TOP 1000 REVIEWERon April 27, 2018
I've tried many expandable hoses with bad results in the past. They typically break within the first five uses, leak, etc.. So far, this has been a really great hose. Here's a few reasons I like it:
- It is extremely lightweight and easy to carry around
- The rubber washer included kept the connections tight and leak-free
- The sprayer is high quality and has great settings
- The sprayer pressure is really high. I can clean off my back deck really well with the powerful spray
- It expands when you turn the water on, and contracts when all the water drains out after shutting off the water
- It takes up far less room than my traditional hose
- It is easier to wrap up and hang up

The true test will be how long it lasts, but if it holds up to heavy use for an entire summer, this will be worth twice the price. Lugging a heavy hose around is an annoyance. Glad I found this!

This expandable garden hose from Glayko is awesome. It is designed to be easy to move around, but well constructed. It comes with brass fittings, a water shutoff valve and a bonus spray nozzle. There's a lot to like about this expandable hose.

This hose comes in a handy carrying bag. Just connect the solid brass fittings (which help prevent corrosion and increase durability) and let the water flow. The hose will expand up to the full 50 feet during use. It comes with extra rubber washers to prevent leaking. The construction of the hose keeps it lightweight, but also prevents kinks, tangles or twists. You will want to be careful of snags, though. I got it caught on my deck board during use. It pulled some of the thread around the outside, but didn't damage the actual hose in any other way. The actual hose under the outside layer is three layers of latex inner tubing, so it would take more than a splinter (apparently) to spring a leak. Once you shut off the water, the hose will shrink back down to it's original size for storage.

I'm really impressed with this expandable hose so far. I have a 50 foot standard hose on a wind-up reel that I use and it's handier than just having a coil of 50 foot hose, but it's still a hassle to unwind and then wind back up. I'm always getting kinks and leaks with it. This expandable hose already works better than that. It expands to the full 50 foot during use and then shrinks back down when I'm done. It's easy to store, easy to move around when in use, doesn't kink or tangle. The spray nozzle works great as the hose needs as little as 4 bars (60 PSI) to operate. This hose does the job and is more convenient than any other hose I've used so far and I definitely recommend it.

I have used this and like its light weight and especially I like the shower on the spray nozzle. THe shower setting is a large volume of water but gentle enough not to damage youhg plants and seedlings. I cannot testify as to how long the hose will last since I just received it this month (May). I hope it lasts at least five years, but time will tell. I am 85, so, if I live to 90, remind me and I will report again.LOL

When I first received the box that this hose came in, I thought there was no way there's a 50 foot hose inside. Turns out I was wrong. This hose is very compact and lightweight, weighing under 3 lbs. I had to try it out immediately. Everything came in an included storage bag. It was easy to hook up and the brass fittings are of good quality. It came with a sprayer attachment also that has several different spray patters. The hose itself seems to be of good quality. It did expand out to 50 feet with ease and worked great. Once the water was turned off and the hose drained, it went right back to it's original shape with ease. I would recommend this hose to anyone looking for a good quality compact hose.

We ordered the 50 foot version of this hose and absolutely love it!! Wished now that I would have gone with an even longer one because it is so nice how compact it is and doesn't get all tangled up into a big mess in my yard. Lovely green color and made of soft stretchy material. Expands quite a bit as you have the water flowing through it. Comes with a very sturdy water nozzle that has 8 setting, I believe. We have had one just like it before and it worked for year before it bit the dust. The ends of the hose are a heavy duty polished gold metal and I have found that it fits a standard spigot. Also, comes with extra washers. Definitely 2 thumbs up for this purchase.

The hose maintained consistent pressure and the spray nozzle provided a spray that covered my entire garden. With the water shut off valve, I am able to adjust the pressure coming out of the house, as to not damage some of my sensitive veggies and flowers. The seals work great at preventing leaks from the spigot (a problem I seem to have with all my other hoses). The only negative, if you want to call it that, is that I would not want to leave it out in the hot south summer heat. BUT when the hose empties of the water, which is done by simply keeping the spray nozzle pulled, the hose contracts to its pre-filled size. The storage bag makes it very easy to store on a garage shelf or on the covered patio as well as move it around to other areas around the outside of the house. I think this garden hose would be beneficial to people that have weight lifting restrictions.

I love my new Glayko 50 feet expandable hose. It came in a small carrying bag. Included was a nozzle with eight different settings and two extra washers. Very heavy fittings that attach to the faucet. One end has an on/off valve. As short as this hose is, i couldnt imagine it expanding to 50 feet but it did. It doesnt kink up like traditional hoses. This is the best part. I tried every setting on the nozzle. It even has a mist setting. I used that to water my plants. This is an excellent purchase at a very low price. I wasnt expecting it to be this nice or work this well. I left it attached to the faucet and hung it up. So easy cause its very short when all the water is out of it. Its very light weight. I will never purchase a traditional hose again. It doesnt take up hardly any space. I definately recommend.

Super impressed with this hose. I was a bit skeptical at first because it is so small but my mind was soon changed. I hooked it up and put the sprayer on. When I turned the water in, the hose started to expand and lengthen into a more typical garden hose. When I was finished, I left the sprayer on to remove the water from the hose and it shrunk back up into its original state. Very limp and noodley. Super easy to wind it up and put away. It came with a storage bag, but I most likely won’t use it since my hoses stay out during the summer months. Overall super impressed and happy with this buy. Would definitely buy again and recommend to others.

The other day I spent about five minutes unkinking my old water hose in the back yard. Our old hose was extra heavy because my husband spent extra to not have a hose bust after one season in the TX heat. However, this Glayko hose has proven that a quality hose doesn’t have to be heavy! It weighs under 3 pounds! I love how light it is and how takes up so little space at a 1/3 of the size of my traditional hose. The nozzle included has several spray functions. Also included is a storage bag and extra washers. Fluke thought of it all at an affordable price. I recommend this hose to those who want to say goodbye to their tradition hose!

OH MY GOODNESS, I LOVE THIS HOSE!!
I was kind of skeptical that this hose would not live up to my expectations. I WAS SO WRONG! I have a big hose real and a long hose out front of my house now. Well, let me update you because that is in the garbage now. I hooked this small hose up and turned the water on and expands right out to be 50 foot like my old bulky one. It works great. It comes with a sprayer. And the amazing thing is when you turn it off and spray the water out of it, it shrinks right back to the original small size. This hose is sturdy and has brass connections on it. I will never buy another old type of hose again. This thing is amazing!!!!
