Choosing your hose diameter

The next thing to think about when buying a hose is the diameter.
8mm
  • Ideal for small gardens, patios and courtyards
  • Lightweight and easy to move around the garden
  • Lower flow rate than a 12mm hose
12mm
  • Most common size for residential gardens
  • Good water flow without being too heavy
  • Extensive range of fittings, hand sprays and reels
18mm
  • More than double the flow rate of a 12mm hose
  • Heavier and harder to move around
  • Limited range of fittings

Choosing the right hose length

Measure the distance from the tap to how far you want to water. Bear in mind longer hoses cost more, are heavier to move around and need more storage space.

Pope Tip

Pope Tip

When you bring your new hose home, roll out the entire hose from the outside-in and leave flat out in the sun for a couple of days. This will assist to release the ‘memory’ after being coiled, reduce annoying kinks and make the hose easier to manage.

Tap Ready® or Unfitted Hoses

Tap Ready hoses mean they are fitted with hose connectors and a universal tap adaptor, so you can take your hose home and connect to the tap. Unfitted hoses come in a variety of lengths for those of you who need a specific length for your application.

12mm Tap Ready Hoses

Fitted with Pope’s unique PermaFit® hose connectors and a Universal Tap Adaptor, these factory crimped fittings provide secure leak-free watering even under high water pressure.

Choose the duty of your hose

The hose duty rating tells you how resistant to kinks it will be.
Light Duty
  • For infrequent watering or on a budget
  • Lighter in weight
  • Low resistance to kinks
Medium Duty
  • Good all round hoses
  • Medium resistance to kinks
Heavy Duty
  • For the gardening enthusiast
  • Super tough exterior for longer durability
  • High resistance to kinks

Check the packaging for the duty rating 1-10

Get to know water pressure and flow

With the right hose, your plants get the right amount of water. So it’s a good idea to check your mains water pressure and flow – and make sure they match your hose.
Water flow
  • Is the amount of water coming out of your tap/hose in a certain amount of time.
  • Hand sprays, wands, sprinklers can restrict the flow
  • Use the bucket test to check your flow rate
Water pressure
  • The amount of force the water exerts when coming out of your tap.
  • Generally between 400 – 1000 kPa in most homes around Australia
  • May need to check with your plumber for accurate water pressure result

Care for your hose in six simple steps

1
Unroll and lay your hose flat to prevent kinks
Roll out your new hose and leave flat out in the sun for a couple of days. This will assist to release the ‘memory’ after being coiled, reduce annoying kinks and make the hose easier to manage.
2
Keep it on a hose reel or cart to avoid tripping
Avoid tangles, trips and mess with a garden hose reel or cart. It’s the best way to keep your hose neat, tidy and ready for watering.
3
Turn the water off at the tap after use
Over longer periods of time the water pressure can stress the hose and lead to ruptures, wasting water and damaging your garden. Always turn off the tap and store your hose away after each use.
4
Use a hand spray or nozzle for smarter watering
Attach a hand spray to your hose for easy and efficient watering and cleaning, from a soft shower to a strong jet. Most hand sprays will connect to started 12mm hose fittings, or use an adaptor for 18m fittings.
5
Keep it out of the sun
Harsh UV rays can damage and crack the exterior layers of the hose, leading to ruptures. Any water remaining in the hose can also heat to high temperatures and cause damage to the interior.
6
Flush your hose until the water runs cool
On warm days, or if your hose has been out in the sun, always remember to run water through the hose away from your plants until it runs cool. Hot water can scald and damage your plants.
