Other Offers including a Hose available as well
We were curious to see what all this Click Frenzy fuss was about, so we thought we would put our most popular garden hose connection set on sale.
This would be the perfect Christmas gift for one or two gardeners in your life!
Great stocking stuffer on the off chance that you know an adult gardener who still gets a stocking from Santa. We're not judging!
If you're curious to see what HOSELINK is all about, I recommend checking out the following 30 second clip:
Each set includes everything needed to connect both ends of the hose and is guaranteed to never burst-off, even in areas with exceptionally high water pressure (Sydney). They fit all standard garden hoses (12mm ID), any standard tap (3/4 or 1 inch) and work with all existing watering accessories.
The fittings are exceptionally durable, leak-free and feature a 3-year warranty. That said, we would expect them to last a lot longer than that due to the fact that they are made from nylon which is much denser than the ABS plastic commonly used. This means they don't break down in UV like ABS and no moving parts means they don't wear out over time. In fact, we have many customers who purchased our hose fittings when they first came out 10 years ago and continue to use the same set, transplanting them from hose to hose.
The included all-metal spray gun is heavy duty and designed to be serviced (threads pre-tapped to allow for disassembly & maintenance) should it clog up over time (commonly due to calcification and small lizards getting into the hose).
"What about brass?" you ask! Brass is great, and we use it in many of our connections (from/to pressure washers, tap-splitters, etc). Unfortunately, we have found (and our customers commonly report) that the typical brass quick-connect design still bursts off. This is due to the small grabbers inside being made of plastic and the quick connect design being generally flawed. The Hoselink Bayonet connection simply will not come apart (as demonstrated in the commercial where we tow a truck with the hose and fittings). In addition, brass can calcify over time, where nylon typically does not.
If you have any questions, please post below and I will be quick to respond.
P.S. Yes, I know the sale says 50% off and that it really is a "Buy One Get One Free" (BOGOF), but that's how it was suggested we phrase it for the purposes of click frenzy. Crazy marketing boffins, why can't we just call it what it is?!
EDIT: I just noticed there has been much more interest in our second offer which is 30% off a hose, starter kit and hose hanger - all for $66.45 (FREE DELIVERY). Click the link for details.
EDIT 2: Ozbargainers are asking for a longer hose without a bracket - I recommend seeing the following hose which is on sale and is fantastic:
EDIT 3: This is OzBargain insanity! Thanks for all the great feedback and I promise to get you guys something good in the future exclusive to OzBargain
YET ANOTHER EDIT: I've opened the offers up for a little extra time to give any stragglers a chance to pick it up. That said, when I get into the office this morning, we may need to put a stop to this OzBargain madness. It's good madness, but madness none the less!
