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.

                  I just threw out my 5th X-Pro expandable hose after it burst and dreaded buying one of those heavy, cumbersone rubber hoses...when I got your catalog and saw your durable, lightweight hose. I bought one for the front yard; one for the back. I'm thrilled!! They are indestructable, don't tangle and are as light as the catalog says they are. Thank you Gardeners!!

                      I like the weight and look of the hose but don't know what to do with
                      leaking at the faucet and around connector. The black rubber washer is
                      in place! Thank you.

                      I'm almost 80 years old and my old 100' hose is really too heavy to lug around. These hoses from Gardner's Supply are lightweight and wonderful to carry around!

                          I like it because I can carry it without having to drag it across the lawn. However, I feel that
                          it could be less expensive if sent by mail in a smaller box.

                              Not being one to only write 'nasty' reviews, I wanted to be sure to follow-up to a poor review I wrote on 10/9/14 for these hoses. In response to my less-than-favorable review, I received an email from Gardener's Customer Service asking that I phone to discuss/resolve. My Customer Service representative was George and he was MORE than helpful and very polite. Gardener's offered to reimburse me for the three hoses that had failed, even though I discarded them and did not return them (I explained that they were not only cumbersome to box up and return but also dripping....not fun to mess with). He was very understanding and supportive -- and I could not be happier with the credit they've offered. I have placed numerous orders for various items in the past and, as I explained to George, have always been very happy with the quality of all items. This just wasn't one of those instances but Gardener's has certainly made it right and, in doing so, has ensured that I will continue to be a returning customer. THANK YOU, George!

                                Purchased this hose for elderly parents. It is perfect for them to lift and move. They had me purchase another one because their lawn man mowed over it.so be careful it is easily shredded compared to heavier hoses.it is a great idea for anyone tired of lugging heavy hoses around.

                                Best Uses

                                  Earlier in the year, I purchased either 4 or 5 of these hoses, in 50' and 100' lengths. While I was first drawn to the hose because of the color which matched our exterior brick very well (taupe),I ultimately chose this particular hose because of the glorious "non-kinking" reviews it got, as well as the promised light weight. While this hose IS lightweight, I can't begin to emphasize how TERRIBLY it kinks. In fact, it was so bad that my husband wouldn't touch it again after the first use. He got extremely frustrated with it. I have more patience than he but have finally reached my limit with the kinking as well. If that were the only problem, I wouldn't be so disappointed with this (fairly hefty-invested) purchase. But, not even into six months of use, all but one developed bubbles on the outer material, then split open in those areas. My 50' hose that I use to water container plants on our deck (light use) developed FIVE such places. Considering that these hoses were not inexpensive, I am extremely disappointed with their quality. Have been a GS customer but will certainly give more thought into any future purchases.

                                    This is the first light weight hose I have ever tried and I have been pleasantly surprised. The hose does not kink if used on a hose reel that rolls the hose our easily. Kinking occurs when using a stationary hose reel.
