About Dap XHose Pro

Dap XHose Pro bills itself as “The Professional Quality Xpanding Hose”. Like its predecessor the original blue XHose, they say it’s strong yet lightweight, will expand up to 3 times its size, and will not twist, tangle, or kink. This “Pro” version is black, has brass fittings, a 3/4” diameter, and they claim it can withstand 250 PSI.

XHose Pro (and XHose) is brought to you by National Express, Inc., a direct marketing company that has been in business since 1981, and they claim the XHoses are one of its top-selling products. The company is BBB-accredited and currently receives and A+ rating.

How the Dap XHose Works

Michael Berardi, who claims to be the inventor of the original XHose introduces the allegedly upgraded product in the infomercial. He claims the XHose Pro has solid brass fittings and is 3/4” diameter (the original is 1/2” and uses plastic) and uses even stronger materials then the original, although he fails to specify further. Both versions are said to use an expandable inner hose inside a folded covering of super-strong webbing. (The XHose Pro boasts it’s strong enough to pull an SUV.)

To use XHose Pro, attach to any outdoor faucet. Turn on the water and they claim the XHose Pro will automatically expand up to 3 times its length and give you a powerful stream of up to 250 PSI. Then, when you are done, turn off the faucet and they say XHose will shrink back to its compact size in seconds.

They brag because of its patented design, Dap XHose Pro will never kink. (They caution to beware of imitations and list the patent numbers in case you wanted to look them up yourself.)

The XHose Pro seems to be geared towards professional use, with a man who claims to be a car detailer touting its benefits for his line of work.  However, another unnamed man claims the XHose Pro “helps” his elderly companion (who may be his mother) use it to water plants.

They say a 50 ft 3/4” Dap XHose weighs about 2 lbs, as opposed to a regular hose of the same dimensions which is said to weigh up to 11.

XHose Pro includes:

  • Dap XHose Pro (25, 50, or 75 ft)
  • Second Dap XHose Pro “free” (extra handling fees)
  • 90 day money back guarantee

Dap XHose Pro Pricing, Shipping, and Returns

Dap XHose Pro sells for $29.95 for 25 ft, $49.95 for 50 ft, or $69.95 for 75 ft plus $8.95, $9.95, or $10.95 S & H respectively. You have the option to order “2 for 1” but they double the appropriate S & H fees. They ask you allow 2-4 weeks for delivery. When you do receive your XHose(s), you have 90 days to try. If they do not live up to your expectations, return (you pay postage) and they will refund your money, minus S & H.

Bottom Line: Is Dap XHose a Scam?

The concept of a collapsable, storable, powerful hose is appealing to homeowners and professionals, well as those that own RVs or boats. As a result, there are many different brands of these so-called “incredible” hoses in the marketplace. However, most of them, including the XHose Pro don’t seem to live up to their promises. According to many customers that have bought the XHose Pro (as well as the original version), it leaks, rips, bursts, or splits within a short time frame. We suggest you do your research before buying this (or any) expandable hose.

  • This is a piece of junk (and an interesting SCAM)

    • Casselberry, FL,
    • Sep 13, 2015

    This hose failed right from the start. It leaked from one end to the other, and getting a refund is impossible because the warranty on the package refers you to another company "Gilmour", who know nothing about this hose.

    Then, Gilmour simply refers you to an XHOSE website that has no phone number. Pretty slick…

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Xhose Pro Junk

    • Florida,
    • Jul 20, 2015

    This company must get almost all of the hoses the sell returned since they are truly junk. I purchased the package and received two black hoses and one blue hose. Both black hoses burst the first time they where used right out of the package. The Blue one has held up but I have only used it once. The company wants you to return the damaged hose in order to get a replacement hose. You end up having to pay return postage for a hose that will most likely break again when you try to use it.

    The customer service people tell you that you can not use the hose at full blast or it will rupture. This means you have to turn on the water pressure very low and then open the spray end of the hose to let out water and then go and open the pressure all the way while letting the water out at the same time. You then have to turn down the pressure before closing the spray end of the hose to make sure the hose does not burst. You have to follow this procedure every time you intend to use the hose at full pressure. If this procedure is not done the hose will burst at the end where the hose is joined to the brass fitting. Why would anyone want a hose like this. 

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I've been hosed.

    • Sandusky, OH,
    • Jul 4, 2015

    Our sixth hose just blew. This is why it takes so long to get your original order, they are manufacturing replacements. We were desperate to finish our watering so we went to a local garden center and purchased a 75' which blew as soon as we turned it on. We tried to get a replace my hose and they told us every hose sold CE back so they would only refund our money. Great concept, too bad they did not perfect the technology before they made it available to consumers.

  • Pros and Cons of XHOSE Pro

    • Newport News, VA,
    • Jul 4, 2015

    I have ordered and received 350 feet of XHOSE Pro about 12 months ago and started using them this spring. By early June I had 125 feet of usable hose left. The first hose busted about three minutes after applying water pressure. I called their customer service on 4/19 and they told me they would send a new hose. It is now the end of July and still no replacement hose.

    I pulled out about three feet of the inside expanding part of the busted hose and it had little pricks all over it. I also did the same to one of the other hoses that burst and it had the same defects. It appears there is a quality control problem. I did not call about the other hoses that burst because I felt like their response would be like their first. Say they are going to do something but do nothing. Pros-Very light weight and easy to handle Cons- Hose will not hold up under constant water pressure. Quality control problem.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Not Happy . Still trying to get an exchange, want My $50 back

    • Chicago,
    • Jul 2, 2015

    I decided to buy this when watching a commercial and thinking "too good to be true". Wish I had headed my own warning. Straight from the box, I replaced my existing rubber hose and turned on the water only to discover the inner hose had apparently been twisted during the manufacturing process.

    Best way to describe is to Picture one of those balloons a clown makes balloon animals out of - twisted in the middle. The water dribbled out with half the hose fully inflated and half shriveled up. There was no way to untwist the inner balloon.

    The return process was ridiculous and I still don't have a replacement nor my money back. My advice: Stick to an Ace original rubber hose.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    DAP XHose disaster

    • Las Vegas, NV,
    • Jul 1, 2015

    I love the idea of the XHose Pro, the fact that it is light weight and does not take up a lot of room, however, we purchased two and neither one of them lasted 90 days. One almost immediately begin leaking around the fitting. The second one worked for about two months and then just exploded like a balloon. We had purchased a few imitations before. They broke also but lasted longer than the "real" X- Hose. I hope the manufacturers can perfect the product because it is a great idea. 

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
