Heated Hose - Why Do You Need One?
Freezing temperatures are right around the corner and now is the time to prepare. For years we have recommend removing and storing your outdoor hose – check out our new “heated hose”. Heated hoses solve the problem of delivering water outdoors in temperatures below freezing. Yardiac’s thermostatically controlled hose has a 92" 120-volt electrical cord set attached, which activates a heating element built into the hose. Plug in hose when needed and unplug when finished. Thermostatically controlled heating element turns on if the ambient temperature is below 95°F and shuts off at 105°F. The heating element heats whenever the hose is plugged in. Frozen water in the hose thaws within 5 to 10 minutes (depending on the temperature) when plugged back in. • Ideal for watering animals once per day. • Excellent choice for promoting seed germination • Radiant Heating makes it idea melting ice and snow.
