First attach it to the spigot and put on a nozzle that lets you decide if water flows or not. Next uncoil it to its full length where it can be laid out in the sun, preferably straight as opposed to in a U shape or S shape. This is usually a challenge because the hose wants to remain in its coils. Don't give up. When you're done there will still be some waves where the coils were. Turn on the water at the spigot and if you want to water a little feel free, but basically just let the hose lay in the sun with water in it but not dispensing for a couple of hours. The hose will warm, the water in it will warm and the hose will lay down completely flat with not a ripple anywhere. You are now the master of your hose and can recoil it any way you choose. It will not fight back nor will it be inclined to kink during further uses.
The fittings are excellent on this hose and it is a joy to use. The olive color is rather like olive green mud, nicer than in the picture, and shiny. I really wanted a hose at my barn that I could drink out of, but also one that is super lightweight and easy to manage. After the taming trick, this one is. It's certainly not cheap but meets all my needs and is easy to rehang after use.
The good points for this hose are as follows. It's not heavy. It does not remember kinks and thus re-kink in the same location with increasing likelihood over time. The fittings are good quality, but not any different from any other quality hose.
The bad points are as follows. It sticks to nearly everything it's dragged across, including itself. It doesn't want to lay flat, it has a frustrating springiness to it which causes it to lay where it wants which often doesn't match what I want. It does kink, and when it does it's not a simple "shake the hose" to resume water flow. It's expensive.
After trying to see if I could tolerate using it over the summer I've decided I can't, so unfortunately it's going in the recycle bin and being replaced with a better functioning more traditional hose. Boy was I was misled by all the positive reviews of others, I've got to learn my lesson in that regard.
What I didn't realize: the outside surface of this hose does not glide over itself making it a little harder to navigate through a garden. A traditional hose has a smooth skin that slides easily over itself and other garden objects (think of a slithering snake). The surface of this hose kind of "clings" to itself (imagine putting a taught thick layer of plastic wrap over this hose). And so it can have a tendency to clink up, however, the lightweight-ness of this hose somewhat makes up for that.
This hose is pricey: 2+ times the cost of a traditional garden hose that you can pick up at a garden center.
Despite the price, I am very happy with this hose and am very glad that I got it. Only time will tell how long this will last over the years.
Overall: If you want a solid-built garden hose that delivers drinking-water safe water, then this hose is for you. I would not get this hose if a) you're looking for a generic garden hose that just delivers water b) you're looking for a super lightweight, disposable expandable hose. In both cases, you can get a better deal for your dollar.
Afterthought - I had considered getting the 400 model to save a few bucks as it has a smaller diameter. When this hose arrived, I realized that it was narrower in diameter to the hose that I was previously using. While the water pressure / volume of this hose is fine for my needs, I'm glad to have gotten the 500 as I think the 400 would have been too small.
Absolutely love this hose for its durable feel and stays untangled. The color is nice, though I didn't buy it for that.
I bought this hose for its claim to be a stellar water drinking hose. Safe for sitting out for gardening, though I buried my hose in 'swimming noodles' underground so that I can run the water in the winter also. I have the hose for my garage and studio so that we can get fresh water for drinking and cleaning herbs, etc.
The hose untangled mostly on its own which was cool to observe. The materials are supposed to be completely safe and durable. It really does feel different in your hands than other hoses.
I studied this company and its dedication for manufacturing a safe drinking water hose without all the bad chemicals. Even safer by the sounds of it compared to PVC pipe.
Looking forward to many years using it.
On a plumbing note....... This was cheaper and safer to install than hiring a plumber and all the plumbing supplies. I am a 60 yr old woman and I was able to do everything myself except dig the ditch. Which happened to be done by a backhoe. My ditch was 50 feet long from spigot to garage.
I bought the 100 foot hose to use. With a safe drinking water hose splitter on the spigot, I have my water hooked up all the time and I can still use my other garden hose at the same time.
