  • Warranty: 2-Year

General Product Information

The first hose on our list is the Titan Metal Garden Hose which is a heavily reviewed hose with most ratings coming in pretty positive. The hose comes in 5 sizes which is definitely an advantage. You can choose the 15, 25, 50, 75, or 100 footer. Most garden hoses will have their minimum manufacturer length at 25 ft actually. The largest you will generally see is a 100-foot garden hose.

The hose is ultra-lightweight. Obviously, the weight depends on what size you get. But the lightest (15 ft) is 2.55 lbs and the heaviest (100 ft) is 11.07 lbs. That is seriously light for a metal garden hose. Its light weight also makes the hose very flexible. You won’t have trouble carrying it or dragging it around trees, bushes, or other obstacles.

The hose has an inner diameter of 1/2-inches which is standard for good water pressure. Usually, I see most hoses have 5/8″ inner diameter which gives better pressure actually, but 1/2″ is still great. You can get a maximum 250 PSI working pressure which is great for power-washing your cars, home, patio etc.

The stainless steel is 304 graded which is the better stainless steel. 304 stainless steel is completely corrosion and rust proof and is less electrically conductive than other types.

Performance Features

The stainless steel enclosure makes the hose very reliable and resilient. It’s completely weatherproof – both anti-freeze and anti-heat. So if you live in a city with extremely hot temperatures, you don’t have to worry about your hose melting like a rubber hose. On the contrary, if you live in an area with very cold winters, you actually don’t have to store the hose away. It will still function if it’s put in a block of ice.

A good-quality stainless steel hose that is flexible like this one will not kink. It’s pretty much impossible as the hose will just coil back into regular position so you don’t have to worry about your water flow being interrupted. Even if you do want to store the hose, it will easily coil into proper position so you can effectively do so.

The hose is pretty much leak-free. The hose will not puncture and is dog chew proof so you will not run into leaks from the hose itself. As for the aluminum connectors, you just have to make sure they are connected properly as well as the rubber washers so you won’t have a single leak. But that’s pretty easy. The connectors are also crush-resistant.

The adjustable brass nozzle is probably my favorite part about this hose. First off, they give you an extra one. It’s a 360 degree spraying nozzle which is really simple to use. You have quick control over various water flow patterns and water volume selections. You can change from a nice mist to a power stream within seconds.

30-Day Money Back Guarantee

Titan will give you a full refund no questions asked within 30 days if you are not satisfied with their hose. The hose also has a 2-year warranty for any manufacturing defects.

2) Specilite Stainless Steel Garden Hose

Product Specifications:
  • Manufacturer: SPECILITE
  • Weight: 5.5 lbs
  • Hose Length: 50-feet
  • Color: Stainless Steel & Green
  • Inner Diameter: 5/8″
  • Performance Features:
    • Rust-Proof
    • 10-Feature Spray Nozzle (green)
    • 304 Stainless Steel
    • Kink & Leak-Free
    • Rubber Gasket on each Fitting
  • Warranty: 1-Year

General Product Information

The second reviewed metal hose on our list is the SPECILITE Garden Hose. This one is considerably cheaper than the Titan but less popular. This hose unfortunately only comes in the one size: 50-feet. If you have a large yard, then I would recommend getting a different hose that comes in 100 ft. You may have to connect two hoses with the 50-footer if you can’t get it to reach where you need it to.

This one is also ultra-lightweight and extremely flexible. It is only 5.5 lbs so you won’t have any problems hoisting it around or dragging it around your yard. For a 50 footer, 5 lbs is extremely lightweight.

The inner diameter is slightly larger than the Titan coming in at 5/8″. As stated above, you can get excellent water pressure with a 5/8″ ID, definitely strong enough to wash your car or deck & patio, especially with the nozzle that comes with the “JET” feature.

Lastly, the stainless steel on this one is also 304 so your hose will not be able to rust nor corrode.

