A garden hose is considered by many as one of the most useful equipment when it comes to landscaping. Apart from watering plants and the lawn, it can also be used to wash vehicles on a regular basis.
They are also great items in cleaning up pets and areas outside the house. A garden hose is versatile so it is an excellent tool to have around. In this review, we are going to discuss Legacy Manufacturing’s HFZG550YWS Flexzilla 5 Garden Hose.

- Is resistant to abrasion
- Capable of lying flat and winding/unwinding effortlessly
- Has 150 PSI operating pressure
- Is drinking water safe
- Includes leakage-resistant O-ring
- Has anodized aircraft-grade aluminum male and female couplings

The Legacy HFZG550YWS Flexzilla 5 Garden Hose is a model that is resistant to kinks, twisting, tangling, and leaking due to its prime construction and quality materials. It has zero-memory which permits it to be laid flat and it makes rolling and unrolling the hose an easy task to do.
You can lay it flat on the ground and it will not work against you while doing your chores or winding them up in place after each use. The hose also promises to work properly in every weather condition, even during those extra-sunny months and sub-zero seasons.
One great thing about this model, apart from its superior hybrid polymer composition, reliable O-ring, and solid aluminum fittings, is its higher PSI working pressure. This means it can manage high-pressure systems with every use.
It is also sufficiently flexible, which makes it easier to store and deal with. And if you have pets around, or want to have a safer hose for drinking purposes, this hose is harmless due to its drinking-water safe feature. There are plenty of positives about this hose that we have observed online; many praised the product’s ability to take on higher water pressures, its quality construction, and durability.
Customers who bought the hose like that it is lightweight, flexible and effortless to manage. Let’s just say that its dependable structure is due to its hybrid polymer build. It is made with a bend restrictor as well so that the hose is left with zero memory.
Lay it on a flat surface and it will not spring back to you. At the same time, you can easily coil the hose to wind it up for storage. Because of its quality build, it is manageable, durable, and will last you for a long time.
We have noticed that the hose was also not prone to abrasion, which is a good thing since who likes a garden hose that gets holes easily? The kink-resistant aspect of the hose has a ribbed internal core that also prevents the hose from tangling and twisting during use, so you won’t have to deal with such issues while watering or cleaning.
The male and female fittings of the hose, meanwhile, are composed of breakage-resistant aircraft-grade aluminum so do not expect this hose’s fittings to be damaged easily. The O-ring is also of higher quality and offers a sturdier enclosure to avoid leakage where the hose links to the spigot. Lastly, everyone liked that the product has a limited lifetime warranty as well.
While the HFZG550YWS Flexzilla 5 did have its positive feedback, it was not safe from complaints as well. There were a few customers who noticed that the hose twisted at times when not in use, and frequent exposure to the sun faded its bright color. The product’s weight was also a bit heavy for some at 8 pounds.
The Legacy HFZG550YWS Flexzilla 5 Garden Hose is actually worth the purchase price despite some customers’ reservations about the product.
In our experiences, the product did its job quite well and it was light enough to carry. It is made from high-quality materials, was easy to deal with during use, and it is drinking-water safe as well. Worth trying out and buying.
