These metal hoses are very heavy duty and significantly more durable than flexible hoses. Perhaps most shocking is that they do not wait nearly as much as you would think and they are quite thin.
Metal garden hoses make sense in so far as regular garden hoses are prone to degrading with time especially when they are exposed to the elements. Said metal hoses fare much better in extreme weather. They hold up remarkably well and handle things like sun or rough exposure with ease. Gaskets and seals on this hose however will not be much better than those you find on the standard hose and the issue here is that many regular garden hose fail at the connections. It is the gaskets and seals where they break.
Given the fact that the gaskets and seals are very similar, it stands to reason that you aren't really preventing the main cause of damage.
This advertisement focuses heavily on the fact that traditional garden hoses are susceptible to things like explosions or large tears. In reality this is not something that many hose owners experience. At most, they have problems with it leaking at the gasket area or being hot to the touch. However, the idea that hoses around common yards are just exploding because of sheer water pressure or tearing because a dog chewed on it is a bit far fetched.
This does not mean that the strength and durability of the metal hose is not well worth it. Just that you should not worry if you have a normal, flexible hose. It will not likely explode at any time.
This hose saves you money into separate ways. The first way is that you will allegedly not have to replace the hose ever again. Their lifetime guarantee associated with this purchase dictates it you can simply return it should there be any issues in the future. As such you literally never have to purchase another hose again. The second way it saves you money is by reducing the need for accessories.
Regular hoses that often wind up and become kinked are resolved with special hand cranked units that wrap up the hose. Said units prevent the kinks often associated with traditional houses by keeping the unit wrapped when not in use. These accessories are rather expensive and with the metal hose you actually don't need them nor will you ever need them.
How it's Different from Competitors
Flexible hoses used to be all the rage even though they received many negative reviews. One of the biggest issues associated with flexible hoses is the fact that they can succumb to breaking, the result of high water pressure. They can also prove problematic in foul weather either hot or cold. In fact, many hoses prove problematic when left out in extreme hot temperatures because the hose itself especially the end where the metal fixture is become very hot to the touch. They can even cause slight burns when you pick them up. Even though this unit is made from steel it allegedly does not have any problems with overheating. So you can pick it up after it is been lying on the ground outside in exposed to sunlight and not have any problems with accidental burns.
- Metal Garden Hose
Metal garden hose is a puncture proof and kinked proof metal garden hose, the main competitor to this one. Industrial stainless steel it is advertised as the world's toughest garden hose because of its lightweight, it's flexibility, and the ability to handle high-pressure flow. This other option claims that it is resistant to dog chewing, thorns, or any type of tear and coils perfectly every time. Available in the same for options for length, this unit has improved fittings and brass connectors that make it durable and able to handle any household water pressure that you might have.
Of course, this one is still not immune to leaking because even the strongest of hoses will have problems with the couplings and the gaskets. However, it does outperform standard and retractable hoses very well.
