Flexon Commercial Premium Rubber Hose: Product Review


With crush-proof solid brass couplings, high burst strength, and a 10-year warranty, this heavy-duty rubber garden hose is built to last. At 9.4 lbs it’s heavier than a regular hose, but it stands up well to frequent use (even being dragged over abrasive surfaces) and kinks less than most. Available in red, black and green, this is a hose that I unequivocally recommend. Continue Reading


Flexzilla Hose With SwivelGrip (HFZG550YWS): Product Review


The Flexzilla hose with SwivelGrip (model HFZG550YWS, not to be confused with HFZG550YW which doesn’t have the SwivelGrip ends) is top quality, high tech hose that’s truly kink free and built to last.

Aeroflex™ Expanding Garden Hose: Product Review


I am pleasantly surprised how much I like this hose and I would absolutely purchase it for my garden use. It really is kink free, lightweight but very durable, and easy to coil or store away. Plus, unlike other expandable hoses, it stretches to a full-size 5/8 inch diameter and 50 feet in length. With a 5-year warranty and no signs of wear after almost a year of extensive use in the garden, it’s clearly Continue Reading


Dramm Brass Hose Swivel (13852): Product Review


If you’ve ever tried to wrestle a heavy hose across the yard and then untangle the kinks before you can start watering the garden, then you’ll love the Dramm brass hose swivel. This heavy-duty connector goes between the hose and the nozzle, sprinkler or spigot. It rotates 360 so the hose stays put while you hold the nozzle or move the sprinkler. No more kinks, no more twisting to straighten out the hose, no more Continue Reading
