AQUAVERN - Cable Specifications


AQUAVERN cable is used as a cost effective alternative to rubber insulated cables for boreholes, drainage, dewatering, cleaning and irrigation pumping equipment. It is used on farms and in mines, dockyards, municipalities, construction operations, railways, roadworks and factories.

PVC is superior to rubber in a waterproof submersible cable. AQUAVERN cable therefore can be used for supplying power to all types of indoor and outdoor, mobile, portable and fixed pumping equipment.


High conductivity bunched flexible copper conductors, insulated and colour coded with general purpose waterproof flexible PVC. Insulated cores are twisted together and filled with PVC to give the cable a round finish. Final protection is with a tightly bonded waterproof, flexible PVC sheath.
