Hoses, Hoses, Hoses Galore - On the House

Hoses, Hoses, Hoses Galore

By on March 25, 2014

There’s a lot more to garden hoses than meets the eye. There are choices in garden hoses you should consider before picking one out.

First, there are three standard lengths: 25 feet, 50 feet and 100 feet. The 50-footer is most popular. There are also three diameters to choose from, 1/2, 5/8 and 3/4 inches. Five-eighths is the most widely used. Hoses are made of three different types of materials, vinyl, rubber and nylon-reinforced vinyl. The latter is the most popular.

So, you have three lengths, three diameters and three types to choose from, the most popular one being the 50-foot, 5/8-inch nylon-reinforced vinyl model. By just increasing the diameter to 3/4″, you can move 6 percent more water.
