Okay, okay, I know what you guys are thinking! What in the world is a water hose doing in our holiday gift guide?!?! Well, guys, this is not your normal everyday water hose! When you are super outdoorsy like we are, and constantly doing projects around the house, you start thinking outside the box when it comes to holiday gifts! One thing that we can not seem to have enough of around here are water hoses, and especially GOOD quality water hoses.
We do so many outdoor projects around the house, we are constantly using a water hose for something. Whether it be dragging a hose across our one acre backyard to water the garden, washing the car, cleaning off the deck, or letting the kids run in the sprinkler, a water hose is constantly being used around here. However, we typically buy the cheapest hoses we can find, and it shows. They are constantly leaking, breaking, kinking, getting run over with the mower, or chewed up by the dog. It's super frustrating to need to use the hose, and then find out that it is not going to work!
That's why we were so excited to be able to review the new Gilmour Flexogen Super Duty Water Hose. These hoses are incredible. They are super flexible, and also durable, standing up to any test you might have around the yard. Here is some more info about it:
Patented 8-layer construction with oxygen-infused foam layer adds flexibility and durability while keeping weight down
· Reinforced spiral and knit-wrap nylon inner core helps reduce kinks and increase burst strength
· Crush and corrosion resistant brass couplings
· O-rings inside couplings provide a durable, tight seal
· Also available in 25 feet, 50 feet, 75 foot and 100 feet
· Lifetime Warranty
Seriously guys, this is a cool water hose. I can drag it around the gate to the front yard, and it bends and curves without kinking or breaking. It's also super lightweight which is great when I am lugging it up to the garden or down to the fence line. The outer cover is designed to be protected against UV, weather and temperature damage, which is really cool. Another really cool thing about this hose that you are not going to find with other water hoses is the use of the brass couplings and the o-rings. These really help to prevent leaking and damage.
However, probably my favorite thing about this hose is something you wouldn't expect, and is something most of us would probably never think of. Gilmour water hoses are compatible with Quick Connect fittings that make twisting, turning, and switching out hoses a thing of the past. Here's more:
Say goodbye to endless twisting and switch out your watering tools in seconds. Heavy-duty Quick Connectors provide an easy snap-on/snap-off connection between your hose and other watering tools. Simply attach the female connector to the end of your hose and the male connector to your sprinkler, nozzle or second hose. Then pop them together for a tight seal that lasts, use after use.
Seriously, this is a game changer when it comes to yard work! I would never think that these little connectors would be such a big deal, but trust me, they are! These are sold separately from the hoses, but I promise, they are worth it! I'm telling you guys, if you have a lot going on around the house, you are going to want one of these water hoses!
