Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mvl08 Leaking at factory seal
Like some of the other reviewers I installed the hose to find it is leaking at the manufacturing end of the connector. So basically defective prior to installation

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by xkcd Poor quality:
I purchased this at my local Home Depot to extend the hose for a dishwasher because there were no local suppliers for the manufacturer's extension kit. This was a mistake.
As other reviewers have noted, the hose is made of soft material that crimps and collapses. In my case -- the installation was nothing extraordinary -- the hose extension had to rise from the bottom of the cabinet through a guide-loop and into the disposal. After about the second time the dishwasher was run, the hose developed kinks at the guide and at the connection to the disposal. I could, with effort get the hose to open at the disposal connection, but I could not get the hose back into form at the other location.
In the end I ordered the manufacturer's hose extension kit, which is has worked fine.
I recommend avoiding this product. It may work with installations with no significant turns, but most installs will probably have some. There are better options.
That said, I did not have any problems with the connections leaking, as mentioned by another reviewer. In my experience, the weak point with this product was its tendency to collapse, not the connections.

Connected to a dishwasher that heats water to barely hot; the hose collapsed. Save your money

Return it even if it's working right now. And tell HD not to stock this item.

As the other reviews state, this product collapses under normal operating temperatures for a dishwasher.
Don’t buy it. Its junk.

...just like everyone else reports. Hot water causes the hose to become soft and lose its integrity.

This hose crimped the first time we ran our dishwasher. The hot water crimps the hose at any curved sections of the hose and then when it cools back down it permanently stays crimped. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. A garden hose cut to size and added fittings on each end would be better than this garbage.

Installed on to expensive German, DW. Lasted a month before our hot water distorted the hose and caused it to kink. Waste of time and money.
