How is the Claber Silver Green hose made?

This hose is made up of five layers of material including a helix-patterned braid, which makes it strong and capable of excellent stability at high water pressure. It’s UV-resistant and has anti-algal properties and is safe to use, containing no heavy metals or phthalates.

What is the Claber Silver Green hose like to use?

This hose is comfortable to use when watering by hand and is easy and light to move around the garden. Its thick construction makes it kink and twist free so watering and dragging it about on the job is a breeze. Its slightly textured surface provides good grip on the connectors making it easy to slip into a pressure washer or a hand spray gun and uncoiling and recoiling it when you’re finished with it is straightforward.

Its pale silver colouring helps the Claber Silver Green hose to blend into garden well so it’s not too obtrusive when in use or when coiled or hanging up.

What jobs is the Claber Silver Green hose best used for?

With a high burst pressure of a whopping 48 bars this tough hose is ideal for use with a pressure washer or sprinkler, but can also be used for all day to day watering and cleaning jobs.

It comes in lengths of 25m and 50m and also in widths of 12-17mm and 14-19mm, so is versatile and useful in most size gardens.

Is the Claber Silver Green hose good value for money?

This was the second most expensive hose we tested, at £1.70 per metre of hose, but it comes with a long 30-year guarantee and is strong and tough. We think this makes it good value for money.
