Reviews for Flex-Able hoses are more negative than positive on Amazon.com, where 57 percent of customers give the product only one out of five stars. However, a small number of reviewers rate their purchase very positively. Negative reviews mention that the hose breaks quickly, is leaky or is not as advertised. Other reviewers state that the product is exactly as advertised and that the hose never kinks.
As of November 2015, WalMart.com has mostly negative reviews of the Flex-Able hose. Customers point out that the product breaks after only a few months of use, even when they are treating the hose with care. Some consumers note that rips or tears in these hoses cannot be repaired using standard hose repair kits.
Other reviewers on Amazon.com state that the hose does not reach the maximum extension length, sometimes only extending 50 feet rather than 100 feet as advertised. One reviewer states that the stream flowing through the hose is very weak, especially when the hose is fully extended. Another customer states that the Flex-Able outperforms what was advertised, claiming that the hose extends to triple its length when wet, specifying that it’s 17 feet long when dry and exceeds 150 feet when wet.
