Original Web Offer details & such: cart offer:  25', 50' & 75'. Price varies between $19.95-$39.95. Includes:  Bonus nozzle with every hose.  Sales tax: CT, NJ, NV, NY and PA. Guarantee:  30-day minus mysterious P&H.  Notes: Looks like S&H depends on size & quantity ordered. P&H varies and isn't publically published at the time of this review.

If you spent anytime in Southwest Florida during the holidays and saw any bit of Fox News on TV - which I swear it's a standard requirement down there - you probably saw 14 commercials for the Flex-Able hose. Seems to good to be true. I mean, I can't keep a conventional hose from leaking at the tap and that includes storing the hose indoors during the winter. But the more we read and the more we watched, the more we wondered if the hype is justified. Our results are below

What Is a Flexable Hose?

Did you ever have one of those travel cups? The ones that would compact into what looked like a coaster but then would pop up into a 6 oz drinking cup? Flex-Able hose is like that but a damned garden hose. They come in 3 different lengths:  25', 50' & 75'. They do this accordian thing with their "double-wall" construction. Looks quite ingenious if they really figured out how to keep the sides from pinching and linking and keeping the material from wearing out.

Is it Flexable or Flex-Able Hose

Well, that in itself is a good question. The logo and copy says, "Flex-Able," but the titles in Google searches claim "Flexable." We're guessing that it's technically with the hyphen but that most people will spell it without the hyphen. Who the Hell likes hyphens anyway?

Benefits, Claims & Features

According to flexablehose.com,   Flexable Hose (official affiliate link) claims the following features and benefits:

  • never kinks
  • compact & lightweight
  • easy and hassle free
  • available in 25', 50' & 75'
  • "double-wall" construction

It sounds better in Spanish



Does Flex-Able Hose Work? Review of Complaints, Frauds, Rip-Offs, Scams...

Order Process:  Grrrrrrrrr. We hate when an offer doesn't publish their P&H. We really, really hate it. Make sure you factor in that you'll probably pay another $10-$15 or so. Also, note you'll be using a 3rd-party site for the ordering:  unitycart.com so don't be too alarmed if you don't see the https on the product domain.

The majority of the complaints were about the order process.

Product Performance:  As much as we had found a mountain of complaints for the order process, we found little for product performance. We'll be honest, that was backwards to what we expected to find. 

Final Thoughts - What to Expect

We expect that the product will work for awhile but won't have the longest shelf-life. We've been known to be wrong, but it's hard to maintain any garden product with water and dirt on it that also needs to maintain an element of flexibility - especially a product that contracts and expands.

But if you can provide maintenance, keep it clean, you should be able to get a nice amount of use out if it. Just don't expect commercial-level use from this one.

Neutrogena SkinID [Review] - Free Skin ID Evaluation

With so many acne products out and about, on television, on the shelves, at the impulse counter, next to the Redbox and vending machines...It's enough to make one wonder as to why the competition is so fierce. Is it because no single product works well enough? Or is it because people have a hard time telling which product works for them. Maybe Neutrogena is onto something with the SkinID.
