Frequently Asked Questions
How and why is the hose 40% lighter?
If you use hot water you have to use a rubber hose. Traditionally made rubber water hoses are heavy and stiff. The BluSeal and AG-Lite Hoses were formulated to be the lightest, strongest, most flexible 100% rubber water hoses ever made.
Why is 100% rubber superior?
The hose industry knows that rubber is the best material to use. Even hybrid manufacturers use a certain percentage of rubber in their hoses because of rubber's advantages over PVC. PVC is light and flexible but doesn't perform well in cold temperatures. Rubber outperforms PVC in cold weather and also has flexibility and also maintaining strength. PVC hoses lose their pressure rating safety factor when it is warm or hot. The pressure rating drops drastically when the outside temperature is over 70°F The BluSeal/AgLite hoses have a cold weather flexibility rating of -50°F and also maintains its pressure ratings up to +190°F.
What does the 10-year warranty include?
The warranty covers manufacturing defects. Should a fitting blow off, a leak occurs at the crimped ends or a hose bursts for no apparent reason, the hose needs to be returned and inspected. If a defect is present, it will be self-evident and fully covered by warranty. Wear and tear and misuse are not covered by the warranty. Ten years is the best warranty in the market.
Why are chrome plated brass fittings superior to aluminum?
Aluminum fittings are lighter than brass but are very soft, and easily crushed if a hose is run over. Brass and Chrome plated brass is slightly heavier but much more durable, overall a better fitting. The fittings included on BluBird’s BluSeal and AG-Lite hoses are crush proof.
What does the “No memory” mean for the product, and how does it keep the hose laying flat?
Kink-Memory, as it is referred to in the industry, affects most hoses. The cheaper the hose, the lesser the materials, and the more memory a hose will have. Hoses produced with plasticized PVC are the worst, while rubber ones are the best. All hoses are affected by a phenomenon called "compression set." All hoses tend to have some memory when first uncoiled. The coil's size is small to save on shipping costs. To have the best results and less memory, we suggest that the coil be opened and laid flat and then when it is to be stored, make a bigger coil. The best option is to have a hose reel for up to 100' of hose, and for over that length, we offer carts with flat free tires.
How does 500 PSI Burst Pressure compare to the competition?
Garden hoses are manufactured to withstand a certain amount of burst pressure. The pressure at which they split is referred to as a burst pressure rating. A low-quality hose will burst at about 200 psi, and a high-quality hose can hold together up to 500 psi.
What do we consider extreme weather conditions?
The pressure ratings for a hose are based on testing at an ambient temperature of 70°F. As the hose is exposed to warmer temperatures above 70°F and lower temperatures, it will affect the performance of the hose. Loss of pressure rating and hose integrity. We test all of the hoses to the highest and lowest temperatures where the hose maintains its integrity and pressure ratings. Ours is the best in the industry for either warm or cold temperatures. -50°F to +190°F for the BluSeal hoses.
What does ozone resistance mean?
Ozone Weather Resistance is the ability of rubber to withstand the effects of exposure to Ozone. Ozone and UV light can affect a hose, causing the hose to deteriorate over time. The BluSeal hose is a proprietary blend of EPDM rubber and chemicals, resistant to the effects of Ozone and UV exposure.
How are the hoses abrasion-resistant?
The BluSeal hose is naturally abrasion resistant because it’s made from an EPDM rubber with good abrasion resistance.
Why is the 4-finger grip bend restrictor important?
The bend restrictor is put on each hose end to protect the end fittings. The ends are the most vulnerable parts of the hose. Without the bend restrictor, the fittings can be damaged when bent. We developed the four-finger grip to conform to the user’s fingers, making the hose easier to hold and handle. This bend restrictor is proprietary to us.
What I.D sizes & lengths do the BluSeal Water Hoses come in?
Our primary offering for the BluSeal Water Hose is 6’, 15’, 25’, 50’, 75’, 100’. But BluBird Industries also provides longer lengths for use in bigger areas and loaded onto carts.
The hoses are available in ½”, ⅝”, ¾” & 1” I.D’s. All of them come with ¾” GHT end fittings.
Auto Retractable Water Hose Reels
BluSeal garden hose reel can increase productivity by providing quick and easy access to water for cleaning and maintenance purposes. By keeping the hose organized and tangle-free, it saves time and reduces the risk of damage to the hose, which can result in downtime for repairs or replacement. Additionally, a hose reel can enhance safety by preventing tripping hazards and reducing the likelihood of water-related accidents.
