FlexAble Hose Review – Another Expandable Hose, Does it Work?

If you are tired of dealing with kinked and heavy hoses that never want to work with you, then you might want to consider the FlexAble Hose. This hose has a unique construction that makes it small and lightweight when there isn’t any water, but it can expand to the size of a regular hose when you need to water your plants or clean off your driveway. Our review will look at the specifics so that you’ll know if this is a good replacement for your hose.

Pros

  • The largest hose only weighs 1.5 pounds.
  • The FlexAble Hose can be stored almost anywhere because it shrinks down when you’re finished with it.
  • The thin design ensures that you’ll never have to deal with kinks.
  • Your wrists, arms and back won’t be strained because the hose weighs so much less than a conventional hose.
  • It’s easy to connect and remove from any water system.

Cons

  • It’s just as strong as a regular hose. This isn’t much of a con, but a number of people complained about this because they were hoping that this hose would be stronger than a conventional one.
  • The connecters sometimes leak, but you can fix this by just tightening them a bit by hand.

One of the best things about the FlexAble Hose is that it comes in three different lengths so that you can find the perfect one for your needs. They offer 25-foot, 50-foot and 75-foot hoses. This is the extended length of the hose. They are much more compact when there’s no water running through them.

The longest hose is only 28 feet long, and the shortest one is about 9 feet long.

So, Why the FlexAble Hose?

The average hose weighs about 10 to 20 pounds depending on its size and material. While this may not seem like much, you need to remember that the water is going to make it heavier, and the shape of the hose is going to make it seem much heavier when you are using it. Many people experience muscular and joint strain when using these hoses because they weigh so much.

The FlexAble Hose weighs close to nothing. The 25-foot hose is half a pound, the 50-foot hose is one pound and the 75-foot one is about 1.5 pounds. While water will make it heavier, the hose will still weigh considerably less than a standard hose.

No Kinking

Probably the best benefit of the FlexAble Hose is that, like the DAP X Hose and the Pocket Hose, it doesn’t kink at all. If you have ever handled a hose, then you know how hard it can be to roll it up when you’re finished. The hose will work against you the whole time, it doesn’t want to bend correctly and it all turns into a mess within a few seconds.

That does happen with this hose. It takes absolutely no effort to roll this hose up when you’re finished. The thin and light material allows you to easily manipulate it so that you can quickly store it without having to get frustrated.

Safe and Durable

This hose is incredibly durable because it is made with a double-wall construction. Some people were worried that the hose would burst and rip from the water pressure because it’s so thin, but this hose can easily take a lot of abuse without breaking.

Just because it feels weak doesn’t mean it is. This unique construction is also what allows the hose to easily stretch without kinking.

Power

flexable-hose-reviewsSome people were a little let down by this, but the FlexAble Hose is just as strong as your conventional water hose. This is actually a great thing because the hose is so much lighter and smaller than a regular hose. Usually this would make the water weaker, but not with this product.

You can easily water flowers, blast dirt and clean off anything with this hose without experiencing any difficulties.

Even Children can Handle it

Children often have a very hard time using garden hoses because they are heavy and difficult to work with. That’s not the case with this hose. Children can use it safely without having any troubles or problems.

Final Thoughts

The FlexAble Hose has many benefits and advantages over a common garden hose, but it doesn’t cost as  much as you might think. You can buy this hose for about $30 at most retailers and online stores. If that isn’t a great deal, then I don’t know what is.

This hose passes the ReviewYT test. It weighs close to nothing, never kinks, is small enough to store anywhere and it’s much easier to use than a regular hose. If you hate the idea of having to water your flowers because you’re tired of dealing with all of those pesky hose problems, then you need the FlexAble Hose. This will fix all of those hose woes without giving you any additional problems.

For those who haven’t seen the commercial, I’ve included it below for your convenience.
