Drinking Water Safe Garden Hose
Have complete peace of mind while watering your vegetable garden or filling your pet’s water dish or drinking straight from the hose on those hot summer days. All components and materials used to produce the ELEY FDA-grade polyurethane hoses are 100% lead-free and drinking-water-safe. Polyurethane is also inherently resistant to mold and mildew growth, making it ideally suited for damp environments or conditions that foster undesirable fungi.
The revolutionary ELEY lead-free brass fittings are lead-free through and through, unlike many fittings that only have a lead-free coating or plating to protect you from the toxic metal underneath. Also, unlike aluminum fittings, ELEY brass fittings will never weld (galvanically corrode) themselves to your faucet or brass watering tools.
Polyurethane Hose Overview Video
Watch this short 2-minute video for a quick overview of the revolutionary features and benefits of the Eley polyurethane garden hose.
Not all garden hoses are created equal. The extreme-duty characteristics of our polyurethane tube and cover combined with our revolutionary lead-free and crush-proof brass fittings make Eley the best garden hose available for both homeowners and commercial users alike. The innovative full-flow design of our fittings also delivers the maximum water flow your system will deliver. So, whether your daily garden hose use involves crushed rock driveways, heavy vehicle traffic, jagged edge landscape stones or rose bush thorns, the rugged durability of the ELEY polyurethane garden hose will perform well beyond your expectations.
Flexible, Lightweight, Kink-Resistant and Non-Marking
Need to use your garden hose in cold weather? No problem. ELEY polyurethane garden hose delivers cold-weather flexibility even down to -40°F. Nobody likes it when a garden hose kinks. The reinforcement threads built into our garden hoses are designed to deliver amazing kink-resistance. However, if you do want to kink it manually, you can do so, knowing that it has zero kink memory (won't kink in the same place over and over). Polyurethane material is also amazingly lightweight, up to 2 times lighter, and yet 3 times stronger than most leading garden hoses. Actual weights can be found in the specifications table below. The attractive neutral grey color was specially selected because it not only looks great on the Spartan bronze ELEY hose reels, but it also blends in well with virtually any landscape or building color. The cover is also 100% non-marking, meaning you don’t have to worry about it leaving a trail across clean surfaces.
How to Determine What Length of Hose You Need
Since the distance of an average person's step (walking at a normal pace) is approximately 2-1/2 feet, a quick and simple method for calculating how much hose you need is to step off (count paces) from your faucet to the furthest distance you want the hose to reach and then multiply the total by 2.5 per step. This should give you a reasonable estimate of the length of hose you should purchase. For example, 38 paces x 2.5 feet = 95 feet. Therefore, a 100-foot length of hose would be an ideal fit for that particular location. Be sure to do the following:
1. Walk at a normal pace. No large steps.
2. Walk the same path the hose will need to lay to get to the furthest point. No shortcuts.
