  1. My garden is 60 feet away. The hose that “expands up to 100 feet” didn’t even make it. My hose is now useless to me. Under what circumstance does it reach 100 feet?! It. Simply. Doesn’t. False advertising.

  2. Flexable Hose Xtreme REVIEW - Copper Fit Rapid Relief Wrap, Miracle Mist, Arctic Hat, Woof Glider, ThermaComfort Calming Wrap - Latest REVIEWS says:

    […] Flexable Hose Xtreme is “distributed” by As Seen On TV Company Tristar Products INC – the same company that makes the earlier model – Flexable Hose. […]

  3. I have bought the original flex hoses they stunk, lasted no time, last year I bought the Tough Grade Flexable hose, suppose to be so much stronger, yeah right, one blew out on me a few days ago and the other is getting ready to blow, it has several places in the “Thicker Dacron Armor Exterior Fabric” that is suppose to be so great. In my opinion, nothing but a hoax!!!

  4. i have just read your comments.and I am just the opposite of you they are useless I have had four at varying lengths yes theyexpand allright but mine literally exploded,they just swelled up like a balloon then they all burst in my opinion they are useless and a waste of time and money.i wish I could say different but I cant and my friend has had the same experience. he also said useless.

  5. I agree with all the above posts – this hose SUCKS big time!! I bought the first one, it ruptured, figured that, oh, well, maybe I wasn’t using it correctly (couldn’t figure out how I WASN’T using it correctly, I emptied all the water out of the stupid thing) – so I bought the second one to replace the first. THAT ruptured. Brought it back and got ANOTHER one and THAT ruptured!!! I am SOOO done with this stupid flexable hose – do NOT waste your money. It isn’t worth the time and effort to buy, return, buy and be disappointed!!!!

    • I bought the pocket hose last summer. Used it a few times, but then it ruptured in the middle. Bought another. Flex Able Hose. Used it a few times last year, and then some this year. Today it ruptured right at the faucet. I won’t buy another one, although I liked the concept of it. I always drained the hose when I finished with it. Don’t know why it ruptured.

  6. Flex-Able Hose worked for a short time, then a whole burst in it. Hoping to get refund for this poor quality item, that doesn’t live up to it’s company standards.

  7. Received a 25′ pocket hose “as seen on TV” as gift from a friend. Fantastic–does exactly what it says in the infomercials. Unfortunately, on my second use, the hose sprang leaks in multiple places along its length, including next to the handle—spraying me all over with water. I disconnected it from the spigot and deposited it in the garbage can. What a Pity……

  8. The idea sounded great on their infomercial, So I got one but it broke after a couple of months and started to leak. I couldn’t return it since it was after return period . I thought it was just that one and gave it a second try and bought a second one, but same thing happened two months after.

  9. I bought a green 75′ flexable hose extreme from Sam’s Club about 4 months ago and it has 2 leaks, one about 3′ from the inlet end and one in the middle. I don’t have the receipt and wondered if it can be patched!

  10. Bought 3 different manufactures hoses in different lenghts. All broke withing 2 weeks. Neat idea but engineering problem with interior rubber which builds water pressure it can not handle.
    Stay away from them.

  11. I received a 100 foot Flex-Able hose for Father’s Day. I used this hose 4 (four) times, and guess what? Yep, all of a sudden water started gushing out of the center of the 100 foot length. I looked all over the box and the Flex-Able.com website for a warranty. Well, I had not even used it in the first 60 days that I had it. Now I have to pay shipping to send the piece of junk back, and I need the receipt that I dont have? Are they kidding?
    My learning is…dont waste your money. This is cheap Chinese made garbage, made with crappy raw materials!


  13. I agree – I bought probably 5-6 hoses for my friend. She loved them , she has neck and shoulder issues and loved watering her plants and yard. But the hose would not last a full season. She unhooked the hose and put it in the garage after use. Everytime the hose would blow up on her. Took back and received another one (at no cost) And now the one that was exchanged for the other one is getting ready to burst or blow up. someone needs to do a class action lawsuit against the company. THE HOSE SUCKS AND IT SAYS IT IS 3X STRONGER!!!!!!

  14. what a piece of crap…5th hose..none lasted 1 year…just picked up 2 more and lasted 1 day. they either burst in the hose or the plastic valve splits ..taking them back to Boscov’s and hope to get my money back.

  15. I purchased the 50′ used it once & it burst. what a rip off !! I had threw out the box thinking it was a good product what a mistake.

  16. I brought 2 flex hoses they both broke and they cost $19.99 a piece i will never buy them again.

  17. Bought one, it worked well. No complaints, so I bought three more. Thought I had it made.
    However; after one year one started leaking, seemingly a bad connection between the inner hose and the coupling. Fixed that.
    Now they all leak, same problem and it repeats itself over and over again.
    After each and every use I completely drained the hoses, but to no avail. The inner tube will not last, no matter what.
    Final solution: trashcan. Period.

  18. I bought a 100 ft. hose at Walmart in May 2015. After a few uses, it busted in two spots. Unbelievable! I’m returning it today. Don’t waste your money!!

  19. thought this was a good buy but turns out its a fail. Ive bought two in three weeks. Both blew holes in them by simply just turning on the water. Bad product and just another clever gimick at making a quick buck at the poor consumers dollar. Shame on them. Dont waste your money on this item. Your paying lots of money for a product that shrinks in size and your wallet.

  20. My experience was the same as everyone listed in this forum. I bought the Xhose Pro 100ft with the brass fittings. Mine burst after 4 uses and the spring load mechanism on the nozzle rusted due to poor plating. Great idea, bad execution.

  21. I’m really happy I found this site. With Spring here, I was actually going to try them again, even thought I have already purchased 4 of the 50′ variety. All 4 lasted about 1 month before bursting somewhere in the middle, making them useless. After the first failure, I made sure that I kept reasonable water pressure going and that I didn’t stretch them. It doesn’t matter- they are weak and designed to fail. No money back. Buy extender hoses to your big hose and save your money.

  22. I had Flex hose 2 weeks I hooked it up. Went to turn the nozel on it blew up in my face it was very Loud its been 2 hours I still cant hear out my left ear.


    I received my order and decided to exchange for a longer hose (and therefore spending more money at the company). Customer service told me that they don’t allow exchanges, I got what I ordered and there was nothing they could do. I explained that I am attempting to spend more money at the company, was told if I wanted I could place another order with them. I demanded to speak w/a manager, was told there is no reason, manager will tell me the same thing! I was eventually able to speak with a Manager, she emailed me a label to return the product and again I was told they don’t do exchanges, I would have to return the product and place another order. I returned the product the end of August. Surprise, surprise my credit card was never credited for the return. After numerous frustrating phone conversations with “customer service” I disputed the charge with my credit card company.

  24. DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY! Burst open the third time I used it and company didn’t even have the coutesy to answer my complaint.

  25. The FlexAble Hose is not durable and will spontaneously burst or pop the inner tubing so
    it becomes totally useless and has to be discarded. I had bought 3 of the 75 ft. FlexAble hoses
    and all three have busted within a year of purchase. It is not as fantastic as it is touted to be and will eventually cost a lot more than a regular garden hose since it has to be replaced every few months!
    Not worth buying another FlexAble hose!

  26. I bought three flex hoses last year and they performed rather well. I hooked them up this year and evey one of them disintergrated. Spring leaks and were totally useless. The old American thing just buy a new one. These were purchased through WalMart. Need I say anything more. DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY.
    A total rip off

  27. Had bought 2 hoses prior to my 3er one, both hoses bursted after 3 months of purchase , took good care of them could not understand why the exploded, anyway I bought a 3rd hose after 2 uses (less than 3 days) it also exploded, they are a real piece of crap , Will take it back to WALMART for my money to be refunded, made in CHINA great product jajajaja, If it would said MADE IN AMERICA it would be a great product .

  28. Great concept…horrible execution of it. We purchased at Sam’s. The 2nd time we used the hose it split on the inside and started leaking. My husband called the company and they said, “it’s not our problem!”
    I will never purchase from this company again!!!

  29. Do not but this garbage. I bought 2 50 foot hoses and they
    split in less than 8 months. Worst product that I have ever bought. Totally a major ripoff. Do not waste your money.

  30. What a mess! I brought this item 3 months ago and it just broke. The pressure broke a hole in the tube. I called to ask them what can I do for a replacement but since it’s not 90 days after the purchase they can’t do anything about it. I thought they guarantee their product and wouldn’t you like to keep your customers happy you would do stuff. I guess not! Complete waste of time and money. Don’t but this product!

  31. I wish I had seen this site before buying my 50 ft flexhose. I could have saved myself some money. I needed a dependable hose to run from outside faucet to my porch. I live in a camper and plumbing has gone crazy and I needed to be able to fill Gal jugs on a daily basis. I hooked it up on Tue and on Fri I noticed it was limp when it should have been full of water. When I looked at it noticed a 2 ft section totally blown out. I won’t be buying another one and it I see people looking at it I will tell them they are junk.

  32. This product is A WASTE of time and money . I wish I would have read the reviews BEFORE spending my money. that saying you live and learn. I was just outside my grace period to get my money back from Sam’s. And don’t try calling the company because they give you the run around , and ALL kinds of excuses too. Mine busted at the seam , and started flooded my yard. Your product SUCKS…. I told the man that answered the phone about all the bad reviews and he tells me that , a lady told me yesterday that she loved hers. I told him that she must have had hers only a cpl of days LOL.

  33. these are the biggest rip off I have ever seen, both of the extra stong hoses I have bought have broken cause there shit.. I am all ready talking to a lawyer about you guys for false advertisement , there are thousands of un happy people like me from what im reading and having the same complaint “these hoses suck” so im sure I will not have a problem winning a couple billion dollar lawsuit against you guys for bad customer service and fake product that does not work. so you guys should pull your lie of an add on t.v. and worry about your mad people with these hoses, and its not just a few, its thousands of mad people

  34. Complete waste of time and money! Though an intriguing idea – a hose that never needs coiling! Here’s my experience – out of the six purchased in the last year, let’s see … six have failed! Same failure mode each time – sudden and catastrophic leak at the faucet fitting. First one, a 25 ftr, purchased Jun ’13, failed right out of the can. No problem, back to Target for a cheerful replacement. This one lasted, and we liked the coolness factor so much we jumped in and bought a 50′ at Walmart, than another couple of 50’s online. Then for the ultimate in wow, in Oct ’13 bought a 100 ftr online. OK, so call me a slow learner. But so fun watching that 100 ftr snake it’s way into a little ball. Until, a couple of months into the grand experiment, the 50’s started bursting. Then the 25′. Finally, on it’s 9 month anniversay, my 100′ pride and joy – turned it off for a second, then back on to water one more plant, and ‘blooey’! But it gets better – called the FlexAbleHose Customer Service line @ 973.287.5160 and was told, “You’re outside your 60-day warranty, take a hike.” Hmmmm, do I see a pattern there? Crappy product, crappy warranty, crappy service …. So it’s off to Lowe’s this afternoon to buy a REAL hose … or six!


  36. I bought three of these from a closing Kmart store.

    One blew off the male connector the first time it was used. That was fixable and is still in use. It has been used about four times so far. I do not expect it to last much longer.

    The second burst about ten feet from the male connector the third time it was used. I was able to repair this bust it burst at another spot the second time I used it. I believe another repair would be futile.

    The third burst about ten feet from the male connector after the webbing developed a 18 inch split. I will not try to repair this one.

    Parts to make the repairs cost about $7 and the repairs took about 30 minutes total after I figured out how to do it.

    Two of the hoses have been consigned to the garbage can and the third will probably follow before the end of summer.

    These were a waste of money, time and effort. The idea is fantastic. The product, not so.

    I would not recommend this to anyone.

  37. I’ve bought 2 of the as seen on TV flex hoses. They were great for the first couple weeks, then broke completely. So bad, they were unusable. I thought the first one I bought was just a dud, so I bought another one, and turns out it’s just a BAD product!!!! within a week, the hoses both had holes in them, don’t know why because they were always emptied, and stored in a container. I only turned them on while watering. I’ve had my new flex hose for 3 weeks now, and it just broke during regular watering. It’s a HORRIBLE product!!! Don’t waste your money!!!

  38. Al Borland should be ashamed of himself. Bought 3, returned 3. Last one sounded like a firecracker when it burst.

  39. I purchased two FlexAble hoses, 25 ft. length, at Boscov’s last July. They worked very well and were emptied of all water and stored in the garage over the winter. When hooking them up a few weeks ago, both leaked and the connections came away from the hoses. A total loss!!!!

  40. I got two 50’hoses and this is the first summer I have used them. First both adjustable nozzles leaked and had to be replaced. Today I wanted to use one and it developed a hole about half-way.

    The hoses are a grossley inferior product. I would not recommen them to my worst enemy. In my opinion,the ads for them borders on being a scam.

    Don’t buy these.

  41. Bought 2 of these from the store, before the summer was out both of them blew and has holes in them. Complete junk, Do not buy one. They have to improve them quite a bit. Try to get your money back???? NOT Please do not buy one, they are trouble.


    • Like everyone else here I got ripped off with these hoses. Same story. At first they are great. But they are so poorly made they will ALWAYS EXPLODE. ALWAYS. Don’t be tricked by the “stronger” version. It’s all BS. AND THEY WONT REPLACE ANYMORE. THEY ARE MAKING SO MUCH MONEY OFF THIS SCAM….probably gathering our credit card info & addresses for a bigger scam.

      If someone could do this legitimately it would be super. But don’t trust ANY OF THESE DORKS! Scam artists. The poor fools who are paid to take the complaint calls are overwhelmed and numb.

      The company should be investigated.

  43. I have had to replace 3 hoses in the last 3 weeks. All of the developed leaks and then burst. I must that I am very impressed with hosed and wish that they had lasted muck longer. Two of them were purchased from Shopko and the first two online. I really nursed them to no avail. I have now resorted to replacing them with a normal hose which are not easy to use. I assure you if the hose improved on I would purchase them a pain.

    Good luck.

  44. Good product when it works, but it is faulty.

    Mine “broke” after the first use. When I was using it, I was really happy because it was just like the infomercials, and then I was very disappointed when it broke. After I examined it, I saw that the inside tubing had detached from the nozzle. I took the time to thread it/snake it/push it back through the cloth lining, and then securely reattached the tubing to its nozzle fittings. Now it’s good as new again!

    If your issue is the same as mine, then it’s fixable, but if your tubing actually bursts/splits, then that’s a bigger problem.

    I hope my repair works, but just in case, I have my London Drugs ready to return it.

  45. When I saw this first advertise, I was immediately thrilled. Like many others, the larger hoses are cumbersome. I ordered two. Both ruptured after only a few uses. I called customer service and they replaced them. They ruptured, I called to complain and were replace. They ruptured and were replace. They arrived in November. There was no need for flexible hose use in Iowa from November until now. Guess what, both hose (those replaced in November) both rupture. I called this morning to talk to Mike and told me that i am out of my 60-day window. 60-days is all that this great concept/poor design hose is good for. I asked to speak to his supervisor (Jodi). She told me that same thing. I told her to read her file and the many problems I had. She finally told me that she will replace just one hose, but will have to pay shipping. I told her that I am very disappointed and that she can keep her faulty product. I the meantime, the back-ground noise was so loud, I have to think that they are fielding many other customer complaints. Also, note the time of may call. I called a few minutes after they opened. I saw their competitors hose at the Iowa State Fair last summer. I guess that Flexible Hose last me as a customer. I work in sales, I know what it takes to win a customer. Unfortunately for Flexible Hose, they know how to lose them too.

    • We first purchased two 75 ft hoses last year. Within a week one of them split wide open.
      It was replaced. Just used the 2nd hose and there was a loud pop and water everywhere, it too had split.
      I called the number ( overseas person hard to understand) explained what had happened, too bad your 60 days have expired. That’s it !!!!

  46. I bought this hose at Walmart and was thrilled how small it was, then it ripped right near the spigot. Total waste of money!

  47. I have purchased and replace now 4 of these hoses. Purchased the first one from Bed Bath and Beyond and after bursting in the middle, stupidly continued to keep taking the 2nd, 3rd and 4th one back to them for replacement. What a rip off…scam and piece of shit these are. I hope the State Attorney Generals Office will investigate this company. Scam artists. Keep them off of the air to continue advertising this piece of shit. I am really pissed as are the 100’s of other “happy Users”. Every review I have read explains the piece of shit this product is…and the company that promotes it. Please do not waste your time, effort and money on this piece of shit. Thank you

  48. My experience was not good with this hose. Had two and both sprung leaks after only a few uses. Do not recommend this hose. It’s a waste of money.

  49. My mother bought flexable hose and used it 2x… I was standing there watching it as the cheaply made plastic grew enormous and burst.. the fabric had split first…. thank goodness my Mother who was up on a ladder didn’t get too startled by the burst and loud pop it made….. what a waste of money for all those elderly people who have bought into this product. Many of her friends have had the same issue.

    • I have had the same experience. I bought 2 50ft ones and the second time of using them they popped. What a rip off!! I want my money back!!

      • Oh and the website says if any problems, please email the company. How do you email the company? They give you no email address.

