Yes, I’m excited. I LOVE my Zero-G hoses but have wanted them to produce a 3/4″ version for over two years. Guess what has arrived? The new Zero-G Professional 3/4″ garden hose.

The new 3/4″ pro garden hose from Zero-G 75 feet long and about $67
This is the 100 foot version Doc uses in most of his videos. It’s a 5/8″ hose and is good for 95% of your needs. Runs about $50
Read these IMPORTANT points first…
Don’t buy the cheap Walmart version…
They make a BLUE version that is a mass market garden hose. It is 1/2″ and not the same quality as the ones below.
My Personal Experience
I have a total of 11, yes that is ELEVEN, of the Zero-G gray 5/8″ hoses. Some are over 3 years old and I have NEVER stored them inside. I’m a horrible HOSE DAD. I leave them out in the elements all year round, lying on the ground. My neighbor Barb has 3 of these hoses. My shop has 4 of these hoses. We have NEVER had one fail. These are NOT the old EXPANDABLE hoses that came out years ago. I have had those and ALL of them eventually failed.
Barb’s Hoses have sat outside hanging for over 2 years. No failures.
I have read some reviews and found some people that have had them fail. Not me.
Why and when to use the PRO 3/4″ vs. 5/8″
This is where you need to understand PSI vs. GPH… Pressure vs. Volume… 90% of the time a 5/8″ hose is all you need. You get the same PRESSURE… PSI but a lower water VOLUME… GPH. The one time this really comes into play for me is when running sprinklers. You need both pressure and volume.
The standard hose comes with a 5 year warranty and the pro version comes with a 10 year warranty. What else could you ask for on a “garden hose”.
I often have to grab the hoses and haul them across the street to spray the neighbor’s yard. I can grab 200 feet of hose and throw it over my shoulder. There is NO WAY I could do this with a rubber style hose. LOVE THEM.
Rubber hoses develop weak points over time, this is where they kink. The “material like” skin of the Zero G is soft and has no MEMORY. Sure you’ll still get a kink once in while but I have found this to happen about 75% less than traditional hoses.
