ColorStorm Professional Rubber Hose
This professional grade hose is made from heavy-duty "crackless" EPDM rubber that is resistant to abrasion and weathering. Hexagonal shape reduces kinking while nickel plated brass fittings are crush-proof. This bright yellow hose enhances visibility to prevent tripping.
I have been using Dramm Colorstorm hoses for a long time. They are an excellent product compared to other similar products on the market. I would like to see the female hose connection improved by added depth in the threaded area.
Excellent product. Hose in 5/8 is easy to work with and doesn't kink.
I just bought my second Colorstorm hose. I appreciate the solid construction, durability, and the availability of larger diameters to allow better water flow.
I picked up my first Colorstorm hose a decade ago and used it extensively to fill 200 and 100-gallon tanks in my professional spray business. I've never had a problem with this hose. It has stood up to a abuse, all kinds of extreme temperatures, and chemicals.
I usually get Gilmore Flexogen but the ends of my last hose got cracked and bent. I expected it to fail at any minute. The ColorStorm has much (MUCH) better built fittings and appears to be a much more rugged garden hose. I didn't know if I'd like the yellow, but as it ends up, I like it very much. It stays a bit cooler than the gray Flexogen that I had before.
The hoses kinks like no other hose I have ever owned . Would never buy again , spent over 85 dollars for a headache
I purchased 2_- 100 foot hoses. They are certainly durable. But they are very heavy. Consider buying shorter lenghts and using a quick disconnect so that you don't have kto drag the hose too far.
I have had many hoses, about one every couple of years. It's hard to resist a $10 hose when this one is much more expensive, but what you lose up front you save many times over in time and ease of use. This hose will NOT kink, split, bind, or break. It's hexagonal shape makes storage on the hose winder I use very easy. The fitting ends are well forged brass. I do not expect to need another hose ever again, unless it's adding another Dramm Colorstorm.
My local garden store recommended this hose as the last one you will ever buy!. After buying my first one, I can tell you that I absolutely believe them. My only wish is that it came in 150' length, so I could buy another!