  50. Bought 2 50 foot and 2 25 foot Flex Hose pros. One of the 50 footers and one 25 footer burst after the second or third use. They take about 10 minutes to drain and don’t retract like they show on TV. These hoses are not worth the time or money. Called about replacement and never did get to talk to a live person despite calling 4-5 times.

    Have now bought 2 regular hoses and waiting for the last 2 Flex hoses to break. They are a scam

  51. Don’t buy this hose! I can’t believe they are even still being sold. The profit they make off something that works nicely for a few watering is unbelievable. I have read others testimonies here but wish I had read them before wasting my money! They ought to be sued because they do not back their product and it’s still selling!

  52. I bought this hose and got a 2nd for 29 bucks. I have had them about a month. Today, one of the hoses blew up like a water balloon and burst. It is trash(ed) and so is this product considering my experience.

  53. Bought this hose last year and it ended up leaking all over everything except the plants. I had to pull out my regular hose to water my very large garden and yard! Very disappointed!

  54. I have had three when they first came out== all three blew at the end when I left the water on with the end closed have you upgraded this problem ?? if so they are great == please let me know === thanks == vic

  55. This is a scam. Liars. Ripoffs. Waste of money. CANT EVEN SPELL THE NAME OF THEIR PRODUCT RIGHT. Here you go, scammers; a spelling lesson for you.

    F L E X I B L E

    And here’s another one: THIEVES

  56. I placed a call today to customer service for our flexable hoses. Two that we bought last year have broken from the sprayer and cannot be reattached. I got an “I’m sorry” from the agent. I said “is that all you can do for me?” Her answer was “yes”. Wow! A lot of money spent for hoses that were barely used through one season. They were put away nicely for the winter, and lo and behold when we got them out for spring clean ups, we found them to be defective. I was hoping to prove my husband wrong when he said not to order because they’re probably junk. Well, he was right:( I would not recommend this product, simply because of their refusal to back up poor quality.

  57. The flexahose as seen on tv does not last. It is a worthless piece of trash. I purchased 2 in October of 2012 and took great care of them. I brought them back into the garage after after use. I only washed my car. They leaks all over in February. I used them only once a week for a short time. The sprayer they give you is a plastic piece of junk and the hose cuts down on your water pressure-because it does not have firmness of a rubber or vinyl hoe. They will not give you your money back-there is no warranty-only a short 60 day return policy. It dies after the 60 days for everyone.

    • I purchased my 2 hoses March 2013. They work fine, except the water pressure is not to good. Now starting Jan. 2014, the fabric is tearing & water squirts out of it. So far super glue works to seal the problem but new tears keep appearing. I’m going back to the old heavy rubber hose.

  58. Like everyone stated previously…the hose is a joke. Mine lasted about 4 uses and then burst. I called and the warranty is 60 days. I would not have another one even if it had brass fittings.

    • Couldn’t agree more. Bought mine at a store–lasted just beyond warranty period. They all are truly pieces of junk. Carry your ten pound hose (a good rubber one) that will last.

  59. Do NOT buy this piece of garbage. BOTH of mine have sprung leaks, and when I called to complain, I was asked to take a survey about the company, but instead of being given survey questions, they tried to get me to sign up for a marketing list with a bogus Wal-Mart gift card.

    Bad product, no warranty, and shifting call center.

  60. I bought two 75′ hoses from Flexablehose.com about six months ago. When I ordered them I added the extra cost rough terrain exterior feature even thought they would only be used occasionally. Our front and back yards have timed in-ground sprinklers and drip systems. I noticed that the one in the front yard that I use occasionally to wash the cars had begun to fray it’s “rough terrain” exterior. I had never used the one in the back yard and it had just hung on the faucet back there. I was cleaning up the dog’s yard and grabbed the back yard hose to use it for the first time. The thing began pouring water from the tap end through the green outer hose. On inspection, the expanding inner hose had separated from the faucet connecting flange. I tossed the hose. I just used the front 75′ one today and tried to take it into the back yard. I reached the end of the hose about 50′ into the yard. This isn’t a 75′ hose. I complained to the Flexablehose customer service today and they told me that, if I hadn’t trashed the one that was separated, they would have replaced it. Sure they would. Otherwise, they were very sorry I wasn’t satisfied with their product. Somebody aught to do something about these bandits!

  61. $150.77 and $107.86 for me and my dad mine had extra strength stuff added to it. within 2wks all of mine but 1 was busted…. I dont know what I was thinking but I was furious and before I knew it I was agreeing to PAY $127.82 to replace mine…. he was really good at finagling! and boy did he get to me! well within 1 week (some the very day) these were all busted including the last one from the first batch and some from dads. I boxed and sent them all back, of course, paying the shipping as in the past (the first guy the finagled me so bad, part of how he worked was to tell me NOT to send the product back, saving the shipping) now dads others are busted but now I have 2 shipping’s and NO working hoses and almost $400 in product gone and need to ship another load back. … so product with shipping and no product I am out close to $500. Now, I am a dog rescuer, I have NO money. These hoses were light weight and easy for my young volunteers to use and store. I also had to go invest money in heavy hoses. Its been over a month since I sent the last batch of hoses. I am so tired of getting taken. I want the TV crew that goes to the bad people and faces them and forces them to admit to things on air. These people owe me money. some popped right at the black end, some popped in half, some had holes developed suddenly, save yourself! save face! save your money! don’t buy!

  62. Flexible hoses are great while they last but they only last a few months before they rupture and are useless. Out of a total of 4 hoses, all have ruptured in less than 3 month of light use. The company only warrentys for 60 days and will not replace the ruptured ones even though they advertise that “this is the last hose you will ever need.”

  63. I bought 5 or 6 of the hoses. Each and every one of then leaked from the get go and they were given to different people so it was just not me. Nothing else to say, they don’t work.

  64. The hose split after using it one week. I got a free shower though. I boxed up the hose and mailed it back. Never heard a word. I would have liked my money back or at least a new hose, but after reading the reviews, I would have just wanted the money back. Rip off!!!!

  65. I bought this hose and within 2 months it split. I had the second one of the 2 for the price of one and I used that one – for another 2 months. The coupler to the spigot split on this one. I would NOT recommend this product to any one. It is a $60 rip off. Stay with the conventional hoses.

    • I purchased this hose. It was wonderful for all of three weeks, then it just exploded. I realized there was no telephone number to register a complaint. I feel they owe me a new Hose. 🙂

  66. ANY flex hose — even the more expensive ones — are absolute junk. I’ve tried 8 of them — 6 of the $19.95 ones and 2 of the $69 ones — and they have ALL exploded. We thought it had something to do with dragging the hose over the edge of our brick walkway, which can be sharp, but that was determined not to be the cause when we were careful to maneuver the heavier duty hose with the brass fittings ($69) away from the brick and it STILL exploded. We have lost a minimum of $200 on these things. Great concept — extremely poor execution. Back to the drawing board, y’all!!

  67. My son purchased 2 25 foot hoses, he recommended it to me, I purchased 1 25 foot and 1 50 foot hose. The following week after 1 month my son’s hose ruptured at the connection to the valve. I thought it was a fluke but mine ruptured at the 30 day mark as well and my water pressure is 60 PSI. Even at 19 dollars these are not worth the price. I am surprised that the states have not restricted the sale of these hoses.

  68. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THE FLEX-ABLE HOSE! THEY’RE JUNK. RUN!!! I have a back disorder which causes acute and chronic pain, so I purchased three flex-able hoses due to the light weight. I followed the instructions to the tee and filled them very slowly each time. One exploded on the first use and the other two ruptured within approximately 5 uses. $75 later, I have no hose because the limited warranty expired. Needless to say, I’m off to Walmart to pay $20 for a heavy one that will last for years.

  69. I bought two of the green expandable hoses. One broke the very first time I hooked it up and turned it on. I returned it and got another one. Those two didn’t last a month. If you don’t go back to the faucet and shut them off, the water pressure builds up and the inner part explodes. JUNK !! The only good thing about them is that they are lightweight and they don’t kink up, but they’re not worth the money when they only lasted about a month.

    • I bought my hoses at Walmart, so I was able to get refunds. The woman at the customer service in Walmart told me that they had gotten a lot of complaints about them. BUT, they are still selling them! One day when I was in the check out line at Walmart, the woman behind me had one in her cart. I told her how lousy they are and advised her not to buy it, but she looked at me like I was crazy. By now, she probably wishes she had listened to me. I bought the green hoses. Just wondering if the other colored ones are any better.

  70. Junk! They blow out under normal use. No wonder the warrantee is only 60 days – that’s all they’re good for.

  71. Is there a class action lawsuit against them their hoses exploded tried calling and got nowhere since they seem to be based in a third world country where the workers claim they do understand what I was saying

  72. How could you ever have sold this product without doing quality and safety checks? I could have been blinded when the hose separated from the spray nozzle and then flip wildly around and hit me in the eye. I first thought I was at fault and did not connect the hose and spray nozzle correctly. I checked again to insure the washer was in place and that it was screwed on correctly. The same thing happened three more times ( except I was careful not to get hit again).

    Who should I contact if there is any damage to my eye? My doctor said he will need to check me again after the swelling goes down. I now have to go around with a black eye which is very embarrassing.

  73. I was very happy to receive my 100′ flexable hose in mid June. Today it popped right in the middle. I called Flexablehose and they said the guarantee is only good for 60 days and therefore tuff. Well it lasted twice as long as they said so I guess I should be happy!

  74. Over the summer I bought two ( didn’t get one free) and absolutely love it. It is an incredible product. But today I went out to water and both hoses have holes I tried using electrical tape but it was just as bad. Very disappointed. I have recommended your product to all my friends and family hope it doesn’t happen to them

  75. Flex hose does not hold up. It will burst a hole in the tubing. Its a great concept and wish it did work, and it did for a short while. Now it is useless and company will not stand behind the product because I purchased it at walmart at double the price. No nice Flex Hose. Warning to all customers this product is cheap and will not hold up for long term use. Mine was only 3 months old.

  76. I purchased two hoses 7/15/13. I have the charge for $45.42. They never sent my order. I can’t get through the customer service number. There is no email on the website.

    This is what I get when I go to the customer service link and put in my information: We’re sorry!! We were unable to locate your order. Please review the search criteria and reenter your information exactly as you did when you placed your order.

  77. I bought two 50′ flexible hoses in March of this year. One was a present for my dad. His came lose from the plastic end piece and might got a hole and blew up. I wish I had read these reviews before I purchased these for 65 dollars by the time they added shipping and handling and taxes. When I called the company, only 60 days refund and its been longer than that. This product stinks and I would not recommend to anyone.

  78. I ordered the flexible hose as seen on TV to assist in Autumn overseeding of the lawn. By time my hose arrived in December, it was Winter, and the outside water was turned off and blown dry, and needless to say, overseeding was long over. I didn’t get to use the hoses till overseeding the following autumn, and on the second use, the hose detached from the ending. I called the company, and they said the warranty had expired and the company did nothing about my broken hose.

  79. What a piece of junk! Bought two hoses, first one broke on the first use, and the second one broke two months later! I wish I would have read these reviews before wasting my money!

  80. Inferior product! Bought two 25′ hoses and they both split within days of using them. What a waste of product. Do not buy…will not recommend this product!

  81. Go buy a good quality hose instead of this toy Flexible hose. My first flex hose burst at the male connection in less than 2 weeks (It takes me 15 minutes to water my plants). The second lasted 5 days longer then it burst on the opposite end. The replacement hose (yes they sent me another) lasted a whole month then it burst at the male connection.

    The flexible hose is as described on TV and is quite easy to use. However, I did not request another replacement hose when the third one failed – what’s the point -would only last a week or so.

    • Piece of junk! My hose detached from the inside the 4th time I used it! Save your money! My friend’s hose burst through the material the 2nd time she used it. JUNK JUNK JUNK.

  82. The idea is great and it does all it’s supposed to until it springs a leak and then finally burst in a shower of water. This all takes place within two weeks. We thought the first might be defective and tried another- the same thing happened. We have a very small yard- only have to stretch it out about 30 feet and we had a 50 footer. These are one of the biggest waste of money out there. Stay away- it is guaranteed to break on you.

  83. We were given the Flexable hose as a gift and it lasted about 4 months. I was using it this afternoon and it burst about 1 ft from the point of connection to the house. I believe the problem lies in the material which makes up the sleeve. I appears that direct sunlight may cause deterioration of the sleeve material which tears and allow the inner tube to expand to the point of rupture. This is my best guess.

  84. Ordered 2 of the 75 ft hoses in January and was pleased with their performance. Less than a year later both have leaks in the center of the hose. Called customer service and was informed they are guaranteed for 60 days only. The hoses were used maybe once a week and were properly maintained. It looks like the product is not as good as advertised and the company is not willing to stand behind its product. A lesson well learned.

    • I bought 2 of these for my daughters boyfriend last Christmas. She called me today and said that both have just fallen apart. What a piece of junk they are!! And I see on their website that they are only guaranteed for 60 days. And of course they will not stand behind their product and replace them. Yes, a lesson well learned.

  85. We have been waiting for a return label for 2 months. The last time I called I asked to speak to a supervisor. I was put on hold and told the supervisor was still busy and they would send another return label. Still no label and now the phone is disconnected and the web sites won’t pull. up. We made a dumb mistake but believe me it won’t happen again.

  86. I bought one of these hoses due to having fibromyalgia so I would not have to pull on a regular water hose, used it once, put it up neatly, and when I went back to use it a second time it was already split. please do not buy this product, it will be a waste of money and time.

  87. So many bad reviews about the hose bursting…I never got that far, mine leaks so badly at both ends no water goes through it! Even tried to buy new connectors but the leak is at the fabric so nothing will help.

    They need to remove this product and fix the problems before selling any more.

  88. Whew!!! So glad I read these reviews tonight. I am an 80 y/o woman who loves gardening, but am too weak to drag heavy hoses around. Saw the ad on TV, by the guy who claims to be the inventor of this product, claiming that his are much higher quality than the imitators. I live on Social Security, and although I’m disappointed that these hoses got such horrible reviews, I’m so relieved that I didn’t spend my $$ on them. I was going to order two 50′ hoses that seemed like the perfect solution to my physical problems. These reviews really saved me money and unneeded aggravation. I’m disappointed that my dream hose has tuned into a nightmare for so many, so there’s not way I’ll waste my limited money on any of these. I do hate the way the conventional hoses seem to become discolored and are so hard to me to wind them up, but appreciative of being saved the $$$ and heartache of buying one of these hoses……

    • Collage707, you took the words right out of my mouth. Thank you EVERYONE for taking time out of your day to help others. Bravo! I get to save my money because you cared. Thanks again!

  89. Flex hose engineers; I had 4, mind you {four}, of your so-called flex hose, and I’ve never had a hose that was a lack of durability, in 5 {Five} month’s I had your hoses {Pop} like a balloon, and got me all wet, when it pop!

    I’m not a engineer, but the enter expanding hose, and the outer sheet need’s to be re-enforced, so it doesn’t weaken, and burst like a balloon!! END OF STORY!!

    Sincerely, unhappy customer !!
    A. Kayo

    • P.S. My use of your flex hose’s were normal, and not abused!!

      Your idea of this hose is great, but still need’s testing!! The hose’s I had all {Burst} like a balloon in different area’s on the hose, so the hose isn’t prefect for public sale!! Test some are advised!!

      A. Kayo

    • Same experience. Popped hose. Sent them back and got screwed for $27 shipping and processing charge. This company stinks. Cost me money and now I have nothing!

      They should be shut down.

  90. Try and get into the habit of reading reviews and product feedback before buying stuff off the Internet as well as from stores too. Could save a lot of frustration, heartache and $$$ too.

  91. Who’s up for a class action lawsuit against this Phony ripoff company? Any attorneys out there that purchased any of these shit hoses? Their making a fortune off of a whole lot of people and another fortune off of over inflated shipping charges.

  92. I’ll add my comment to the rest. These hoses are crap. I’ve gone thru 3-50 footers. All burst after a couple of uses. If you want to try one don’t buy it off of TV commercials having to pay twice the shipping costs as what it really cost to ship. Their making a fortune off of the people that don’t bother returning them. Buy it from Walmart so when it bursts, (not if it bursts), you can return it with ease.

  93. This is one of the worst purchases ever. Total rip off. Does not coil back up as shown on TV and after about 6 uses it pops and is totally useless. Big scam. They are laughing while counting their money.

  94. I bought a 75 foot hose in April. Only used it a few times. The hose blew out below the nozzle end. There is not any way to contact flex-able hose on their website except by phone. I assume that will be a waste of time. DON’T BUY.

  95. I have purchased 4 hose’s and all 4 have sprung a leak. The first one developed a pin hole right above the nozzle. I tried to replace it with a repair kit I purchased. But it did not work. The other three developed holes and leaked like a sieve. I tried to repair the holes but could not. A total rip off, cheap plastic nozzles and even cheaper hoses.

  96. This was the best thing that ever happened to outdoor gardening, I told everyone I knew how great these were. Two weeks later I was telling everyone, I knew how sorry I was. I hoped no one had purchased one. It popped. This is the worst best invention I ever bought.

    • Customer service stinks. Tried to talk to them when my order was messed up. No one spoke understable English. Raved to everyone how great the hose was and before the summer was over, hose sprung leaks. It was not overused. Save your money. I agree, a class action suit would be appropriate.

