Throughout my life, I owned a number of rubber garden hoses. They all fail. Plus they are really heavy. Today I’ll discuss an alternative that provides more durability and is lightweight. Yes, I’ll provide an Amazon link which does earn me a small commission. No freebies here, I had to buy one for myself.

TheFitLife Stainless Steel Metal Garden HoseMy choice was TheFitLife Stainless Steel Metal Garden Hose. As I looked at the photo, I assumed it was a similar size to rubber hoses. The diameter of the house is much smaller than I expected and I have no complaints with that. That will undoubtedly allow less water to move thought it, but that’s fine with me.

I really like the feel of the hose and it is much lighter than expected. Sure, the weight is listed online, but even the box seemed very light to me. It does include a sprayer nozzle. Others have said it isn’t the greatest nozzle ever and I had very low expectations. For my needs, it is just fine. I’m just thrilled to have a hose with a small footprint to use on my deck.
