Flexzilla Garden Hose

The Flexzilla garden hose solves the frustration and annoyance that happens when gardening. A common complaint is having the hose kink. Then when you tug to unkink it, the nozzle twists in your hands with the sudden burst of water pressure. It’s no fun.

Nor is it fun to have a hose wanting to stay curled up the way it’s stored. You want a hose that will lie flat when you’re using it.

The Flexzilla Water Hose may be just what you need. The hose itself is crafted from a lightweight hybrid polymer. That ensures it lies flat without kinking under pressure.

It also is easier to pull around the yard. And it won’t get stuck when you have to weave it between pots and plants.
But aren’t most hoses like that?

What Makes Flexzilla Great

Many vinyl hoses kink up no matter what you’re doing. They get stuck on corners. And when you tug, you just get frustrated.

Rubber garden hoses don’t kink. But they are fairly heavy and not easy to pick up and move around. This can get very noticeable over a 50-foot length.

Also, rubber hoses tend to like to stay coiled up and will try to curl back around into a coil when straightening it out.

Flexzilla garden hoses were engineered to make homeowner’s lives easier. They are light and easy to pick up and move around. These hoses are kink resistant yet easy to store on a hose wheel, and can even perform well in sub-zero temperatures.

If you live in the desert, the hose is rated up to 150F ambient temperature as well.

All of the Flexzilla garden hoses are durable and repairable. You can replace the couplings and O-rings if needed. Some people buy the longer length hoses and cut them in half.

The male and female fittings are available to buy online. These ends clamp on instead of needing crimping.

You may find these hoses advertised as Legacy Flexzilla. Legacy is the company based in Iowa. They were founded in 1986 and are a family business.
