Best No Kink Garden Water Hose

Updated on July 20, 2014

Are you tired of doing the garden hose dance? .

What is this crazy little square dance we do with our water hoses every time we use them?  "Spin that hose round and round...  Twirl to your left...  Now twirl to your right...  Get that kink, out of sight."

If you have done it once, you have done it a thousand times.  You know that every time you go to use that stupid hose, you have to do the dance.  This got me questioning, was it the hose that was stupid, or was it me?

I have bought what I thought to be no kink hoses in the past.  One was this big, thick, black and yellow hose that I dropped sixty bucks on.  I found it at Sams and it was supposed to be the best garden hose you will ever find. 

I took that puppy home and I couldn't wait to put it through it's paces.  I watered the yard, washed the truck, and drug that thing from one end of the house to the other.

For the most part, that hose did a fine job when it was cool outside.  But when the sun came out, on those hot Florida summer days, I needed to hose off the hose before I could use it.  It was way too hot to touch.  Not to mention, the first twenty seconds worth of water that came out of that thing would scald the devil himself.

Another thing that would happen when it got hot, it would get soft.  At that point, it was no longer a kink free hose.  It would turn into a knotted mess every summer.  It drove me nuts.

I dropped all that money on what was supposed to be a kink free hose and all I got was a long, hot, mess.

Then, one day my wife had me drive out to the Tractor Supply Store to pick up some food for her pet pig,  While I was in there I came across this Never Kink Hose.  I almost didn't pick it up.  It was hard for me to believe that they could make a "never" kink hose.  But I had to give it a try.

It has been three months and so far it has not had one issue with kinking.  It is so nice not having to do that silly hose dance anymore.  

I also found a way to keep it from getting too hot.  I no longer let it lay out in the sun.  I bought a nice enclosed automatic hose reel to keep it in.  Now if I could just teach my wife and kids how to use the crank to get the no kink hose back in it.

You may as well go ahead and get a new spray nozzle with your never kink hose. You know the old one is leaking.

This little adapter is very handy. I can leave the hose connected and hook up a kids toy next to it.

No more hot hoses or unsightly messes. Get yourself an enclosed hose reel like I did.
