Today’s invention is a new type of garden hose.
This would be made of quarter-circles of stiff tube(a bit like parts of a hula-hoop).
These would be joined together by plumbing stab-joints, which, once sealed together, allow free rotation of one quarter circle relative to the next.
The hose would thus be storable as a flat spiral of say 1m in diameter -without the usual tangles and damage caused by crimping.
It could access anywhere in a garden just by making the right selection of rotations and would also provide pretty much the same pressure drop -irrespective of its present layout.
If you wanted to lengthen or shorten your hose, it would just be a matter of adding or removing quadrants.
