PROTECT IT FROM SHARP OBJECTS

This is most often the reason for garden pipe damage. Garden hoses are soft PVC, and they tend to get punctures from a sharp object. While working around in the garden or home take care to avoid lethal contact with gardening implements.

 

KEEP IT AWAY FROM SUNLIGHT

UV rays in the sunlight affect the garden pipes the most. UV rays weaken the polymer and reduce the working life of the garden pipe. It is therefore imperative to protect the hose from sunlight.

After you have finished watering your plants, don’t leave the garden hose lying in the sun. Recoil it and put it away from sunlight.

You will get an extended life of your garden hose with this simple task.

A hose hanger or hose reel is always a prudent investment. See the multiple benefits of using a garden hose hanger

  1. Proper storage of garden hose
  2. Protection from vehicular movement and unnecessary damage
  3. Protection from sharp objects.
  4. Protection from exposure to sunlight.
  5. Protection from kinks and thus,
  6. “Ready to use” status of the garden pipe.
  7. Get a clean and lean look of your garden.

Do remember to install the hose hanger in a shaded area.

 

PROTECTION FROM EXTREME COLD IS HELPFUL

A regular quality garden hose gets damaged in winters. It will develop cracks and will eventually break. So you can’t really do much about it.

Garud Garden Pipe is least affected by cold, but it does get changed. You can easily add one year of life to your Garud Garden Hose if you protect it from unnecessary exposure to sunlight and cold.
