Expandable Hose Review


I put my expandable hose to work in my yard about three weeks ago, when spring finally showed up here in the northern states.  I happily used my hose all about the yard, and loved how far I could reach with so little weight and no tangles, coils, knots or kinks.  I was so in love with my hose I was showing and telling friends and family.  Then... it broke!  The inner chamber burst between my filling buckets, and I am now left with a fabric tube for about 10 feet between the two rubber inner-chamber pieces that separated.  And this at normal hose pressure on a spring day.  So, needless to say I am quite disappointed now and totally bummed.

This hose runs around $50 on right now, and there is no way I would spend that kind of money for a hose with this kind of reputation.  I am glad I got it to try free or I would be pretty angry at that kind of money loss.  I guess this is a buyer beware...

I have hoses all over my yard from spring to fall, packing them away for winter since they get hard and impossible to flex, wind or use once cold or frozen.  Most years, I end up buying a new hose at some point because the year prior they got kinked, twisted, damaged by a lawn mower or sprung a leak.  I have so often wished for a better solution to the typical garden hose.  When the chance arose for me to try out an expandable hose, even though I was skeptical, I figured it couldn't hurt to give it a shot!
This expandable hose is 33 feet coiled and expands to 100 feet when water is turned on and allowed to flow through it.  Once the user is finished using the hose, it returns to it's coiled 33 foot state on its own as water is turned off.  It is so lightweight and easy to carry around, not bulky or awkward as the typical garden hose is. It also has a thick, sturdy feeling nozzle and ends for attaching to the faucet and sprayer.
I love that I now have a solution for the winter, should I need a hose outside for something.  I can carry this hose out, and know that when I am done using it the water will drain out and I can bring it back inside without dripping water everywhere or having it freeze up and crack while waiting for water to drain.  Easy to tote around and store, I can tuck it in my car wash bucket and it is good to go each time I need without hassle.

For the nerds out there:
  • Strongest Hose Available at 100-PSI (Pounds Per Square Inch) Working Pressure
  • 300-PSI (Pounds Per Square Inch) Burst Pressure

This hose comes with a 100% money back guarantee, so you can buy risk free!

I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and un-biased review.
