This is not my first spring type hose, however, this particular brand is a genuine piece of JUNK! When another reviewer wrote of the cheap aluminum ends and not being able to tighten it to an outdoor faucet, I dismissed his review for no other reason than the many positive reviews, now I need to go back to see how many of those are "paid" reviews i.e. given a discount for their thoughts. The female end was so poorly made, it would not screw on tight enough by hand to the brass faucet, and blew water all over the place when I attempted to use it.
The reason I purchased this was for space saving convenience on my boat, a regular hose takes up more valuable space. Today, I pulled out both my old spring hose (of another brand) and also removed this new product from its package in order to fill my water tanks (one hose will not reach). At home, I have another hose rated as "contractor grade", whatever that means, which has heavy, machined aluminum ends. Those ends are much sturdier than the cheap brass sometimes found on hoses. Not this hose, the aluminum is so thin I'm surprised it did not bend when I attempted to screw it onto the brass faucet. There is no place to grip either! All you have is an almost smooth female fitting, no metal extends below it to grip as my other hoses do. The black ends below the fitting look good in the picture, however, they are a cheap hunk of flexible material and slide back onto the hose itself if you attempt to use them as a grip to assist for tightening. They must be for appearance only as they serve no other purpose.
Honestly, the last time I encountered a water hose this poorly made was when I ordered from another vendor, four of those "as seen on TV" collapsible hoses. Those were so poorly constructed, of the four I purchased, none made it an entire season and in fact a couple of them blew out when pressurized the first time. Live and learn, or so I thought I had! The good part about purchasing from Amazon is that they right the wrong, I printed my return label moments ago. Thank you Amazon!
