Hose Product Care Tips

1. To ensure a leak-free operation, be sure the washer is firmly in place inside the female coupling. If you notice wear or tear on the washer, it can be removed and replaced for a leak free seal every day. Filter Washers have a built-in screen that's designed to trap debris that may be in your hose before it accidentally may become lodged inside.

2. Keep your hose in the shade whenever possible, especially in hot summer months. Water left in your hose in direct sunlight has the potential to expand, potentially damaging the hose.

3. Did you know there is an easy way to determine the perfect length hose for your yard? Tools like the Ray Padula MyYard can easily determine the the exact length hose needed for your exact yard.

4. Never use your hose with hot water, unless the specific hose you are using is marked approved for hot water use.

5. Be sure to release water pressure when finished watering with a nozzle, especially before coiling your hose. Coiling your hose under pressure may cause tears, weak spots or punctures.

6. Remove your hose from the faucet, completely drain of water, and store indoors before and during freezing weather.

7. Be sure to store your garden hose in a hose reel, on a hose hanger, or in a hose pot. This helps keep your hose safely secure and out of the elements when not in use.

8. Hoses are designed for outdoor lawn and garden, general use only, unless otherwise noted for your specific hose. Only use hoses and watering accessories outdoors, with cold water, attached to an outdoor faucet.

9. Never leave your hose pressurized while not in use, or un-attended.

Garden Hose FAQs

Ray Padula products have an industry leading, excellent warranty. The warranty period varies by each hose, and can be found on product packaging or on the product page of this website. A proof of purchase is required for all warranty claims. For full warranty information, or to submit a warranty claim, please visit the warranty center.

Choosing the right length garden hose for your yard is vital to a successful season. The Ray Padula MyYard tool allows you to easily determine the perfect length hose needed for your exact yard.

Ray Padula garden hoses feature an innovative, extra-large Comfi-Grip swivel coupling. These couplings are designed to provide the easiest faucet and accessory attachment today. Whether your attaching your hose with wet or gloved hands, these couplings allow for a full handed grip for a leak free attachment without tools or pliers.

Many hoses even include a large comfi-grip swivel male coupling allowing for easy attachment of your hose to sprinklers, nozzles, and accessories without twisting or kinking.

A sprinkler hose can be used to water vegetables, narrow strips, or shrubs. These hoses are flat, with micro holes throughout the length of the hose. These holes provide a gentle stream of water that covers up to a 16 ft. (4.87 m.) distance. Place the hose with the white strips facing upward to sprinkle, or downward to soak water directly into the ground.

A soaker hose is a unique hose that features micro pores, designed to allow water to slowly ooze direct to the root zones. These hoses can be placed around the base of shrubs, vegetables, gardens and more. With a turn of the faucet, water is placed right where it's needed, with no waste.

Soaker hoses are designed for use with low water pressure only.

Ray Padula FlexLite premium lightweight hoses offer the same durability and performance of traditional garden hoses with half the weight.

MagicFlex PRO expanding hoses also offer a lightweight hose alternative that expand and contract with water pressure.

Unfortunately, not. Garden hoses are designed for outdoor use with cold water only, unless otherwise noted on your specific hose's packaging.

We recommend never to drink from a garden hose. Hoses are tools that are stored outdoors, that could come in contact with, and be exposed to potentially toxic items such as, fertilizers, mold, mildew, insects, fungus, animal waste, and other potentially harmful substances.

During the season, while your hose is in use, it's best to store in a covered hose reel to keep safely out of direct sunlight and the elements. If using a hose hanger, make sure your hose is stored in large, loose loops.

In the off season, garden hoses should be stored indoors, in a cool, dry place such as the garage or shed.

Be sure to remove garden hoses from the faucet, and completely drain of water before and during freezing weather.

An end cap can be used to seal garden hoses to prevent debris and critters from becoming lodged inside when not in use.

Sure! You can attach many hoses together if a longer hose is needed. Keep in mind, any hose over 125 ft. (38.1 m.) will require sufficient pressure and water flow for adequate performance. Pressure and flow rate greatly reduces with a longer hose length.