  97. I bought the 30 ft and 75 ft hoses and they both split at the connection to the sprayer. They were both replaced and both split again. I was told when I called to tell the Flex-ible Hose people about the latest burst that my warranty time had expired, but they would send me one hose if I paid the shipping and handling (about $5.000. I told them to keep their defective hose and I would write a review. This probably won’t do anything, but it sure makes me feel better!

    It is truly a major Rip-Off………!

  98. I purchased 2 hoses – 1 burst right away the other lasted a couple of weeks. I loved the idea of it being very light weight and curls up nicely for storage – but that the only good thing about it. These hoses are not durable at all!!! I’m not even going to try and get a refund from the company after reading all the reviews/complaints – I’ll just cut my losses and never buy another one!

    • Joanna, Re: Flex Hose. Not returning the crappy products they peddle on TV infomercials is exactly how they make a fortune, plus charging double the cost of shipping for extra profit. Most of the stuff they push on TV eventually winds up at Walmart. I always wait for that so I can return it with no problem and no over inflated shipping charges.

  99. My husband purchased two flexable hoses for me for Christmas. We didn’t start using them until May, so they were already out of warranty. Terrible product. They both split on the inside within 45 days of mild use. The company will not stand behind this awful product.

  100. Bought two 75′ hoses. Within two or three uses, one BURST soaking my clothes and shoes before I could turn it off. Hundreds of complaints online from scambook.com to amazon.com show the same complaint. Company accepts returns, but KEEPS the shipping/handling fees. Disreputable.

  101. This product is a piece of garbage! I was stupid enough to order the “rough terrain upgrade”, which is absolutely worthless! Not to mention the spray nozzle attachment sent with the hose, leaks like a sieve! I’ve used one of the hoses MAYBE half a dozen times. The last time I used it, the nozzle end shot off the end of the hose WHILE I was using it! When I called customer service to request a replacement, I was told my 60 day warranty period had passed and they would do nothing! Even though it is clear the product is extremely defective! I could have went to Walmart, bought a hose the same length for half the price and it would have at least lasted the season!

    I would not recommend this product at all. Might as well throw your money in the toilet.

  102. I bought the flex hose. This past Friday, it sprung a leak. I taped it up and continued to use it. Today, it developed a split. I plan to take it back tomorrow to where I bought. I do not plan to buy another one. Supposedly, you can run over it with a car, and it won’t burst. Yeah, right.

  103. Took 2 months to receive 2 75′ hoses. Both burst at the end within 90 days. Called customer service, and was told warrantee expired, but made an offer for us to buy the “upgraded” hose. What a rip off!

  104. This company is a SCAM! I cancelled my order less than an hour after I placed it and they told me it was too soon to cancel! It wasn’t in the system. Then when I called first thing the following day, they said it already shipped!! They charged me 39.96 for shipping for an item I never wanted!! While I got the refund for the hose, I still haven’t been refunded the shipping!! What a SCAM! I am reporting you to the better business bureau!!!

  105. Got four 100 footers, two for each home. They are even better than we hoped. They are so light and easy to handle we can’t believe it. We used to dread trying to deal with our heavy hoses and reels. Now we don’t need reels. Have had no problems. We bought the heavier duty model just to be on the safe side. I am telling all my friends about them.

  106. This hose keeps breaking about every 3 months & they won’t replace it after 60 days. I went through 2 hoses about every 60 days so they won’t even replace them now. Thats why they want you to buy 2!!

  107. This hose is nothing but garbage, second one didnt even last 1 mins, just exploded with water gushing out of all kind of holes

  108. I purchased 75′ of flexable hose in Dec 2012 and didn’t receive this till Feb 2013,it is now Aug 2013 and the hose sprung a leak. I live on the West Coast so no severe weather and it was kept in a hose caddy all the time. This is a rip off. I wasted $80 on this hose, will never buy one again and the company will not compensate or replace.

    I wanted a hose like this because I don’t have the strength to manage a regular hose, but do not buy this hose!!

  109. My 4 hoses exploded violently within 4 days of use… The projectile end nearly killed my cat who will no longer go out on the deck. THIS HOSE IS FRAUD. At best it is a disposable product for a boat to use 3-4 times in an emergency.

  110. I purchased 2 hoses. Loved the concept also. One broke after about a month. Burst from the middle. The other is still working. When I spoke to a customer service person for a replacement I was told I would receive an e-mail for the shipping label for me to return the hose at no charge to me. Well, needless to say I’m still waiting for the contact. Oh well, I guess I chalk this one up to “sucker”. Too bad, I wish the product was sturdier. I do like the light weight handling.

  111. The Flex-Able hose by Tristar is garbage. Bought and used it one time for less than 15 minutes and it blew up! And the warranty is useless.

    • Used hose one time kept count on fingers of one hand still got three fingers and a thumb left Thank goodness fire hoses are not made this way the whole country would be ashes by now these hoses are a scam and con company should lose license forever..

  112. The Flex-Hose offered on TV as well as the POCKET HOSE sold in all the major retailers is a Rip-Off. The TV offer indicated the hose has an inner lining but that is not true unless you get the upgraded hose. Went to the returns dept of Home Depot, Lowes and Bed BAth and Beyomnd and each had 10 to 15 returns per day. Most of the complaints were for split hoses.

  113. Love the concept and how the hose worked for thirty days and then started leaking..From the reviews I have read it is an inferior rip off product.

  114. Bought two flexible hoses. The plastic parts (open and close valve) broke within a week of use. Now the hose has actually broken open and is trash.

  115. They are very nice in concept, but extremely unreliable, Two of my 4 hoses burst within 2 weeks of use. I am now waiting for the other two to burst.

    Stronger material needs to be used. If they will hold together, they will be very popular. They are lightweight and easy to maneuver.

  116. Not only did it take 6 month’s to finally get both of my 100 ft Flex hoses, but they both blew out within the first month of having them. I followed their instructions to the tee and drained them fully and stored them inside my house….The Flex hose is total crap and a huge waste of money, and I don’t expect to receive a refund, for I don’t want to waste more money shipping it back to them….

  117. I bought 4 of these hoses. First one broke within a week. The company replaced it. After the two month warranty, two more broke and the company would not replace them. I liked the hose but its not worth the money. Will not every recommend this hose to anybody.

  118. I purchased from the website, took two months and they were all broken witin 30 days. Complete ripoff. Need to file a class action lawsuit and put these guys out of business.

  119. I purchased around 8 of these before Christmas and spent over $275. I started using them last month. Two that I opened and started using pulled apart at the seams and burst. I called the manufacturer, and they said they only had a 60-day warranty.

    Do NOT purchase these hoses. A total waste of money!

  120. I purchased 6 of your hoses, 3 for me & 3 for gifts. With very light use, my 92 year old mother’s just sprung a leak & quit transporting water. I bought her another one–same thing happened. The one I bought for my daughter, same thing and same, hand water the plants light use. The other 3 I purchased for myself & got rid of all my heavy hoses. One just sprung a leak while I was filling the pool with water and I have 2 of the 6 still working. Unfortunately I did not save receipts–but I am telling my story and telling all to save their receipts!

    I loved this product–and hope they can reconfigure and find a way of reinforcing the inside and making it a great invention.


  121. I tried to order the flexable hose and after waiting 2 months I was told that it could not be shipped to my address. I live in a normal Canadian city with a normal mailing address and they could not tell me why they can’t mail it to me. I give up!!!

      • I purchased the twin pack two months ago at WalMart; one is still working, the other had two small leaks about 7 and 9 feet from the end and the nozzle turned all the way around. I used it anyway and then last week while I was watering with it, it just exploded. Was going to send it back to the company, but guess what? No street address on the box. Sent an email to the website on the box, but guess what? Undeliverable. Took it back to WalMart, they couldn’t do anything because I only bought the one back. RIP OFF!!!

    • I’ve had 2 hoses burst. One 50 ft sprung a leak & then burst after a few usages. I purchase 2 25ft to replace it & yesterday the other 50 ft one burst while my adult daughter was holding it almost bursting her ear drum. It was that loud. Thank goodness neither of my grandsons were playing with it. I now have just two 25 ft ones left & I won’t be buying any more.

  122. I bought the 2 for 1-75′ hose, had the end come off one, had 2 malfunctioning nozzles and had another hose develop a leak mid hose. Argued with customer service many times as the original purchase was in the middle of winter & didn’t use it till June due to a wet late spring. Have since had hoses replaced but don’t expect much for life expectency. Keep the hose off hard surfaces as outer shell wears out easily.

  123. Really like the function of the hose but quality is bad…really bad. The first one I purchased developed a leak a couple of days of light use. Returned it to the store and got another.

    This one had a leak from the plastic end, a crack I failed to see at first. Hooked it up, turned on the water and got an unexpected shower. Thats it for me, back to the old fashioned hose for me. A real piece of junk as far as I am concerned.

  124. This hose is unbelievably easy to use and put away. Unfortunately for me they apparently are not very durable. Mine exploded after about 7 or 8 uses. The hose inside the fabric just broke in half. Light and Easy to use but really is just a cheap piece of junk.

  125. DON’T buy this product. I did and one of them blew a hole in it after very little use & of course it ONLY has a 60 day limited warranty. I called in and they would not do anything except sell me another one!!

  126. I purchased 2 x 25′ hoses in April, first time use one hose ruptured at nozzle and with sufficient force to place a mark on my face, lucky it did not hit my eye. I sent the hose back and was sent two additional hose, used the return hoses and both eventually broke under normal use. Called and am receiving a return shipping address to send 2 hoses back.

    Looked at comments (426) and the majority were not favorable. There are some real quality control and manufacturing issues with this product and to the point that the company may have some future damages and litigation from the force of water and the pressure when it does break.

    The company has been good about returning the hoses but I would rather pay more for a quality product and not have to go through all the calls and return shipping orders and continue to have only one hose that works.

    Certainly would not recommend allowing children to use the hose.

  127. We purchased to 25ft. Hose; both blew out this week after only a few times using it. We still have one 75 ft. Hose intact, but I have only used it once. This company seems to be ripping off the public by selling a very defective product and most likely making millions….and these hose could also be dangerous as the hose EXPLODES when simply holding it to water plants. Anyone report them to the Better Business Bureau? I will fie a complaint.

  128. I purchased two 75 ft. flexible hoses about 3 months ago. They have BOTH blown holes in them. I took very good care and followed all instructions. IT IS A SCAM AND NOT WORTH A DAMN!!!

  129. I read many of the reviews and have to agree about the hole at the connector. I found there are several types of male end of these hoses. The one with the shut off handle is the one that splits and leaks and even on the first use of hose. I took mine back to store and found same hose without shut off handle and these do not seem to have that problem. So far so good the hose that has not shut off end. I will put in a new review if I spoke to soon.

    • I agree, I purchased 4x 50″ at Home Depot and all leaked at the connection. I order 2x 100″ hoses from Flexable hose website. 1 Hose had 2 female connections. The other hose just leaked. Very disappointed. Feel like the use cheap connections to attached to the hose. Idea was great, hopefully someone will make better improvements to the idea.

  130. We bought 2 to start with. One got a hole in it about 3 weeks later. No biggy. Stuff happens. Bought another to replace the one that was bad. That next day the second one started leaking a lot at the connector and hose. # days later the newest one started leaking at 2 spots. I was SOOO careful with the last two hoses. Carried them not letting them touch the ground or anything else. The last hose started leaking the 3rd or 4th time we used it!!!! We only use them to water out flower bed and pots. an area about 10 x 24!!! Very disappointed and won’t buy any more!!!

  131. I bought two Flex Hoses. One of them was fine the other never allowed water to come out. I call the company and they said I needed to mail the faulty one back and pay for the shipping myself! BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE…WILL NOT PURCHASE ONE AGAIN.

  132. Absolutely loved the hose. Coiled it up and hung it on a J hook and moved my big reel from the garage to the back yard. BUT WAIT!!! It served me well for over a month…maybe two. It then exploded. It’s a great idea, but unfortunately, the quality is not there. Tomorrow I will haul my big hose reel back to the garage and consider the flexible hose a lost cause. Hopefully someone will come up with a flexible hose that holds up. Based on all of these reviews, that time has not yet come.

  133. Bought two hoses, one burst the other one the spicket attachment tore off. Trying to find customer service no. Piece of CRAP.

  134. I liked the compactness of the hose but the joints that allow one to hook the hose to the home are made of plastic. Within a week these plastic pieces had cracked and leaked. For this reason I would not purchase this hose again.

  135. We had purchased a Flexable hose from TV commercial, buy one, get on free. Bought it in Feb. and started using it a little over 60 days ago. One of the hoses sprung a leak last night, so I called customer care…. They would not give a new one due to the 50 day warranty. Who knows when the other hose will go bad. Same thing happened to one we purchased from Bed Bath and beyond. Only this one blew up, sounded like a large fire cracker. The inner lining is what blew up, outer cloth kept rubber in.

    Neither hoses where subject to sun or abrasive abuse. Nor were they run over by vehicles. For all the ease of use, I could not afford to keep buying this style of hose…. Might as well put in a watering system, for in the long run it would be cheaper.

  136. Same story, I bought the 2 hoses. one spray nozzle broke the first week. 2 months later, one get any pressure on it and it spits in the middle. So POOR quality product. DO NOT BUY THIS HOSE.

  137. I purchased two 75 foot and one 50 foot flexable hose via phone order. The first hose began leaking in three spots after 6 days of use. The second lasted about 10 days and sprung at least four leaks. I’m trying to decide if I even want to use the third hose; I might as well try it – maybe I’ll get a few days of use from it.

    Either I was very unlucky or this is a really cheap-O-product.

  138. I purchased this product earlier this year, then saved it as a gift for Mother’s Day. The first hose exploded within 2 weeks of initial use. The second one leaked immediately when used the first time. Since I had bought in advance of giving this gift, I was out of luck on a refund. Avoid this product at all costs!!!

  139. I purchased 2 of these and my mom purchased 1, all three exploded after only a couple of uses. The company will refund your purchase price but not the shipping. I paid $50.00 in shipping( $25 to receive and $25.00 to return). They have now dropped the price to $19.95. It will still cost you more than the price of the hose to find out that it is junk.

  140. I bought one of the flex hoses approximately 3 weeks ago and thought it was great. I changed my mind on it when I was watering my plants outside last night. I layed the hose down so I could move some planted pots. I was about to reach down and pick up the hose and I heard this loud pop. Wouldn’t you know it the side of the hose blew out spraying water everywhere. So much for everything that is advertised.

    • Yes had the same thing happen, you could not pay me to buy them again, was so sad I loved it when it works.

  141. These hoses are a waste. We have had three of them burst at the connection within the last in two months. We sent one back and had it replaced and it broke within a couple of days. This product is not what the ads make it out to be. we will not purchase this item again until the company makes a lasting modification to eliminate this manufacturing defect.

  142. We went through three of them, I think the longest one lasted about a week. We gave one to my father in law as a Father’s Day gift and his exploded the second time he used it. So embarrassing! Fortunately we bought them at Lowes and were able to return two of them. I have reported this scam with the BBB. You can report using this link – cbbb.wufoo.com/forms/report-a-scam/

    Great idea, poorly executed! Please don’t waste your money!!

  143. DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY. I bought two 50 foot flexible hoses at Home Depot. The second time I used one it developed a hole. I took it back and was refunded my money. The following week the second hose also developed a hole. I took this one back as well and received my money back also. I was told many customers are returning their flexible hoses due to leaks. This was the a total waste of my time trying this product. If you still insist on buying this cheap made hose then buy it at Home Depot where they will refund your money.

  144. I had the Flexable hose a couple of weeks….it split in half. Quality is terrible and I want my money back.

  145. It is working great for me but I will no longer use it. I read on here that you are not suppose to drink from the hose. I was using it to water the outside kittys. It does actually say in the warnings that the water could get contaminated. Gotta love a hose you are not suppose to drink from.

  146. This product lasts about two weeks before it splits, took it back and got another one, which did the same thing in two weeks.

  147. I ordered 2 75 ft hoses. These things were great ……while they lasted. S light and easy to store. After about 2 weeks the hose broke apart where it joined to the nozzle that they provided. I called customer care and they said they would no replace because I ordered more than 60 days ago. Well, we have had a lot of rain and it wasn’t necessary to use it.

    Do not buy!

  148. I bought 2 of these 50 footers because they looked so awesome on TV. Used the first one for a couple of weeks before the hose tore open at the nozzle. Started using the second one and a couple days later it blew open and left a 3 foot rip in the hose. I loved the hose, it retracted as shown but not totally, easy to use and put away….but apparently another piece of Chinese junk. Very disappointed and won’t buy any more. Buyers beware!

  149. Bought a 50′ flexible hose and leaked from the start, even though it has washers in the connection end. Only lasted about a month then broke. Good hose, but poorly made.

  150. It is a piece of junk….however when I am skeptical I buy from local Home Depot etc. Mine broke in a week also was able to return to Home Depot no problem. As long as within 90 days they will refund money. I am trying out my second one but I did hold on to receipt and box…because I do not have a lot of faith in the product. Love the idea..they should invest in better materials and the would have a hit.

