Good Hose

"Has not yet kinked in the 3 weeks since I started to use it. This is the only thing that can be faulty with any hose. I buy only rubber hose because I leave them out year round and they last about 5 years as compared to plastic which kink and last 2 seasons."

Forget the NeverKink - Get this hose!

,
June 19, 2009
By tlwalker1962
from Greenville, SC
"I literally have a dozen Apex hoses, about half are NeverKink, and the other half are the Apex Industrial-Duty red rubber hot water hose.
But I have had a lot of problems with the NeverKink. 1st: it gets very hot on a sunny day, which makes the water inside of the hose extremely hot. This heat softens the hose, and the water pressure then expands the hose. My 3/4" hoses are well over 1" in diameter now. Great for water flow, but bad for a hose.
After you turn the water off, the stretched NeverKink has the consistency of a wet noodle, and KINKS LIKE CRAZY. In addition I have had several bulges appear in my Neverkink even though the hoses are never left sitting on the ground to be run over or damaged. Instead I use a rapid real and my hoses are all in new condition, except for the mentioned problems.
However, my Apex Industrial-Duty red rubber hot water hoses have performed great, even though we use them side by side the NeverKink. The Apex red rubber hose, never leaks, kinks or has bulges, and is still the same size as when it was new years ago. So forget the Neverkink and go for the Apex Industrial-Duty red rubber hot water hose."
