I've seen people drinking directly from a hose, so It is great to have a hose that is lead free and safe for drinking. The large brass fittings are easy to work with when attaching the hose. The one drawback is that it is kink resistant and not kink free. It will definitely kink if you are not very careful.Review by Mark (on 12/16/13)
I'm a hand waterer. The claim that the hose is kink-free is incorrect and frustrating. After only one year of use I've sprouted a show-stopping leak. The excellent connectors and rating don't make up for the frustration of the various ways the hose finds to kink up on itself even with very calculated behavior on the part of the waterer. Looking for something else.Review by Billy (on 4/27/13)
This is a good hose but it is definitely not kink free. I use it everyday and so far so good.Review by Kim (on 6/18/12)