Performance Features

The hose is durable and resilient since it is made out of good stainless steel. I would say it is less robust than the Titan listed above however. It will definitely be extremely difficult to puncture through it still. But as for weather elements, I would recommend storing it away during the extreme cold and extreme heat. The lowest working temperature is 14℉ to the highest working temperature of 122℉.

The hose is kink and leak-free. Due to its light weight and flexibility, it will just coil back into proper position even if you purposely tried to kink it. Each end is sealed with a rubber gasket ensuring the hose cannot leak.

The sprayer nozzle is very convenient. There are 10 different options (shower, cone, jet, soaker, angle, mist, 1/2vert, center, full, flat) making watering extremely easy. Like all these types of nozzles, just rotate the bezel to switch the function. The ends are also inter-connectable so attaching another hose or attaching a different nozzle head is simple.

Lastly, you have a 12-month warranty for any manufacturing defects. Overall, this is a cheap, good-quality metal hose that will get the job done.

3) Bionic Steel PRO Garden Hose

bionic steel pro garden hose

Product Specifications:
  • Manufacturer: E Mishan & Sons
  • Weight: 3 lbs (50ft) or 6 lbs (100ft)
  • Hose Length: 50 or 100-feet
  • Color: Stainless Steel & Gold
  • Inner Diameter: 5/8″
  • Performance Features:
    • Interlocking Flex Design
    • Brass Crush-Resistant Fittings
    • Stabilizer Collar
    • 304 Stainless Steel
    • Kink & Leak-Free
    • Weatherproof (heat-resistant & ice-resistant)
  • Warranty: Contact Manufacturer Directly

General Product Information

The Bionic Steel PRO Garden Hose is one of my favorite metal hoses. This is the newer model (2019) with better upgrades. You can get it either as a 50 footer or 100 footer. If you have an average to larger sized property, then I recommend the 100ft one just to be safe.

It’s another extremely lightweight hose. Both sizes are incredibly light for a metal garden hose which makes carrying it and dragging it around that much easier. Like the two above, the Bionic Steel hose is also constructed with 304 stainless steel which will not rust and is not electrically conductive.

The inner diameter is 5/8″ which gives efficient pressure, strong enough for general garden watering as well as power-washing your vehicles, outdoor furniture, or deck & patio.

Performance Features

This is probably the most durable and resilient hose on this list. It has been thoroughly tested. You can run it over with your truck, light it on fire, freeze it in a block of ice and it will still function perfectly. It is extremely difficult to puncture. You can drag it along any jaded surface and it will not puncture and leak. It has actually been tested by rigorously brushing it against a cacti and there was no damage.

This one has crush-resistant brass fittings both male and female threaded which makes connecting it to any faucet or to another hose nice and simple. There is also a stabilizer collar that gives extra protection against strain.

The hose is ultra-flexible and so it will easily coil back into position if you tried to kink it. It will actually still fully work if you tie a bunch of knots into it anyways. The manufactures constructed the hose with an interlocking flex design which makes it more maneuverable than the average hose. It’s also completely weather-proof (anti-heat & anti-ice). So you really do not have to store it away, but if you are make sure you store your garden hose properly.

Overall, this is a strongly recommended selection. If you are looking for a metal hose that has great longevity, then this is your top pick.

4) Forever Steel Garden Hose

forever steel garden hose

Product Specifications:
  • Manufacturer: Inventel Products
  • Weight: 4.4 lbs
  • Hose Length: 50-feet
  • Color: Stainless Steel & Black
  • Inner Diameter: 1/4″
  • Performance Features:
    • Ultra-Flexibility
    • Weatherproof (anti-heat & anti-freeze)
    • 304 Stainless Steel
    • Kink & Leak-Free
    • Animal-Proof
  • 30-Day Money Back Guarantee

General Product Information

Personally, I wouldn’t pick this one. It’s a good-quality hose, extremely durable and resilient and will last you a very long time. But the pressure output is the only problem. It has an inner diameter of 1/4″ which is extremely small and so the hose would only be good for general watering purposes. It would not be effective with power-washing your car or patio furniture.

