by Hosezzle


Lightweight and a great length for our yard

This is the second expandable hose that I have ordered from Amazon. I wanted to get a longer one for my husband since the first one just wasn’t long enough to get all of the jobs done that he needed to get done in the back yard.

75 expandable hoseAdvantages:
* 75 ft long
* Light weight, much easier for my husband’s bad back
* Does expand and contract as stated
* Does not leak
* Brass fittings, much better than what came on our first expandable hose
* Includes mid-grade nozzle that has 7 spray patterns
* This will connect to our other expandable hose that we already have

Disadvantages:
* I was hoping that this would work for our RV also, but it is not for potable water. Potable means you can drink it. Nonpotable means you should not drink it. I wish they would have put that in the product description since a lot of people who have RVs would love to have a hose like this one. There is a disclosure in the box though that clearly states you should not drink from this. Some of the reasons it gives are standard for any hose, but it does leave it open to questions so I would not recommend it at all for RV use, unless you need an outside hose separate from your water hose. If it was for Potable water, it should be clearly stated, and this is not.
* This hose will need a lot of care that you might not be used to having to do with a regular garden hose. It should be drained and put away after every use, somewhere out of the sun where it can lie flat.

We have only had this hose for a few weeks and used it a handful of times. I am hesitant to wholeheartedly endorse it since it hasn’t even been used a whole season yet. A garden hose is something that will take more uses than this one has had to really be sure that it is durable. So far it has been great. If anything happens with the hose to change my opinion of it, I will certainly update my review at that time.
