Quick Overview

Garden hoses are commonly used to transport water for gardeninglawn care and other landscaping purposes
They are also used for outdoor cleaning of items such as vehicles equipment building exteriors and animals
Garden hoses are typically made of extruded synthetic rubber or soft plastic, often reinforced with an internal web of fibers
As a result of these materials garden hoses are flexible and their smooth exterior facilitates pulling them past trees posts and other obstacles
Garden hoses are also generally tough enough to survive scraping on rocks and being stepped on without damage or leaking
Each male end of a typical garden hose can mate with the female connector on another which allows multiple garden hoses to be linked end-to-end to increase their overall length. Small rubber or plastic washers (often confusingly called “hose washers”) are used in female ends to prevent leakage because the threads are not tapered and are not used to create a seal
Sometimes the gaskets stiffen disintegrate or fall out of older hoses which results in pressurized leakage spraying from the hose; simply replacing the washer insert often fixes the problem
Most garden hoses are not rated for use with hot water and their packaging will often specify whether or not this is the case Leaving non-reinforced hoses in the hot sun while pressurized can cause them to burst
