Homeowners choosing a new hose for their backyard or small business owners may wonder how to select the correct hose. Deciphering the key differences between hose types is a sure way to make your lawn perfect. The video first showed examples of three 75-foot hoses. The diameter sizes available for these hoses are 1/2-inch, 5/8-inch, and 3/4-inch hoses.
Heavy Duty Hoses
All these hoses are heavy duty hoses. A heavy duty hose is made from a thick, very durable material.
The smallest diameter hoses are adequate for small yards. If someone wants a hose to fill troughs or large containers of water, the widest diameter is preferable, as larger diameters mean that water comes out more quickly.
Other Hose Strengths
In addition to heavy duty hoses, there are also medium and super-heavy weights. The area where someone plans to use the hose can help narrow down which type to choose. If the user must pull the hose across gravel, concrete, or bricks, a super heavy duty hose is a good choice. Another factor in the selection is hose color; while gray hoses can blend into the grass and other materials in their yard, they may prefer a bright green hose, so it can easily be seen when mowing the lawn.