  151. Use the hose for a week and it started to leak in the main fose. Don’t but its a rip off.

  152. I tried to send this JOKE of a hose back and there is no phone number and no address to send it to .It has a hole in it and no gasket in one end. They have a phone # to buy. Nothing came with it.

  153. Bought 2 at different times. One from PCH and other from Kroger. Used each one no more than 3 times and they developed leaks. One had split green outer covering with hole in small plastic tube and the other looks to have pin hole leaks. They both are ruined and I’m out over 40 bucks. This is not a well built product and no way to fix.

  154. Mine lasted 3 weeks and the plastic nozzle cracked and BLEW off! When I tried to affix a brass fixture the hose had become a multi-porous soaker hose and was totally useless.

  155. While using one of these hoses the hose “blew up”. I hadn’t released the pressure for a few minutes but it blew a hole in the hose (right next to where I was standing) Scared the beegeebees out of me!

  156. I’ve had the Flexable hose for a couple of months but with the large amount of rain in the Northeast I’ve only used the hose twice. I turned the faucet on tonight and the hose exploded sending the nozzle into my forehead. Not really hurt but stunned. Ruined a pair of my shoes before I could figure out what happened and turned the water off. I will be contacting this company. Don’t buy this product under any circumstance.

  157. So we got the buy 1 get 1 free ad as seen on TV. After one week, the 100′ green hose exploded at the nozzle end. We called the company for instructions on returning this hose, which I really liked at first. That was two weeks ago… and still haven’t heard from them. Guess I’ll just have to take a loss on this one.

    • Should be cited with false advertising. I bought 2 and both blew within 10 days of purchase and minimal usage.

  158. I should have read all of the Flexable Hose reviews before I bought the pocket hose. Not a single good review. I cannot believe they are still selling this foreign made crap. BUYER BEWARE!!!!!

  159. I was watering my plants this morning and POP!!!! This supposedly unbeatable hose burst. I have only used it for two weeks. Would not recommend.

  160. Purchased 2 – 50ft and 1 25ft. Can not return the 2-50f. ALL WERE ABSOLUTELY TRASH

    Used 1 to 3 time before hoses would rupture. Patched with rubber electrical tape. After several uses and 13 ruptures. I lost over $40.00.

  161. I find the pocket hose to be a piece of crap. Everyone on my block had to throw them away. A total waste of my money. Purchased six of them and none of them held up, totally pissed off, lost money.

  162. Do not buy this hose. mine lasted one week and blew apart. the inside is surgical tubing in a cloth covering. no wonder they expand. it can’t take 45 lb water pressure even in a covering to hold it back. it’s already expanded and the walls are thin when you turn the water on…….useless…useless….useless. we should get a class action law suite and sue these people…..triple our money back.


  163. I purchased a total of 5 hoses. I think it is a good idea. However all 5 hoses soon as turned on the water all 5 hoses leaked immediately. I purchased all 5 hoses at Wal-Mart therefore I could buy and take them back. The other thing when I turned off the water the hose did not retraced. So when I see the commercials how the hose retracts to its original seize. No way. Also seeing a fireman in front of with his truck claiming a truck can drive over it, garbage. I called customer service he told me it must be bad batch (I immediately know that is their standard answer). I usually do not write reviews however this was so deceptive that had to write this review.

  164. I ordered a flex-able hose and received it on 3-26-13. My fault for not reviewing. 60 day warranty and now I know why. I had the hose under pressure and a sprayer on it for maybe an hour.. This was on June 12. the end of the hose blew off at the coupling.! Cheap piece of junk. when I called, of course I got someone from Pakistan who said yeah that was company policy. I guess he already knew he had another bad e-mail coming.

    I had also ordered an Xhose and when I had a problem with it they replaced it right away. I wanted to put a plug in for them! Make sure you get the right company not the green flex-able hose junk salesmen

  165. I thought I was the only one with “BAD LUCK”. I purchased my 2 hoses on April 24/13 for $59.93. I received the 2 about 4 weeks later. Thought that it was the greatest invention. I used the hose 4 times and it sprung a leak and also water started shooting from the black adapter attached to the water nozzle on the house. I called the company and they replaced the hose.They also provided me with a prepaid label. The second replacement hose arrived and broke after one use. It scared the heck out of me. I thought I was just shot. I heard a bang and a piece of the blue “balloon” inside the green hose hit my back. Called the company again and they said they would replace the hose but i had to send this one back. I opened up the second of the original hoses 3 days ago and today while watering my flowers, I felt the pressure stop and realized that the seam broke in the middle of the hose. I once again called and was provided a free mailing slip. The mailman just took it. I was going to order the “upgraded” model. Has anyone tried the BETTER hose yet???? I also contacted VISA to put my charge in dispute. I will be lugging the big heavy hoses again unless someone tells me that the upgraded hose is GREAT!

  166. 10 year warranty my foot, how can they advertise that when they have nowhere to report a claim? Gov’ts need to step in here…look at all the money these crooks have collected from us idiots. Yes, I bought one in May, loved it to start with, good concept, but yes again, china merchandise made cheap for other countries to get sucked in as usual. Mine leaks from all ends now.

    The only answer? STOP Buying ANYTHING MADE IN CHINA, or any other thing or letters they are using that represents CHINA, because they know we are catching on to their crap for cheap pay to workers.

  167. My hose has sprung a leak after only using about a month. Do I have any recourse.? I used gorilla glue and tape but it still seeps.

  168. I had my flex hose for two months during which time I used it sparingly, kept it in my garage and was careful not to stretch it or snag it. Today I attempted to use it and it sprung a leak. I attempted to reach customer service to see what recourse I had but there is no availability. Does anyone have an email address for customer service? The phone is just computer operated and set up for ordering only.

    With what I have experienced I would not recommend this product.

  169. Horrible. Leaked at both connections. First time using it, set it down on the ground to go and turn off the water and the open and close valve broke right off. Cheap plastic connectors. Don’t buy. There are better quality ones available for just a little more money.

  170. I just came in from trying to water the plants and while doing so I heard a rip. Turned to see the clear rubber part expanding outwards. By the time I got to the faucet to turn it off, the hose exploded. Piece of crap. Do not waste your money on this. Back to the old fashion hose.

  171. I purchased a flex hose at Wal Mart approximately 30 days ago. Yesterday when hosing of my walk it ruptured. So’ buyer beware.

  172. Purchased 4 hoses. 3 have sprung a leak after minimal use. Would not recommend this product to anyone.

  173. Garbage……hooked up the hose, turned on the water and the valve at the end of the hose (which is plastic) popped right off the hose. Don’t waste your money.

  174. WARNING …!!!! DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. After buying one about 4 weeks ago….. 5 to 8 holes burst at the same time…

  175. I purchased 2- 75 ft section of the hose the 14th of April 2013. Just opened them to June 3 , and tried to use one section. It had a leak and wouldn’t work. The other section does work . But wondering for how long. HOW can I get it replaced? Try finding a phone number But couldn’t find that.

  176. Well I bought the flex hose and I would say its completely garbage. On the commercials shows a steady stream but as soon as the pressure is built up the plastic connectors(spigot, head attachment) split. Yes the weight was awesome, didn’t kink just cheaply made had mine for a week or two before it completely crapped out on me.

  177. This product was an absolute failure. The first hose didn’t work because the coupling at the connection to the faucet was loose and the water came out there instead of the other end.

    The second hose was worse. The water dame out of the middle when I turned it on because something broke inside and the water came out of the cloth cover.
    I feel ripped off by this product and I think it should be investigated.

  178. A total waste of $19.95. It worked well for about a week and then leaked like a sieve. I would say purchase one if you can afford to buy one once a week.

  179. We bought one of these at our local Bed, Bath & Beyond (yes, the As-Seen-On-TV one, and while the hose itself was neat, the end plastic parts did not last. Our hose is already broke after about 2-3 weeks of use and has been dumped and the old standby is again being used. I wonder if there is a money-back guarantee on this?

  180. I bought two 50’sections and after two weeks use they would make good soakers. Leaks all along the seam. Where is the warranty??

  181. WOW. I keep reading the same thing from all these people. We had used our 1st hose about 3-4 times when it exploded. Husband had his back turned and thought he had been shot at. I usually read reviews b/4 being taken for over $95 but I sure missed on this one. just contacted my credit card to see if there’s anything I can do through them. Had the hoses for awhile before using them so 60 days is long gone. Just connected the 2nd one and will hold my breath everytime I use it. The other 2 short ones are still in the box.

    • I bought my hoses and didn’t even use them one week and one busted… RIP OFF!! is what I have to say. They would not replace anything back. Let this be a warning to you. Don’t buy!!

  182. I purchases a several of these hoses gave them to my kids I had mine for just one month and I only used it three times and it blew out where you hook it up to the hose bibb I think this product was never tested properly
    I will never buy another thing off the tv ever again

    • I bought a hose and as I was watering the plants I heard a loud pop like something has busted!!! I got the receipt out to call, they told me that there wasn’t any way they could replace them!! They were two 75 ft hose at $48. They should do what they say and they just won’t.

    • This is a joke they claim that you can do anything to that hose and it wont break. That’s funny, I laid mine down and it blew a hole out the side. And can you believe that I paid over $50 for my hose and they would not replace them and haven’t had them 30 days.

  183. After 4 uses of the hose it sprung 2 leaks. What a joke do not waste your money just another scam.

  184. Bought 1 50Ft Flexable Hose in March 2013 at K-mart in New York for $24.00, took it to Jamaica followed all instructions in the package, as I screwed it on my pipe turned on the water, the inner tube burst before I had a chance to used it, lost my money because I only got a 90 day warranty and I wont be going back to New York until September 2013. I will never buy another one.

  185. BUY A WATERING CAN INSTEAD! I bought two of these hoses. One sprung a leak out of the box, the other within one week of use. The only good thing about this hose is you can eventually use it as a drip system in the garden. It would be such a great product if it could survive longer than hours.

  186. I ordered the 100 foot and 50 foot hose each was offered to receive a free one of each. Ordered on March 28th, I received a card saying the order would be shipped on May 29th. I hope it’s worth waiting for!

  187. Buyer beware. I have purchased 3 hoses (2/50′ and 1/75′). The 75′ and one 50′ have blown-up when the nozzle was released into the off position. The 50′ hose blew off the fitting at the nozzle and hit me in the arm causing a minor contusion. The 75′ hose also blew at the nozzle and the hose split approximately 10 feet down the hose. So buyer beware.

  188. This hose is the biggest piece of junk!! I was so excited when I bought two of them, and after three weeks , they leak on both ends and it leaks when you put a sprayer on it. I would d rather struggle with a regular hose. Of course I have to wait to buy new hoses because I spent almost 45 dollars of my hard earned money on these crappy hoses. Now I see that their down to $14.99. Maybe the store is trying to get rid of them so they won’t have to eat em!!

  189. Thanks for the reviews. I was going to order a couple to use at my cabin, but with not even one positive review, I will go with a regular rubber hose from my local home improvement retailer. thanks everyone for your input and sorry for the wasted money you’ve had to deal with this piece of shit product.

  190. Well’ I only had my 75′ one month and it has sprang leaks. My husband was watering when it explored. When i seem the tv commercial I though it would have the stuff in it to protect like the fire truck running over it and no damage. I’m unhappy but I would like it replaced with the size I purchased. I also purchase the 50′ and have no problem.Please advise how to return and you replace it free. Thank you

  191. I bought the Flex-Able Hose 2-for-1 at 75 ft. Started using one of them about a month ago. Followed directions meticulously. After about a week I noted the hose had sprung a leak about 3 ft from the spray nozzle. used it daily for another week but got tired of being sprayed by the enlarging leak.

    Switched to the other 75 ft hose. I believe it was not more than a week of use when it snapped in half in my hand as I was gently repositioning the hose. the fracture was about 18 ft from the sprayer. Out of necessity I went back to using the hose with the leak. Not only did that leak continue to enlarge, the hose sprung a second leak farther down the length.

    These hoses were traversing concrete, not rough or jagged terrain. What a waste of money!

  192. Just read others reviews I bought the FLEX HOSE brand off the tv ad. Mine doesn’t leak and if you leave the sprayer open after turning water off mine drains all the way as I wrap it on the holder. Maybe the ones at Walmart are not the same hose.

  193. I bought a 50 foot flex hose and I love it. It expands and retracts just as shown. No more moving hoses to mow now. I am going to order two more!!

  194. THANK YOU!!! Thank you all for taking the time to write. We are on a severely limited income, and I had been literally saving pennies in a jar to get this and for my husband. We are retired and his garden is his pride and joy (next to me and the grand-kids lol.) You have no idea what your comments mean to someone who literally can’t afford to buy junk at this point in their lives.

    May all your gardens grow!!

  195. They do sell them in stores!! I bought mine at Walmart in Pennsylvania. I don’t have a Walmart close to me here in Michigan. I was so excited when I saw them at Walmart when I was on vacation. I bought one. I used it twice and it leaks terribly. Piece of junk. Do not buy!!

  196. I ordered (2) 75 ft Flexable Hoses. By the time I added the “extra strong” upgrade, and the “ship it faster” upgrade, I spent $74.90. A lot of money. However, I had high hopes for this hose as we just landscaped our yard and I was going to do a lot of hand watering. I received the hoses within about 2 weeks and have used the hoses now for less than 3 weeks. One of the hoses broke today…the “extra strong” hose simply pulled apart from the nozzle. I would’ve hoped that by spending so much money I’d get more than 3 weeks of use. It is lightweight, and does recoil (though not really all the way…but I was pleased) but clearly, the quality is crap. Do not waste your money.

  197. Bought two of the 75 footers (one supposedly free). By the time “Shipping and Handling” were added, I could have bought the best hoses in the world instead of these pieces of Junk. Sprayer is worth maybe $.25 cents. First hose worked OK, but second hose exploded the minute pressure built up. Scared the crap out of me: sounded like a gun shot. Ever try to catch a hose writhing its death throes on the ground? Save your money and get good hoses. Worthless and expensive.

  198. Don’t buy this hose, I made the mistake of buying 4 of them and one broke in my face and soaked me and the company says they do not sell them at the stores only online so no refund unless I take it back to the store. I am very disappointed they are supposed to be as tough as a fire hose as the commercial says but it sure isn’t. I guess I will keep taking it back and swapping it out for a new one so I have a lightweight hose to water with.

  199. Great hose as long as you don’t have too much water pressure according to the gal at Bed Bath and Beyond. If you think you might don’t turn the pressure on all the way. The hose has some great features.

    • Make sure you buy it at a nearby store in case you have to return it . Don’t but it on line . I recommend Bed Bath and Beyond because of their good return policy.

      • Have to agree with the Bed Bath and Beyond comment. If it doesn’t work they have a wonderful replacement policy. Also you ca see what you buying and the staff is wonderful. As Seen On TV, is another great store. That said I’ve only seen one at the Mall of American which I live by.

  200. Thanks to all the customers who gave their results using the flexible hose–Amazing I did not read one review giving a positive rating–I will continue to use my regular heavy hose & be happy I did not buy this piece of junk–

  201. Never got back to the original size after once used!!! After less than a months use sprang leaks all over the hose. Will never buy again……..

  202. I bought 2 hoses at Bed Bath Beyond after about 2 weeks one popped a hole , then about another 2 weeks the other one popped a hole. great idea but poor quality and you can’t get in touch with company.

  203. Don’t order Flexable Hose from this web site, they claim 3-4 weeks delivery, it took 9 weeks and one was broke.. I was disappointed with this web site.

  204. This Flexible Hose broke after a few uses. very disappointed. I didn’t use it right way when I received it. Less than ten uses before the outside and inside portion of the hose separated.

  205. 5/19/13

    I am joining the club, I was happy as well with the hose, until I had the end of my hose blow off too. We were cleaning some drywall equipment kept the water on, set the hose down to grab one of the pans to clean squeezed the handle and it blew off. Called this morning to see what they could do, and of coarse I was past my 60 days to get any kind of refund. Let alone it took a couple of months to even get the hose after I placed the order!!!

  206. After reading these reviews, it all makes sense. This is a good idea, so I could not understand why the infomercial is so insulting to my intelligence. Now I know why. Somebody could make a lot of money if they reverse engineered this and made one properly.

  207. Bought a 75′ hose and got one free. Not even two months old and today it peeled back by the nozzle and looked like a blue balloon and immediately blew up (sounded like a shot gun). Bruised wrist and leg. If a child had been holding it probably they would have suffered a broken bone. Wish I had my money back. Bought it with the idea that it would be light weight and easy to handle.

    • Piece of Crap. Lasted 2 weeks. Plastic couplings broke at the faucet after little use and movement of hose. DO NOT BUY THIS MISTAKE.

  208. I was given my flexable hose from my son about a little e less than a month ago.I love it and it helps so much rather than those big heavy hoses.Today I went out to water my flowers and the clip that turns it off and on broke.Now water goes everywhere!!I have left my number with cust service to find out if I can get a replacement…hope so.I have talked 4 of my neighbors into buying this and so far they also love theres.Wish me luck I hope I can get another one..it has made my life so much easier when it comes to my yard watering.

  209. I have purchased 3 of these hoses at Bed, Bath and Beyond…..two blew out second use and the 3rd one leaks around fittings. Plastic fittings are a problem and should be brass. Sorry scam item, but would be wonderful if they actually were perfected. Will be taking hoses back to store, where they are immediately replaced or refunded.

