Garden Hose Reviews

A garden hose is a flexible tube, used to carry water, along with a number of common attachments available for the end of the hose, such as sprayers and sprinklers (used to concentrate water at one point or spread it over a large area). The hoses are usually attached to a hose spigot. Typically made out of synthetic rubber or soft plastic, reinforced with an internal web of fibers, garden hoses are connected using a male/female thread connection.

Garden Hoses Types
Garden hoses come in various types. They are available in different diameters, the standard being ½ inch, suitable for most of the gardens. The garden hoses come in a wide range of materials, including a kink resistant, UV resistant and one that stays flexible in cold weather. Reinforced hoses are also available for extra tough condition

Buying Garden Hoses
While buying a garden hose, for your garden, you must see to it that your garden hose satisfies these three essential requirements:

  • Choose such garden hoses that have brass connectors, as these fittings are the best in preventing water leaks and hold up well to everyday use in the yard or garden, and also would never rust or rot out.
  • Always get a water hose, which has 6 inch kink guards; as such guards would prevent your hose from kinking when it's pulled out from the faucet.
  • Keep a strict eye on the price range. Hoses can vary widely in price, but expect to spend about $20-30 for a good quality, 50-foot hose.
  • Get a water hose according to the way you would store it.

Storing Garden Hoses
In spite of being one of the most valuable tools for a gardener, it is frequently neglected during the growing season. For maintain its shape and quality all the year round, you must not only store it properly, but also maintain it each time you use it. Here are a few tips for storing and maintaining your garden hose:

  • Get a good quality hose, so as to coil it correctly, resist kinking and deliver water better than cheap plastic hose.
  • After finishing its use, drain all of the water from it, as water left inside it, may heat during hot summer days, causing ruptures to the material.
  • Coil the hose to store it at the end of the day to prevent kinks, and always store it off of the ground. Look for a quality hose reel and install it on an inside wall of garage, or on the outside wall of the house. Never store hose on the ground as they can develop fungus and then eventually rot.
  • To prevent insects from getting inside hose, connect the male and female connectors together when the hose is not being used.
