Same as others have said...bought a pricier one, no problems after a couple years of use. Like having it the trailer since it is very light and shrinks to a small size thats easy for storing. We only use them for black tank flush and general purpose, not for fresh water.

I think the black one is the better one. I use the green one for +- 2 years. It works fine but it always seems like it's just about to break.

I've had 2 green ones. Both sprung leaks at the nozzle end within a year.

If you still have them, you can repair them.

I took the first one back and exchanged under store warranty. Tried to repair the second with metal fitting. Was so proud with warm fuzzy feeling.... right up until the moment the nozzle came off in my hand and I got a cold shower.

Have had 2 Green, 1 Blue and on my 2nd Black. Once that one goes, I am done - back to Sears for my lifetime guarantee hoses. All of them blew the inner liner.

I picked up one of those shrinky green hoses at Walgreens last year. Second time I used it, I went to screw it into the faucet on the house and snapped the cheap, black plastic connector right in two...out $20!! (They are a POC)
