K & H Thermo- Hose

" There is a steep learning curve associated with using this hose, and you have to be very careful to obey all the rules or you will experience failure. We also found that, at least in very cold climates (we live in Minnesota), it needs to be plugged in all the time. Take the warning to unhook from the faucet or another hose between uses very seriously! That part is a bit of a hassle. And, if you leave it so that water can drain out, expect to have to thaw the end before use. The good news: Obeying all the rules and cautions enables you to enjoy free flowing water in any weather!

" While this hose may be suited for light intermittent work, it will not hold up in contiuous sustained use. If you're going to hose off a kennel and you don't want to drain the hose, and don't mind spending $100+ for a utility hose, this will work. But if you want a long term freeze-free hose, this won't last. I had it on my RV, as a water supply and insulated it. it worked well for about 2 months, then gave up the ghost. Better and cheaper to go back to heat tapes. "
