Detroit Tool & Supply Expandable Hose Review

ABOUT ME:
I enjoy gardening and working in the yard. I water the flowers and grass frequently during the summer. I was looking for a hose that I didn't have to spend as much time unraveling and then winding up again...especially when it's 90 degrees outside. I also wanted a hose that I could hide, because the hose spigot is right next to the front door. It's unsightly to leave a hose laying there and it's a pain to take it around the back of the house every time I was finished.

MY REVIEW:
I really like this hose for the convenience factor. It's a quick way to water the plants. It doesn't take up much room and it hides away in a container with a lid very easy. I'm not sure I would leave this hose out in the winter or even exposed to the sun on a daily basis. It may be able to handle it, but it's not something I would recommend. The following is a list of pros and cons I've noted during my use with this hose.

PROS:
+ Lightweight
+ Space Saving
+ Doesn't Kink
+ Brass Fittings
+ Easily Hides
+ Convenience

CONS:
- No shut-off valve on hose
- Slightly less water volume/minute
- The hose end goes wild if you set it down with the water turned on

UNKNOWNS:
- As durable as a traditional hose?

CONCLUSION: This hose is a great addition to my collection. It's not great at everything, but it definitely has a place in my yard. I hope my review was helpful in your decision!

DISCLAIMER: I received this hose free for purposes of testing. The opinions noted are based on my personal use of this product.
