KONA 50’ Expandable Garden Hose Review

Kona garden hose

There are various joys of being a homeowner, but the tough work starts when you have to look at maintaining your garden, for which watering the plants and grass from time to time is a necessity.

A regular garden hose can be used too, but they crack and wear out in no time

Instead of using traditional hoses, expandable hoses like the Kona Expandable Garden Hose could be a better option.

In today’s review, we are going to look at the Kona 50’ Expandable Garden Hose. We will cover the features of the expandable garden hose and also what others are saying about the product.

The hose shrinks when not being used, and expands 2-3 times its length when filled with water, courtesy of water pressure; hence the name Expandable Garden Hose.

Expandable garden hoses are gaining substance in the current market because they are easy to use, provide longevity to the user in terms of usage, are very easy to fold and store without the issue of tinkering up, and are portable.

There are plenty of varieties of garden hose available in the market – traditional hoses, sprinkler hoses, soaker hoses, flat hoses etc. are some types of water hoses.

Towards the end, we will give you our recommendation on whether the Kona Expandable hose is worth your time and money, or not.

About the Product

The Kona garden hose stretches up to 50 feet, and features a triple latex natural core for durability, and ensures that the garden hose is not damaged when it is dragged on rocky stones and hard surfaces while being used outdoors, which is always the case.  It also sports a brass valve with a shut-off valve, and a weight of 2.5 pounds.

The hose is very sturdy as it is made from polyester and has brass fittings, which takes care of leakage.
Another fantastic thing about the heavy-duty hose is that it comes with a 9-way sprayer that has 9 different settings for spray, and an adjustable flow.

The best part about the hose is, that is does not kink-up when not being used, and can be easily untangled when it is to be used again and when the hose is not being used, it contracts and is easy to carry around and store. It is deemed to be lightweight by Kona and can be easily carried around, without much hassle.

Notable features of the Kona Extendable Garden Hose include:

  • Made from high quality and rugged new-age materials
  • Has a solid brass connector and a shut-off valve too
  • Hose can withstand a pressure of 58 PSI
  • Hose starts at 17 feet in length and stretches out to a total length of 50 feet
  • Is one of the lightest garden-hose in the market

This garden hose can expand up to 6 bars (87 PSI) and will contract on its own when not being used.  The hose can be used outdoors where there are sharp rocks and dust, and will not rupture due to its strong construction.

Kona also gives a 12-month warranty on the expandable hose in case it breaks or ruptures, and the replacement is easy without any complications.

What Others Say

We were surprised pleasantly by how many positive reviews this hose received when looking at what people had to say.

Customers liked that the hose was lightweight, unlike other hoses in the market which had to be carried around and were difficult to manage. The customer also added that the hose was well built, and is doing what it was intended to do with perfection.

The customer reviews go on to say that the Kona hose is very durable, even after a year of use and is being extremely sturdy in use.  People commented that they were happy with the free spray that comes with the hose, and it has a 9-way setting which helps them use the hose’s spray in 9 different ways.

Some people have also commented that this was the best expandable they have used, and were not as keen to buy any other hose in the future, and would highly recommend using the Kona product.
People added to their reviews by saying that the hose expands and contracts as described and seemed to be decent in its construction with brass ends.

Almost all the reviews say that the hose comes in a nice box, is well packaged and protected by Kona – and is one of the best expandable they have used.

In the reviews, customers state that the hose is a perfect example of how something so simple can make their lives so much easier and better. Right from the spray settings, to the adjustable pressure and the easy squeeze handle and the rubber grip which provides good control over the hose, the customers are out to praise everything about the hose and how so.

People are also happy with the 12 month warranty that comes along with the Kone extendable hose, and how they have never been happy with their past experience with a hose, but now they have found the perfect match.

But, not all reviews, as with every product in the world, are positive.  A few negative comments from customers state that the hose had to be replaced towards the start, because of a few defects, and write that it was an issue getting the hose replaced and getting a new one.

Some comments also say that the brass fitting of the hose comes lose and the water leaks due to that. The customers say that they have tried to fix the issue, and have been successful but think that the issue should not arise with such high-quality hose in the first place.  A few people also give negative comments about the high price, but then the quality of the product is such that price has to be a little high.

Final Thoughts

It is safe to say that there are plenty of garden hoses available in the market, but they are not all of the same quality.  The Kona Expandable Garden Hose is an example of what you get with perfect design and high quality materials.

We highly recommend buying Kona’s Expandable Garden Hose because of its high utility, sturdy design, usage of high quality materials to ensure that the hose does not go through any wear/tear when being used outdoors, and brass fittings which ensure that there is no leakage of any sorts.

Looking at your utility, and the frequency at which you use the garden hose could sometimes give you no reason to buy one, sometimes maybe because you already have a garden hose, or you do not have a garden.

However, every home with an outdoor faucet has good use for an extendable garden hose, because it is much easier to use, lightweight and neater to tuck away than the traditional garden hoses that we use.

We like this hose a lot because it fills and empties really fast and can be stored wherever you want, without a worry of abrasions or tear.

The lightweight nature of this hose makes it easy to store and easier to carry around. It also comes with a small pouch which can be used to store or carry it around, whenever the need arises.
The pouch can easily be fit in the backseat, or storage space of your car and be carried around for a picnic or any other need.

The hose also gives you a steady grip, with rubber coating and has a secure connection due to its brass fittings, helping to prevent any leaks when you are using it. The brass fittings are better than plastic connectors and will not strip out or crack.

For homeowners who are looking for a perfect fit to their cause of carrying a lightweight hose around with them, using it with full efficiency, getting full quality out of the product, and using a product that is long-lasting, we highly recommend the Kona Expandable Garden Hose.

As already stated, the materials used in the hose compliment the technical qualities which it possesses and makes the expandable garden hose a hit amongst the customers due to its never-ending positive points. Most reviews for the hose have been positive, and many consumers have gifted the hose to their family members and relatives too, in lieu of the many outstanding qualities that the expandable hose possesses.

Powering your garden with this expandable hose will increase the look and feel of your garden and make the process of watering your garden very easy for you.

Considering all of the above qualities of the Kona Expandable Garden Hose, we highly recommend the product and can be sure that it is better than any traditional garden hose that you have ever used.
