+++++Update after 1 year+++++++
Dropped the hose in the grass and the brass fitting with the spray head popped off. The weld to hold it on broke. Not a big deal put a hose clamp on, but not what I expected when I bought this and when I originally wrote the review, I expected a 5 Year care-free hose. A little disappointed but it's not a deal breaker for me.
Owned for over 8 months-Heavy Guage, not the light-weight stuff! ****** 1 YR UPDATE *******
+++2 year update++++After only 2 years a pinhole leak in the middle of the hose. Not near anything, always used in the grassy area so not scraped, not pulled; just an inferior product I guess. I always covered it in the winter and in the shade in the summer. I have to say I am very very disappointed, and do NOT advise buying.
Let's start with the solid brass couplings. Brass. High quality brass. 'Nuff said. The threading is smooth and they form a nice watertight seal.
The hose material itself is high quality. At 5/8" diameter, it's also thicker than a lot of other coiled hoses. Quality-wise, this coiled hose blows any other coiled hose I've used out of the water. Even the spring on the hose bib end that prevents kinking/sheer on the connector is heavy grade.
At 50' in length, this hose is heavy. It's klunky to use. I guess that's the trade-off for having a practical length. If you pull on it to try and reposition it (for instance, to give yourself more slack to work with), the weight makes it want to stay right where it is; the end you're holding onto stretches, but the main body doesn't move much. You end up "reeling in" more than "tugging" in order to get the hose where you need it.
Along those same lines, a coiled hose is basically a spring, so you are constantly, 100% of the time, fighting against spring tension as you're watering.
A defect (IMO) in the design of most (if not all) coiled hoses is that they are coiled from end to end. This one suffers from that same design flaw, unfortunately. I believe it would be much more useful if each end had a small length of straight, normal, uncoiled hose to it.
The 3-star rating may seem low--and perhaps it is--but it's the average of 5-star quality in a 1-star design. [I really hate working with a coiled hose.]
Be aware that because the hose is 5/8" (versus most coil hoses being 3/8" to 1/2"), when filled with water it is noticeably heavier than narrower hoses. However, having said that, my 83 year old mother uses this hose easily.
The thicker gauge of the hose allows slightly better water flow. I am running a fairly long hose around the house that attaches to this hose in order to water plants on a porch. I tested this hose with a 3/8" hose and, while not a huge difference, there is a noticeable difference in the flow of water from the hose (I measured by comparing how far a narrow stream of water would go).
I've noticed that the spring that is supposed to protect the hose from bending too far at the connection to the facet slips down and is effectively useless.
Overall, having only used for a month or two, the hose is doing well.
