I live in a house with a very short driveway. I wanted a good quality large diameter hose that would reach around my car, without kinking every time I went from one side of the car to another while washing it. I also found the hose connections are very good. Various car wash tools screw on and stay on. The hose is labeled as having lead, so I just avoid drinking from it. Looked for a lead free version, but maybe they manufactured it with lead to get its good qualities. If you are looking for a large diameter hose then I highly recommend the NeverKink – UltraFlexible – Heavy Duty Garden Hose.