    I never order anything on TV ads…

  210. Bad Experience-Defective couplings & poor quality

    The hose itself is great. I was very pleased at how well it coiled back up and was so light. But here is the problem……the couplings at both ends of the hose leaked. At first I thought it was just not tight enough. This was not the case. After using the hose for a week or so the leaks became so bad I had to do something. Unfortunately I had too much confidence in the item and threw away the invoice ans receipt. I jury-rigged a repair which is holding but now the connector at the other end is spewing more water than the nozzle. This connection is not repairable so now the hose is useless. I tried to find repair parts but they are not available. So I guess I’m screwed. My advice is NOT to waste your money.

  211. Might want to check with B.B.B. before you order. SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD DEAL,until they fall a part and you can’t get your money back. CHEAP PIECE OF SHIT

  212. Bought a 50ft.hose,SECOND time it had water in it the END BLEW OFF. I had it stretched out NO kinks and turned water on and the CHEAPLY made end just popped off.

  213. I was going to purchase the flexable hose, but after reading all of the above, I guess I won’t waste my money. Thanks for the complaints.

  214. I was excited to finally see the hose in the stores. So I bought two Glad I did. The first hose after two uses came apart at he plastic end where the hose is attached. you can’t put it back on. So I cut the plastic that surrounds the hose and attached the hose after cutting off about two foot of the outer cover. and clamped it back on. seems to work ok. So I added the other hose to the coupling and after one use it leaked where the hose is attached. So I cut that coupler out and attached a barbed connector with clamps. make sure before you cut you use hemostats to hold the inside and outside cover together. otherwise the rubber hose will shrink back inside and you will have to remove the outer cover to where the inside rubber meets. What a pain. So I did all that turned on the water no leaks at the couplings, but then it sprang a leak in the middle of the hose for no reason. So I cut that part out and placed a barbed hose coupling with clamps and tapped the S–t out of it. no leaks as of yet but give it time. Good Idea but use better quality materials. I would like to see them make the hose in a larger diameter. Good Luck!!

  215. So excited could not wait to get it out of the box and I told my friend about it last week who just happened to be at my house when it arrived, so I connected it to my tape turned it on only to find it leaked really bad round the swivel neck part, boxed it up and went straight on to eBay onto the sight where I bought it told them it leaked really bad and within 5 minutes got a full refund no problem so all I can say is he must of had that many complaints he was just refunding without any question and when I asked him whether he wanted me to return it he just replied “Put it in the bin” and I think that is the best place for it very disappointed as the idea behind it is great.

  216. I have had my hose about 6 weeks it started leaking from hose bib, then it burst. I thought it was great at first but now I do not.

  217. I was ready to purchase two hoses, then looked at reviews and complaints, thank heavens I didn’t buy them. I love the internet.

  218. Last winter, I purchased two 50′ Flex-Able hoses from 129 Worthington Ridge, Berlin, Ct. This spring, I took one out of the box and started using it. Loved it! That is, until after about 2 weeks of use, it blew a hole in the middle of the hose and became worthless. I always left the hose without any water pressure, coiled up for the next time. So I am now using the 2nd hose. Hope it will last. But in the meantime, I would like you to replace the first, blown hose. I’m sure it was just a manufacturing defect.

    Please let me know how you intend to replace this product at

  219. This hose is a complete waste of money. It is quite simply poorly designed and of inferior quality. After one day of owning mine the ball valve broke. After only 3 weeks it had developed 4 holes. I finally threw the hose out and went back to my good ole rubber hose. I will never buy a Flexable Hose again.


  221. Don’t buy this hose! I spent the extra $10 on an a rugged version and it ruptured after only 5 months of usage. I called customer service and they literally told me that is why they only have a 2 month warranty. In essence, they don’t stand by the quality if the product. Also, the customer service rep didn’t want to hear anything except say 60 day warranty. What a scam!!!!! Don’t buy this hose!!

  222. Crappy quality and when you call customer service, they give you the runaround. I bought the upgraded version and it only lasted 5 months! Do not purchase this product; company doesn’t stand by its quality. You will be thoroughly disappointed. You’re better off buying a cheap hose at the local hardware store.

  223. Very disappointed that this hose just “blew Up” today after less than 6 months and probably less than 10 uses. When I called I was informed it only has a 60 day warranty. REALLY! Now I will make it my mission to inform people what a scam this is! Poor product, poor follow up, no one standing behind the product, told that no one will help me after the warranty period.

    Do not purchase this product…they do not stand behind it and it will not last….

  224. I will just enjoy Marissa’s look of total sexual satisfaction as she turns on her hose and watches it grow by the boat . all the while laughing at the guy in the background who keeps yelling “Tug Big Jim……..Tug!:…………what a waste of money on a POS hose. I would suggests purchasing a nice red Farm hose.

  225. Thanks for the reviews – saved me $19.99 PLUS! It sounds like a wonderful hose but the reviews sound like it doesn’t work.

  226. Love the idea, but agree with the others that the product is poorly made. Be prepared to get soaked! The nozzle couplings on both of mine leaked like a sieve despite trying several different nozzles. The shut-off coupling popped off on both. So far, have had no leaks in the hose itself, but have yet to stop the leaks at the coupling at the nozzle. To the good, it is light weight and doesn’t kink. The hose drains quickly and quick to store after use.

  227. The premise of this hose is wonderful 2 for the price of 1! Unfortunately, shortly after I received my hoses It sprung a leak. Ok, then I used the 2nd one, I’m sitting at my computer soaked to the skin because the second hose had an aneurism, blew up and the nozzle blew off. Not getting another one of these until they use better materials in them

  228. My husband & I bought 100 foot hoses at Beall’s on the same day not knowing the other already bought one. Well just to let you know both of them have burst. Not happy about paying 24.99 for each one and now they are both worthless.

  229. Good concept that works well – for about 5 uses. Then the hose loosens from the plastic coupling and water leaks around the side.

    Good concept + cheap plastic parts + poor assembly = Bad Quality

  230. Used my hose twice, during the second use it sprung a leak about a foot from the end. What a product!!

  231. Best idea ever. I loved this–no more dragging that heavy hose-That lasted 2 days before it sprung leaks at the connections–it has happened to most of the folks we know who got one. Improve this and you have a winner.

  232. What a piece of junk,save your money. They fall apart, have no return policy that they stand behind.

  233. First hose worked great second hose was broke interally.I didnt get second out of box until third month so they wouldnt replace after 60 days.So check both when you get them to avoid what happened to me.

  234. Was just looking at the sites to order this product. THANK YOU to the reviewers that helped me save my money.

  235. I ordered the 75′ hoses and they came without the shut-off valves which were shone on TV. I called to ask why they did not include them and they told me I could buy them at a hardware store. this is a case of false advertising. Also,the hoses seem to be very poorly made,I tried to use one of the hose and it appears to have a small leak in the center of the hose. It really dose not seem that it will last very long. By the way there seams that there is no warranty on the hoses.

  236. Do not buy this hose. You’ll get soaked at both ends. The reviews confirm my experience. The couplings at both ends leak profusely.

    • I agree with David I got mine for my shop and did not last 40 minutes and got soaked while washing the cars. The hose busted, got taken by the commercial. One thing they don’t tell you that the water can’t be on for a while or it will bust, so don’t waste your hard earn money on this junk and I did not get my money or another hose back.

  237. Ordered the 2 for 1 flexible hose, 100′. Stated it would be delivered in 7-10 days. Called and was old it was back ordered and wouldn’t arrive for close to 2 months. Asked why I didn’t receive an email telling me this, no response. Canceled order. Customer service rep was BARELY understandable.

  238. Just ANOTHER ‘THANK YOU’ from another person who thought it looks like a great idea and about to purchase-after reading the first handful of reviews AM NOT. Y’all saved me a bunch especially in wasted time!

    Still looks like a great idea, in need of more R & D before production..

  239. What a piece of junk. The water won’t flow past one foot from the spicket. When I called for a replacement they said it was over the refund period. I bought this in the winter to use this spring. Did they expect me to turn on my water in NH in February to test it. Needless to say they refused. These people are a big rip off. A legitimate place would have honored my request given my snow has just melted!

  240. Have bought 2 and both stated leaking in the same place after about a week. This hose is a sham. Its a good idea if it worked…. Burned twice and no more.


  242. Junk!!!!! Wonderful idea but absolute waste of money. After very light use in our small backyard greenhouse it looks more like a sprinkler. Sorry I got taken. I have other hoses that are still in use after years. This one didn’t make it 3 weeks – and they claim they drove trucks over it!!!!! Buy only at your own risk..

    • Don’t buy one of these, especially from anywhere except their site. We bought one from Home Depot, brought it home and the part by the connector was leaking due to a separation inside. Took it back, got another one. This seemed to work fine so we kept it, didn’t keep the receipt. 5 days later THIS one sprung a leak. Called the site due to not having the receipt, offered if they sent a shipping label to send it back for another one, they refused. I had heard they have a lifetime guarantee. They refused to help us because we didn’t buy it from their site. Way to stand behind your product Flexible Hose. So now unless Home Depot takes it without the receipt we’re out $20. Love the product, if it would last more than a few days.

  243. I purchased one of these hoses, and it initially worked very well. After about three weeks of use, it started leaking at the end that connected to the faucet. It seems that the valve at the end of the hose that can be shut down, created too much pressure, and caused the connecting end to leak which became increasingly worse. I just tossed it in the garbage can this morning.

  244. We are curious, you say the product is good for RV’s and boats but our question/comment is this…

    Your product and idea is wonderful and YES! most all boat and RV owners use a hose to rinse and clean with but how about for refilling potable water tanks? Will the FlexAble Hose give off a bad odor or taste in the potable water system? None of the reviews I’ve read touch on the subject, only the fact the hose lasts a very short time.

    Thing is, we take great care in filling our tanks with good, clean, fresh water so if out and away from home port this hose caused us to have to do a complete flush of the system due to an offensive odor and/or bad taste, that would be a huge headache and not worth my time or the money to purchase. I’ll wait for a better “mousetrap” or until the product is cleared for potable water tank filling.

  245. Thanks for all of the reviews. I was just getting ready to order a 100 ft. hose but now I will run, not walk, away from FlexAbleHose! Thank you all once again for sharing the information.

  246. Thank you so much to everyone who wrote comments! Was just about to order this, but not now! Thank you for saving me the money and weeks of “I told you so”s from my hubby.

  247. I bought 2 of the hoses (BOGO) and both came apart at the connection between the hose and coupling at the handle. Very cheap! Won’t buy again.

  248. This hose came apart (hose from plastic end) on the 2nd use! I bought it at walmart and didnt save receipt so unable to return it! Do NOT buy this peice of crap product!

    • Most Walmart stores will accept returns without a receipt as long as they sell the product at least ours does. Worth the try.

  249. I bought the pocket hose, looks exactly the same and it is more made in China junk !Could not get the faucet end to stop leaking and could not get the other end to accept a nozzle with out leaking.

    • Ball cock broke after three uses….was leaking really bad….would be careful in ordering this hose. Finally, nozzel “broke off” and now hose is about useless.

  250. Glad I saw these comments, was just getting ready to send in order.. but now I will cancel it.. I am NO fool

  251. Thank you for all the reviews. Didn’t take me long to realize this was not the purchase for me. You saved me many $$.

  252. This hose is complete GARBAGE!! Connector leaks! Hose split upon 3rd use! How has government consumer department not closed these crooks and fined them out of business? Does the company that makes this hose make any other “useless product?

  253. I bought a hose from you about 1 month ago. Today the hose started to leak from middle. What can I do?

    Elton Landi

  254. It’s a great idea but a poorly engineered product. After only 3 uses the seam split and the the end blew off. Don’t waste your money…

  255. I would comment on the pros and cons of this hose if I could actually get it shipped. I originally ordered this hose in February and now that it is April, I still have not seen it. They are trying to say its my “card” or it’s my “bank”. Even used the words “you have a bad bank”…really? Also, the “supervisor” was the rudest one of all. He even stated “why should I have to apologize to you? It’s not my fault your card doesn’t work.” WOW. Couldn’t believe it! Even after having multiple discussions with my so called “bad bank” we still cannot figure out as to why the transaction will not go through. It would be nice if the company cared enough about their customers to try and help but, doesn’t look like that is going to happen any time soon.

  256. Bought a 50′ flex which lasted 30 minutes before springing 2 leaks. I am returning it to Walmart where I bought it 2 days ago. Nice marketing for the Telebrands company, but I hope it backfires by everyone to stop buying ANY products from this rip off company

  257. The first time we tried to use our Flexible hose it split open. It is a waste of money and overall is crap.

  258. This hose is a piece of junk. We bought one, received the other free. Neither one has ever worked! Unfortunately, we had them awhile before trying to use them, so we can’t return them. We found out that the inside of the hose doesn’t even go all the way down. In other words, the cloth cover is all there is. Doesn’t being to hold water! What a joke! It leaks all the way down the hose. Please don’t buy from this company. Get one at WalMart where you can return it if it doesn’t work properly. This company is for the birds!

    • I bought the 50″ at Walmart for $19.95. I had not had the hose on for more than 5 minutes and it sprang a leak near the nozzle. Turned it off and did not use it again till the next day. Turned it on and now it was a soaker hose spray leaks everywhere. Sure glad I bought it at Walmart, today I return it. Also the main water valve from the house could not be left on like with a regular rubber hose. Each time I had to walk around the house to turn it on and then back to turn it off. Don’t buy from website or As Seen On TV you will be disappointed.

  259. Pure junk, my new 75 ft. flex able hose ruptured in two places in only its second use. It was never dragged over any rough terrain–just grass and walkway cement. The nozzle pressure is only 2/3 of a normal hose, because the walls of the flex able hose are so weak.

  260. I too bought into the whole idea of a lightweight flexable water hose for about a year. Within a year and two weeks of each other, one completely disintegrated and the other started springing leaks! Don’t be fooled !

  261. The hose worked as advertised for a couple of weeks then started leaking big time at the faucet connection making it unusable.

  262. Purchased hose recently. Hooked it to the water faucet for the first time. Turned water on and it leaked at the area where the green hose material connects to the plastic connector. Called customer service, presented my problem- they put me on hold, and never returned. It is a scam.

  263. Bad, bad. Received two of them, one busted immediately, could not get a hold of anyone and when I did they all lied to me about my replacement was on the way.

  264. I am disgusted! My poor elderly mother called to order the hoses and clearly told them she didn’t want anything OTHER than the hoses. She lives on a fixed income and when she checked her balance before purchasing her medications she realized she was short. After investigation, we found the flexable hose company added magazine subscriptions using her credit card! Now, thankfully, her credit card company is assisting in getting these cancelled and credited back to her. As far as I’m concerned this company are stealing from people and have no business operating!

  265. I purchased one of these, it began to leak after about a week. Was disappointed because I liked the idea and it didn’t knot up or twist so as a surprise my wife bought me another….. 2 weeks later… leaking to the point that it was unusable.

    Product is a good idea but obviously there was no product testing done. DO NOT BUY THIS…..

  266. I purchased the amazing Flexable hose at Wal-mart. One month later it has 3 leaks. When I contact the company they tell me ,they could not replace it or give me my Money back. I was amazed. I got ripped off.


    SAVE YOUR MONEY. even if the guarantee it you are out the shipping and handling which comes to more then the hoses.

  268. This is such a scam..and should be a class action lawsuit..I wanted the $29.95 hose with a free hose and was charged $39.99 for two hoses..plus $54 in shipping and handling..plus having to put up with the fact that you never speak to a real person, and they try to sell you everything from magazines to cruises, and tours to islands. I called the number they gave to try to cancel after reading the reviews here, and again it tried to sell me something..I tried again and the number was no longer in service. I contacted Am. Ex. about this scam and they are assisting me, but I am worried about getting all the junk mail, and the fact that some people were signed up for tours and trips they didn’t authorize. In the meantime, my husband went out and bought a regular hose..the people who have gotten them are not satisfied, and there is no warranty that is honored…so why don’t you just buy your own hose?

    • The same happened to me today when I tried to order it. I only wanted the one 25 foot hose and it did not give me an option not to get just one I had to get the second one with the extra shipping cost, then after saying zero to the order of 75 foot hose it added it anyway, so my account got charged over 100 dollars. When I called them to cancel they told me that the order is not available. On top of everything else they ran my card as debit because I bet you they know that visa stands behind the orders placed as credit. Well they have an other thing coming, I’m contacting the BBB and I having my bank put the money back and go after them. I will never call one of those places again.

  269. I purchased these in November and just took it out of the box on Monday April 1st, it worked fine, then I went to use 6 days later and it is defective, the water squirts every where. I called to tell the company of this defect and was informed that there is a 60 day warranty only which I cannot find that listed anywhere. I do not recommend this product!

  270. Horrible product. If you paid with an AMEX you can dispute the charge and get a full refund. You can also use the purchase protection benefit (free of charge) for a refund if your purchase is over 90 days old. So glad my credit card company took care of me- I didn’t have to deal with the merchant at all.

