Frequently Asked Questions about Hoses
The Superflex Hose is a high performing hose with a thick inner wall lining , 9/10 Kink Resistance Rating and 8 year warranty. It is the best option if you're looking for a hose to stand the test of time or if you live in a frost-prone or high heat area.
It comes complete with no-burst hose end fittings pre-fitted, for your convenience. If you want to join this hose to another Hoselink-fitted hose, the "Fitted" option is for you. If you want a complete set from the tap through to sprayer, we recommend the "Kit" option, which includes the hose with pre-fitted hose end connectors and sprayer.
Yes. The Weeper and Soaker Hoses feature male / female threads at each end of the hose, allowing you to join more than one length together. The maximum length we recommend is 30m for correct functioning.
The Superflex hoses can support a maximum water temperature of 60°C.
The hose in Retractable Hose Reels can withstand internal temperatures up to 40°C.
The Superflex Hose is suitable for climates ranging from -5°C to 50°C.
Yes, our longest hose is 30 metres - this applies to Retractable Hose Reels and the Superflex garden hose.
Garden hoses can be extended if required. Hoses fitted with Hoselink Hose End fittings can easily couple together to get the length you need, thanks to the no-burst nature of our hose connectors.
Some customers even opt to use our Retractable Hose Reel Leader Hose Extensions, to extend short distances of up to 5 metres. It's important to note that any added length will not retract back into the Retractable Hose Reel casing and that adding a long length can potentially reduce water pressure.
The Superflex Hose has a Kink Resistaince Rating of 9 out of 10.
Yes. All of our watering accessories including sprinklers and sprayers are fully compatible. The commonality is the 3/4 inch BSP thread featured on all our products. Remember, you'll need an 18mm Accessory Connector to screw into each sprinkler or sprayer.
12mm hoses are a standard size used in residential gardens, generally for personal use. 18mm hoses are a commercial size hose used on large properties and in an industrial capacity.
Hoselink fittings come in both sizes - 12mm(Warm Grey) and 18mm (Pale Green).
No, all our hoses come pre-fitted with Hoselink Hose End Connections as standard.
A Soaker Hose is a plastic hose with holes throughout its length and emits a spray outwards, similar to a sprinkler. A Weeper Hose slowly "weeps" water and looks like it is dripping. Because Weeper Hoses drip directly into the ground underneath them, they are suitable for watering garden beds, can be buried under mulch and are useful for conserving water. Soaker Hoses, on the other hand, act more like a sprinkler. Many people like to use them on nature strips or other long sections of garden.
In order to attach a 'click on' hose to a Hoselink hose, you will need to replace the click on end with a standard Hoselink Hose end connector so you can couple the hoses together.
Yes, with ease! All our hoses come pre-fitted with Hoselink Hose End Fittings, so to join two Hoselink hoses together is as easy as lining up each fittings and twisting!
We recommend storing your hose in large loops over a hose hanger. This will make it easier to retrieve the hose for its next use and help prevent it from twisting. Hoselink sells a range of hose holders to suit the style of your home.
