I am looking for a really good lifetime warranty garden hose. I bought one last year from Home Depot with a lifetime warranty and had to use the warranty about a year later. Recommendations ??? Thanks, Ellis

Well, that was embarrassing. I was watching the Project Farm video testing and evaluating work boots before I read your Tool Talk question. I read a few more questions on Tool Talk before I went back to respond to yours. I should know better than to interrupt my own train of thought, such as it is. One saving grace is that the video about work boots is interesting and entertaining, even though it's irrelevant to what you asked.

The guy who does excellent product evaluation videos on YouTube on his channel called Project Farm did a comparison of work boots earlier this month. He did testing on about half a dozen well known brands ranging in price from $30 to over $200. I found it very informative, and extremely well thought out, as almost all of his product reviews are.

All of our hoses, save for one, are Gardena. The first hose we bought about 20 years ago & the newest hose is half that age. All are still as soft & pliable as the day they were delivered. I haven't one complaint about those hoses or any of the other hose/sprayer/sprinkler/micro drip/etc. offerings from them. There aren't any lifetime warranties (I think the hoses are 15y). Not really worried, as these hoses have already paid for themselves. If you're wondering about the odd duck in the bunch, it's 5 years old & petrified. That's fine by me. The hose gets used on the power washer & doesn't suck tight like the others would.

I was doing some cleaning up along a fence row back in the spring and pulled out a black rubber one that had to have been there for 25 years. I was going to just throw it away but then needed one so I tried it. It still works like new.

Ellis, I've got 2 hoses hanging on my hydrants year round. One is red and I hate it: very stiff, kinks real easy, and never rolls out, or up easy. Over 20 years old. The other is green-I think I bought it at Meijer's in Cold Springs. Never hardly kinks, Fairly flexible, easy to roll, or unroll. I wish I could tell you more, but that green hose is the best. Also over 20+yrs old. Mark.

I don't know of a hose that won't kink. Even steel line will kink if you bend it short enough. If before you pull it tight just twist the hose a turn or 2 and it will usually come uncurled where it would kink. I would put a hydrant in closer to the watering job so the hose is not so long. I don't know of any hoses that will last a lifetime and most will last several years or more. Dad has some that must be close to 20 years old made of that green cheap vinyl or plastic stuff. Will break if bent when cold out.

The best hose I have ever used is one that came from a fire reel , the sort that sits in a metal box in Public buildings, shopping centres and factories . It was old when I got it and it has sat outside in the orchard at the farm in blazing sun and Winter frost for six or eight years now . It never kinks and remains fairly supple , the nozzle is a quality piece of work as well . Its black as well , doesnt look like rubber, slightly shiny surface with shallow ribs along the length .

I recommend Gilmour 824001-1001 Flexogen Heavy Duty Watering Garden Hose. I bought mine 10 years ago and last fall it sprang a leak. I contacted Gilmour and they sent me a new hose no questions asked. Not bad for a 10-year old hose.

Don't know about the warranty, but bought a black rubber hose at HD probably 5 years ago, it has heavy machined brass fittings, 3/4 inch hose ID.

I keep it on a crank up hose reel, which stops the tangling and 90% of the kinking. No problems with it so far.

The next step up would be commercial grade, which won't be found at the big box stores and will be very expensive.

The best hose I have ever seen is Gates red hose. The mill where I worked bought it in huge rolls 1/2 inch id and would cutoff whatever was needed, usually at least 50 feet. It got used once, usually for water, and tossed out. I got a bunch of it, Put regular hose ends on it and am still using it with no leaks after at least 25 years. Never gets taken inside.

Lately I've been buying the black hose like you would put on a sprayer. Been able to get whatever length and diameter I needed from my farm parts supplier and put the ends on it. Holds up way better and dosent kink like store bought hose does.

I buy 3/4 inch 75 foot commercial hoses from Menards. Save receipt and outside cover. They will stand behind them providing you don't run over them with mower blades spinning. Driving over them with a car or tractor will damage them too.

For the most part, 150 feet of hose will get to most places I need water.

I've still got a couple of the black hoses with yellow stripe I got at Sam's years ago. 3/4 inch and they have held up well. One got run over by the mower and I spliced it. Pulled one yesterday from a coil on the ground to water some tries and it did kink but it flexes right back without a permanent kink like the vinyl ones. Bot a couple of the tan hoses from HF a couple years ago and they are holding up good and don't kink.

I bought a neon green Flexilla hose from Amazon this spring, and it doesnt kink.
The jury is out on life expectancy though, havent had it long enough.

Look up Eley hose reels. They have a rubber hose and a polyurethane hose. I have both. The rubber hose does kink but not bad. The polyurethane hose doesn't kink but is stiffer for winding on a hose reel. Between the two I like the poly hose better. The hoses and the carts are pretty nice but the price isn't. It's the only ones i've found that last anymore.

I have 3 of the black rubber ones that look like heater hose. I think they came from Sears and are probably at least 15 years old. They sit outside a lot and are great. Not 100% kink proof but if you yank hard enough on any knot you can kink it.

I like the black rubber commercial grade hoses. Have two 50ft. made in USA and lifetime replacement brand new in the shed but since I dont save receipts it dont count. Some of the others around the two properties are at least 10yrs. old. I thank I got my monies worth.

All hoses kink or as stiff as cardboard, especially in winter. I picked up the black rubber hose and while it still kinks, I can use it in cold weather without problems. Lifetime warranty? I believe it has one. Concerned about it? Not really. Cheaper hoses have the lifetime warranty with jacked prices to cover that warranty.

I have bought three different garden hoses from Lowe's this year $75.00 to $30.00. All 'guaranteed not to kink. Baloney!!!! Every one of them kink. The $75.00 one was ZeroG, fabric on the outside, soft tubing inside. The only way that hose was functional was to put a spray nozzle on it, then turn the water on high enough to make the hose hard. If you didn't do it that way, it would kink like crazy. The other two were not as bad, but still kink. If you find a good hose that won't kink, let me know.

Today's Featured Article - A Lifetime of David Brown Tractors - by Samuel Kennedy. I was born in 1950 and reared on my family’s 100 acre farm. It was a fairly typical Northern Ireland farm where the main enterprise was dairying but some pigs, poultry and sheep were also kept. Potatoes were grown for sale and oats were grown to be used for cattle and horse feeding. Up to about 1958 the dairy cows were fed hay with some turnips and after that grass silage was the main winter feed. That same year was the last in which flax was grown on the farm. Flax provided the fibre which w ... [Read Article]
