Many people do not think about how important a good PVC garden hose is until they buy a bad one. Dragging a PVC garden hose from the flowerbed to the vegetable garden to the backyard pool all summer can create serious wear and tear on any hose. Having one that can withstand regular use, provide the function needed, and hold up against the elements is essential. There are several things to consider when buying a PVC garden hose to ensure it is a good one, such as features, material, length, and color.
Choose a Material
There are two basic PVC garden hose types, a vinyl PVC garden hose, and a rubber garden hose. Vinyl garden hoses come in a variety of quality levels, as do rubber hoses. The amount of plies that a hose offers is the first indicator of quality, and the next would be if it is reinforced with a mesh material in between the layers.
