Lawn & Yard Care
In a perfect world, each time you water your lawn or wash your car your hose performs perfectly—no leaks, no kinks, no splits. With the right care and maintenance, it’s possible. Just follow a few simple guidelines for hose care and enjoy a long-lasting, durable hose for years to come.
If you look into the end of your hose that attaches to the spigot, you’ll see a little ring made of rubber or plastic. That’s the washer, and its job is to create a tight seal that prevents leaks. Washers don’t last forever, but the good news is they’re easy to replace. Just pop out the old one and pop in a new washer every year. The start of your gardening or car-washing season is a great time to do it, so you won’t forget once the weather warms and you get busy.
You’ve heard it all your life: Put away your toys, put away your dishes, put away [fill in the blank]. We don’t mean to nag, but putting away the hose after every use helps prevent kinks and extend its life. Here’s a step-by-step storage checklist:
Before the temperatures dip toward freezing, it’s a good idea to drain the water and hang your hose in your garage, shed or basement for the winter. But before you detach it from the spigot, take off any attachments and clean the insides by flushing it out with fresh water for a minute or two. After flushing, detach if from the spigot, hoist it to your shoulder to drain the water completely and coil it up for proper hanging inside.
It’s easy to fix common hose problems, and the bonus is you don’t need to go out and spend money on a brand-new hose.
You want to do things right when it comes to maintaining your yard, garden, cars, deck, siding and more. Your hose needs to keep up with you, day in and day out. Make it a Betterday by giving your hose some care in return.
