When we buy PVC hoses in the store, many consumers will worry about quality. What kind of hose is excellent? A good tube can be used for 3-5 years. While a poor quality hose will be used in less than 1 year. It always appears oily, hard, discolored and so on. I have some good methods to identify its quality by looking and smelling.
First, look at the appearance of the garden hose. And you can judge it from color, thickness, the density of woven lines, and cross-section material status. The color is uniform, and the thickness is thicker in the same specification. Also the braided wire is dense and uniform. In addition, the cross-sectional material distribution is regular, and there is no honeycomb. This means that the tube is not too bad. Second, you need to see its manufacturer. The hoses’ quality from regular manufacturers is more guaranteed, and the quality will be better. Any regular manufacturer will print the manufacturer’s information, some important product parameter information, and have a traceability code.
You can touch the surface of the hose with your hand. The smoother the surface, the better the quality. You can also bend the pipe to see how fast it bounces. The faster the rebound speed, the better the elasticity and the less easy it is to deform.
Does it have some pungent odor? If you can smell the pungent odor, it means that the PVC hose is not an environmentally friendly material.
