Swan’s rubber garden hoses are an excellent choice for a cold-weather water hose. Many models are made of an exclusive rubber formula that makes them twice as strong than standard rubber hoses and yet 40 percent lighter. In addition, these cold-weather hoses are more resistant to cracking, with many remaining flexible down to -40 degrees Fahrenheit. This makes them better suited for watering plants in winter’s colder temperatures than traditional PVC garden hoses, which often harden and/or crack at temperatures of 50 degrees Fahrenheit or lower.
Properly storing your hose is one of the easiest ways to ensure you get the longest possible lifetime out of it.
