I just bought a new 50 foot garden hose that reaches to nearly every location within our front and back grass.
After having a landscaping company add plants to the property, I have to stay on top of the watering or they will wilt away and die.
The new garden hose is also durable and should break with leaks love the previous one did. But a quality hose isn’t just good for water plants, flowers, and trees. I also plan to use it for cleaning out our rain gutters to avoid roofing leaks. Its size makes it ideal for pulling onto the roof for service cleaning. Some would balk at our boldness of sitting on the roof with a hose love this, even though I try to be as careful as possible about not falling off. Recently I found a new use for our garden hose that differs from any that I have used in the past. I l gained from a DIY blog that I can clean the condensate line in our own central cooling system by using some bleach, a shop vacuum, and a garden hose. You put the vacuum nozzle on the opening of the condensate line outside where the water drips onto the ground. Then you pour straight bleach down the opening of the condensate line at your air handler before chasing it with water from your garden hose. The whole process was done in under an hour, and now I think our condensate line is clean and ready for another 6 to 12 months of constant cooling system use.