  271. I have bought 3 of these hoses an had to carry all 3 back cause they bust as soon as you turn the water on,an you talk about disappointed I was very disappointed an I ended up getting a different kind of hose…I dont recommend this Flex hose at all,They need to be taken off the Shelves…

  272. I bought one of your FlexAble Hoses at Stage Dept. Store, in Springhill, LA, for Valentine’s Day for my husband.

    We are not happy with this hose as it does not do what your advertisements say it will do.

    I paid $19.95 plus tax and feel that my money was wasted, especially as this was a gift for my husband.

    I think you owe me a refund. This hose is a piece of junk.

  273. This place is a SCAM…When ordering, they kept trying to sell me on various cruise ships..vacation, magazines, you name it..and online there is no way to say no..or stop it. Then after reading the above I decided to cancel my order, and you can’t even get them on the phone..if you do, they try to sell you on a vacation order. I am going to tell my bank to cancel my order..or dispute the charge..!DON’T FALL FOR THIS!

    • Here is the phone number I got for customer service in case you need it. It will not get you very far, but at least you will have some record of speaking to a person. 1-973-287-5160 I hope that everyone on this list that had a problem made a complained at the BBB, I will.

  274. Thank you all for your comments. My wife just bought one at Wal-Mart and it is going back unopened. I didn’t even THINK of the impact the water in this could have on living things until one of you mentioned the warnings on the packaging. I have never seen such an overwhelmingly negative set of comments on ANY product I have researched before buying. WOW!

    • P.S.
      Hey Jerry A…… You MUST have some interest in the company/product since you are the only one who loves it, vs the hundreds who say… DO NOT go there.
      Come on Jerry!!!

  275. I ordered 2 (75) foot hoses and had one spring a leak. I complained to the company by phone, BIG TIME ! The company representative was very understanding and offered me the option of getting my money back AND THEY would email me or send me a return label OR send me a NEW 75′ Flex Hose. I chose the new hose because they are perfect watering my indoor plants ! !

    I just received my replacement hose (one week wait) and when I opened the box, I FOUND TWO 75′ HOSES INSTEAD OF JUST ONE REPLACEMENT ! ! ! !
    I’m very pleased with the outcome and thought I would let you know. Jerome Arasim

    How could ANYONE NOT ORDED a FLEX ABLE HOSE from this company ? ?


    • And when my 75 foot ($69.99) Flexable hose burst the company representative told me that the 90 days had passed, (by 8 days). So I got no refund, no replacement, just lip service. This company does not stand behind its product. Do Not Purchase this Flexable hose.

  276. DON’T BUY THIS HOSE!!!!

    I upgraded and bought 2 heavy duty hoses, which cost $80.00 with shipping. Loved it….but after 5-6 uses, one of the hoses exploded. The company was unwilling to help in anyway, other than replace it for $69.99!!!

    They have a 60 day return policy, and I had purchased the hose in Dec, but never used it until spring, so I was out of luck with the warranty.
    Great idea, HORRIBLE design!

  277. I had the identical experience as many, probably what bothered me most was the tremendous amount of junk email I immediately began to receive since buying this product.

  278. DO NOT BUY this sorry excuse for a product…nothing but a scam. Bought 2 hoses in November 2012. Waited until Christmas to open them. Both are worthless after 30 days…with maybe 3-4 uses each. Beyond my 60 day warranty period. What a piece of junk…wish I would have researched first.

  279. Thanks,

    After reading the review, I wouldn’t buy one of these until I saw the Pope advertising it, and then I’d wonder if it was a good product. Their TV commercial is very seductive.

  280. Ordered their so called , buy 1 get 1 free for $19.95 plus $7.99 shipping, was billed $205.00 and got 6 hoses. 2 at 25 feet, 2 at 50 and 2 at 75. Even if I wanted all them it would not add up to this as each size is supposed to be buy 1 get 1.
    Oh and the bigger the hose the higher the cost and the higher the shipping.

    25 footers 2 for $19.95 plus shipping of $7.99 plus $7.99
    50 footers 2 for $29.95 plus shipping of $8.99 plus $8.99
    75 footers 2 for $39.95 plus shipping of $9.99 plus $9.99

    Best I can come close to for their charges of $205.00 is I was charged for every hose except one 50 footer.
    So charged for 5 hoses and 6 shipping fees


  281. I ordered two 75 foot hoses in December as Christmas presents. We really loved them until one literally split about half way down the hose, approximately 62 days after we began using it. I called their customer service number (reaching some foreign country, of course) to be told that the 60-day money back guarantee is over. I told them I don’t want my money back, I want the hose replaced. Nope, beyond the 60 days, you are out of luck. Please let me speak to a supervisor – who read the exact same script, exact same wording in the exact same barely understandable accent. ARGH. So, I have told many friends and family how happy I was with the hoses, I am changing my stance. The product will literally last a few days beyond the warranty, then fail. Cheap garbage manufactured someplace outside of the states, with horrible customer service (visions of Dell computers???). I just decided I would find every website that asks for reviews and get the word out that these are not worth your time or money or frustration.

  282. What a rip off…the product is $19.95, BUT; s/h is $15.98 add priority for another $4.99…isn’t that more than the product. Just forget the 2 for 1 with that math. PLUS, the priority took 10 days.

  283. I was impressed with the ad due to its length and flexibility and easy storage. I have not used it as yet and after reading reviews I am discouraged to try. Have you read most importantly this hose may not be used for portable water use to supply drinking water and as a outdoor hose it may be exposed to conditions that can be hazardous to human health? That questions our reasons to order this hose! What about the bird baths and pet water bowls gardens for vegetables we consume? I believe a reimbursement is warranted for all of us and this faulty hose should be taken off the market I will be contacting Consumer Product Safety Commission and hopefully someone in authority will ban this item from being sold! Lets all make some phone calls!

    • Contacting the Product Safety Commission is a must with statements like that. Please keep this board updated with their review.


  284. This company scammed me by sending 6 times the hoses I ordered and charged my credit card $350.00. I have contacted them by phone and by letter since Jan. 2013 and have not received a refund.

    They also signed me up for clubs and services I did not request.

  285. I ordered this hose, buy one, get one free, and when I arrived at the final page instead of one set, there were two, plus of course all the extra S&H, so instead of $34.90 and I was charged double. I tried going back to the original page to correct this and it would not allow me to do that.

    I then tried calling the company to change the order, but it was after office hrs. approx. 10:00 PM EST. Not only that the website stated I COULD NOT CALL ABOUT THE ORDER FOR AT LEAST 6 hrs. after it was placed. I think this is purposeful, in that when I did call this morning it was “too late” to change the order.. The six hour time lapse would ALWAYS give them the opportunity to say “your order has been shipped”.

    First of all I feel the buyer should have the opportunity to return to the ordering page should the order have a mistake in it or, at the very least, be able to contact someone immediately about the problem. I feel this borders on a scam.

    • I had a very similar situation with the Forever Comfy seat pillow which I thought would be great and should have read the reviews first but didn’t – I immediately wanted to cancel as it order me 4 pillows with double the shipping etc etc – of course it couldn’t be stopped!! I was told to refuse the delivery which is what I did – do not open the package and take back to the PO – wants they receive it back they are legally required to credit me the purchase price – we’ll see.

  286. I just received my two FLEX-ABLE 75 foot hoses in the mail yesterday. When I connected the first one it expanded like it was advertised and I was watering my inside house plants with it. AFTER using the hose for maybe five minutes my wife cried out to say the hose was coming apart and a blue colored “balloon like tube” suddenly appeared where the green mesh was joined in the middle of the hose length. It expanded to about 3 inches in diameter in that spot and exploded inside the house, before I could turn the water off! I will call the company to see if they will send me two replacements free? I’m afraid to try the second one I have. I will keep you posted on how the distributor handled my messy wet problem.

    • I purchased 3 Flex-Able Hoses in Dec 2012 which arrived under the name of X-Hose and they too have exploded. The idea is incredible but this product is terrible. I have called Customer Service at Flex-Able Hose on two different numbers and each time they refused to get their supervisor, take my complaint or have anyone call me back saying they are unable to do any of those requests.

      The best thing we all can do is to contact the Better Business Bureau because Flex-Able Hose seems to have different names at different times and does not back up their product. My fault I fell for the scam.

    • I will tell you how the distributor told me. He said the hoses are guaranteed for 60 days, and asked me if I wanted to place a new order. Yea, right.

  287. Glad I checked reviews I almost fell for it. I’ve bought the extension power surge protectors from TV and they are wonderful. A mistake was made on my order and when when I called they changed the order took it off of my card and told me to keep the 2 that I did not order at no cost. Seems these hoses are truly a scam and there is no way I would wait months for any product….thanks for everyone being clear on all aspects of this “product”

  288. I ordered 2 75′ hoses. At first I was told it would be 4 – 6 weeks, they did not come, I called and was told they were on back order because of the overwhelming orders. We finally did get them and was really excited to try them. The very first time we used one, we just dropped the nozzle and it broke. We got another one from a store in town. While we were on vacation and washing our camper (by this time we had used this one hose about 4 times), the hose busted right where there was a seam that we had not noticed before. I thought it was all one piece. I HIGHLY recommend NEVER to order anything from “AS SEEN ON TV”. We had a problem with another item we ordered. NEVER AGAIN!!!!

  289. I bought a flex hose and it came on time in perfect working condition. I love my hose, it works exactly as advertized. It’s the best buy I have ever made.

  290. I agree that this is a piece of junk. It leaks where it connects to the nozzle and after 1 use developed 2 holes. DO NOT BUY!

  291. I ordered a 50 foot hose from this Company over their web site in January.

    Buy one get 1 free was the offer.

    They stated it might take 4 to 6 weeks to get the hoses. OK no problem.

    By March 7th I began to wonder where my order was . I called the service center. Was told my order was shipped on the 28Th of February. By now they had charged my account.

    I called again and asked them to put a tracer on the order, and let me know via e-mail. they never did.

    I called again and told them to refund my money or send me the product again.

    I got my money back but would like to have received the hoses.

    They have a very poor service department. Promised to follow up and get back to me, never did. This was with two reps. a guy and a woman.

  292. I am wondering if all these reviews are for the Flexable hose Brand or just flexible hoses in general. There are several different names out there that sell this same type of hose.

    I know a few people who purchased this type of hose and love them. I am not sure what brand they purchased.
    Are we getting the reviews confused.

    Just wondering because I am very interested in this type of hose but want to be sure I purchase a good one.

    • Mine is Flexible Hose from Berlin, CT 06037. Not so happy with their Customer Service Dept. They promised to send me an invoice and a shipping label to return all the hoses I did not order.

      That was early Jan. and not yet.

  293. Hi,I purchased my flexables hoses on November 10th of 2012,my husband wanted me to purchase 2-50 ft hoses for our house and 1-50 ft hose for my mother who loves to work in her yard and she’s 88yrs old,so we felt this would help her because a regular hose is so heavy for her to reel back up.

    I received a notice in the mail,to please excuse the delay,but they expected to ship my order by December 27,2012,that they were temporarily out of stock and they expected them in,in about 30 days and if I did not want to wait I could send the card back and my order would be cancelled,but my husband said let’s go ahead and wait we’ve waited all this time,so we waited.

    I received a second notice in the mail stating that the hoses were still out of stock and it would be January 17,2013 when my order will ship and pretty much the same thing I may cancel my order,but again my husband said let’s just wait because we’ve waited thus far and we would not be using the hoses until early spring so we waited.

    On March 1,2013 we received our hoses but we only received 2,not 3.But We were charged for 2 and got 1 free but we had to pay the shipping for the free 1,so my credit card was charged $79 for the 3 hoses,so I called the 1-973-287-5160 number and spoke to Gary who told me that I would be getting a email confirmation in about 2 hours to let me know my order have been shipped but I never received an email,so I waited and called again on March 7,2013 and I spoke with And and he assured me that I would receive my 50 ft hose soon but he would have to speak with his supervisor and I told him that I’ll hold while he spoke with his supervisor,because I needed to know because if they were not going to send my hose that I paid shipping on that I was going to send the 2 that I have back and I wanted a full refund.

    I was on hold for about 2 or 3 minutes and he came back and said his supervisor said that my order was at the top of the list and it will be shipped in a week or two and they were sorry for the inconvenience.

    Today, March 21,2013 I called again to check the status of my hose and spoke with Monique#2015 and she stated that my hose was shipped on March 17,2013,So maybe I’ll be getting my third hose and I hope that they will last at least a year and I will never order stuff like this on line again.I’ll wait until they come to my local Walmart and Dollar General Store because even tho they state on tv that they are not sold in stores, they are always found in some stores so next time I am going to wait.

    • Not concerned about your order problems, but would much rather have a write up on the quality and actual benefits of having this hose and if there were any problems.

    • I checked the reviews first and am so glad I did! WOW way to many issues. I am sorry you guys had to go through all the bull to get this product just to have it break. I think I will just go down to home depot and buy a hose from there garden center. Thank you all for taking the time to warn us about this faulty product.


  294. After calling a number of times, I finally reached someone in Jamaica and was told that my hose would shipped in two months. It has already been two months since my order and now they say two more months. I tried to cancel the order but was given a run around about back orders and it not being their problem. Called my credit card and had the card cancelled and a new one issued which the credit card company said was the best way to be sure you prevent fraud since they would not cancel my order. Do not deal with this company.

  295. My mother tried to place an order in October, 2011 for one hose. The representative kept trying to sell her product she did not want. She finally hung up and I called back to place the order for her. I specifically told the representative what had just occurred with my mother and specifically asked them to check to make sure an order did not go through. They assured me it did not. Our order for one hose was delivered. Several weeks later we received three boxes of hoses (25′, 50′, 75′) which we did not order. I have been on the phone with this company since December, have spoken with 5 supervisors and they have still not credited our account for the full charge. They have withheld $54 for shipping. Shipping charges for something we did not order.

  296. I happened to catch the flexable hose infomercial this am. So immediately I looked for more info. It is a shame that folks don’t mind victimizing consumers by getting expectations up (on a product that supposedly resolves an issue), and taking us for suckers.

    May they experience a thousand times the disappointment that they have caused and may they know that it is payback they are experiencing.

    Thank you all for communicating your experiences with the company and it’s product. They won’t be disappointing any of us who respect your comments.

  297. Thanks everyone for your reviews. I was suspect about getting 2 hoses for the price of one at $19.95. The old adage If It Sounds Too Good To Be True, It Probably Is still works. I’ll be buying the old rubber hose; heavy but durable. Thanks again for sharing your experiences.

  298. I am a home refurbisher, real estate agent, and business man. No one I will will ever speak to (and I will make a point of it) will be directed to this website. Sucks to be ya’ll.

      • Walt, didn’t you know Bob’s a big deal? Thanks for the reviews all, was considering the house but not now.

    • Your hose is junk and worthless but you know that you are just a sorry s o b running a scam stealing money and one step ahead of the law hopefully not for much longer.

  299. Today, after reading these letters, I called my bank and asked them to refuse the charge to my Visa card. The charge went through on Feb. 28, 2013 and as of today, March 15, 2013, I have received nothing. On top of that, when I checked the status of my order at their website, it said “shipped 2/28/13”! The invoice gives a phone number to call to discuss the order, so when I called, they put me on hold. The recorded number kept saying “3 more minutes” then “2 more minutes” then disconnected! That happened over and over. That is when I determined I had been scammed and called my bank and refused the charge. Walmart has plenty of these things in stock, don’t know why I did not just buy one there!

  300. After 2 months of waiting I give up on them. I get a lot of magazines in the mail. Everyone has one of those flexable hoses in there for sale’. I just received a 100 foot hose ,exactly like the flexable hose. It took just about 2 weeks to get it. Shame on you.

  301. Why is it taking so long for me to recieve this product. It’s been 2 months now since I put my order in. I’ve bought another hose, the same as I ordered from you

  302. Hose sprung a leak after 120 days (and not even using it every day). Found out it was past the 60 day return and no way to patch the hose. Very poor customer service.

  303. I ordered 4 hoses from FlexableHoseOffer.com. That was Feb. 21, 2013, Today is March 14, 2013. So, I called to find out where my shipment is and they said they are back ordered. I asked when can I receive my order and they said they were expecting a shipment in 3 weeks. I then asked when after that can I expect to receive my shipment, their response was another 10 working days (2 weeks). Walgreens down the street from my home has them in stock right now. So, you know what I recommend. Do not buy on line, go to your local store and pick one up.

  304. I ordered the “buy one get one free” deal on these. That was back on January 10th, 2013, and today they are still not here. I am beginning to think I’ve been scammed. They charged my debit card already of course. I think this may be a good class action lawsuit. I am lawyer and may just look into this soon if I don’t get some results pronto. If the hoses are crap, that could be a good class action lawsuit too. Does anyone know the actual manufacturer (I’m assuming China), as well as the main distributor in the USA? If I ran my business this way I would be broke within 30 days.

    • I think the slow shipping is do to Walmart and Walgreens having a great inventory of this product.

      Go to walmart and get one…..or two….with what you save on shipping it is about the same price. You can purchase a 50 foot, that all they carry for $19.95.

      It is an awesome product……especially if you have any kind of hand or back pain and the weight of a standard rubber hose is hard to deal with.

    • I agree I think this should become a class action lawsuit.

      I get tired of these companies getting away with this stuff.

      I had to order a part for my G.E. Microwave. A plastic Grill piece.

