A: There are a number of ways it could be dripping in my experience The valve stem itself could be leaking. This only happens when the water is on and under some pressure. The surface of the spigot where the hose washer seals could be damaged. The hose washer could need replacing. The hose itself could be leaking where the fitting is inserted. Tightening with a wrench might help it it is leaking at the hose washer. If everything is in good shape hand tight usually gets the job done for me.
A: It’s too bad we can’t make these in the USA.. Why not? Labor costs!
A: They're made in the USA (It's on the packaging label attached to the hose). Company's been making many different hoses for over 90 years.
A: Great product. Very good quality.
A: I have two of these and they are fine around the house. They do not kink like many hoses in this price range and the rubber is of excellent quality. I don't understand why you asked this question without a specific point or objection. I am sure you can search out a hose made in the US if that is what you want. Most rubber products including vehicle tires are now made in China. Check your car tires for country of manufacture .
A: It's true
A: This hose kinks like crazy! Disappointed. Do not buy!
A: Hose is garbage it kinks way to easy
A: All of our vinyl hoses also kink! The advantage of a rubber hose is that it will outlast vinyl 3 to 1 and will not deteriorate under UV rays (sunlight) like all the cheaper vinyl hoses will. Rubber hoses are a better buy for the money in the long run in my opinion.
A: I have two and have not had a problem with kinking with proper use and storing. These Goodyear hoses are better than other garden hoses I have purchased. The rubber is excellent, and the connectors are heavy duty for a garden hose.
A: I have had mine for over a year and it rarely kinks. Use it frequently to wash cars or water plants. One thing though, depending on how you coil it when finished using, can coil in such a way that kinks are more prone. Just coil after use carefully with a large circle, e.g. 3-4 feet, and it doesn't kink.
