StyYLLs Food Grade Silicone Garden Hose has been added to our catalog because we want to give a non-chemical leaching garden hose option to everyone looking to be better on the environment and on the gardens and potentially pets because we know a lot of us still fill our pets outside water bowls with regular garden hoses.
Regular garden hoses leach bad chemicals into the water they spray, especially if the water has been sitting in the hose for days and being heated or frozen by the elements.
This reinforced food grade silicone hose will not fail under standard household water pressures and will never permanently kink making it very easy to use. It also does not get as stiff as other types of hoses when exposed to cold temperatures. (We also have a heated silicone garden hose option as well for areas that see regular freezing temperatures.)
You will never have the taste of plastic in your garden hose water again.
The brass fitting are also all NSF certified to be lead-free.
What are silicone garden hoses?Silicone garden hoses are hoses made from silicone material that are specifically designed for use in gardens. They are typically lightweight, flexible, and resistant to kinking. Silicone hoses are often used for watering plants, gardening tasks, and other outdoor applications.
Are silicone garden hoses safe for drinking water?Yes, silicone garden hoses are generally considered safe for drinking water. They are made from food-grade silicone, which is non-toxic and does not leach harmful chemicals into the water. However, it's always recommended to check the manufacturer's specifications to ensure the hose is explicitly labeled as safe for drinking water.
How durable are silicone garden hoses?Silicone garden hoses are known for their durability. They are resistant to punctures, tears, and weathering, making them long-lasting and suitable for outdoor use. However, the durability may vary between different brands and models, so it's advisable to choose a reputable manufacturer and check for user reviews.
Can silicone garden hoses withstand extreme temperatures?Yes, silicone garden hoses are designed to withstand a wide range of temperatures. They can typically handle both hot and cold water without becoming damaged or degrading. Silicone hoses are known for their excellent heat resistance, making them suitable for use in extreme weather conditions.
Are silicone garden hoses kink-free?While silicone garden hoses are generally more resistant to kinking than traditional hoses, they may still kink to some extent. The flexibility and kink-resistance of a silicone hose can vary depending on its design and construction. Look for hoses that are specifically marketed as kink-resistant or reinforced for improved performance.
Do silicone garden hoses resist UV rays?Yes, silicone garden hoses are typically UV-resistant. The silicone material used in their construction can withstand prolonged exposure to sunlight without degrading or becoming brittle. However, it's still recommended to store the hose in a shaded area or use hose covers to provide additional protection against UV rays.
Are silicone garden hoses flexible?Yes, silicone garden hoses are known for their flexibility. They are usually more pliable than traditional rubber or PVC hoses, allowing for easier maneuverability around the garden. The flexibility of silicone hoses makes them less likely to tangle or kink during use.
How do I clean a silicone garden hose?To clean a silicone garden hose, you can rinse it with clean water and wipe it down with a mild detergent if needed. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that can damage the hose. It's also important to ensure the hose is fully dry before storing it to prevent mold or mildew growth.
Are silicone garden hoses lightweight?Yes, silicone garden hoses are generally lightweight compared to traditional hoses. The lightweight nature of silicone makes them easier to handle and maneuver, reducing fatigue during use. However, the specific weight can vary depending on the length and thickness of the hose.
Can I use silicone garden hoses for watering plants?Yes, silicone garden hoses are commonly used for watering plants. They provide a gentle and even flow of water, allowing for efficient watering of garden beds, flower pots, and other plantings. The flexibility and lightweight nature of silicone hoses make them convenient for gardening tasks.
Are silicone garden hoses suitable for high-pressure applications?Silicone garden hoses are generally not designed for high pressure, but these food/drinking water grade silicone garden hoses are reinforced to be used with all standard household water pressures in the USA.
