Hose Pipes

Hose Pipes.  

Hose pipes come in many different price and quality categories.  We have summarised below the key features of each style of hose so that you can make an educated decision prior to buying your new garden hose pipe 


Tricoflex is made in France and is part of the Hozelock group.  This is a high quality hose that has traditionally been the best hose that we stock.  These hoses have been available since the 80's and are often seen in high use areas like nurseries and garden centres. 


Gardena garden hose pipes are very similar to the range offered by Claber and again we feel that there are probably better alternatives that are manufactured in the United Kingdom that are a similar or lower price.  



What Diameter Hose Pipe Should I buy

Hose pipe diameter depends on the length of the hose and the amount of water you want to come out of the end.  If you are filling water troughs then a low flow is probably ok however if you are trying to water plants by hand then you will probably want to have as much water as possible.  The key thing to remember is that the smaller the diameter of the pipe the faster the water will move and the greater the friction.  and the greater the loss of flow depending on the length of the pipe.  For a more detailed explanation please look at our pipe friction article on our blog which can be found by clicking here.  While this is water pipe the same applies to hose pipe although at a greater level so please do call 01189736905 for more help
