The Forever Steel Hose 304 Stainless Steel Garden Hose is manufactured from 16 mm 304 stainless steel. The hose has a unique flex-ridged design with nickel and chromium structural properties that makes it highly resistant to corrosion. It has a length of 25 – 50 ft, and it weighs around 5.0 lbs per 50 ft. It claims to be lightweight, flexible, kink-free, rust-proof, and resistant to tearing and UV rays.
The hose is constructed with nickel and chromium elements giving it a longer lifespan. It promises to last longer than any other metal garden hoses in the market. It also has steel fittings, not brass. It’s an ultra flexible steel hose with a 5/8-inch inner hose diameter and a spray hose nozzle.

Features of the Hercules Hose
Unlike other hoses that are offering up to 100 ft in length, the Forever Steel Hose is available in lengths of 25 ft and 50 ft only. It doesn’t offer much length compared to its competitors.
Compact and Lightweight
The hose weighs an estimated 5.0 lbs per 50 ft. It’s a tad lighter than other hoses in the market. It’s perfect for portability.
The Forever Steel Hose is made from 304 stainless steel, an extremely durable element. It also has chromium and nickel properties that make it highly resistant to corrosion and rusting. It has a unique flex-ridge design that is ultra flexible and can handle high amounts of pressure. The nickel and chromium elements also make it easily a long-lasting garden hose because of its extended lifespan compared to other garden hoses in the market.
The inner tube is lined with PVC offering sufficient flexibility. It’s flexible enough for easy rolling, but is very prone to tangling if not kept in a straight line when in use. The tangling also raises issues with water pressure output.
The hose claims to have a 5/8-inch diameter for its inner tube, but the outer tube is roughly ¼-inch in diameter so the claim raises a lot of questions. Somehow, the narrow circumference of the hose limits the flow of water.
Resistant to UV Rays
One of the best features of the Forever Steel Hose is its resistance to inclement weather conditions and UV rays. Because of the hose’s nickel and chromium structural properties, it’s highly resistant to corrosion and rusting. Its properties also make it a little tolerant to UV rays, preventing the tubes to contract/expand and the metal to heat up when exposed to the sun.
- Lightweight and portable
- Nickel and Chromium elements
- Longer lifespan
- Corrosion and rust proof
- Resistance to UV rays
- Length: 25 ft and 50 ft only
- Prone to tangling
- Steel connectors are hard to adjust
- Prone to Leaks
The Forever Steel Hose has a longer lifespan compared to other garden hoses. It has better corrosion and rus
t resistance compared to other hoses too. The metal exterior also proved to be highly tolerant to the sun’s UV rays. But, it has questionable claims like the issue regarding the hose circumference and the leak problems from the steel connectors, which are really hard to adjust and work with as well. Despite that, the Forever Steel Garden Hose is the type of hose that can last you a lot of years.
