Additional Information

Exclusive | Enjoy Ultra-Easy Watering with Featherweight Slim Hoses — Lightweight, Durable and Toxin-Free!

  • Easy-to-use, heavy-duty hose is amazingly lightweight and flexible
  • Toxin-free — no lead, BPA or phthalates
  • 45% lighter than traditional garden hoses!

Tired of dragging heavy hoses? Lighten up your watering routine with our ultra-lightweight hoses — the 25' hose weighs just 2.6 lbs! The hoses remain flexible, easy to maneuver, and kink-resistant, even in chilly weather. And they're free from the toxins found in many hoses, so they're safe for people and pets. Nylon hose guards minimize kinking at ends and the chrome-plated zinc fittings are leakproof. The textured surface offers a sure grip.

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.

We installed the hose in our solarium. It works great. It's so nice and light that it is easy to use. It doesn't weigh me down like standard hoses do.

Where have you been my whole life! Highest quality and amazingly light. Looking forward to seeing how it holds up in our 4 season climate. We have a neighbor that uses these exclusively. One neighborly watering while they were gone and we were sold! Might appear a tad pricey, but it is worth the investment!

Garden hose

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

This one actually will kink. The one I bought a few years ago won't kink. Still a really nice hose. Light weight, pinches off completely and you can arrange it so the kinks are OK. I have one kind of prominent kink in the hose.

Pros

  • Ease of storage and movement

Cons

  • Kinking

Best Uses

    Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

    Bought several lengths and replaced several old heavier hoses. The new ones take far less space and are easier to store. My only complaint is that these new light hoses do kink a lot and need to be straightened out before each use. But this disadvantage is more than offset by the advantages.
