Best hose I've ever bought
I've owned my Pope hose for about 3 years. It's the best hose I've ever bought and will by Pope again. The house is flexible and once the water pressure is in the hose, there is very little kink. It can happen but I am very pleased that kink is rare compared to some dreadful hoses. I recomend the soft Pope hoses, my fav.
I bought the Pope Brumby with brass fittings. Never leaked once and I water most days and never turn off the tap. Go for brass fittings and not the cheap plastic
hose attachments : slipping/fastening/clamping.
So your hose keeps blowing or slipping off the connector under pressure.How do you fix this without buying those $135 special hoses. It's so simple, you can fix this problem for about $4.
I live in an area where the water pressure is very high. Whenever a kink developed the hose would blow off at either the tap or hand piece.(you know what I mean). I now never have that problem and can leave the hose on all day and it will not blow. In fact I could tow a car with the hose and couplings
All I've used is the blue PVC pipe joining liquid (u...sed by plumber to fasten plastic pipes. For the less experienced here are the details. Making sure that the hose and connector are dry paint the inside of the hose with a thin layer of blue glue. Then paint the inside surface of the hose fitting with the same glue, Fit the hose into the hose fitting in the normal manner according to the manufacturers instruction. Don't delay between application of the glue and joining; as the glue goes off within a minute. Remember to fit your screw on bit first. And yes you cant take them off once set. The hose fittings I'm talking about are relatively cheap so once fitted that's it. I allowed a day's rest before using the hose. That was two years ago and it has not blown off since. Make sure you do the same for both ends of the hose and any other connectors or couplings in between. This same principle could be used for garden irrigation/ spray and drip systems.
