When you think of water, which leads to the fact that something develops, you can remind yourself wide water monsters are sold for children under the age of 70 years. The XX century. You just dropped these superabsorbujące resin molds in a bowl of water and they came up several times in relation to the original size, to the fascination of those who were under a certain age.
Expandable hoses, we are looking for, do not have such a great attraction compared to these little beasts, but for adults they are the salvation of life.
These snakes are not only magical material that expands and contracts so well. They are actually made of two layers of special material. The first layer, the one you see is tkaną, sliding fabric, which helps protect the inner layer from the effects of the action factors. This inner layer is a rubber hose, the diameter of which increases in response to the pressure of the water pressing on the outer layer of fabric and creating long-lasting, more functional hose.
Appeared hose almost does not resist bending, but if pressed tightly together forcefully, will continue through it to leak water. The material of the inner hose also has properties of self-healing, making it more resistant to tears, holes and leaks.
Be however cautious. These hoses are able to withstand extremely high water pressure above 200 psi. Of course, the average family swings from 40 to 80 pounds per square inch at full throttle, so for many of us this will not be a big problem. On the reverse side, if you leave chop too closed and your pressure drops below 40 psi, many of these snakes will begin to decline, which will cost a bit more.
Length is not the only variable
If we are talking about the imitated products on the market, there is little to compare for a hose with a possibility of extension. Now not all models, which are smaller versions. Has nothing to say another company cannot come along and improve some aspect of the project.
However, I will say that. If you have a hard time on the difference between a single hose, and the second and it seems that they are identical in every parameter except price, maybe you’ll have to bite the bullet and spend a little more, but in order to guard against directly determined by the ratio of slit imitatorów.
Having said that, there are some very important things you should pay attention, in particular, the design of the couplings.
In my life, I probably had two snakes that have arched leakage, often due to excessive go too deep in winter. Part of your snake that will probably disappoint you, the connection on both sides. If it is made of plastic, in the near future you will have to buy a new hose. If possible, look for brass.
It should be noted that one of the hoses in our list is not standard, expandable type, which dominated the market, but, rather, more like those curly elastic laces, which I tried as fashion. The hose works much better than laces, and the snake, of course, will not allow you to push you in a locker.
The idea like Shoe laces, and the hose is almost the same: that the harder the coil retains its shape. This means no more kinks in the hose and no knots on the shoes.
The story of the snake on
There is something magical in how the water flows from the garden hose. Compare it to all summer and free, for a short pause in a child’s game for a quick drink in the fresh air. In our time, compare it also for any carcinogens that I, along with groundwater passed through the pipe with not regulated rubber and polymers. But that’s why they develop products that people.
The Greeks first pulled out the intestines of a calf and used them in combination with the bladder of the animal to create a primitive hose system is able to stifle what should be an extremely small fire. The intestines, of course, prone to breaking and degradation, so it was not particularly cost-effective options for firefighters.
In fact, some arts are Greek such hoses, which are used as flame-throwers during the battle, and the blisters were filled accelerator.
Over time the hose is turned into something more similar to what we use today, with a flexible option that ultimately came to us from Dutch artist and inventor by the name of Jan van der Heyden in 1600. Like many of the modern snakes, this was cumbersome and prone to damage as it is made of sharpened skin.
Materials have changed from there, because the manufacturers have used everything from jedwabi, using cloth, rubber and cloth of MTS for the production of hoses.
Then came Michael Berardi the inventor of new Jersey, with the idea of expanding the hose. To hear how he tells the story, first got the patents and all the others steal his ideas. The importance of its claims is unfolding currently in court, so while waiting for updates in this matter, went out for a drink to this thirsty lawn.
