In some horrible twist of fate, our main spigot sits on the side of our house. Right along the driveway and directly in full sun. That's the standard HOT Virginia summer sun. Never mind the constant cars driving over said hose and occasionally the nozzle that's attached.
So Sunday afternoon (in the middle of a floor home improvement project ) our occasionally variant water pressure decided to surge and blow out yet another hose. Water everywhere. Increased the humidity by 1000% (if that was possible).
So, off to Lowe's to buy yet another hose. Thought I'd gather up the dead hoses and dump them on the way.
This is the one that blew out. Perfect length, but never met a kink it didn't love. Actually lasted since last summer. (It's Virginia. There are really only about 2 months out of the year we don't use a hose for something.) Into the trash with it. (I've got a garden shed full of hose I use for homemade soaker hose, and have sent a bunch over to the farm for my dad to use. No one needs any more. And as far as I know there are no hose craft projects. Correct me if I'm wrong.)
Then this one went - the water pressure blew off the nozzle end of it. (Yes I know about hose menders, it had three of those already. We have a drawer of hose menders.)
