the weight of earth
- chemical agents that destroy the interior walls
- prolonged use of chlorine, which corrodes hoses from the inside
- low-quality materials
How can we solve these problems?
FITT – the Italian company specialized in producing flexible hoses for the consumer and professional market – has found the solution with FITT B-ACTIVE, the flexible hose for in-ground pools that is a strategic investment since it ensures significant savings by creating an efficient system that lasts over time. (For more information, see the article How to save on in-ground pool maintenance costs).
In fact, the features of the FITT B-ACTIVE flexible spiral hose ensure:
- the longevity of the hydraulic system
- quick, easy installation
