For those who need to supply a high volume of water over a large area such as a farm, construction site or stretch of landscape, Swan’s Element Contractor/FARM® hose has several features that make it the ideal contractor farm hose for both construction and agricultural needs, from cleaning debris off a worksite to watering trees.

The Swan contractor water hose features an excellent 400+ PSI burst strength, powerful enough to handle the high water pressure necessary for extreme work conditions. To prevent this high-volume water hose from bursting, we’ve added heavyweight reinforcement at key areas for maximum durability.

Another main feature is the hose’s octagonal shape that makes it highly kink-resistant, along with our patented Hose Armour® at the female coupling to prevent kinking at the water source. Its red color, meanwhile, allows this commercial water hose to stand out at the worksite to reduce the chances of being tripped or run over.

To make this heavy-duty contractor farm garden hose even more resilient, we’ve added extra-large aluminum couplings that are damage-resistant if run over by heavy equipment, as well as an oversized female coupling that connects to the water source without a wrench or other tools.

The hose is available as both a 5/8-inch garden hose and as a 3/4-inch garden hose, with the extra-large 3/4-inch water hose moving 20 percent more water. It’s also lead-free and compliant with California’s strict phthalate-content standards.

Our limited lifetime warranty ensures that this heavy-duty contractor-grade water hose is a good investment, serving as a reliable tool on the job site for many years.

How Do I Set Up My Hose?

  • Set up your hose outside in temperatures above 70 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure maximum flexibility.
  • Remove all packaging and ties.
  • Check that the washer is properly seated in the coupling that attaches to the water source.
  • Unwind the hose loosely in a circular motion before attaching it to the water source.
  • Run water through the hose until the water exiting the hose is cool.
  • Leave the hose laid out straight and allow it to heat up during the day.
  • Wind the hose back accordingly.

How Do I Care for My Hose?

  • Disconnect your hose from any standard metal faucet/spigot/hose bib and metal hose attachment and then reconnect at least twice per year to maintain a proper seal of the washer.
  • Before reconnecting, loosen any corrosion evident on the hose coupling, standard metal faucet/spigot/hose bib and metal hose attachment caused by weather or environmental elements, which can cause the hose to fuse to the faucet and/or attachment.
  • Always inspect the washer for proper placement and clear any buildup on the washer, coupling or faucet. This will help prevent potential leaks.
  • Never overtighten coupling connections. Normally, tightening the coupling connections by hand is sufficient. Using a wrench to tighten the couplings might stop a leak in the short-term; however, it can damage the washer, compromising it for future connections.
  • Do not pull and stretch the hose to reach a watering location beyond the length of the hose. When the hose starts to pull off the ground, you put excess force on its connections to the water source and any attachment such as a nozzle. This will not only damage your hose, it can also damage the plumbing that feeds the water source, as well as the attachment.
  • Be careful not to drive over your hose. This can damage the hose and drastically reduce its life.
  • If your hose is left in a shady spot, its exterior can be cleaned periodically with a mild soap-and-water solution to reduce the chance of organic growth. How Do I Store My Hose?
  • Drain your hose when you’re not using it. Water left in a hose for extended periods of time can cause bacteria to form.
  • Once the hose is drained, the male and female ends can be connected for storage. Washer replacement is suggested annually or after a prolonged connection.
  • When coiling the hose for storage, try to do so without leaving any kinks in the hose. A hose stored with kinks will most likely kink in these same locations very easily once the hose is put back in use. Prolonged kinks create weak spots in the hose.
  • Store the hose indoors when not in use.
  • Flush your hose with water when put back in use.

Warnings

  • Do not run hot water through your hose.
  • Do not run liquids other than water through your hose as they are only designed for use with water.
  • Do not leave the hose under pressure when not in use. Heat or pressure can damage your hose and cause it to leak or burst.
  • Our hoses are not intended for indoor use. Garden hoses are intended for use in residential and/or commercial water systems that have typical average water pressures up to approximately 100 PSI. Garden hoses should not be used for system pressures based upon burst rating.
