This hose was very expensive and lasted only one year before the inside liner broke allowing water to flow out throughout the length of the hose making it unusable. It was used for only normal watering of my flowers and was not put under any additional pressure. I would not recommend this hose for purchase
After using for a little over a month, it suddenly blew up. Used it for just regular household/garden use: watering flower beds, washing cars, etc. Was never used with a pressure washer and always emptied it and kept it out of the sun.
This hose is the third of the four brands available. It lasted three months after routine normal use. The hose busted wide open and I had to return it to the seller to get my money back. The first two brands I bought did not last either, even after shutting off the water pressure while the hose is not in actual use such as while soaping the car during car wash.
The first Hose was green and lasted a couple of months. A year ago we bought two black X Hose Pros with the brass fittings, believing what they promise. Kept them out of the sun in a bucket when not in use. Then used one on the pressure washer - it worked great. The next time it was connected to the faucet the rubber inner hose had separated from the brass connector with water spraying thru the cloth cover. No way to fix it.
After three or four weeks it blew up with standard house water pressure. Bought the Pro model because the same thing happened to my last one.
I was wary after the reviews, but I have to say that this hose has worked great for me this season. The key is to not let it sit at full pressure for a long time. Mine has lasted for the entire garden season with daily use. I am impressed with it.
My boss got this for use when pressure washing. Yes, it's a little pricey, but this is the most amazing hose I've ever used. It's not often someone reinvents the wheel, but this is one of those times. If you use hoses with any level of frequency you should try these out. Now, we will see if it stands the test of time, but as of now it looks well built.
