Lizard Hose

11 Votes

Lizard Hose is a green garden hose that will expand on its own when filled with water, and retract on its own when its water supply its turned off. It'll expand up to 25 feet in length, and it can be used to gently water flowers and other plants, or even to aim a more powerful stream of water at second-story windows. The design of this hose will prevent any kinking, and since it weighs less than two pounds, it won't feel heavy when you're moving it around.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Lizard Hose is $29.95 plus $6.95 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Lizard Hose by paying the extra shipping fee of $4.95 for a total price of $41.85.

How It Works

Each Lizard Hose is made up of two layers that include an inner liner and a rubber sleeve on the outside. Once you start filling your hose with water, the inner liner will expand as pressure builds, and as it expands, the outer sleeve will stretch, too. As the hose expands, it'll uncoil itself and stretch out to 25 feet in length without bursting. If you want it to stop expanding, all you'll need to do is cut off its water supply. Following that, it'll retract, coiling back to its original size.

Features

  • Light Green

    Like most garden hoses, the Lizard Hose is light green, so you'll be able to spot it quickly in your yard or even if it's being stored in a messy garage or shed. Hence, you and the members of your household will be able to avoid running over it with bikes, wheeled toys or tools, and vehicles.

  • Weighs Less Than Two Pounds

    This particular hose weighs less than two pounds, while some garden hoses come in at more than two times that weight. You'll be able to slide this hose gently across your lawn instead of huffing, puffing, and tiring yourself out as you might if you were to drag around a heavier hose. If you've got kids, they may even be able to move this hose without difficulty, too.

  • Flexible

    The material used to make each Lizard Hose is flexible enough to allow the hose to curve smoothly around outdoor furniture, trees, vehicle tires, and corners without kinking or causing water to stop flowing.

  • Durable

    This hose is strong enough that it'll likely last for years, and even if it's subjected to up to 20,000 pounds of pressure, it may withstand it and survive to see another day.

Positive Points

  • Useful for Variety of Tasks

    The Lizard Hose offers a stream that's gentle enough to water the flowers and plants in your yard without damaging them. However, you can also use the hose for more heavy-duty tasks, such as when you need to deliver a blast of water to windows, siding, or the outer shell of a vehicle.

  • Ideal for Seniors, Injured

    If you're a senior suffering from joint and muscle issues or you have a physical injury, you may find it difficult to drag around a standard garden hose, regardless of the size of your yard. Fortunately, using this lightweight one instead may make yard work less stressful for you and allow you to continue doing it without help.

  • Won't Take up Much Space

    While this hose is 25 feet long when expanded to its full capacity, it'll only take up a couple of feet of space when retracted. Since it'll coil itself back up in a circle when not being used, you won't need to struggle to hang it up on a hook or a nail.

Negative Points

  • Not Ideal for Huge Yards

    A 25-foot hose is long enough that it will reach every corner of many yards, but not all of them. If you have a larger-than-average yard, you likely won't be able to extend the Lizard Hose to all the edges of your property, so you'll be restricted as to what you can do with it.

Defective from the Start

Bought 100' hose and it sprung a leak at the first use. The outer rubber membrane is too thin to be durable. If dragged on the ground it will rip the outside exposing delicate plastic inside. The plastic had a leak and the hose ballooned and popped in this area. I would avoid this hose and purchase a different kind with the nylon outer covering.

Sprung Leaks within Days; Not worth the Money

I purchased a Lizard Hose at home depot that expanded up to 100ft. I paid approx $60. I liked it at first. I does expand quite a bit when the water is turned on and will shrink back to its original size after awhile when the water is off. The small size and light weight is a bonus for such a long hose.

However, the material was not sturdy at all. Within a week it sprung a large leak in its outer layer ( which is very thin - as one would expect for a hose that is lightweight. ) the leak makes the hose unusable. I found other small holes along the hose that will also likely turn into leaks.

I live in a very urban environment and so used the hose to get from my tap ( in the back ) all the way to the front garden. In between is a cement pathway. I suspect that either a ) stretching it the full length or b ) dragging it along the cement path while moving around watering the garden is what caused the leak.

This might be a fine hose if you can use it on a soft environment ( i. E. Grass ) and don't need to use the full length of the hose. But otherwise I would avoid it.

I will be returning this hose and buying a much sturdier heavy duty one.

Stretch it out in deep dirt and run a tractor over it. This is supposed to be believable. Obviously you at Lizard Hose think people are not to bright.
