Have to let you know that the Gardenrite Premium hose has lasted longer than the more expensive hoses we purchased. The most expensive hose we bought was a well known brand made in Italy and only lasted 18 months (had a warranty for 15 years) in the weather conditions we have here in Pingelly. We have had yours for over 3 years now and it is still going strong. Best hose ever. Rob & Kate Pingelly Western Australia.
