Hated the old one and it finally split! It was too heavy to drag around and crushed my plants. I'm thinking of one of those springy spiral hoses, but how's the quality?

Doesn't take much to please you does it. My hose has the end cut off so you can't attach anything to it. Maybe that is what I should ask for for my bday.

You can buy a connector for your hose with no end on it. I got some at Lowes or Home Depot for under $2 each if you get the metal kind. And may I say...get the metal kind. The plastic ones will split.

My hose had cracked at the faucet end. Rick "fixed" it by cutting off the metal screw-on part, cutting the cracked part off the hose, and reattaching the hose to the metal part with a metal ring and a nut. I have to unscrew it every day to go from the front to the back, which meant twisting it while the nut dug into my hand. After two years of that, you can see why I'm thrilled!

I am looking for a new hose too. I like the idea of getting one of these. They seem like they will take up little space but are light and stretch far. Does anyone have any experience with them?

That's good to know! What are snap-on connectors, Ron?

Sweetle, I think I would opt for a new one too after all of that headache.

That is great news, as I am now the proud owner of four hoses ( people keep giving me their old ones). They're all great hoses, and I need all of 'em, as there are gardens on all four sides of the house, and spigots in the garage and out back. Translation? I need hoses I can reconfigure easily depending on what needs watering. Off to Home Depot, I go... Thanks, RonsGarden
