- Cheap Plastic Hose Review by Dan Dixon
Quality Price Value
This SKU used to be a Gilmour 6-ply rubber hose. This hose is plastic and on the label it is not recommended below 55F. In OHIO that's 3/4 of the year and further the water from my well is 53F. The hose becomes inflexible once there's water in it, which results in a catastrophe if you accidentally kink it with water running. The former hose (for that price) weighed 38 lbs. This one weighs 12 lbs. You can figure it out.
I'm a truck farmer and bought these to irrigate sweet corn fields, they are not worth the time nor the money.
