There are various different types of garden hoses and garden tools that you can choose from. And there are several types of hoses which actually make up a variety of different tools. The Bionic Stainless Steel Hose, for example, is made of Stainless Steel, ensuring it is the safest hose you will ever purchase. It is corrosion free, ultra light, rust proof, kink resistant and is also durable enough to withstand extreme weather conditions. Busy yourself with more important things such as spending more time outdoors and enjoying the great outdoors not only with your garden hose but with all the other tools that make up your garden. A Bionic Stainless Steel Hose may be your best choice.

Let us first look at the different types of fittings which makes up your metal garden hose. There are four main types of fittings that are available on the market today. They are: Tee, Flat, T-bar and Kink. Among these, the Tee is considered to be the easiest tool in terms of maintenance, but there are still some minor issues with regards to leaks. This makes the Flat type, the most popular amongst gardeners.

As for the other types of metal garden hoses, we have the following. Flat and Kink fittings are the most commonly used and are the most preferred among users. With the flat type, the hose runs parallel to the garden and at an angle towards the garden, whereas the Kink type extends from a straight line. All other hoses, whether they are Tee or Flat or Kink, run in a spiral pattern and the spiral pattern allows the water to flow in a clean direction. You can also get external garden hoses such as those that can support heavy weight loads, for instance 50 kilograms.

The rubber hose fittings are one of the most efficient and common. They are available in both round and rectangular shapes, and they are mostly used in residential and commercial buildings. The most commonly used form of the metal garden hose is the round one. Round hoses generally have a diameter of around twenty three centimeter, and their outside diameter may vary from fifteen to twenty five centimeters. Most people prefer the ones with a diameter of twenty five centimeters so that they do not get tangled and they can be easily cleaned.

Other metals like the nickel-plated steel, the galvanized steel, and the aluminum ones are less commonly used than the traditional rubber hose. These metal garden hoses have a certain amount of flexibility and they are extremely strong and durable when compared to the metal ones. However, despite their strength, they are more prone to rusting. As for the wooden garden hoses, they are of great quality and are extensively used in gardens. They are also known to last for a long time, even up to two decades, and they are resistant to corrosion and are long lasting.
