This 18mm garden hose is strong, durable and flexible. Typically used in commercial and rural applications, 18mm hoses have a larger internal hose diameter to increase water flow and pressure.
Hoselink’s new 18mm Hose features a three-layer material knit and thick wall design that helps prevent kinks and twists. Thanks to its high quality construction, this hose is built to last and you’ll enjoy using it for years to come.
This hose comes with a full set of 18mm Hose Fittings, with two 18mm Hose Connectors pre-fitted, plus an 18mm Tap Connector and 18mm Accessory Connector. Simply add your preferred or existing sprayer to complete the set up.
The hose has been tested to 500psi so you can rely on it not to burst or break under high water pressure. Additionally, with its high abrasion resistance there is no need to worry about damage from dirt, debris or rubble.
The 18mm Hose is a hard wearing hose that will retain its shape and consistency even in the toughest weather conditions. It is suitable for climates ranging from -5°C to 50°C and has been UV stabilised to prevent damage from the harsh Australian sun. From the height of summer to the frosts of winter, your heavy duty 18mm Hose will remain flexible and easy to use all year round.
All Hoselink garden hoses are BPA and lead free.

Q. Can I use 18mm hose fittings with my regular green and yellow 12mm Hoselink hose fittings?
A. The O'Ring to O'Ring faces are not compatible between the 12mm and 18mm range. However you can make a connection between the 2 systems by coupling an 18mm Accessory Connector into a 12mm Tap Connector (or vice versa).
Q. Can I fit 18mm hose fittings to a standard garden hose?
A. 18mm hose fittings have been designed specifically for use with 18mm internal diameter garden hoses and cannot be used with regular 12mm garden hoses.
Q. Why would I use 18mm hoses and fittings?
A. Larger internal 18mm diameter hoses and fittings are typically used in low water pressure situations, or where a high volume of water is required. They are often used in commercial situations such as at sporting fields, golf courses, nurseries, farms and parks. Many people in rural situations use these hoses where water pressure is very low, such as supply from a dam or tank. Anyone can choose to use 18mm hoses and fittings but they're typically used as a solution to low water pressure.
Q. What are the locking tabs for?
A. Our 18mm hose fittings have been designed with locking tabs to ensure they never, ever twist apart. We DO NOT recommend you insert these to begin with as once installed, they cannot be removed (and may get in the way of easy use). They may be useful in situations where the weight and particular use pulls the fittings apart, such as at a hose join. In this instance, you can insert a locking tab (on one side only is necessary) to ensure the fittings won't twist apart.
Q. Why aren't the 18mm fittings green and yellow?
A. We wanted to make it easy for customers who use both 12mm and 18mm hose fittings to identify which is which.

Outside the "package"

Disappointed that I cannot purchase a hose reel to go with the hose as they only have reels and hoses as packages.
Thank you for your review.
We have only just recently brought out the 18mm range, therefore we do only have a limited range available at this stage.
With the 18mm hose being so large and heavy, a hose reel would have to be manufactured differently to our 12mm range to suit. Also, to get a decent length of 18mm hose inside the reel would mean the casing would have to be huge to accomodate this.
I will pass this onto our production team for review and hopefully they will be able to work something out in the future.
If you do have any further questions regarding this product please call our Customer Service Team on 1300 900 617 (Mon-Fri 9am to 5pm, AEST)

Perfect for rural irrigation

The hose and connectors are working well for our recently planted tees and native garden. We used to experience kinks in the 12mm hose when moving around as we water over a 60m span but the 18mm hose does not kink. Also, have you thought of producing a reducer connector, 18mm to 12mm?
Thank you for leaving us a review with your feedback.
That is a great suggestion and we will be sure to pass this along to our Production Team.
