Questions & Answers


I understand that the inside diameter of this hose is 5/8", what is the outside diameter?

Asked by Tom September 27, 2020

As the hose is slightly out of round, my caliper measured about 0.9 inches at the widest point. It isn't very thick at all

At what temperature does this hose begin to get stiff? Others I have bought get stiff in the shad...

Asked by Tom September 21, 2020

Have no idea. Am in SW FL. Guessing that around 40 or so it may become a little stiffer. Can you get to Neverkinks website and check out their information? Good luck!

Can I use this hose to drain hot water tank?

Asked by Sanju August 6, 2020

Depends how hot the water. If you are worried turn down temp on tank and either wait a few hours or run hot water for a few minutes to cool it off.

How many can you connect together? I need to get water 1200 feet from water source. can I connect...

Asked by CapitalAL June 7, 2020

Infinity, nothing prevents you from connecting all hoses ever made. How much force you want at the discharge end does.

why does it say that the store in my area has 37 of these but I went to the store and they said that they didn't have any?

Asked by Curtis May 25, 2020

One of the problems with Home Depot is that the store inventory system counts items that are sitting in the truck as being in inventory in the store. It may take several days before the truck is unloaded and items actually reach the shelves.

Is this hose lead free?

Asked by Mich May 25, 2020

Don't know. Check the product info and the paper that's connected to it before you purchase it.

What is it made of? Rubber or vinyl?

Asked by meggie May 21, 2020


Is it safe to drink from this hose?

Asked by Huffykins May 16, 2020

You cannot drink from this hose.

The couplings appear to have a brass lining inside a silver outer. Is that solid brass and aluminum or stainless steel?

Asked by Peter April 26, 2020

I think it's aluminum but not sure. mfr tells you to loosen connection several times a year to prevent seizing of threads.

Will this work well with a pressure washer?

Asked by CathyInNH January 27, 2020

This should serve your needs with a pressure washer.

Extremely disappointed with this hose. Despite all of my efforts they kink CONSTANTLY. I have two 100ft and one 75ft, I've tried them on hose reels and loose and the outcome is the same. They always kink and most of the time they kink in multiple places. I attached a photo of an every day occurrence of three KINKS in less than 20ft of hose. Also the gauge on the female end of the hose make it impossible to put on a reel, it KINKS on the attachment. BUY ANY OTHER HOSE!

Kinks and stretches
I bought 2 100 foot hoses in the Spring. They kink up just as much as a "Regular Hose" and one of them is expanding in the middle of the hose in 3 places. I wish I kept my receipt but it was 3 months ago. I will never buy this product again. Check out the hose in the photo. There are 3 places in the hose like this and I never leave the water on or pressure in the hose. I always bleed it out when I roll it up.

We have had the hose about 2 months and is blistered and burst, springing more than a leak. Taking it back to HD for a replacement. I am not sure I would buy another one.

Leaks like a sieve. Doesn't fit well onto hose bib
It takes a special kind of talent to screw up a hose - but this manufacturer rises to that occasion. Hose was a pain to get connected to the hose bib. Like the threaded piece isn't long enough or something. It felt like it only screwed-in about 3/4 of a turn before bottoming out. Naturally I retried several times - same result. Upon turning on - leaked like a sieve. Naturally, I assumed the connection between hose and bib wasn't tight - so I went and got a wrench to tighten it. This helped - but it continued to leak like crazy from below - like where the rubber part went into the connector. Solution: The broken hose I was going to throw away and replace this hose with turned out to be a whole lot better of an option. I was able to avoid Covid-19 be buying it curbside - but now still get a second-chance to get it having to return it in-person.

Never kink, maybe.... leak? absolutely!!!!!!
Purchased last month, two 100 ft hoses. Connected them tight and they leak. I hate having to return them to a store during this pandemic so I will probably live with it but I would not buy again.

Hi Kevin,

We are so sorry that this happened. You certainly do not have to live with this as we understand the concern many have with entering a store right now. Please contact our customer service team at 800-289-6786 and they will be happy to assist you.

Thank you! TeknorApex
Less than a year
I bought this hose due to the high pressure of water that comes out of the spigot on the front of my house. Goofy plumbing from what I'm told since its before the pressure regulator in the house. Anyways I typically only open the valve half way and get plenty of pressure. Kids ended up opening it all the way and then forget about it so of course it blows the house out even after less than a year of having it. It says lifetime warranty but why spend hours of my time trying to get a new hose when they'll probably end up telling me I didn't store it properly. Warranties are written to protect the company...not the consumer. Needless to say I wont be buying another one. A lot of money to spend on a water hose after not even a year.

So far so good with the hose. Only used it a few times in this season so we will see after the hot summer how it holds up.
