I have this hose. It's a good hose but it does kink. Also it's 1/2 inch, not 5/8.

I have it as well, got excited when I saw the advertised price last time round and rushed to the store only to find out it's only 1/2", for whatever reason the picture of it is extremely misleading and makes it look a lot more heavy duty than it is. I couldn't even uncoil it for the first time without battling with the kinks for a good while.

I once bought a cheapo from Home Depot several years back. It was a real herculean task Disappointed But Relieved Face to deal with all those kinks. Was actually glad Face With Tears Of Joy when I threw it away after a season.
Isn't it great to live in the 21st century where deleting history has become more important than making it.

Would you say it's kinky? ;)

So, flexzilla is the way to go ? It's on sale in CT.

Any other recommendations?

That's regular price on the Flexzilla. Never seen it below $69. They just make you think it's on sale by placing it in the flyer.

I have 2 flexzilla hoses, a 50' and a 100'. The 50' I bought maybe 3 years ago and is a different style than the 100' which I bought maybe 1 year ago. The older hose has a green line running down the length of the hose and feels less substantial than the newer hose. Both are excellent hoses IMO and seem the same performance wise. That being said the newer style hose does seem like it would last longer.

Flexzilla hoses greatly resist kinking, are nice and flexible, and have no memory. The only real problem I've heard of and experienced is that they try to spin in your hand (side effect of the anti-kink, I think). Pretty good solution is just to get quick connects so that the attachment is able to stay stationary while the hose twists. Oh, and get a hose reel.

I think you can actually get them from leevalley for cheaper, unless they've raised their prices this year.

FYI, the one in the US link is NOT the same hose. I went to HD this morning and checked. The one in the Canadian flyer is not made by Goodyear, nor is it 5/8". It's only 1/2" and very lightweight. Don't think it's that great quality. Don't be misled by the OP's post.

I bought this one from the US: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Continental- ... /100676339
it is very very good. This is the comparable one in Canada, not the one in the flyer: https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.58-i ... 24156.html


For those looking for a hose, go with the Continental in the states or the Waterworks one in Canada. Whichever hose you pick, make sure you always use rubber. :-P

Just buy a good air hose and put a hose attachment on the end (cut normal ends off). Works great and they don't kink.

If you guys frequent the states. Sears craftsman has the rubber hoses on sale quite often. $20 for 50ft, $40 for 100ft is what I remember (USD).

Lifetime warranty. I punctured one (my fault) and was replaced at Sears usa with no receipt no questions asked

I just need a 50 ft one to clean our a/c compressor as we have two 25 ft. ones from Home Hardware that have so far been very durable.

Can I really save electricity spraying the compressor?

Also, can I just buy an adapter to put the two hoses together? We don't have a lot of space in the garage.
