as you read this thread, seems does not matter which brand you get, they have some issues more or less , at least with costco one, you can always return it if something goes south.

This is my 2nd Flexzilla (now I have 1 in front and 1 in back), love it! Never kinks, durable, flexible and light. I live 5 minutes from the Burnaby HD vs a 20+ minute drive to Coquitlam KMS Tools, plus the extra $6 savings. I was actually just looking to avoid the drive and get a simple 1:1 price match, totally forgot they would beat it!

Home Depot carries: https://www.homedepot.ca/product/flexzi ... 1001098702 at $61.98

Show the KMS Tool ad (in deal URL) to the HD cashier and they will knock 10% ($6) off the $59.95, $60.43 with BC taxes included.
Point out that the model # HFZG550YW is identical, should be able to match like I did (that's all they really look for if there's a model#). The full model# is different as some pointed out but the cashiers don't usually care unless you act like an ass or get someone who's a stickler. I was prepared to explain that HD added on extra numbers to the end, CA usually means Canadian etc, 20 for the year but the cashier saw the first part matched and just okayed it.

Seems like a good deal to me?
Are you talking about the Flexzilla hose......

I guess we can agree to disagree. For me and many others, flexzilla is the best hose we've ever had. It's light, doesn't coil and is has no issues with being stepped or being pulled against bricks.

But to be honest it's a hose. If a dollar store one works for you, all the best.

It resists kinking and "untwists" naturally and is soft when unpressurized with water. I have one which outlasted two other hoses so the last time I had to replace the front yard hose I bought another. I keep it outdoors in the winter and has never given me a problem. It's like what a Dewalt was from yesteryear. Its a prosumer product that you buy once and never dies.

Yeah, I use both my hoses with wheel carts. Flexzilla has been the best compared to the regular green/gray hoses of other brands. With those other ones, occasionally I'd have to unwind the wheel to twist or unkink a portion of the hose that had compacted and not allowing pressure out. Never had to worry about Flexzilla doing that and it's held up for gardening and awesome using quick connects for my pressure washer when I need.

Having bought a flexzilla hose I would agree it’s the best. Last time I was at KMS I saw the magnum line so I bought one.
Cheaper and very comparable to the flexzilla!
I see they have a new serpent line too now which has the same description just a bit more $.

i need to replace hose in garden as it gets kinks all over the place, they're the older style green color ones. Will check at my local store to see if these are in stock.

Haaaa the good ol' days! Drinking water directly from the hose, no bike helmet, playing on a hand made raft in the swamp without a life saving jacket, while all kind if bugs were biting us... Flushed FaceGrinning Face

I got this hose at HD. Be aware that it's not compatible with some hose reel designs. Those 'swivel grip' ends are huge, and may not spool onto the hose reel spindle, depending on the connection design.
