A good garden hose isn’t just durable. It also won’t contain nasty chemicals that might leach into the water flowing through it to contaminate your drinking water or vegetable garden. Water Right offers a high-quality, drinking water safe garden hose that’s made of polyurethane – a great option since it’s free of lead and other potentially toxic additives.
Water Right hoses are lightweight and use commercial quality fittings. The polyurethane material meets FDA and NSF standards for drinking water safety, and their “Slim & Light” hose was even rated one of the Top 100 New Products for 2012 by the folks at This Old House.
