I got a new hose!!

Post by DFW_Zoysia » Sun Oct 06, 2019 3:45 pm

Ok. Why and so excited about a new hose?

Take a look at the size of this thing compared to my normal garden hose!!!!!

I had a Parker 5/8" x 75' to begin with. Very good quality hose and fittings. Very pleased with it. I paid like $50 for it last year. It still looks and operates like new.

Then I just ordered the Underhill 3/4" and 1" hose (1" needs adapters) to compare. Both in 75 feet.

The nozzles I use I posted in a video in this thread. I use the yellow for flower beds and the blue one for grass or heavy watering.

looks high capacity but does it kink?

using it to hand-water plants or to hook onto a sprinkler?

if hand watering what is the best hose-end sprayer attachment?

ZERO kinking on this. It's way to thick to kink.

I use the special Underhill yellow and blue watering nozzles on it to hand water either flower beds or quickly soak the grass. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUg-f2KoB_8

When tried on a regular hose they were just OK put really weak. When tried on the new 1" hose it was a huge difference.

It's awesome!!!

So I just compared the same hose except in 3/4" to my 1". Noticeable difference. The 1" really wins if you are using a nozzle that can utilize the extra through-put. It's the one and only thing I own that is better than what @wardconnor has!! LOL

It might be helpful to add the specs (brand, size, etc) to the OP. :thumbup:

Underhill makes quality products. :thumbup: If you use the hose for different things you should buy quick disconnects. You'll wonder how you lived life without them.

That’s the hose my wife tells me not to worry about when she looks at my hose.
I may not have the best lawn and I may not have a clue what I’m doing but that’s pretty much all I have to say.

Nice hose. I definitely prefer 3/4 over 5/8

They make great stuff! I have the Turbo Shift Nozzle and couldn't hand water without it.

THIS IS PURE CRAP!

I wont stand for this. I need to know whatever you have so I can get the next best one.

Where did you get the hose? please link me

Did you measure the flow rate of both? It's been a while, but wouldn't they be the same if the supply line was smaller than the hose? edit: I guess the pressure behind it would make all the difference.

Sorry @wardconnor - my hose is pisser and your's isn't. In fact, you may be in the same category (hose-wise) as Brett Sucks. ;)

Here are the links:

The Hose (doin't waste your time or money on the 3/4". I did a comparison and the 1' handily beats it). I went with 75" but you can get it longer.

Here is the connector so it mounts to your house spiget on the house:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003T ... UTF8&psc=1

Here is the blue nozzle I use for heavy watering like lawn. This is a good one and make sure you click the option to get it with the 1" to 3/4" adapter and on/off valve:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00EE ... UTF8&psc=1

Here is the yellow nozzle I use for watering flowers - less aggressive watering than the blue but still puts to shame any other nozzle while not hurting my flowers:

BTW - your channel rocks and I love how great of a dad you are to your kids. Family is everything. #mowjob

What size water supply are you connecting to and at what pressure? I am running off a 3/4 inch supply to a full flow 3/4 inch hose bib connected to a 100ft 3/4 inch hose at 75 psi and put out around 12 gpm. I have tried high flow nozzles but don’t have the gpm flow to get a good pressure stream. Not sure how Increasing hose diameter without changing the supply size would make a material difference. Maybe if we have an irrigation engineer on the forum they could clarify. I am all for reducing hand watering time.

I have a standard hose spigot that is located right next to the main water line into the house. Last time I had a plumber out, he said I had high water pressure, though I don't remember the number.

We ran my 5/8" hose, the new 3/4" (which I just returned) and the new 1" (which I am keeping). With the fixed Underhill blue fan nozzle, there was a noticeable difference with the distance, size of fan spray, and amount of water being put out.

Wife thought I was nuts but then she watched and even she admitted there was a difference. Length of hose is 75'.

I can't get technical and talk like an engineer. I can only say what we both witnessed in our test.
