My Garden Provisions Expandable Garden Hose
The My Garden hose is a 50-foot expandable hose that’s lightweight and flexible. It offers supreme mobility so you can handle your watering tasks with ease. Made of a double-latex inner tube that’s protected by an outer layer of high-quality polyester, it expands up to three times its length once the water is turned on. Another added benefit is the nickel-plated, solid-brass connector that adds an extra layer of protection against rust, corrosion and leaks.
“This hose is awesome!” says an Amazon reviewer. “I have tried every garden hose out there and inevitably I end up in a one-sided verbal argument with it because it’s kinking up and I have to walk all the way back and un-kink it in 20 places. Then I turn it on and then it kinks again and it’s an absolute nightmare. This hose is super reliable. It never kinks up, the flow is great. I am so excited I’m going to order two more one for my front yard and one for the side yard. I would highly recommend this hose. I am far less stressed when I’m watering my yard or playing with my dog now. He loves it as well!”
eBoTrade Direct Garden Hose
This garden hose, made of the highest-quality materials, will not need to be replaced every year. This expandable hose features an extra-flexible polyester fabric cover that allows the water hose to expand with ease. It’s also lightweight, easy to carry, store and move. The hose starts at 25 feet and expands up to three times in length (up to 75 feet) when water goes through it.
“I really like this hose,” says an Amazon reviewer. “I have tried many in the past and they usually end up leaking. This one is a little more durable. It does not shrink as small as the others but it also seems like it will last longer. Still is very compact and I am able to fit this into a small hanging bucket I hang from my water spigot. I have been through many of these types of hoses and I think I finally found one that will last.”
Kurtvana Garden Hose
This ultra-durable and heavy-duty garden hose is made with a pipe, brass connectors, valve, nozzle and spray that won’t rust, leak, tear, rip or crack, so you can use it for years to come. The rubberized outer coating is slip-resistant. The knob features water control and a rotating bezel to easily change the water pressure and spray type. The hose quickly expands up to 75 feet with water pressure and returns in minutes to its original length when the water is turned off.
“Love this hose!” says an Amazon reviewer. “This hose gives me just what I was expecting from an expandable hose. Good quality and lightweight! It’s very compact, it expands nicely and the included nozzle works well. Also, it feels durable. It shrinks up quite a bit when the water is shut off which should make storing it a bit easier. I prefer this much more than my old rubber hose and this will work out well as a good replacement of the older one.”
Ganlikon Expandable Garden Hose
Featuring a durable, lightweight polyester outer and latex core, this garden hose is easy to use as you work your way around your yard and garden. This hose expands up to 50 feet when the water is turned on, with the hose automatically contracting in seconds when there’s no water pressure. It also has a six-spray nozzle, including jet, flat, cone shower, mist and full.
“I’ve had this hose for a year and so far it has held up much better than the typical green plastic garden hose I had before,” says an Amazon reviewer. “Plus it doesn’t kink up in that annoying way so that when you’re in the middle of washing your car, you have to go look for the source of the water stoppage. The hose also holds up well in freezing temperatures that we have in the Northeast.”
Anteko Expandable Garden Hose
Considering a major issue of expandable hoses is the joints leaking and interior water pipe bursting, it makes sense so much emphasis is put on designing newer models with superior material. This garden hose uses a super-high-tenacity fiber that efficiently protects latex pipe. It’s also capable of withstanding high temperatures (up to 140° F) and can expand up to three times its original length. It has an eight-pattern hose nozzle that includes a soaker, angle, mist, center, full, flat, shower and cone, and is equipped with a hose clamp and drawstring bag.
“I love, love, love this hose!” says an Amazon reviewer. “I bought two so that I could reach all of my gardens. Having bought the other expandable hoses when they first came out I was of course skeptical of trying yet another version. This hose is a keeper! It is very well made, as light as a feather with sturdy connectors and the sprayer rocks too!”
Waterllion Garden Hose
This 100-foot garden hose features solid 3/4-inch brass connectors, a double-latex pipe and an extra-strong fabric cover. The result is a durable, high-quality hose that prevents breakage and leakage. The garden hose comes with a nine-pattern adjustable spray nozzle. Simply twist the hose’s spray rotating ring to choose the desired pattern. It will never tangle, twist or kink.
“Wonderful hose,” says an Amazon reviewer. “I have been using these to replace all my hoses. I have an acre and many places I need to hand water every day. I am tired of regular hoses twisting. The fact that it retracts, I can pick it up, hang it or leave as a small pile left on the ground is great! Living in Arizona, water is vital in the garden, and anything that makes it more convenient is super! This product seems to work very well.”
Crenova Garden Hose
This ultra-expandable hose can go up to 100 feet when the water is on. When the water’s turned off, it automatically retracts. It will never angle, twist or kink. The hose is made with a leak-free solid 3/4-inch brass connector, is super leak- and rust-resistant and has a double-latex tube that makes it very durable. It also comes with a seven-pattern spray nozzle, including jet, shower, angle, center, mist, soaker and flat.
“I really liked this particular garden hose because the material the tubing is made out of is capable of resisting sub-freezing temperatures,” says an Amazon reviewer. “Definitely a huge step up from traditional hoses, which tend to crack under freezing weather conditions. The pressure this hose emits is insane! The product is sturdy and seems to be capable of lasting a very long time.”
CACAGOO Garden Hose
This garden hose features a double-layer latex core and polyester fabric, so it will never curl, twist, knot or leak. The expandable hose starts at 25 feet and, when the water is turned on, quickly expands to 75 feet. And, according to the manufacturer, it will last 50 percent longer than other hoses. It features superior 3/4-inch brass fittings, internal rubber gaskets and an eight-pattern hose nozzle for washing your car, watering flowers and vegetables, cleaning windows, washing your pet and more.
“This is my first flexible hose I have tried,” says an Amazon reviewer. “I was skeptical about it. Seems to be a good solution for watering my plants in the backyard. Wonderful, I love it. The hose shrinks back down and is out of the way, unlike other hoses. It has brass connections like the more expensive hoses out there as well.”
TaoTronics Garden Hose
This premium hose has dual-layer latex that makes it flexible for maneuvering all over the yard without the complications and frustrations of tangles, twists and kinks. It’s outfitted with crush-proof brass couplings and a leak-proof rubber seal. It’s a great hose for multi-use—watering plants, washing cars or showering pets. It can work with water pressures of 30 to 87 psi and water temperatures of 41° F to 113° F.
“This is a very good heavy-duty expandable garden hose,” says an Amazon reviewer. “The brass fittings are heavy and do not leak, it even comes with extra washers. The hose itself is easy to connect and store, very compact and well-designed. No more kinks and lugging heavy hoses around! The one brass end has a lever which controls the outflow of water—so much better than placing a thumb over the end! Very good quality product.”
Nifty Grower Garden Hose
This garden hose is made from high-quality, durable, leak-proof materials that ensure it will last for a long time. It features an extra-flexible polyester fabric cover that protects the double-latex inner tube and allows expanding of the garden hose up to 100 feet. The eight-pattern spray nozzle includes: rinse, flat, soaker, cone, jet, center, mist and shower, so you can take care of all your watering needs.
“I don’t expect much when it comes to garden hoses,” says an Amazon reviewer. “I was delightfully surprised with this product. This one is obviously constructed of quality materials. At 100 feet, it is long enough for all my needs. The optional sprayer is well worth the added cost. I highly recommend to anyone needing a hose/sprayer for garden, car washing, dog washing, etc.”
