Neovingian wrote: The swivel grip version of this is awesome, I replaced all mine with these, and still no leaks.... a week after I got mine from HD, I scored a sweet deal on amazon for a new swivel grip 75' hose w/ slightly damaged packaging for $62. Was a bit hesitant at first when hose arrived it was new, the paper and bag it arrived in was worn but worked perfectly. They do pop up from time to time.

One thing to note if you see a really low priced flexzilla hose, double check the grip, as they make different model hoses, one with green/grey plastic or metallic non swivel tip, and the betteer version with the swivel grip, the one at HD is the one with the swivel grip, the one at KMS from the photo appears to be the one without the swivel grip. Because its a different photo and model hose the HD may decline the PM with KMS, but with the $5 HD sign up coupon brings it down to $56
Can confirm that the swivel grip version is the best hose I've ever used.

Two things:
1. I know dis is RFD but for the hassle and time spent PMing HD, wouldn't it be better to support the local guys and buy at KMS?
2. I don't know what the inside looks like but my flexzilla developed black spots (mold?) All along it. Still the best hose ever
Telling RFDers to do ANYTHING that might cost them more money? Blasphemy! Face With Tears Of Joy

That aside... This is a great deal either way. $25 shipping for two of them from KMS to here me in Oakville, and I doubt my local HD will price match (since KMS isn't local). So it ends up being cheaper to get it at HD, for me.

they'll match but not beat the KMS online price.

Buy a good quality rubber hose. You won't be replacing them every few years like nylon and plastic hoses.

You should put YMMV in the title to warn people that the items are not identical.
HD is a swivel grip and KMS is not. This could potentially be an issue.

Pardon my ignorance, but even after reading the Swivelgrip features from the packaging picture, I still cant really tell what benefit it is giving over the regular grip version.

I bought a regular grip 25' flexzilla hose earlier this summer off amazon, and its such a great quality hose. The regular grips are great already with excellent connection to my spray nozzles with zero leaks, but wish I knew what the swivelgrip would benefit me.

I"m a big fan of the Stanley ExoJacket hose. Lifetime warranty, similar concept.

I have been using Flexzilla hoses for several years now and never had an issue. After replacing hoses regularly, these are by far the best hoses I have ever had. I also use their air hoses, and same excellent quality applies.

Great hose. Wish HD carried the 100' to price match. I actually prefer the old style grip

I would love one of these fancy hoses... but I found the trick with dealing with cheap hoses. If you can, try to run hot water to the garage or yard.

Before putting away the hose, I always run hot water through it and it softens up the rubber of my crappy $10 hose. I used this hose with no leaks for 4 years. It's kept in a warm garage (ambient heat from the main floor above) throughout the winters.

I guess if you let the water run a bit to get all the standing water out of it before drinking/filling up the RV, you're getting most of the nastiness out of there.
Same never heard of the word "potable" until we first bought a PUP, have upgraded a couple of RV's since.

At home I won't buy/use anything except rubber uses. At the RV, potable hoses are cheap, adverse health effects of using a regular hose aren't immediate. The inconvenience is worse in campgrounds with water hookup, running the line every time before use, to the point people will just end up skipping it.

I camel'd this one for $18:

I made the mistake of filling my RV tank with normal green hose. All i could taste and smell was rubber. I think it has more to do with hose composition than anything else. You can buy 25’ cameo hose off amazon made for drinking water for under $12, so don’t know what scam they would be running. I bought three and just connect if i need more length. Cheaper than buying longer ones and rarely need more than 2 25’ lengths

Says on the HD website that you contact their Customer Service team for price match/beat before buying. It would be easier to do this in store if you're close enough to one though

I already have a 50' Flexzilla, but really what I prefer is a 100' hose. Does anyone know if I can connect two 50' Flexzilla back-to-back to form a 100' hose? Do I need any special connectors to adjoin the two hoses?

On the website it says you can connect any 2 hoses flexzilla hoses to increase the length, so in your case 2 X50' hoses should work to form a 100' hose, I've also read that in a few gardening forums before it would & many times works out cheaper than purchasing their 100' hose which is normally $200+

it's lighter than most heavy duty hoses, easier to clean, and doesn't leak. Honestly, you just have to try it out.
