Best Garden Hose in the Market – Top Five Reviews

A garden hose is basically a water conveyor tube, which is also called a hosepipe. Buying the right garden hose can be very tricky as there is a wide category of hosepipes from different manufacturers.

Simple qualities like color, shades, and prices tend to influence the purchasing decision, which is unfortunate because they make the buyers overlook important aspects such as material, hose diameter, length, couplings, flexibility, and burst pressure.

A good hosepipe is made of either rubber or vinyl. Rubber is stronger than vinyl. In addition, for additional durability; a mesh can be reinforced in any of them. For drinking water, garden hose with a polyurethane material should be purchased. Hosepipe diameter is important because it determines water flow. The bigger a hosepipe diameter is, the more water it delivers quickly. The length of the garden hose should be concomitant with the size of the garden. Couplings are fittings that attach to the sprinklers and the nozzles. Metal couplings are the best. It is also imperative to consider a hosepipe flexibility as it makes storage easier as well as its burst point.

In this article, I shall review the top five garden hose that I have purchased and used and exemplify clearly why they are simply the best, and why they have they have attracted the five star/positive customer review on Amazon.

SHADE & BEYOND HOSEPIPE

The Shade & Beyond Hosepipe is fifty feet. long but is also expandable to three times its original length, and retracts back making storage easier. It has solid brass endings for attaching to nozzle and sprinklers. Brass endings are stronger and durable, unlike plastic ones. It has a very high burst pressure of between 58psi to 175psi.

The material of its make is polyester, latex, a modern material that makes it not only lightweight but also easy to carry while performing several chores. This makes the pipe perfect for garden watering, and car washing. The hosepipe is also lined with rubber which protects it against kinking and bursting, easily.

GROWFAST GARDEN HOSE

The Growfast Garden Hose is the fifth best garden hose that have stormed the market, and which I bought latest.

It has the features of the expansion, common with leading hose pipes, enabling storage, and has solid brass fittings at the end. The probable difference is that it has an outer and an inner rubber lining for faster cleaning, besides being made of double latex, and being lined internally with brass. This has pushed its durability a notch higher. It is also very light to use. The use of double latex core makes it fit for use in all weather conditions.