So if you want a stainless steel hose for all purposes (watering & cleaning) then I would recommend choosing one of the other options.

Regardless, here are some tips to increase garden hose water pressure if you find you need a higher PSI output from your hose.

The Forever Steel Hose is 50 ft long and weighs 4.4 lbs which is extremely light. You won’t have any issues with carrying or dragging the hose around. It is constructed with heavy-duty 304 stainless steel like our other recommended hoses. Therefore, it will not rust or corrode.

Performance Features

Due to its light weight and small diameter, the hose is ultra-flexible. This is probably the most flexible hose on this list. It is manufactured with a flex ridge design with user-maneuverability in mind. If your yard/garden is filled with bushes, trees, and other obstacles, then this is a good selection.

As for kinking or tangling, you won’t run into any problems. Regardless, if the hose is bent or tangled the water will still come through normally. You will usually see this with every metal garden hose.

The 304 stainless steel is durable enough that your dog won’t be able to chew through it nor will you be able to cut it. It has been tested. Therefore, the hose itself will not leak as it is extremely difficult to puncture through the metal. However, make sure the fittings are attached properly to your spigots to prevent leaks from the ends.

It is also completely weatherproof. You really don’t have to store this one away either. In the extreme heat – the hose will remain cool and in the extreme cold – the hose cannot freeze.

30-Day Money Back Guarantee

Like the Titan Metal Garden Hose, the Forever Steel Hose always offers you your money back guarantee within 30 days of purchase if you are not satisfied with the product for any reason.

Overall, I do like this hose. It is similar to the others on this list except for the fact that the inner diameter (ID) is a lot smaller and so your PSI will be lower. Personally, that is too much of a deal-breaker for me as I would be using my garden hose to power-wash my car and patio. However on the plus side, this hose is really flexible and so easy to maneuver. So if you need a hose just to water your garden or flowers, then I like this option.

5) Morvat Stainless Steel Garden Hose

morvat stainless steel garden hose

Product Specifications:
  • Manufacturer: Morvat
  • Weight: 11.9 lbs (100ft) or 16.8 lbs (150ft)
  • Hose Length: 100 or 150-feet
  • Color: Stainless Steel & Black
  • Inner Diameter: 1/2″
  • Performance Features:
    • 10-Feature Spray Nozzle
    • Metal Hose Hanger
    • Quick Release Lever
    • 304 Stainless Steel
    • Weatherproof (anti-cold & anti-heat)
    • Animal-Proof
    • Kink & Leak-Free
  • Satisfaction Guaranteed

General Product Information

Next on our list is the Morvat Stainless Steel Hose. This one is pretty heavy-duty. It comes in either 100-feet or 150-feet which is surprising. Most hose maximum lengths will be manufactured at 100 feet. So if you have an extra large property, go with the 150 footer and you won’t be disappointed.

The fittings are standard and easily connectable to another standard sized hose if you need to connect two hoses together.

This hose is heavier than the others. The 100 footer is approximately 12 lbs and the 150 footer is approximately 17 lbs. This is still pretty light for a stainless steel hose.

The inner diameter is 1/2″ which again gives good enough water pressure for general gardening purposes as well as power-washing your vehicles, outdoor furniture, patio & deck. Lastly, it is constructed with 304 stainless steel like all the others which prevents it from rusting and corroding.

Performance Features

Like the Specilite Garden Hose, the Morvat comes with a 10-feature spray nozzle. You just rotate the dial to switch the function which ranges from a light mist to jet power.

Since the hose is considerably longer and heavier than most of the others on this list, the flexibility and maneuverability isn’t as good. Don’t get me wrong, the hose is still flexible and easier to maneuver than most traditional rubber hoses. You won’t have any issues avoiding obstacles and what not. Just there are more flexible options on this list that are shorter however.

