Seems like everything I buy from Lowes is nothing but junk. In the last few years I have bought a bench grinder, air compressor and numerous other items.
The bench grinder and the air compressor lasted less than a year before they quit working. I bought flouresent tubes that lasted for a week or two. Last week I bought a water hose from Lowes. This morning while washing the decks off, the water hose developed a bulge in it and a big gaping hole opened up.
It's pretty bad when you can't trust Lowes quality for something as simple as a garden hose. I don't buy their cheaper quality. I normally buy their top of the line model.
Evidently they only stock the very cheapest imported *** they can get. So long Lowes, I am going back to Sears!!!!
