The Flex-Able Hose is a lightweight, compact hose that expands and contracts with water pressure, making it easy to quickly water patio plants and hanging baskets, as well as clean decks, gutters and other outdoor spaces. The hose automatically expands with water flow. After water is shut off and released, it contracts to its original shape for compact storage. The Flex-Able Hose delivers a high-volume spray and will not kink or tangle, and includes a versatile, seven-pattern spray nozzle. Hose is made from double-dipped latex surrounded by durable Dacron® fabric. Fittings are made from ABS plastic.

    Flex Hose is great for for inside use

    By Gardener

    from Sterling Heights MI

    Pros

    • Better For Inside Use
    • Temporary
    • Works As Specified

    Cons

    • Not To Be Left Outside

    Best Uses

    • Best for temporary use

    This is a really good hose to make a quick connect outside, but you do not want to leave it out for obvious reasons . . . Its made of fabric. However for inside use it's perfect. Here's a great idea for those of you who own waterbeds. The Flex hose is a good way to fill the bladder without having to drag in an outside hose that may be partially frozen, (in winter) or even dirty. The flex hose is long enough to go from the bathroom faucet to the bedroom waterbed without problems. It even has a shut-off valve to control water flow.
    The best part is when you're done, it shrivels up to fit inside a little box in the cupboard.

    Take this off the market

    By Passionate gardener

    from South Carolina

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Doesn't Damage Plants
    • Light Weight

    Cons

    • Lasts Only A Few Months
    • Not durable
    • Poor quality

    Best Uses

      Initially thought this hose was a great invention. Bought 2 to replace expensive traditional hoses, only to have to replace them again. This hose is extremely light weight and easy to use, but after only a few months use they fell apart. Not only did I pay for 2 of these hoses, but needed to replace them with a more traditional, durable hose that I threw away thinking this would take the place of my old, but serviceable hose. A hose should be expected to last more than half a season. Very disappointed in this product. Feel I have been had.

      Best I have seen

      By Rainbow Moon

      from WA State

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Good Quality 'fabric'
      • Includes Spray Nozzle
      • Pleasing color

      Cons

      • None so far

      Best Uses

      • Water For Animals
      • Watering Veggies

      After reading the review in the catalog I decided to try this hose, as I had seen several brands and was concerned about how long they would last. This is one of the best looking I have seen - as stated in the catalog. Time will tell. The price is a bit higher than some, but with the 'free' spray nozzle, it's about the same as others.

      Just my style

      This hose is just what I needed for my baloney. I use it for watering my plants and hosing off my baloney. It is the perfect size and sooo easy to use. I hate rubber hoses.

      Cons

        Such a great product. Contracts to an incredibly small size. Stores anywhere. So easy to use too - no more coiling and twisting a heavy dirty hose.

        Would not recommend

        By Container Gardener

        from Syracuse, NY

        Seems like a good idea in that it is lightweight and easy to carry. The problem is that the actual hose material is not very durable and develops leaks/holes very easily and in some cases blows out. It also seems to decrease the water pressure. Would not recommend for anyone who needs to do heavy watering.

        Would have given it four stars, except..

        By Farmgrl

        from Memphis, TN

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

        • Easy Roll Up And Storage
        • Lightweight

        Cons

        • Gets Holes In It Easily

        Best Uses

          I love this hose because it is so light weight and easy to roll up and store. However, I've had two now and both of them have sprung leaks after about 8 weeks of use. I will continue to use one because it makes watering so much easier, but I wish the manufacturer would use materials that last longer.

              I needed only 25 feet, but was hard to make it reach, so I really needed 50 feet. However is light weight, and easy to use.

              Great Product

              By Denise the gardener

              from Sterling Heights, MI

              Verified Buyer

              Pros

              • Light
              • Unkinkable

              Cons

              • Expensive

              Best Uses

                My husband has been looking for this in our area since mid-summer. Luckily, I saw it in your email. We bought the 50' and now ordered the longer one as well. So nice to not have to lug heavy hoses around that are constantly kinking and stopping the water flow. Great product - thanks for having it.
