Why, if the hose is supposed to be 3 x stronger, did my hose pull a seam and water gush out all over me when I had only used the hose 9 or 10 times?

I was just watering some plants, and the green covering split a seam, and water gushed out and sprayed all over me before I could turn off the spigot. The hose is useless because I can't patch it because it expands and breaks the patch apart. I am disappointed in this product.

Answer: 
I bought 2 of the top brass version from a local store and on both the inner hose separated from the connector (one of them the very first time I turned it on, the other one after only 3 uses) so water just runs down the hose from the spout connector and never fills the hose. When I returned them to the store their comment was "not again". Apparently they see them returned all the time. Great concept but Read More

Mine did the exact same thing - burst while I was using it. I'd only used it about 5 times, always turned the water off at the bib while the nozzle was depressed, and stored in the garage. Product is very poor quality. Too bad as it is a great idea. Certainly won't purchase another one!

Answer: 
The same thing happened to me twice, after thinking the first hose had a defect or I accidently, somehow, damaged it. The second one I bought, lasted even less time. I am handicapped and needed a hose that was light and easy to handle and put away. They just don't last any time at all. Is all this convenience worth the price, and getting soak and wet, I think not.

I agree that this should not have happened, unless you turned the hose off at the sprayer end--which the instructions warn against because the continuing water will build up inside the hose and burst it. It should always be turned off at the water faucet

Rated 2.6 out of 5 by 919 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Burst after just one year This hose starting to "sweat" after about 9 months of use. It outright burst after about a year. We kept in garage, but never in direct sunlight. Would not recommend unless you don't mind replacing it frequently. As far as coiling/un-coiling, it did that pretty good. August 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I'm going to agree with DB, SHE is correct As DB said in s earlier post, people do not read the instructions, then they give hate where stupidity is involved. If you put diesel in a gas car, your going to find the car doesn't work so well. For 20 bucks you can not go wrong. Just do as the instructions read, drain hose, take out 2nd washer and do not store in the sun. But then again we are talking about a 20 dollar hose. Use it for a season and throw it away if it breaks, its not made from your tires. It will not last forever. If 20 bucks means that much to you, then add 20 bucks more and get a real hose, then when that one breaks like all hoses do, you got a complaint there. July 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Hose I've Ever Had This hose is a dream. When the water is turned on it is every bit of a normal hose with respect to flow, but once I turn the water off the magic happens. The 50' hose shrinks itself (as long as you have the loose end open/sprayer open) down to about the size of a kids soccer ball. My favorite part is once the pressure is relieved from the hose it is basically cloth-like. No stiff hose to coil, just completely limp fabric hose. I love it, will never buy another type. August 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Piece of junk I only have 20# water pressure and it blew a leak only after a couple time of use. So, cut out the two leaks which were about a foot apart, installed a connector and it blew somewhere else. Anyway my 50' hose is now half that length and still spring leaks. The outer casing must be rotten and where it fails the inner tube is like an aneurysm and bursts. Great idea but needs work on the quality. August 12, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Acceptable Quality - Very convenient Lightweight. Easy to handle and maneuver. Won't destroy your garding if you end up dragging the hose over established plants. One drawback is that there is not as much power behind the spray, but that is the sacrifice for the lighter weight and easier handling. It may take a little longer to water the garden, but I think it's worth it. The other drawback is that 50 feet isn't very long, so it's hard to reach everything unless your spigot is located central to where you'll be watering. It's easy to store in a hose bucket and doesn't get tangled or kinked and takes much less time and effort than winding a heavy duty hose. July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great hose This is my second hose of this type but my first hose had a shutoff at the end of the hose so I can better control a sprinkler from with out losing the pressure to expand the hose completely. With this hose I had to purchase a separate shutoff to put on the end of the hose so I can open the spicket all the way and expand the hose so I can use the full 50' other than that these hoses are great. August 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Great idea... but doesn't hold up Gets holes in it very easily. When you shut off the water, you have to drain the hose completely so water isn't trapped in the hose or it'll heat up in the sun and will get a hole. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hose is Really Nice. Hose is very light to carry, even with the water flowing through it. When I'm done, it starts contracting back up to a much shorter length almost immediately. About 4 loops over the faucet, gets the hose tucked away (hanging from the faucet) and ready to go out again when needed. Had it about 3 weeks, and I'm hoping it lasts a long, long time.
