Product Introduction

Expandable Garden Hose Construction

Expandable Garden Hose are designed in such a way that it has two layers to it. One an inner tube through which water flows and an outer fabric which is usually made of nylon.

The inner tube can be made of special elastic rubber called latex or TPC or especially designed tube. Different manufacturer’s uses different type of inner hose so the durability varies hose by hoses basis.

When water is turned from one end, the other end of the hose which has a shut off valve is turned off, so that water is blocked from one end and when the pressure builds up inside the inner tube, the inner tube starts to expends and reaches it full expanding length. After which shut off is turned on and the hose works like just a normal garden hose.

Expandable Garden Hose Characteristics:

• Expand up to 3 times length with water pressure

• Back to original length instantly after turning off water

• Lightweight, easy to handle

• Anti-abrasion, anti-UV

• kink & Tangle & Twist resistant

• Heavy duty fabric and tube without leakage

Expandable Garden Hose Application:

Expandable hose is widely used for garden/terrace watering, flower watering, car washing, house cleaning and so on.

Instructions for Using an Expandable Hose

• Before you start using your expandable hose for the first time, check that the rubber ring is installed inside the end of the hose that connects to the faucet, or the hose may leak.

• Attach the side of the hose with the female fitting and the rubber ring to the water source.

• Turn the ON / OFF valve on the far side of the hose to the OFF position.

• Turn the water on at the faucet, allowing the water pressure in the hose to increase gradually while the hose valve is closed. The hose will automatically expand up to 3 times its original length when full.

• When the hose is fully expanded, turn the ON / OFF valve at the far end of the hose to the ON position and use the hose like any ordinary garden hose.

• Screw a spray nozzle or a water wand onto the threads at the end of the hose, just like you would do on a traditional garden hose. When used without a spray nozzle, the hose will contract several feet or more when the water is turned on and flowing.

• When using a nozzle, slowly open the valve on the hose to the desired working water pressure, and then adjust the water flow with the valve on the nozzle or other attachment, if it has one.

• If the attachment does not have its own valve, adjust the flow of water using the valve on the hose.

• Make sure all connections are tight and washers are in place to prevent fittings from leaking.

• After use, turn the water off at the faucet. You can leave the hose in place for a short time, if you plan to come back soon and continue using it.

• When the hose is not in use, open the ON / OFF valve at the far end of the hose and allow the water in the hose to drain out. If you are using a nozzle, also open the nozzle. As the water begins to drain from the hose, it will automatically contract back into its original size.

• The expandable hose is designed for outdoor use in residential settings. Do not use the hose for commercial applications or for work where the water pressure must exceed 80 PSI.

Caring for Your Expandable Hose

• When you are not using the hose, turn off the water at the faucet. The hose should not be kept under pressure for long periods of time.

• Keep the water pressure in the hose under 80 PSI.

• Do not stretch-out the hose, unless it is filled with water.

• When not in use and during cold or freezing weather, completely drain the hose. If possible, store the hose indoors during the winter. Not draining the hose and storing it in freezing temperatures could cause the hose to burst.

• During hot weather, drain the hose when not in use and store it in the shade.

• Do not use the hose for delivery of hot water. Hot water can damage the hose.

• Do not drag the hose on your driveway or concrete. As it is made of polyester, this will substantially decrease the life of your hose.
