Revolutionary Kink Resistance

The unique characteristics of the polyurethane material, combined with the innovative woven pattern of the high-tensile reinforcement threads, typically cause the ELEY hose to flip out of a loop rather than collapse down into a kink. Even if it is kinked, ELEY polyurethane hose has "zero kink memory", which means it WILL NOT keep kinking in the same place over and over.

Overview Video - ELEY Polyurethane Garden Hose

This short video gives you a quick, but detailed look at the most revolutionary and durable garden hose on the market.

How to Determine What Length of Hose You Need

Since the distance of an average person's step is approximately 2 1/2 feet, a quick and simple method for calculating how much hose you need is to step off and count the number of paces from your faucet to the furthest distance you want the hose to reach. Then multiply the total paces/steps by 2.5 per step.

FOR EXAMPLE, 38 paces x 2.5 feet = 95 feet. Therefore, a 100-foot hose would be an ideal fit for that particular location. Be sure to follow these guidelines:

1. Walk at a normal pace—no giant steps.

2. Walk the same path the hose will need to lay to get to the furthest point. No shortcuts.

How to Create a Custom-Made ELEY Polyurethane Garden Hose

ELEY does not make custom-made polyurethane garden hoses. However, we have provided a means for you to make your own custom-length or custom-fitted (male-to-male or female-to-female) garden hoses. ELEY has developed a revolutionary hose fitting repair tool that will allow you to create your own custom-designed garden hose (complete with factory-grade ELEY fittings) from one of our standard-length polyurethane garden hose assemblies. Visit our Garden Hose Fitting Repair Tool page for full details and a demonstration video.

Frequently Asked Questions - Polyurethane Garden Hose

Use the search field below to quickly narrow your search based on keywords in your query.

Where is ELEY garden hose made?

ELEY ultra-durable garden hose is manufactured in our Reno, Nevada facility. The finished product is then shipped to fulfillment warehouses in Salt Lake City, UT, and Knoxville, TN.  

Does the warranty cover damage from pets?

No, it does not. Although we show a puppy chewing on the hose to demonstrate the durability of our polyurethane hose's cover (which the hose survived without blemish), damage from pet chewing on the hose is specifically excluded from our warranty. See #9 in our warranty policy's exclusions.

Can I pick up my ELEY garden hose from one of your facilities?

No. Neither our manufacturing facility in Reno, NV nor our warehouses in Utah or Tennessee are set up for retail or pick-up operations.

What makes ELEY garden hose drinking-water-safe?

ELEY garden hose is made from UV-stabilized FDA and NSF grade polyurethane material. Combine that with our crush-proof, lead-free machined brass fittings, and ELEY hoses are 100% drinking-water-safe. Even the rubber gaskets are made from drinking-water safe material. For more detailed information, see What You Need to Know About Drinking Water Safe Garden Hose.

What makes the ELEY garden hose kink-resistant?

ELEY polyurethane garden hose is the most kink-resistant available. Find out why our innovative hose sets the bar in kink-resistance by reading What Makes A Garden Hose Kink-Resistant?

Is ELEY garden hose UV resistant? 

Yes, they are UV-resistant.  We add a UV stabilizer to the outside layer (cover) of the hose.  This will resist UV decay, but nothing can eliminate it.  You may see some yellowing of the cover over the years.

What sizes (inside diameter) of ELEY garden hoses are available?

Currently, ELEY only produces our polyurethane garden hose with a 5/8-inch inside dimension (ID). We do not offer any other sizes, including 1/2-inch, 3/4-inch, or anything larger, nor do we have any plans to expand into these other sizes any time soon. The best method to stay informed about when we launch new products, including a 3/4-inch ID polyurethane garden hose, is to join our Email Notification list.

What lengths of ELEY garden hose are available?

ELEY 5/8-inch Polyurethane Hose is offered in standard lengths of 6-1/2 feet, 12-feet, and then in 25-foot increments from 25 feet up to 200 feet. We do not offer any lengths above 200 feet. You can also make your own custom-cut length of hose by purchasing one of our standard lengths and modifying it by using our Hose Repair Took Kit.  

Does ELEY garden hose come in different colors?

ELEY polyurethane garden hose is only available in our neutral grey color. This 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.

What type of fittings can be used with the garden hose?

Eley garden hoses are made of 100% drinking-water-safe, lead-free brass, machined with the standard 3/4-inch Garden Hose Threads (GHT), which is the standard thread used throughout the USA and Canada for garden hoses. Even though the inside diameter of any brand of garden hose might be 1/2, 5/8, or 3/4-inch, the fitting on the ends will always be 3/4-inch GHT.