      G.E. wanted $125.00 plus shipping for the part. I only paid about $160.00 for the unit.

      I did find one for about $72.00 including shipping. But this is the type of problems we as consumers are having with many companies with there replacement parts. A BIG RIPOFF

  305. For heaven sake people….STOP buying these things on the phone or on the web. Like everything else, you will find them in the stores in quick order. That way if its a total piece of crap you take it back! Save yourself all of this turmoil and keep the buyer protection on your side.

  306. Thank you all for the honest Flex-able hose reviews, almost just spent 74 dollars that will be better spent on a real hose that will last. Thanks again.

  307. The idea is awesome BUT BEWARE the hose is terrible. One hose broke right away – waiting 4 months for the replacement and they will not refund you.

  308. I bought flexable Hose from Indiana at The Covered Bridge Festival, it only worked 4 times then started leaking around the nozzle and unlike a regular hose I could not change the nozzle. I had the 100 ft hose. I figured what a rip off and just thrown it away.My advice don’t buy it but if you did don’t throw it away,return it and get some of your money back.

  309. I received my hose 2 days ago and it works perfectly as advertised, in fact I love it so much that I am now going to order the 75″ hose for my lawn and garden

  310. I ordered a flexable hose 30 days ago, I called to check on the order and received no satisfaction. I was told it will be shipped when the product comes into them – no date-no time frame. At the same time I ordered the “pocket hose” and received it within 3 weeks. I would not recommend doing business with flexable hose if you ever want to get your product!

  311. Right this minute I would tell everyone that this is a scam and to stay away. I have waited patiently for the delivery of my hoses. When they didn’t come, I contacted the only site available for status, and after the agent put me on hold twice while looking for my information, she finally told me that she was told that I would receive my order on March 3, 2013.

    That was three days ago. I, today, called again, and this time I was transferred to India and spoke with “Walter” who told me that my order is now back-ordered. He could not give me a delivery date. He assured me that he has placed my order at the “top of the list” at no additional charge, and he is sure it will be shipped in three or four weeks.

    Now tell me, is this a scam or not? Local stores around here seem to have no problem in getting them and have them on their shelves. I wouldn’t buy one, because I already have my order in. If I had bought theirs, I would be using them now. Again, is this a scam? I feel that I will not get a reply, that this is probably a stalling tactic, but I will wait to see if anything shows up in my inbox. Very Dissatisfied!

  312. My wife ordered 2 75ft. Flex-able Hoses on 12/19. We received them in time for Christmas, the price was 59.97, half was Shipping and Handling. Now on 2/25, another company, Pocket Hose has charged my 70.97 for the same order. We never ordered a Pocket hose. That company bought Flexable hose. They sent the hoses, but I don’t want the double order. Now I have to pay to ship them back. They were not very easy to work with at all.

    However, what I will be doing is lodging a complaint against the company and getting my bank to reverse the charges on a fraud charge.

    • Jim, if a company sends you merchandise that you did not order, you are not required to send it back nor are you required to pay for it.

      Take a look a this article of the Federal Trade Commission


  313. Purchased this product about a year and a half ago. 1st problem I had with it was the coupling cracked. They did replace it because it was within the 50 day warranty window. I’ve only used it 4 or 5 times total. Today when I used it it split the seam about 5 ft long along the hose. If its as strong as they claim, this should never have happened. When I stored the hose I always dried it out and stored it in a covered container. Would I recommend this product, the answer is NO! The money I paid for the hose doesn’t really matter, its the claims the company makes for this product that bothers me. Again a product advertised on tv has failed its claims. Finally I did call the company and complained about the products longevity, but was told product was out of warranty and there was nothing they could do. So much for a company backing up there product. Finally buyer beware.

    K I Keehn

    • I sure am glad I have read the reviews before ordering…almost ordered last week until I saw the process & handling charges…almost as much as the hose. Sure looks good in the commercials..but apparently is junk…thanks for the reviews.

    • JIm, if a company sends you merchandise that you did not order, you are not required to send it back nor are you required to pay for it.

      Take a look a this article of the Federal Trade Commission


  314. Originally ordered the hose in December 2012. USPS lost it for 30 days and returned it. The company gave me credit for the hose but not the freight. I called and am waiting for a credit to appear on my account.

    I ordered again in January, and received them today March 5, 60 days after the hose.

    Opened one of the two packages, followed the instructions and the hose has two large leaks in it. I did not bother to open the second package and will pack them up and return.

    There is definitely something wrong with this product/company.

  315. I bought this hose and am underwhelmed to say the least! It broke on me a few months after I got it and used it only 3 times! I asked for a replacement and got the runaround! It is light weight and is flexible. The cost is much more than intimated and quality is poor! I will never recommend this to anyone! The only people that answer the “customer service” phone are from other countries and read from a card or something as they keep repeating everything. Don’t buy this junk, spend a little more and learn to roll your real hose up, you’ll be better off!

  316. My girlfriend bought a 75′ Flex-Able Hose and the second time she used it the hose developed several leaks. This hose is junk!!

  317. It’s not a scam, it was just real cheap material used and they have an influx of returns.The company just sold on Friday to another company that buys lots that can’t handle immediate flow.

    They are discontinuing the hose til Oct. 2013 ( not yet confirmed on the date) once the courts okay the purchase. 80% they will file out and you loose your money. I’m right along with you. Wall Street on line article March 1, 2013.

  318. I ordered the Flex-able hose on Jan 28 and still have not received the order. They said 2-3 weeks and I am concerned this may be a scam. They have a status page, but it does not update, just says in process, this status has not changed in over a month.

    • Thanks all for the honest reviews. I could really use something like this hose but obviously this is a scams so I won’t bother ordering. I hope somebody will come up with one of these that really works and isn’t a scam.

      Suggestion: use PayPal and get shipping charges BEFORE you submit your order on any of these TV promotions.

  319. I ordered 2 Flex-able hoses 75′ rough terrain on Feb. 17 and just got an email telling me that supply is low, demand is high, and it will be at least 6-8 weeks before I see them. Worst part is that this gave me time to read 123 reviews, 121 of which were negative, everything from “I never received the hoses I ordered and paid for” to “the hose broke in half after 63 days.” I am in the process of trying to cancel my order before it is shipped. Wish me luck. I have learned my lesson…always read reviews before ordering ANYTHING. I agree with the person who commented that if a product is really good, it will sell in stores where customers can see and touch it before ordering!

  320. I ordered flex-able hose rough terrain 75′ last Feb 4, 2013 my order number 9524588. I am wait for them and nothing. I am disappointed.

  321. Thanks for all the reviews, they saved me from wasting time, money, and frustration having to deal with these scammers…maybe they should call it a DISPOSE-ABLE Flexi-hose—-never mind—it sounds like it doesn’t last THAT long.

  322. no -reply@flexablehoseoffer.com, tried to cancel my order because of shipping chargers, they charge you $7.99 for each hose which came to $37.96. The woman told me it takes 24 hrs. to get an email because its automated. They don’t give you a return address. When talking to a man & explained the shipping charges he then wanted to give me $30.00 off shipping. When I said send me to that affect, he said I would wait until I received the items. No Thanks

  323. Ordered my hoses on 1/16/2013 and as of 2/26/13 have not received my hoses. Credit card was debited and customer care tells me it will be another two weeks. Not happy!!

  324. My order has not been received but has been shipped (Feb 21st). I think this is a HUGE SCAM AKA A RIP OFF AS YOU CHARGED $53.94 P&H for my order of 3 hoses and nozzles. When I ordered, I noticed there was $20.00 off the order but I failed to click that box before I submitted. I have tried many times to call your customer service phone number 1-973-287-5160 and am informed that is not a good number. MY ORDER #: 21524-2013-05262-113

    I will not be passing information to friends as this is abominable…AND, I cannot even get through to get a Return #. Thanks for nothing.

    • Everyone that ordered one of these and had problems, take my advice and call your credit card company or contact paypal and contest the charge. You will have no problem getting your money back. This is a rip off!!

  325. Don’t you lemmings see why there are scams out there? It’s because you all are so dumb!! You fell for it, shame on you! You should all be asking yourselves why you are so dumb! Why do you believe in things so easily?? You must all have way too much money…like you really needed another piece of junk in your lives…

    • Patrick K…This is not a gossip/chat board. You are certainly a miserable coward to actually insult people on an Internet review board. I’m sure you have some issues, but stop wasting people’s time and get some help. Wow!

      • After reading every post on this board there were only 2 positive reviews! I think the lesson here is that if a product is so great it would not be sold primarily or entirely via TV or Internet. When buying anything over the phone be sure to get all of the sale tech’s info. If you are charged to much or the product is not up to your expectations cancel the order through your credit card company(never make a like purchase w/o a major CC).

        Again, a legitimate good idea for a product such as this would be patented, manufactured, distributed, and sold at department stores. These “scams” use A.S.O.T.V. and Internet sales to make $ quick, and get out. If you have been ripped off, do not give up easily. These companies also give money back guarantees in the hopes that customers will not take the time to get small amount of money back. Keep complaining(the squeaky wheel gets the greasing). “As seen on TV” should be replaced with “poorly made”. One should know that these infomercials pray on the lower class. I noticed a lot of reviews that showed concern with having wasted or spent SO MUCH money. If losing $50-$100 is going to truly affect you, for god sake, stop buying things on TV or the Internet. There’s really no need for me to potentially insult anyone, but too many spend $ irresponsibly and it cost all of us.

  326. Hose broke in half 63 days after purchase. You can guess the response. They are well aware that all hoses last between 60 and 90 days. SCAM!!!!!

  327. Thanks for posting these reviews. I was just about to click the order button when I decided to check the reviews. These reviews just saved me a lot of money and headache.

  328. Don’t waste your money. The idea is great but the hose is so poorly made it was only two weeks before it started leaking. Junk!!!

  329. I bought two 75 foot hoses (1 free) a few months ago. First, I yanked on the hose and the connector broke off the end. The second hose, both connectors leak. I tried new washers but it did no good, they still leak. Also, the shipping cost was way too high. At first, I thought the hoses were great. I ran them to my barn for the horse and brought them in every night to keep them from freezing. It was a complete waste of money!!

  330. I just called 1-973-287-5160 and cancelled my $111.09 order. Will call my credit card company to make sure it has been canceled. This company is a fraud. DO NOT ORDER.

  331. Thanks for posting the reviews. I always check before I buy something like this and the reviews really help make my decision NOT to but this.

  332. Thanks for the Flexable Hose reviews. I plan to cancel my order. I ordered once and they charged my card, and indicated the order was refused (it wasn’t). They did issue a credit, shock!!! I ordered again, without reading reviews, and it has been 4 weeks. After reading the reviews, I plan to cancel and block the charges.

  333. Ordered hoses two months ago. Money was drafted out of account and I have not received hoses nor can I contact for refund the number given on web site does not connect. I think this is a scam and rip off apparently I’m not the only one this has happen to. Wish I had read the reviews before ordering. IF I COULD FIND THE COMPANY RESPONSIBLE THEFT CHARGES WOULD FOLLOW. ADD UP ALL THAT HAVE BEEN CHEATED AND IT COMES UP QUITE A SUM OF MONEY. FRAUD FRAUD

  334. I see this hose for sale in NJ at a department store (Boscovs) for 20.00 for 50 ft. I was going to buy it and save the outrageous s&h and delayed delivery, but after reading the reviews of the hose breaking in a short period of time, I will stick with the traditional 3/4″ contractor grade hose. At least you can re-couple it if it should break and all is not lost. Thanks for the other reviews.

  335. Ordered the hoses two times….both times they drafted my checking account….have never received a hose yet! How long can a scam like keep running? Maybe Obama should look into this…LOL

    Don’t order these hoses!

    I still get emails every few days to order….some agency should look into this company. You will also notice there is no phone number where you can call and speak with someone! Live and learn….

  336. It is very irresponsible from your part, to be enjoying my money, and no delivery has been made of that hose.

  337. I got screwed on the shipping and still do not have the hoses. I paid half off to priority shipping. It was supposed to be $4.95, it was $5.95. I hope I get two hoses since the shipping was for two hoses. I hope it works, but after reading these reviews I doubt it will.

  338. I ordered a Flexable Hose on this TV commercial some eight weeks and did not get it yet. Is this a scam on a TV commercial…??? I am still waiting.


    I ordered this product for $290.00 without checking on reviews. After waited several weeks they finally had arrived. It’s been a month that i have them and 3 already busted! The “friendly” costumer service it’s a LIE.

    We are making this company rich for their bogus product’s instead to report them to Better Business Bureau…

  340. I was one step away from placing my order but somehow decided to check review. Thanks for saving me from wasting money. I feel the pain of people who got scammed into buying this product, and appreciate your comments and helping out other potential buyers.

    • I cautiously notice’d this company (step #1) obtains customers credit card info, name & address, (hit submit button) BEFORE disclosing all final cost calculations on a second page. Why not gather payment info AFTER customer agrees to total order cost. So glad I questioned this indiscretion and searched these reviews first.

  341. I ordered the flex-able hose in October 2012, it is now February 2013, no hose delivery. Are they kidding, they say they are back order due to high demand, but they keep advertizing??

  342. DO NOT BUY.
    Purchsed 2 hoses and both ruptured with in 3 months. Can not locate phone number or information on warranty. Nice idea for hose but waste of money.

  343. Not sure how this works, ordered Dec. 31 2012 now Feb. 7 2013 have not received. Told might ship sometime in March maybe. Site still says 3 to 4 week shpping.

  344. 01-06-13 I ordered the FlexAble Hose (2 for the price of 1) back on December 15, 2012. I still have not received them. When I try to track my order all is says is ‘Processing’ – Please allow 2 – 3 weeks for delivery. It has been 7 weeks already. There is no email address to contact them, only a phone number which would mean making a long distance call. What kind of scam is this company running? Very Pissed Off here.

  345. Well I ordered the 50 foot hose as well with the BOGO free offer, just paying extra shipping and then at check out upgraded to the rough terrain model. All the pricing was correct but the only issue I have right now is that I placed the order 12/24 and still no hoses. I did check on the status of the order with the order number provided and it said that it still had not shipped and that it could take anywhere from 6 to 10 weeks for delivery. I’m going to give it a couple more weeks then start raising hell.

  346. I had ordered this product on their website, before looking at the reviews. I call back 1-2 hours after placing the order and was told I would have to wait 24 hours before they could cancel the order. After speaking to a customer service rep today, he did cancel my order. Now we will see if the money is credited back to my account.

    • I also purchased the 75′ hose and used it maybe six times when it started to leak. I cannot get on their web site to file for a replacement. When I log on to their site, it redirects me to another site which my fire wall blocks due to possible viruses. Have you been able to contact them for a replacement? If so, what web site or phone number?

  347. Aside from the issues mentioned already, apparently they are using an address of 500 Returns Road in Wallingford, CT 06495. This address does not exist. From what I can tell the company that sells this hose, Tristar Products is out of New Jersey. The numbers provided also have a prefix from New Jersey. Big Scam!!

  348. Flexable hose they sold these at all the water parks about three feet long but it would even last till the end of day at water park they always broke at the connections. Don’t buy!!

  349. I placed an order for the 75 ft Flexable hose on the computer and indicated that I wanted the second same size hose for only shipping and handling. I only received one hose, so I phoned Flexable Hose about not receiving the .second free hose and was told that they would not send the free hose per the offer, but would reimburse me $7.05. I think this is a sham and that they are a fraud and should honor their advertisements.

  350. Hose worked great for 2 weeks, then hose bib end cracked and blew off of hose bib. Bought at as seen on tv location. They had no interest in helping me. Called hose company, they also had no interest in helping me. Do not buy this product, doesn’t work and no customer support.

  351. I have ordered a couple of As seen on TV items and encountered trouble as described above, so when I saw the flexible hose, I was curious to see if, like all the other items I’ve checked on, it too was poorly manufactured and falsely advertised. Thank you to all those who confirmed my suspicions. I will never again purchase from a tv ad.

  352. Thanks to all that posted regarding the Flexible Hose. Maybe should post on Facebook too to get the info out. I really appreciate that all of you posted..Thanks so much!!

  353. This Flexable Hose is a huge scam. Clicked buy one get one free but only received one. Called customer service and they said it was my mistake. I know I clicked for the second free!! Got absolutely no where with customer service. They said I would have to return the one I got at my expense, reorder again, and wait the another 10 weeks to receive a new one! DO NOT ORDER from this place!!

  354. I too was told, I didn’t click the buy one get one option on the order form.. To bad I didn’t take a screen shot.. I know I did click the box.. I would recommend to everyone to take a scree shot of the order form prior to submitting the order as a precaution .. It seems way to convenient to say the box was not checked since they are having supply issues.

  355. It sounded like such a great idea, that I succumbed to the temptation and ordered one on line. It was a scam . . . I ordered the two for the price of one (just add an additional S&H, the ad said). The final tab: close to a hundred bucks. I immediately called AmExpress (who confirmed it was a scam), and put a stop on payment. After reading the product reports on this site, I’ve given up on buying one! Thanks, all of you, for the input. . .

  356. We ordered the Flexable Hose in Oct. 2012 and ordered both a 50′ and a 75′ hose with 1 of each included free. The hoses were not delivered until late Dec.

