Hose Pipe Buying Tips

Buying a hose pipe can actually be quite difficult because of the huge range of products that are on the market. Depending on your requirement there is bound to a product suitable for your needs. Firstly, you need to decide what you will be using your hose pipe for. Is it for washing the car? Watering the garden? Follow our tips below to help you with your purchase.

  • Buy a hosepipe that is long enough to reach all corners of your garden. Although it’s possible to buy extenders it will work out more expensive and prove quite difficult if you already have an existing hose reel.
  • Take into account that you may want to use accessories with your hose, if so, buy a hose pipe that comes with adapters. The adapters are normally cheaper if bought with a hosepipe.
  • The brand of the hose is actually quite important. Here at HosePipe.org.uk we are huge fans of the Hozelock range, they are high quality and come with a decent warranty.
  • Consider a hose reel, they make it easier to move a hose around and also stop it from kinking/getting damaged.
  • Will the hose pipe be dragged over rough ground or have cars driven over it? If so, purchase a reinforced hose that is layered.