No Aluminum Fittings! Avoid attaching any watering tool with aluminum fittings to the ELEY garden hose due to galvanic corrosion. They will likely weld or fuse together over time and you may not be able to separate them. We recommend brass, nickel-plated, or stainless-steel fittings. Lead-free brass delivers the best results.

GHT is not NPT! Please note that GHT is not compatible with NPT (National Pipe Thread), which is typically found on most steel and brass pipe fittings. So, remember, 3/4-inch GHT is not the same as 3/4-inch NPT.

Can I get the same fitting on both ends? Yes, however, it will require purchasing one of our standard lengths of hose, our fitting repair tool, and the male or female fitting you want on both ends.  The entire process is explained on our Garden Hose Fitting Repair Tool Kit page. 

How much pressure and flow does the garden hose deliver?

We cannot provide accurate figures regarding the flow rate (GPM) and pressure (PSI) that you'll experience at the end of your garden water hose as several factors contribute to this calculation. These include the length of hose, size of plumbing feeding your faucet, incoming pressure of your city of well supply, as well as the inside diameter of your garden water hose and watering tools. However, the inside diameter of ELEY 5/8-inch polyurethane hose is0.625-inch (16 mm).

How flexible is the garden hose and what is the bend radius?

Unlike PVC and vinyl hoses, which can stiffen and become hard to handle in cold temperatures, ELEY polyurethane hose remains flexible down to -40°F & -40°C. The bend radius of our 5/8-inch polyurethane hose is 3-1/2 inches.  Yet, despite this flexibility, ELEY polyurethane hoses are extremely kink-resistant due to the polyurethane material's unique characteristics and the type of reinforcements we use.  Read our article, "What Makes a Garden Hose Kink Resistant?"

Does the length of hose reduce how much water I can get out of the hose?

Yes, longer lengths of hose will reduce the amount of water delivered; however, you may not notice. Most residential systems will deliver 40 to 80 pounds-per-square-inch (PSI) pressure and 6 to 12 gallons-per-minute (GPM) to the faucet. Each foot of 5/8 inch water hose added to your faucet will reduce the volume by 0.01 GPM*. This will increase the amount of time to fill a bucket or pool.

  • 50 feet of 5/8-inch hose = 0.5 GPM less volume.
  • 100 feet of 5/8-inch hose = 1 GPM less volume.
  • 200 feet of 5/8-inch hose = 2 GPM less volume.

A sprinkler or other watering tool attached to the end of the hose will affect the volume (GPM) more than the length of hose. A normal impulse sprinkler that delivers 3 GPM at the end of a 10-foot hose will continue to deliver 3 GPM at the end of a 200-foot hose. However, for every foot of 5/8-inch hose between the faucet and sprinkler, the pressure will be reduced by 0.1 PSI. This will reduce how far the sprinkler can spray.

  • 50 feet of 5/8-inch hose = 5 PSI less pressure.
  • 100 feet of 5/8-inch hose = 10 PSI less pressure.
  • 200 feet of 5/8-inch hose = 20 PSI less pressure.

*ELEY hose laid out straight on level ground with no tool on the outlet.

Can the hose be coiled onto a hose hanger, storage pot or onto the ground?

Yes.  Although the characteristics of the ELEY polyurethane water hose material is different than all other types of hoses, it can manually coiled into a circle on the ground, or into a hose storage pot, or looped onto a wall-mounted hose hanger or rack.  The key is to make sure the hose is laid out straight, with no loops in it prior to pulling it in.

Can ELEY hoses be used for continuous pressure applications?

ELEY polyurethane garden hose is not recommended for any application that requires the hose to remain under constant pressure. There are hoses that are rated for continuous pressure, like washing machine hookup hoses, and must pass rigorous tests to get that rating. It is also recommended that such continuous-pressure hoses be replaced every two years.

Will a hose washer from a local retail store work in the female fitting of an ELEY hose?

No. A regular water hose washer from the hardware store will not work for our custom fitting. The diameter is too small for our fitting and will become off-center enough to leak. The best long-term and leak-free seal can be achieved by using the ELEY O-ring style washer that is sold as a 12-Pack, Item #1113.

Is it safe to put heat tape on this hose? 

Yes, as long as the temperature of the tape does not exceed 150° F (65° C), it should be fine. 

Does ELEY hose work with walking/traveling tractor-type sprinklers?

Yes, it does work with all types of traveling sprinklers, including National Walking, Orbit, Nelson, Underhill, and Kees brand tractor sprinklers. 

Is this hose suitable for water transfer pump intake (vacuum), or will it collapse?

Sorry, it is not designed for such applications.  It will collapse.

Is the hose latex-free?

Yes.
