 New garden hose
Topic Originator: Parboiled  
Date:   Wed 3 Aug 16:34

Old one sprang a leak last night, unrepairable, new one just arrived from Amazon.

I’ll just leave in the box the now, we have a yellow warning of heavy overnight rain 2100 - 0600.

The parched south of England will be green with envy because much of their grass isn’t!

I do recall someone being appointed Minister for Drought back in the day. He was hardly settled in when the heavens opened and he was minister for floods.

Worth a try, write your local MP....

I’ve been more fortunate than you, the last one served me well for quite a few years. I tend to get impatient when it get gets stuck round the corner of walls etc and yank it too hard. I think that damaged it.
New one seems more robust anyway so here’s hoping.

And the moral of that story is not to yank your expanding hose so hard!! 👀 Ooeeerrrr!

The only problem I’ve found with the expandable hose is that once you’re finished watering and turn off the tap, you’re left with an overly erect (for want of a better word) hose and you end up having to use more water just to be able to store your hose.
