I helped my brother-in-law wash his car the other day, and it was a pleasure using the new hose we purchased. It is a Flexon Heavy Duty Garden Hose, 75 feet long. This hose will cover a lot of ground.
The inside diameter is 5/8", and it has a 7 year warranty, which I thought was impressive. It has all-season flexibility, solid brass couplings, a patented Guard-N-Grip for ease in tightening the connection, and virgin inner tube for better flexibility and longevity (which is a 2-ply inner core consisting of a 1st-ply heavy duty nylon wrap and a 2nd-ply heavy duty nylon wrap). I feel that this hose will probably last for quite some time, or at least I'm hopeful of that.
It also carries an ease-of-use commendation by the Arthritis Foundation. I haven't seen that before.
The hose was very easy to use when I was helping my brother-in-law with his car. It kinked somewhat when unrolling it originally, but other than that it was fine. It is easy to hold and manuever and is your typical green and white striped color.
So far, I really like this garden hose. I hope it will hold up well, it certainly seems like it will as it is very well constructed.
