“The best hose you’ll ever own.” That’s the way Swan’s Element-brand MaxFLEX® hose has been described. Chock-full of features, it’s one of the most versatile garden hoses on the market, ideal for nearly every watering task.

At the heart of Swan’s MaxFLEX® hose is a proprietary compound and our exclusive Lay-Flat Technology®, which allows the water hose to uncoil and lay flat as soon as first use, and to Snap Back Into Shape!® to fight kinks as you drag it across the lawn. Together these features provide not only additional durability, but also the highest achievement in garden hose flexibility and kink-resistance, making the MaxFLEX® the best flexible hose and best kink-free garden hose on the market.

This flexible garden hose also has an excellent 500+ PSI burst strength coupled with a wide 5/8-inch inside diameter, which means this high-pressure garden hose can withstand a large volume of water passing through it at great speed. To protect it from bursting, this heavy-duty garden hose is heavily reinforced and wrapped in an abrasion-resistant jacket to protect it from wear and tear.

Also heavy-duty on this kink-proof garden hose are the oversized aluminum couplings: They’re easy to connect to a water source and accessories with your bare hands in both summer and winter (with gloves on), as well as crush-proof—even under the weight of heavy machinery. The female coupling is also reinforced with Swan’s patented Hose Armour® to prevent the flexible water hose from also kinking at the water source.

Remarkably, even with all of these features, the kink-resistant hose is 20 percent lighter than similar garden hoses, making it easy to maneuver around your lawn and garden.

As an added benefit, the MaxFLEX® lightweight, flexible garden hose is lead-free and compliant with California’s strict phthalate-content standards. It also comes with a limited lifetime guarantee for years of reliable performance.

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.
