Hose Care Tips

To help prevent kinking and prolong the life of your hose:

  • Before using a new hose, straighten it and untwist the coils until the hose lays flat.
  • After each use, straighten and untwist the hose before coiling it. Do not store the hose with kinks in it.
  • Always coil your hose in the same direction — either clockwise or counterclockwise.
  • Store the hose on a hose reel for easier coiling.
  • Drain the hose as you coil it.
  • Drain the hose prior to freezing temperatures and store under cover.

Note: To attach a nozzle or other watering accessory to your Featherweight Hose, grip the hose with one hand just below the hose guard and turn the fitting on the accessory with your other hand until it’s tight.

Didn't last

By Victo

from seattle, wa

I was happy to get this hose and I have had it 1.5 seasons. Today I noticed all these bulges and then poof, out shoots the water! I really wanted it to work. I think featherweight is too light for the pressure in most houses. i will go with one of the other light hoses GS sells.Those are light and don't kink, this one did kink.
2 stars cuz it WAS light.

              Best Uses

                Purchased this guy in the 100 foot to reach most of the back yard. It's super light which makes running out to all comers of the gardens easy. The violet color is great for knowing where the hose is at all times (esp when mowing). I wrap it up on the hose butler sold on this site and it's easy to wrap & unload.

                      Overall I am very pleased with this hose. I like the quality and ease-of-use due to its light weight. I didn't give it a "5 Star" because it does kink at times. Not as much as our previous hose but it still kinks.

                      Pros

                      • Easy to use
                      • Good For Arthritis
                      • Lightweight

                      Cons

                      • Still Kink Occasionally

                      Best Uses

                      • Elderly Gardeners
                      • Smaller Gardens
                      • Those With Arthritis
                      • Those With Low Endurance

                      Bought these for my elderly parents who are still in pretty good shape but were previously using very heavy contractor-grade hoses, which were hard to bend and tough to lift. These smaller hoses are great, better for their intended uses (a small urban backyard garden). My only complaint is they kink more than I would like, despite my carefully uncoiling and untwisting them when they first arrived per instructions. Still, not a big deal and even I enjoy using them more because it's not such an ordeal to take them down (especially the 100-foot one) and put them back.

                          light enough, but could not stop a slow leak at nozzle attachment. I added a second washer in an attempt to stop the drip, but it did not stop.

                          Best Uses

                            I have two long runs(75' &100') of hose in my yard to augment the drip irrigation. As I have gotten older and my back problem has gotten worse, it became a dreaded chore to drag these heavy hoses around the yard.
                            My garden is a place of joy and filled with dahlias. Dragging the heavy hoses was cutting into my garden joy. That was unacceptable to me.
                            I bought these lightweight hoses to solve the problem. And they did! I thought they would be flimsy and not long lasting. I was sure I would puncture them. Boy was I wrong. They are perfect! Easy to drag around and quite sturdy. They show no damage even when I run them over with the wheelbarrow or garden cart. Plus, how cool is it to have purple hoses? I love them and definitely recommend them.

                              Only using this hose to water my containers, while the hose is certainly lightweight, it feels a bit thin and there are leaks at both ends where the hose connects to the spigot as well as at the other end where it connects to the spray wand. I have checked the washer rings - look ok. Thought the price was a bit high for the quality.
