After spending too much money on a multitude of hoses that I disliked, I finally stumbled upon the answer to the perfect garden hose.

I have to agree about good quality hoses. We have rights to an irrigation ditch so we're always hauling hoses all over our large lot. Most of our hoses are 3/4 inch and it's getting harder and harder to get good brass parts to repair the ends when they finally break.

Yes, where do you get repair bits for 3/4" hoses? I run 2 100 footers off of heavy duty (shockingly expensive, but worth it) hose reels and know I will need the parts someday.

Thumbs up Rubber hoses are simply the best. Even though heavier, they are worth it.
