Garden Hose

WillsWills Posts: 262

Hi Folks can anyone help me out i am looking for a garden hose that stretches and shrinks back to its original size . i have been reading the descriptions on the back of them and it says that the connector that comes with it is a screw on can anyone tell me if this will fit on to a standard plastic kitchen tap or will i need a seperate connector for this . i do not have an outside tap and i have never bought a hose before any advice would be much appreciated image

    If your outside tap has a screw thread, those hoses will fit them. It won't connect to a kitchen tap.

    The x hoses had really bad reviews, re splitting after one season.

    Don't buy that type of expandable hose, they tend to explode.. And if it's through your house you'll have a flood on your hands.  They do make special adapter to attach to a sink spout.

    Just use a normal hose though, less risk of disaster.

    Thanks Folks image X hose seems to be a waste of time and money, think i will go out and get a normal hose , seems to be the safer option .

    I bought a kitchen tap hose adapter from ebay - absolutely brilliant since I don't have an outdoor tap! There's a part that screws to get the correct fit, and then a lever you push down to make sure it's sealed.

    Xhose and similar don't generally get good long term reviews.  They can't be repaired so even a minor incident can render them useless.  I've read of people cross threading the tap connector and the tap connector can't be replaced either.  Much more trouble than they are worth in my opinion.
