HOZELOCK - Superhoze Expanding Hose 15 m : Flexible Hose, Stretches up to 3x Original Length | With 2 Aquastop Fittings for a Watertight Connection: Ready to Use [8215A1240]
About this deal
I prefer brass metal fittings and some competitors produce solid brass connectors on their expandable hoses but there’s no metal to be found on the Superhoze. Made from a durable, lightweight polyester outer and a natural runner core, superhoze is superlight and easy to manoeuvre around your garden.

I disliked the colour, and as it doesn’t come with a reel, I’ll have to look at it draped over the tap whenever I’m in the garden.
It did come with a reducer for fitting to smaller outside taps (there are two tap sizes in the UK).

In other words, if I wanted to create a jet of water from the nozzle, it would come out so fast that the pipe shrank from 15m to 5m in less than 30 seconds. The only way for me to keep the hose pipe fully expanded was to open the nozzle slightly so the rate of water exiting the pipe was the same as it was entering from the tap. Easy to Store – Due to its compact size after use, Superhoze is easy to store away on a Hose Hanger.
Superhoze Hints & Tips
The spray nozzle is the basic version, and unlike some competing products, it doesn’t come with a spray gun or an inline tap which I feel every expandable hose should have. But if you’ve ever used this cheap nozzle before, you’ll know that when opened slightly, it sprays wide and all over the place.

Superhoze is made up from a highly elastic inner core and a soft, yet robust outer, meaning that there are no hard materials to fold or bend which can create kinks or tangles in some regular garden hoses. As superhoze is filled with water and expands, the two independent layers glide smoothly over each other, ensuring a continuous water-flow. The outer sleeve of the hose left me wondering how long it would last. I can’t imagine getting years of use if it’s frequently dragged over concrete, patios or gravel etc.