    About 3 weeks after they were delivered my wife was spraying down the pool deck with one of the 50′ hoses when the hose literally exploded just behind the spray connection leaving a large red bruise on her thigh. I found an approximately 2″ piece of a sold rubber hose core that was torn at both ends and split right down the middle from end to end floating in the pool. This piece matched the core of the exploded hose.

    I called Flexable Hose and they agreed to replace the defective hose. I am unsure if I will return it to them or not. I don’t believe my wife will ever be comfortable using this product again. The rep from Flexable Hose stated “they had never heard of this happening before”. I tend to doubt the truthfulness of that statement.

  357. Thankyou everyone who took the time to post a comment. Thank you for saving me the time on this Flexable Hose scam!!

  358. I just purchases a Pocket Hose. I tried it out as most skeptical people would thinking it would not work. I gotta tell you it does work. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked. I watered my entire lawn and the hose never ever kinked. I am very happy with my purchase and plan on getting 2 more hoses.

  359. Why the heck are they still allowed to sell these hoses or advertise if all this is true? I would be contacting the Better Business Bureau ….

  360. Within 2 minutes of turning on the water to my lawn, the water pressure blew a hole through the cheap fabric of this hose. I did enjoy the hose for the two minutes it worked. It is a good idea but obviously they have not developed the materials and/or construction to be able to make a quality product. Do not buy it.

  361. I always wait until these gimmicks come out into stores like Walmart. At our local flea market, there is a stand called As Seen On TV, they have everything that ever was on A.S.O.T.V. and with out the S&H!! They are rip off on the website, and they do take 5 to 12 days to give back your money, but if you use your debit card that has a credit card name on it, normally your bank will treat certain transactions as a credit card payment and give you the same protection. The money is reversed and held until the dispute is settled, if fraud is found other charges are filed against them.

  362. A few days ago I ordered the 50′ hose w/o any frills and extras except a supposed $5.00 additional charge for the “Rough Service” option. Shipping was to be standard Entire process was automated. Received email confirmation of order and the $5.00 charge was $10.00 and the $8.99 S&H was $17.98 for a total of $57.91. Shipping date was extended from 3-5 weeks to 4-6 weeks and the topper was that my credit card was double charged. I’ve stopped payment and am still waiting for their office to open for a “visit” with them. DO NOT BUY. THIS IS A RIP-OFF. I will be contact my state’s attorney general’s office as soon as they open this morning. Also, FLEXABLE HOSE offices were not open on Dec. 31.

  363. Thank you to those of you who took the time to post your BAD experience with ordering Flexable hose! Your experiences sound way too familiar for a lot of these As Seen On TV ads, especially when a 2nd product is offered for “free” if you pay the extra S&H. It’s as if they want the use of your money for a few or several or many days so they can invest in some hot stock in the market and turn a few bucks. I just don’t understand why / how they think they can get away with such rip-offs. Wish there was a way to do unto them what they’ve done unto many of use — like find their names and photos and post them everywhere under “SCAM ARTISTS: , etc.

  364. Am I the only one that loves the Flex-Able Hose? I did get it for a Christmas present so I know nothing about the shipping. I use it in my barn where carrying it back and forth is a breeze and not at all the pain that trying to drag a normal hose to the house to unthaw is. My only concern is how long it will last. I am not using the nozzle that came with the hose as it doesn’t meet my needs. The only thing I don’t like is that you have to get used to the pull when you open the nozzle and the water doesn’t run as fast as it does in a regular hose.

    • ARE you using this to water your stock? I wanted it for that since in the winter the regular hoses don’t work and horses still need to be watered.

      • I hope not. The only warning listed on the info inside the package is to NOT drink from the hose. It says “The water in the hose may become contaminated and cause serious health effects.” I just bought one today at Walgreen’s in their As Seen on TV section. I’ll be returning it. Thanks for all the reviews.

  365. I ordered one order of this Flex-Able Hose and when I got up the next morning and checked my bank account they had deducted the charge THREE times! I called immediately and canceled the order and told them what scammers they are. After waiting on hold for 45 minutes, someone finally answered – naturally it was somebody in God knows where that spoke very little English! They canceled the order 4 days ago and the money STILL is not back in my account!! Called back this morning and was told it would take 5 to 7 days to put the money back in my account. It took them 3 minutes to STEAL it, but was going to take more than a week to put it back?? DO NOT ORDER THIS!! THEY ARE SCAMMERS THAT STEAL 3 TIMES THE COST OF YOUR ORDER AND USE YOUR MONEY FOR FREE UNTIL THEY DECIDE TO PUT IT BACK!! I will be filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and the Attorney General’s Office in my State. I’ve noticed they don’t do it with credit cards, apparently only debit cards because they know the credit card companies would burn them a new one for doing 3 charges for one purchase. So they basically have $500 of my money tied up, using it for FREE until they decide to put it back. I will also be calling my bank and get them to file a fraud alert. STAY AWAY FROM THESE CROOKS!!! For those of you that can’t find a phone number here is the number – 973-287-5160 – it may take a while for them to answer because I think their plan is to see how long you will hang in there before hanging up. Let’s stop these people before they rip off more people.

    • Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review and sharing your unfortunate experience with the Flex-able hose. I was going to place an order after watching their very convincing ad on the TV, but it’s a good thing I took the time to read all the bad reviews.

  366. Please someone who has actually received and used the hose write a review. I want to know about the hose not how badly the company ships them!

    • I got Flexable Hose but it doesn’t work with any other attachments (sprinklers, power nozzles etc) I didn’t have any processing or shipping trouble. Just can’t do a heck of a lot with it… Hope this helps. 🙂

    • Read the Flexable Hose reviews. There are as many complaining about the failure and overall quality of this product as there are complaining about the company practices. In either event, why would you even consider ordering from these scamming thieves?

    • I ordered and received two 25′ Flexable hoses. One leaked at he nozzle end from out of the box. The other one exploded on third use. Flexable Hose came apart at nozzle end leaving an un-fixable stump. DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

    • I ordered two sets of the buy one get one free for Christmas presents. Because it was winter the hoses were put up and we only recently remembered to get them out. Absolutely loved the product – easy to use and carry, lightweight – wonderful. At least it was wonderful until the third time I used the one given to my mother and it blew a hole out the side. And it was wonderful until I used the one at my house for the fifth time and the whole end came off. Because it is over 60 days the company will not do anything about it – very expensive $95.00 mistake that won’t happen again. Bought a cheaper replacement hose of the same type at Wal-Mart and it’s still working – hmmm!

  367. I ordered the flexible hose plus spray head for $19.95 + s&h = $27.94 The spray head broke after using 3 times. Also a box is checked saying you want the extra hose, free, just pay $7.99 shipping and handling, but then, in my experience, they did not send me my second Flexable hose and spray head. They said I did not check the “box getting one free” but I did. Not worth $27.94 I can tell you that!

  368. Somehow I’m only receiving one Flexable Hose instead of buy 1 get 1 free because I must have frickin missed something on their website. Maybe I’m lucky I didn’t loose another 9.99 anyway after reading all these reviews.

  369. I called the 800 # for the flexible hose and got a telemarketing nightmare recording. I finally hung up as it went on for 30 minutes with no end in sight. Stupidly I gave my account # at the beginning expecting a person to come on the line to verify which never happened. Within seconds my account was charged $160.71 for something that should have cost $45.92 completely. Now I am trying to cancel the whole thing as this is my Christmas money!!! Of course this has also become a nightmare. I will never do business with these people again and I’d advise everyone to stay away from them as well. It is a scam and a rip-off!!!! I’m surprised someone has not shut them down. Should be illegal!!

    • Thank you for posting your Flexable Hose reviews. I learned my lesson with anything shown on “As seen on TV” It always sounds great but its a scam most of the time. Again Thank you for your feedback.

  370. I am a mail carrier. Priority mail means your package is supposed to arrive in your hands within 2 – 3 days. If you pay for priority shipping and don’t get your product within that time frame, the shipper has NOT shipped it priority and has taken your money. This is obviously a scam.

  371. Don’t wasted your time or money – the shipping was nearly as much as the cost of the hoses, and now I am paying to return them. I got my hoses in a reasonable amount of time, but they simply don’t work as described and shown on t.v. …. unless you keep the water in the hose. You are supposedly able to use them with sprinklers, but as soon as the water exits the hose (either thru a sprinkler or my own nozzle), it shrinks back to its original size, and what use is a 9 foot hose for watering a normal yard! They feel quite flimsy, so don’t know how long they would have lasted.

  372. Same here as everyone else. I ordered my hose the 75′ buy one get one free October 6th 2012. It says 2-3 weeks for delivery. It is now 12/5/12. Where the hell is my hose. I feel so dumb and I never order things off tv. I guess a lesson has been learned here.

  373. In my opinion this “Flexable-hose” is nothing more then a scam,they took my money knowing full well when they did that they would never deliver on the time frame they had promised they would. I paid an additional $9.99 for priority shipping,within 10 days they told me,so I paid for that as well as the cost for 3 hoses, when you call,you never get to speak to a human being,it’s all on computer as far as responses go,they now tell you it will be 4 to 6 weeks before your order will be completed,”due to popular demand” of course, yet they are still running tv ads to get your money,knowing full well your not going to get your order. I paid $165.78 for this crap service, but I was smart and used my credit card for the purchase, as soon as I get my statement,I’ll have the credit card company pull that payment and get my money back, I would suggest to anyone who reads this do to the same thing,it’s only a matter of time before this company says it’s no longer in business and you will be out any money you gave them,get out while you can,in my opinion this is definitely an “internet scam”!!! Good Luck to you !

    • You couldn’t be more right! I ordered online the Buy 1 Get 1 (50 foot) and wound up getting such a messed up order. More than 10 calls, emails, etc. they did credit my account back BUT NOT THE S&H. My original 50′ hose, including the Get 1, cost me $97.87.

      Never again.

  374. Flex Hose website is a joke as their order status part doesn’t give anything other than order received and it’ll take 2-3 weeks before delivery. This is ridiculous as they’ve already submitted the order amount to my credit card and this ties up almost $60 dollars. I should have gone to Amazon or waited until it was available at Wal-mart.

  375. The cost to ship is very high but I bought it anyway. They keep telling me that because of high demand it will be another 2-3 weeks. I am beginning to think it is a scam.

  376. We are interested in acquiring FlexAbleHose for personal use, and we are further interested in exploring the possibility of our promoting and selling your products here in Belize, which though relatively small supports a sophisticated market in which we have been active for over twenty-five years.

    With our experience, we are convinced that FlexAbleHose will do very well in this market, and should you concur, we will appreciate receiving your price lists, promotional material and samples if possible.

    • Hello Howard,

      I agree, this product would probably sell very well in the Belize market. I was looking for info on this hose for a personal purchase… then saw your comment about being a resident of Belize for some 25 years.

      We have recently acquired a sizable tract of land in the Cayo district and wondered if you would possible write back about your experiences there.

      What district do you folks live in? My wife and I will be returning to San Ignacio, mid Jan. For another six week stay. We could talk more about your hose proposal and other things about adjusting to living in Belize.

      Hope to hear from you.

  377. Amazon.com carries the X hose, apparently the same hose but blue. At least at amazon, I know I get my money back if not satisfied and prices are cheaper. Plus there are reviews.

  378. About 10 years ago I bought a similar product that had an integrated hose reel to roll up the hose. It lasted a couple of months before it basically disintegrated. Don’t remember what I paid, but whatever it was, certainly wasn’t worth it. Beware!

  379. In the time it takes to ‘actually’ receive a Flexable hose, how many times do you think I/you could have rolled up a normal hose?

    It’s a cheap elastic hose,, how long do you think its going to last? My god folks, how many of these cheap off shore items will you buy before you realize your getting ‘hosed’.. Sorry about the cheap play on words, but if they were that great, they would be for sale ‘EVERYWHERE’.

    But wait!!! if I comment now, I get 2 chances… Do you see a pattern on this cheap junk.

  380. No need to buy one to consider the main flaw. The Flexable Hose first has to inflate like a balloon to extend. If you do not attach a nozzle at all it will inflate very little or not at all. That happens if you adjust the nozzle to increase water flow? The hose shrinks in length. What does that say about the included nozzle? It has very restricted flow so to reduce the inherent flaw.

    • I have been contemplating purchasing one of these hoses since seeing them on television; that was until I read your review. Thanks for saving me some money.

      • That’s not a review its a disagreement with the design and shows a compete lack of understanding of physics. Once the hose inflated the water flow will keep it inflated. If the reviewers logic were sound a regular hose would get soft once you started spraying water. They don’t. His reasoning is flawed and that review should not be used to make a decision to buy or not.

        I’m sure it works. My concern is how long it lasts. Since you have to use somewhat lighter materials and since it expands and contracts there would naturally be more fail points. At that point its about the quality of the materials and the quality of construction. Since these hoses aren’t less expensive I’m sure the materials are more costly which may be a good indicator. Durability should be the primary concern and I will post a thoroughly review if I decide to try them.

        By the way people, of you are trying to post a review of a product, giving 1 star bwcauae Amazon pissed you off it the mail lost the package is a disservice to everyone looking at review. Review the product honestly and then complain about the company in your narrative.

          • I have an Xhose that I have been using for about three months. It is cheaply made and I don’t expect it to last very long. I have already replaced the plastic connectors with brass ones. However, the flexible hose concept is brilliant but there has not been one made yet with quality materials. When that happens, the maker of the hose will make millions.

  381. I think this Flexable Hose is a scam! I ordered the two for one 75′ hose on September 12, 2012 and have not received it yet. I was told the demand was so high that the shipment date would be 2 to 3 more weeks. That was a month ago.

    • My son used one of the 75′ hoses and the end blew off. Also a friend in MA had the same thing happen. Junk

      • So disappointed. Purchased flexible hose this past May. They are a disappointment. Not sure why they are still being sold. After use for only about a month, they leak and can’t even attach a sprayer too them. They don’t just leak then, they pour where attached!!

    • People, listen up! This is supposed to be a review for the Flex hose here, NOT about our country’s President.

      Keep in mind, that Obama was left with a country in shambles, AFTER a REPUBLICAN President left it that way. What do you expect Obama to do? You want immediate results in this country? Good God! The man was left to clean up Republican crap after years of Bush… you’ve got him to blame, NOT Obama.

      Best thing to do is to keep Republicans OUT OF OFFICE for good. That way our country can get rolling again, without the constant pulling back by Republican idiots! All they care about is lining their own pockets and NOT helping the middle class. Republicans can go to hell.

  382. Ordered the “buy on get one free” hose on Sept. 18. With the $29.95 price & the 17.98 shipping costs, the 2nd hose isn’t actually free, in my opinion. IN ADDITION – when you track the shipment on “customer status.com” it says “in Progress, please allow 2 – 3 weeks for delivery”, even after 5 1/2 weeks. Calling the Customer service number from the Flex-able Hose website got me the information that the product was on back order & “should” arrive at the end of November. That would make the total time 10 weeks – if it actually arrives !! It seems to me that they should have said that up front so you could decide to order or not. If I could find one in a store, I’d tell them what they could do with their 50′ of hose!

    • I ordered my Flexable Hose on October 1 and still haven’t received it. You can’t speak to someone because when you call the number listed it says it isn’t a valid number and when you call the number they refer you to email the at http://www.customerstatus.com and that is not a valid email. I think we’ve been scammed since they already processed it on my credit card. I am going to contact the Attorney General’s Office.

      • Carol,

        Ask your credit card provider to dispute the charges due to the problems and your money will be returned to you!!

  383. Flexable Hose shipping cost is 50% of the cost of the product. It is excessive especially in view of the 3-4 weeks delivery. Contact me when the shipping cost is line with the industry practice.

    • Well,this is the best Flexable Hose review yet, it gave me a good chuckle. I’ll wait and check it out at Bed Bath and Beyond then if I don’t like it Ill return it. Bob, have you considered Comedy Central?

    • Also…if you wait and buy it on the shelf, you can return it for your money back if it malfunctions! Thats why I always wait until it comes to the shelf.

    • Cheers to that. Even more amazing is that I always see it on Fox News when I am at the gym … but wait there’s more … I haven’t seen an actual consumer review of this product yet …. and if you keep on reading this review, you’ll get an extra dose of BS that still has nothing to say about the product.

  384. Ordered Flex able Hose August 29, 2012 order No. 21524201235361036 and haven’t received yet. Have been unable to track it. Where is it?

    • My 83yr mom bought the flex hoses for $50, hoping it would work. She received it with two enclosed hoses. Both hoses BURST after six weeks of purchasing it.. One BURST in half!!!

    • I used the 50′ miracle hose for just two weeks and the hose disconnected from the spray gun end completely from the plastic male end leaving me soaked. Who can I send this back to? totally useless defective product no matter what your add says. I will probably take pics of it and share it on Facebook so others can be warned about your product not being what you claim it to be! I got 4 hoses two for me and two for my brother. I all ready called him and told him to check the hose at the connectors for any defects or abnormal fraying. Not really happy right now ! Let’s see what the company does about it!I rated the miracle hose at one star because they would not let me rate it no stars which is what I really rate it ZERO STARS! NO GOOD! BLAH! POS! TOTALLY USELESS! Have a nice day!
