Product Testing

Over the years, Hoselink has carried out numerous tests to prove how superior Hoselink Garden Hose Connectors are, in comparison to any other hose connection system available.

Collapsible content

Testing Summary

The CSIRO testing results proved that Hoselink fittings could be subject to extremely high water pressure (over 200 PSI) and they would never burst off the tap or hose, bearing in mind the average Australian garden tap pressure is usually in the range of 30-100 PSI. 

The USA testing proved that when Hoselink fittings were subject to two months of continuous water flow, consisting of different temperatures and water pressures, it was far superior to the old, unreliable click-on style fitting. These fittings, on average, lasted approximately 2.5 hours, while the Hoselink fittings were still in perfect working condition after two months! 

CSIRO Testing

Hoselink commissioned the CSIRO to carry out rigorous testing of the Hoselink Hose Fittings range. The following tests were conducted:

Hydrostatic pressure tests
Longitudinal load tests
Bending moment tests

The purpose of these tests was to determine:

- Maximum pressure the fittings would absorb (to destruction)
- Maximum pressure at which leakage occurred
- The performance of the Hose Retention System
- The ability of the product to absorb pressure applied at right angles (to a hose being pulled when fully extended)

In summary, the testing produced the following results:

The pressures absorbed by Hoselink, before destruction, far exceeded the pressures that any normal Australian taps would ever experience. More often than not, the hose would split open before our fittings broke.

USA Testing

The Product Testing Engineer at Dayco Inc. in USA, undertook the following testing with remarkable results:

Hoselink fittings were tested by connecting a hose to a tank that generated continuous cycles of water throughout the day, without interruption, for up to 480 cycles per day.

The tank runs cycles of both hot and cold water. Hot water ranged from 120 - 140 Degrees Fahrenheit, while cold water was generally anything less than 80 Degrees Fahrenheit.

One cycle of three minutes consists of the following flows of water:

30 seconds of flow through water at zero pressure (cold water)
1 minute at 100 PSI cold water
30 seconds of flow through water at zero pressure (hot water)
1 minute at 100 PSI hot water.

The three minute cycles continued without interruption for the full day equalling a total of 480 times per day.

To create a good comparison, the more conventional click-on style fittings were also subjected to the above testing.

Test Results

The testing period consisted of 30,000 cycles (approximately two months continuously).

The results reported that the conventional click-on style fittings survived less than 50 cycles.

Hoselink, on the other hand, was still working perfectly at the end of 30,000 cycles. During the testing period, approximately 60 hoses split, cracked or broke under the pressure, while Hoselink fittings never burst off the hose, nor did they break!
