Dap XHose Pro is light-weight expandable garden hose which has been advertised on television. Here is our Dap XHose Review plus key product information.
Several different expandable hoses have been competing for As Seen on TV consumer dollars in recent years, including heavily advertised options such as Flex-Able Hose and Pocket Hose. The Dap XHose Pro seems at first glance to solve some of the problems associated with its competition, namely fittings that break easily. So how does Dap XHose Pro measure up?
We put it to the test and our results were disappointing. Even though the pro model of the Xhose features “solid brass fittings,” we still had problems with leakages and breakage. Two two products that we tested experienced many of the same problems that the other expandable hoses have, even with the brass fittings. In reading other internet reviews, we found that other reviewers had similar experiences.
The Dap Xhose Pro “About” page describes the product in the following manner:
“The original expandable garden hose, XHOSE by DAP®, is everything your typical garden hose isn’t – it’s lightweight, compact, and expandable, with a powerful spray and a kink-free design. Now the DAP® XHOSE Pro is better than ever, with solid brass fittings, a wider diameter and more powerful spray, and crafted from even stronger materials. Plus, it expands and contracts up to twice its length for easy maneuverability and convenient storage. The DAP® XHOSE Pro is like no hose in the world, making it easier than ever to work in the yard, wash your car, and more – you can even take it on the go, in your truck, boat, or RV.”
Note: the Xhose Pro appears to have been replaced by an even newer model: the XHose Pro Extreme. You can read a review for that version here. The XHose Pro can still be found in some stores, however.
