What I meant was they never intended for you to have the outlet end of
the hose completely shut off thereby building up full mains pressure
for the entire length of the hose. When you have a nozzle on the end
of a hose you don't have mains pressure in the hose, you have
substantially less, probably rarely more then 30 psi, not the likely
60+ psi you get with it shut off. I don't doubt that it's overall a
crappy hose that's not going to last long, just saying it wasn't
intended to be subjected to that kind of pressure, particularly
without the outer sheath on it.
