Lightweight and very flexible, this hose is easy and comfortable to use and to carry and move around from job to job. Its five layers make it anti-kink and crushproof, but it’s flexible enough to uncoil easily. Recoiling was a little trickier but not too frustrating and all in all this is a great, strong hose for everyday use.
What jobs is the Hozelock Ultimate hose best used for?
With a high burst pressure of 40 bars the Hozelock Ultimate is ideal for all watering and cleaning jobs and strong enough to cope with the high water pressure of a pressure washer and a sprinkler.
