With a very large garden - around an acre - the ability to get water round the garden is important. One problem is the hose kinking to the point of preventing the passage of water. Quite often, I find myself disconnecting a hose completely to 'unravel' it, even though I use high quality hose. I recently came across Everflow made by Copley. It is claimed that even when 'doubled over', water will still flow. Feedback seems to support that. However, some users identify a problem. The ability for water to flow is achieved by a 'spine' running internally through the hose. Some users have found difficulty in getting connectors etc to seal fully, and have had leaks. One user referred to the need for a special tool to remove the spine for a very short distance into the hose. Other users report no problems at all. I did the obvious thing: several days ago, I emailed Copley asking about these issues. Remarkably, I haven't received a word from them. (In another post recently, I mentioned having contacted Hyundai about one of their products, and got nothing back: I still haven't). I wondered whether any members use Everflow hose, and whether it performs as the makers claim. Is there an issue about removing the spine to get a good seal? Advice will be much appreciated.
