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.

good, not perfect

Pros

    Cons

    • Slow Drip Constant Even

    Best Uses

      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.

      Perfect solution

      By jan

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Easy to move
      • Fun colors
      • Strong

      Cons

      • Pricey but worth it

      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.

        Pricey but lightweight

        By mefport

        from Long Island, NY

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Lightweight
        • Love the color

        Cons

        • Fittings
        • Price

        Best Uses

          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.

                  I have arthritis and it hurts to lift or drag heavy things. That is why I have 2 of the featherweight hoses. I love this hose and will never be without it in my garden.

                  • From Gardening To Cleanin

                  This hose is light weight and harly ever kinks. I love how I can hold the hose caddy with one hand and crank all 100 ft up in seconds with the other hand. It is light enough to carry around to the other side of the house if I need to. I will never buy a different hose and caddy again.

                      i love it's thin design which makes it lightweight and easy to move around. I love it but I should have bought a longer hose. I changed the place where I put the hose and it works well.

                            I use this hose to water my fenced-in container garden. I love it because it is light enough to be maneuvered over the fence and around all of the different containers and water fountain. Another plus is that it can be easily drained of water and coiled up when I'm finished using it. So much better than a standard garden hose!

                                  This hose is so much easier to use than the heavy ones it replaced, and the dark green color disappears in the landscape just as I wanted it to. I ordered one, tried it out, and then ordered two more. A real winner!

                                      Hose is too stiff, definitely is "not featherweight", and leaks too easily from the attachment area to water spout. Requires repetetive tightening to the water spout. Due to stiffness, it's very difficult to manually rewind hose after each use to fit into a hose holder. I already owned a lightweight hose, which I really like, and thought when I ordered this one that I was getting the same type of hose already owned. However, not so!! I was going to return it but found out it would cost me about as much to mail it back as what I had paid for it. Wow, what a mistake I made with this purchase! Needless to say, I'm extremely disappointed with this purchase!
