To check each hoses, we used our primary hose-end sprayer. Since every choice expands in several methods, we needed to see how their lengths in contrast once they have been in use. We have been stunned that the Backyard Skilled spiral hose solely prolonged to about 23 toes after we have been pulling fairly laborious and simply over 19 toes with out tugging. Since we didn’t wish to pull our spigot from the home, we couldn’t get even 20 toes of size from this hose. Later, we observed some small print on the field that states, “Usable size roughly 22.5 ft,” which was not listed on the product web page and remains to be greater than we have been in a position to get. Conversely, we have been happy to seek out the HytroTech expandable hose prolonged additional than anticipated at 28.5 toes when the water was on, and there was no pulling required.
We additionally observed a distinction in strain whereas utilizing every hose. The spiral hose appeared to lose water strain the extra we prolonged it, whereas the HydroTech choice stored constant strain even when totally expanded. Each hoses have some type of safety close to the tap connection to maintain them from kinking or breaking at that spot, though the HydroTech’s protecting encasement is extra intensive. Each hoses linked effectively to our spigot with out leaking.
