Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by momof2kidz Lead free garden watering
Even though its a lead free hose, I still probably wouldn't drink from it, but I like the fact that I'm watering my vegetable garden lead free. This is a really sturdy hose with good, solid connectors. I expect this hose to last a long time for my home use. So far, it seems to be resistant to kinking up. It winds up well on our hose manager, and the length is good for our needs.

This is a no-nonsense hose.
The connections are made from very heavy duty metal (see picture) and are lead free. This, and the plastic used for the hose, makes it safe to drink the water from the hose.
There is a yellow stripe down the length of the hose which I find useful for detecting twists in the hose.
It has a limited lifetime warranty against defects in workmanship and materials for non commercial use.
The instructions say to store it indoors when not in use. (I can't do that and it will have to live outside all winter - but I will drain it first.)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Blueflame08 Female connector disconnected on first use
I had high hopes for this hose at is labeled "Inudustrial" and "Pro" grade, so I spent the extra money to get what I thought was going to be a good quality product. I was greatly let down when the hose completely disconnected from the female connector when hooked up to the water source. This was the VERY FIRST TIME that I had ever used the hose.
The hose didn't burst and wasn't cut, the connector just completely slipped off. After messing with it a little bit, I found that I could pull the female connector off BY HAND. It looked as if the female connector wasn't properly crimped onto the hose, so I'll blame it on poor workmanship and a slack in quality control, which could mean a problem with the company itself, and not only the hose.
I didn't want to go through the hassle of returning a wet 100' hose, so I just bought a 5/8" brass female connection mender with a hose clamp and moved on.
0/10, would not buy again.

Bought this hose... got it home, hooked it up (super pleased with the large surface to grip while tightening the female connector onto my exterior spigot), wrapped it around my hose reel, put a nozzle on it... everything worked great. That is, until I closed the nozzle at the end of the hose, and then a stream of water came shooting out of a hole in the side of the hose!

Bought this hose to replace cheap one that ALWAYS kinked. Best hose I have ever spent money on. NO kinks and very heavy duty. Very well worth the money,for years to come.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rusty You can drive over this hose with a tractor trailer (but I don't recommend it).
This is a heavy duty hose that should last you for years. But heavy duty comes with its on set of problems. The 100 ft hose is hard to roll up on your hose holder. It will take a little finesse to get it all on there and looking nice. But that's the nature of the beast when you buy a heavy duty hose with 500 psi bursting strength. It never pays to buy a cheap hose. The first time you drive over a cheap one it will burst on the spot. And being it has thicker walls then most hoses it doesn't kink as easy. Now I didn't say it won't kink I only said it won't kink as easy as thinner walled hoses. Your kids can drink right form this hose if the water quality is okay. It also carries a limited lifetime warranty so keep your receipt. Oh and we like the color its earthy looking.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Beanster Not what I thought
This hose is very hard to use. Doesn't roll up easy in my hose cabinet. It kinks a lot and trying to maneuver it around the yard is frustrating and next to impossible. It is too stiff.
Now that I have had this hose for over 6 months, it is getting a tiny bit easier for me to use. I would not buy this hose again.
The hose is heavy duty and you could drive a train over it and it wouldn't suffer any damage.

I immediately liked the heavy duty connectors on the element watering hose. They attach easily to the water line and my pressure washer. Great quality! I also was happily surprised to see that the hose is not stiff, as one may expect, but very pliable. Another plus is that both, couplings and hose material, are lead free. Unfortunately, there are two negatives: The hose kinks easily (despite the company's statement that it is kink resistant), and the water pressure is pretty compromised. I don't know whether that issue has to do with the 5/8" diameter or the 100' length of the hose. Fixing these problems would indeed make it one of the best hoses I have ever used.
