If you’re Dee Evans (center with dad and brother), whose family has been in the hose business for 35 years, you’ve devised all kinds of ways to abuse a hose like this one, called GatorHyde. Dee left it outside, frozen solid, for months and repeatedly ran over it with a forklift and an 18-wheeler. Still the GatorHyde survived, without damage.
Besides being incredibly tough, GatorHyde is lightweight and flexible. Dee uses recycled polyurethane to make the outside of the GatorHyde, a practice that so far has saved 150,000 pounds of old hose from winding up in landfills. The ends are nickel-plated, which ensures that no harmful substances transfer from the hose. If you’re ready to say goodbye to those kinked, cracked and impossibly heavy hoses that are always a tangled mess, the GatorHyde is the perfect lifetime upgrade. Its kink-free design will keep the water flowing and the grass growing.
