The Marty Lounge>Tell me about your hose. Is it long? Does it expand? Good stream?
scho63 07:47 PM 02-02-2021
I'm shopping for a garden hose and while at first I was looking into those light weight expansion hoses, people keep reporting they have a tendency to produce inconsistent streams.

I now see these new stainless steel hoses and I'm intrigued.

I'm looking to hook up one of those power washing attachments with soap dispensers to clean the outside of my place, the windows and screens as well as the porch.

Any advice is welcome and appreciated. 👍😎

I really hope the Flexzilla garden hoses don't suck LOL.

But I can say the airhoses are legit. I've had one on the compressor in my pickup for 10 years, and it is still flexible and has held together. And it's always in the sun and abused.
We had some fairly high dollar good year hoses that were complete garbage comparatively.

Iíve heard about them on auto detailing forums so I imagine they are good.

I think you're going to need a traditional well built standard hose for your pressure washer. You don't want to under power the water flow, it can screw up your pump.

I might have to plant a little herb in my backyard and sell it to all the people in my retirement community as medical marijuana.

You might be on to something there!

Been down the Goodyear road.

It wasn't such a good year using them.

We've still got a few around. Dad is too cheap to get the fuck rid of them. I'll string out a 100' Flexzilla from the back of the shop before I'll unroll 10' of those good year fucks.

God they're the worst.

EDIT: Not the worst. But comparatively bad.

When one googles TinyEvel famous quotes, that one is going first on the list.

Those fancy plastic roll up hose containers, also crap. Those moveable steel hose reels, after a few years the tires go flat or the seal around the rotating bearing goes out.

Get an old wheel and mount it on the wall:-)

Also, post a shampoo bottle next to your hose to see how long it is.

This Flexilla hose kinks worse than a $10 Walmart green garden hose.

Pain in the ass.

Sorry man. The air hose is the best on the market.

A lot more pressure in that tiny hose than is in my water one.

No worries. :-)