Its durability has been tested thoroughly. It has been run over with a truck and remained in perfect condition. As such, it is seemingly difficult to puncture the hose. The hose will still work normally even if you tied knots in it or purposely tangled or kinked it.

It is weatherproof. You can leave it out in the extreme heat or cold and it will not melt or freeze. The weatherproof aspect is great for a heavier hose like this one since you don’t have to store it away because storing it may be more difficult than others.

Additionally, the hose comes with a metal hose hanger where you can efficiently hang your hose when it is not in use. It also comes with a quick release lever right before the fitting of the hose end which allows you to connect and disconnect the nozzle easier than unscrewing it.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

Morvat states that if you’re not completely satisfied with your hose then contact them and they’ll do everything they can to make it right. They do not state a maximum day within purchase you can do this. So to me it sounds like they’ll try to give you a replacement first before trying to give you your money back right away. Would I say this satisfaction guarantee is “money back no questions asked?” Doesn’t sound like it.

Overall though, this is a great quality hose. It’s the most robust and durable on this list and so will last you literally a lifetime. It is pretty much indestructible from any outside element or force.

6) TheFitLife Metal Garden Hose

thefitlife metal garden hose

Product Specifications:
  • Manufacturer: TheFitLife
  • Weight: 2.5, 5.0, 7.5, 10 lbs (25, 50, 75, 100-feet)
  • Hose Length: 25, 50, 75, or 100-feet
  • Color: Stainless Steel & Black
  • Inner Hose Diameter: 5/8″
  • Performance Features:
    • Inter-Connecting Design
    • Spiroshield Technology
    • 304 Stainless Steel
    • Kink & Leak-Free
    • Weatherproof (anti-heat & anti-cold)
    • 8-Feature Spray Nozzle
    • Rubber Gasket on Fitting
  • 180-Day Money Back Guarantee

General Product Information

The final hose that makes our list is TheFitLife Metal Garden Hose. This is a really good-priced stainless steel hose. You have the option of choosing 4 hose lengths (25, 50, 75, 100-feet). The hose has a solid interconnecting design which makes connecting two together particularly easy. There is a standard 3/4″ female threaded connector that allows a simple connection to your spigot or faucet.

Like all the other hoses, this one is also constructed with durable 304 stainless steel so you don’t need to worry about it rusting or corroding in any weather element. The weights differ depending on what size you need but they are all considerably lightweight (see above).

The inner diameter is 5/8″ which gives great water pressure, definitely enough for your general gardening needs as well as power-washing your yard stuff (furniture, deck, patio) and your vehicles.

Performance Features

The spray nozzle has 8 features (full, flat, mist, soaker, cone, jet, angled, shower) which is pretty standard. Just rotate the bezel to alter the function. The nozzle grip is constructed with non-slip rubber padding for a more comfortable and efficient use. The end is equipped with a rubber gasket which makes the connection from the hose to the nozzle completely leak-free.

The fittings of the hose are aluminum and crush-resistant. With the durable 304 stainless steel manufacture process, the hose is durable and resilient to exterior elements such as punctures from thorns. It is also UV resistant so the hose will not get hot in the extreme heat and will remain cool to touch. The outer shell is built to last with the enhanced spiroshield technology which ultimately increases the lifespan of the hose.

The lowest and highest working temperature is -5℃ & 98℃. Therefore, I would recommend storing this hose away if you live in an area with very cold winters.

As for kinking and tangling, like all the other hoses on our list you will not have to worry about this. Metal hoses are superior at not kinking and tangling because their material development and construction physique makes it quite impossible. They will just flop back into proper position. Even if it does tangle or become knotted, it will still function completely fine because the diameter of a metal hose cannot be pushed in like a rubber hose.

Overall, the hose is very affordable for a metal garden hose. It is lightweight, flexible, durable, and will last you many years to come.

180-Day Satisfaction Guarantee

The manufacturer states that they will offer 180 days 100% risk-free satisfaction guarantee. That is pretty darn good. Most hoses will offer 30-day money back guarantee.

