Is there a more indispensable homeowner’s tool than the humble garden hose? It’s there when you need to water your plants, clean your car, rinse your patio furniture, spray your siding, maybe even douse yourself on a torrid day. and it should be about the most headache-free implement in your domestic arsenal. But in general, garden-hose technology has been, shall we say, lagging. Most are still too heavy and cumbersome, easily knots up, take up too much space, and kink just when you’re in the middle of a task. Who needs that aggravation? Not you! Luckily salvation has arrived in the form of this 100-foot wonder from the folks at Dewdroo.
How do we love this product? Let us count the ways. For one thing, it weighs in at just 4.6 lbs.— incredible considering its (potential) size and versatility. It features a durable, double latex core that’s endured high-strength blasting tests and is sheathed in a high-density fabric that won’t shred or tear when dragged along your driveway.
And get this: In its resting state, the Dewdroo is only 33.5 feet long. Turn on the H20, though, and it expands to three times its size (and rest assured; when it’s time to perform it’ll never tell you it has a headache or needs to watch the game — ba-dum-bum!). Also, its connectors and shut-off valve are made of brass, which look great and, thanks to the included gaskets, won’t leak a drop.
Amazingly, this deal also includes a 10-function nozzle. Whether you need to gently sprinkle your flower bed, shampoo the dog, wash the car or power-blast your patio, there’s a setting to get it done.
And this Dewdroo expandable hose isn’t the only thing that’s gushing: Over 80% of Amazon reviewers have given it five-star raves.
“No more hose wrangling!” one shopper triumphantly declared. “I’ve struggled for years with traditional 100-foot garden hoses. Trying to coil them up is like wrestling a boa constrictor….wish I would have known about this years ago. It’s a delight to use and so easy to move around…. It’s also fascinating to watch it compress itself after the water is turned off and I’m releasing the pressure.”
“I ordered this hose because my wife has found it difficult to roll up the hose onto the reel that she uses for her raised beds,” related this smart, gallant spouse. “This is a whole new world in garden hoses! It’s not only lightweight and easily maneuverable, it’s twice as long as my standard 50′ hoses that take up twice the amount of space.”
“We’ve purchased several hoses claiming to not kink and to be easily maneuverable,” began a satisfied customer. “All have failed. This hose lives up to its claims! We have several acres to water and have purchased three of these. It comes with the hose, storage hook, storage bag, and a great nozzle! We will never buy another type of hose ever again.”
