FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

Want a Kinky Garden Hose?


Recently I needed two new garden hoses.   I purchased one at Kmart and one at Ace Hardware.   I did not get light duty or medium duty.   I got the heavy duty version that claims not to kink.   I do not know what the advertising copy writers were smoking when they claimed these two hoses from two different manufactures and two different retailers would not kink.    They kinked from unrolling, they kinked when wound up the first time, they kinked on the first use and they kinked after sitting in the warm sun doing nothing.   Sounds pretty kinky to me!  The next time I used the 100' kinkless hose, I counted six (6) kinks each one sufficient to restrict the water flow to the extent that I got nothing, not even a trickle out of the hose until I un-kinked it.  
 
Bottom line, if there is a kinkless garden hose, I haven’t found it.   Therefore my conclusion is that if the Ace Hardware clerk tells you, buy the more expensive one, it doesn’t kink, she doesn’t have a clue on what she is talking about.   Save your money!
