I've seen the light. I bought a rubber

I've seen the light. I bought a rubber hose.

My one year old 100' vinyl hose from Costco sprung a leak. Unhooked it from the reel. Coiled it all up. (After fighting with it) Brought it back for a refund. Now hoseless, I researched around to see if there have been any new advancements in kink free, super strong, hose material technology. Nothing. I remembered a previous thread here about hoses and people loving their rubber hoses, so I entrusted the MRF collective and bought some rubber ones. Craftsman rubber hoses to be exact. The moment I unboxed, and unwound them, I can tell the difference in quality to "high-end" vinyl hoses. The rubber hose has a nice heft and "drape" to it. It unrolled completely flat. No fighting with the recoil memory. It just lay there like a limp noodle on the driveway in the most beautiful way possible. It brought a tear to my eye. I hooked it up to the hose bib and sprayed to my hearts content. What a great hose. Let's see how long it'll last. Hopefully the outer finish won't degrade and leave black streaks everywhere and on my hands..

HERE'S THE DEAL:

Craftsman 50' 5/8 is $41.90 at Amazon
Craftsman 50' 5/8 is $34.99 at Sears
Craftsman 50' 5/8 is $29.99 at KMart

KMart and Sears are affiliated so I bought 2 " KMart" Craftsman hoses through Sears.com with a save $10 coupon (by signing up for the email list) and free shipping. SWEET!

I purchased a Craftsman rubber hose some 35 years ago, it was smoke damaged only affected the packaging, still going strong. I think I paid at the time ten bucks each for two.

Bought two Craftsman rubber hoses the last time I moved, and they've been going strong ever since.

That was 18 years ago.

I believe the 50' Rubber Craftsman hose were $15-$25 the other day at sears according to dealnews.com... I own two 50' for my back yard and just purchased a 100' for the front yard.

According to the comments it looks like it was on sale for 7 hours at the sale price before it sold out. 10pm–5am EST. LOL I had no chance at that.

Hose Poetry, a great name for a band...



Once we place nonhuman animals outside our sphere of moral consideration
and treat them as things we use to satisfy our own desires,
the outcome is predictable.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men
except by believing all possible evil
of evil men.