Stainless Steel Garden Hose Buyer’s Guide

multiple steel hoses

So now we’ll get into a brief buying guide on what really to look for when buying a stainless steel garden hose. We won’t go too far into detail as many of the things to look for are the same when purchasing any garden hose for your backyard. To view a very comprehensive guide, take a look at this garden hose buying guide that outlines every possible detail you should know.

You Must Get 304 Stainless Steel!

I already talked about this a bit above. Make sure your garden hose is constructed with 304 stainless steel. This means the steel is good quality. 304 stainless steel cannot rust or corrode and is less electrically conductive. Usually, it is less common to find a home appliance or tool especially for the outdoors that is not made with 304 stainless steel. A very good trick to test this out is to put a magnet on the steel. If it doesn’t stick, then you have 304 stainless steel which is what you want.

304 stainless steel is also considerably more durable and robust than other steels. It is extremely difficult to puncture or tear through it which prevents leaks with these types of hoses. The only problem people have with their metal hose leaking is usually at the connection between the fitting and the faucet. Make sure this connection is secure and appropriately fitted. Moreover, its construction makes it UV resistant so the hose will not get hot in the extreme heat.

Are Stainless Steel Hoses Heavy?

This is surprising to some but a lot of manufactured stainless steel hoses are lighter than your traditional rubber hoses. You would think that since the hose is metal it would be considerably heavy. Don’t get me wrong, some are actually pretty heavy but we refrained from listing any metal hose that is heavier than usual. It also depends on the length of your hose. I would not get any stainless steel hose that is over 20 lbs no matter the length.

A lightweight hose is imperative to have good flexibility and maneuverability. You also don’t want your hose to be so heavy that it is damaging your plants, bushes, or trees when you drag it around. One that can be carried and dragged around with ease and interweave between obstacles easily is what you want. A lot of stainless steel hoses are very flexible due to their flex ridge designs.

Will My Stainless Steel Hose Kink?

Everyone wants a hose that doesn’t kink easily. I mean why would you want a hose that kinks. You see this all the time with traditional rubber hoses. However, rubber hoses manufactured in the present day are becoming a lot better with avoiding kinks.

With stainless steel garden hoses, it is pretty much impossible for the hose to kink. The manufacture development of stainless steel grade makes it this way. Try it! The hose will literally just flop back or coil into proper position so it doesn’t kink. You know when you try to expand a rubber garden hose in a straight line and you have multiple kinks, this cannot happen with a good-quality metal hose. Even if a metal hose does tangle or you tie it into multiple knots, the water will still come out fine because the diameter of the hose cannot dent in since it is made out of metal.

Since the diameter of a rubber hose shrinks when it is kinked or tangled, this is what stops the water flow. A stainless steel hose cannot be dented in and so no matter what happens to it, your water flow will not be interrupted.

The Inner Diameter of Your Hose Matters

So this applies to any garden hose and I always include it in my articles because it’s very important for understanding the water pressure of your hose. The larger inner diameter your hose has means the stronger the water pressure will be.

Generally, I say go with 1/2″ or 5/8″ inner diameter (ID). This will give you efficient water pressure, enough for your general watering purposes as well as power-washing your car and patio. Anything smaller than that I would only recommend if you want a hose just for watering your flowers and other plants.

Is My Stainless Steel Garden Hose Safe to Drink Out Of?

It depends really. If it is 100% safe, the manufacturer will state that it is NSF or FDA certified safe drinking water. A lot of manufacturers will say their hoses are safe to drink out of but if it does not specifically say NSF or FDA certified, then I would not trust it. Take a look if your hose produces safe drinking water in this article which goes really in-depth.

Final Thoughts

I hope you enjoyed these reviews of our recommended stainless steel garden hoses. The most important thing you want with a garden hose is a good lifespan and extending the life of the hose as much as possible. These good-quality stainless steel hoses will provide you with great longevity.
