I have a big garden where I grow vegetables organically. The plastics in other hoses contain lead and plasticizers that get in the water and are harmful to humans--so they carry a warning label. I researched what hoses to use that are drinking safe and found this to be the one I like best. I just got my gatorhydes, so I will update this review if I come across anything unexpected later. So far I am happy with these benefits:

* Safer: Plastic and end fittings are drinking water safe. The hose does not smell noticeably or impart a taste to the water I can detect. Better for your family.
* Greener: Made with 50% recycled materials and very tough so it may not need to be replaced as often. Better for mother earth--and your wallet.
* Stronger: Carries a limited lifetime warranty, maker says it is up to 3X more durable, withstands 165 degrees below zero.
* Lighter than what I had by a significant margin.
* Easier to move--does not get stuck as easy.

Many other drinking safe hoses I found were made for boats and RVs--did not have all the advantages above, and were too thin or wimpy for my use. "Water Right" brand hoses were also interesting and also made from drinking safe polyurethane. I will try them as well.

Update - 6 years later - June 2014

These hoses still look new and work great. No leaks. One kink caused by me forcing a hose a way it did not want to go--the kink did not hurt the hose--but I am surprised I was able to bend it, they are so strong. I highly recommend these. The ends are even still shiny. Very well made.

This hose is very well made. I've owned it for two seasons now, and it's holding up to the harsh winter and summer weather better than any vinyl hose I've used. Definitely worth the extra cost. The peace of mind not worrying about how safe the water might be is an additional plus. Recommended.

Okay, This hose sounded great in the advertisements but in reality it fell pretty short for my purposes. I bought this hose to use in my front yard. It resides on standard wall mount hose holder. The hose is unwieldy . It constantly wants to jerk around every time I try to unroll it because it is so stiff due to it's ridges and external coating. It kinked the very first time I tried to uncoil it for use. It has since kinked several times. I often use it to wash my car and it is an absolute liability around nice cars. It is even money to jump up and slap the car pretty hard as I'm moving from one side of the car to the other. It's a scratch waiting to happen if the hose has picked up any dirt, small rocks, etc. It has vicious positional memory from being coiled and short of uncoiling the entire hose before use and straightening the whole hose out there is no good way to avoid this. Coiling the hose back up is equally painful; it fights, it jumps, it unrolls itself right off the hose holder, it twists, it does everything except cooperate. I don't even like to use this hose for watering my front yard and that only takes 20 minutes. For me it comes down to this, if it is difficult to use, likely to cause damage to expensive property (like my C6 Z06 Corvette), it is not worth having. I am sorry that I ever bought this hose. It's a real stinker! If you are the type to learn from the mistakes of other people, consider this a lesson learned and look elsewhere. I hope this review helps!
