I am starting this review out with a good rating. The Hose seems sturdy, well built, light weight and convenient. The sprayer nozzle works nicely there are no leaks and I have no complaints at all at this time. I have waited a couple of weeks to write this review as I know first hand that this type of hose can just all of a sudden explode for no apparent reason. I also know from first hand experience that
#1 Some of these hoses arrive with issues. (be it leaks, made cheaply etc ) This one showed up and is nicely manufactured of sturdy materials and looks good !
#2 Some times these hoses fail within the first couple of weeks.. (This one is working just fine still)
#3 You can not leave them under pressure for long periods at a time (I always turn it off and drain it so if it does fail it will not be because i abused it)
I will continue to use it and update my rating if there are any issues that arise. At this point I am happy. As for one review I read that stated that there was no warranty... Even the hoses that come with "lifetime warranty" which I have purchased more than 1...(different brands) There are conditions and hoops you have to go through to collect on that warranty and then wwhen you do get a replacement... if it blows up the same day, or when ever.. you have used your lifetime warranty .. that is right It is only warrantied 1 time and then you have to purchase a whole new hose anyway. And the "warrantied hoses are much more expensive"
IN my opinion you are better off purchasing a more economical hose, and when it breaks get a new one. The warranty is not worth the price of admission or the hoops you have to jump through to get your replacement that will break immediately. One company made me take pictures of the broken hose with the water running and send them after that it took 3 months to get the new hose which lasted a week and then they would not replace the replacement hose . And that one was VERY expensive. Not to mention that I was unaware I had to photograph the broken one and I had already thrown it in the trash. Thank goodness it was not trash day!
I will keep my rating updated with any news of the longevity and any issues .Lets keep positive thoughts and hopefully this review rating positive. !!. So far I would recommend this hose ..
