Way too expensive for my wallet. I can take a standard hose, some heater tape and foam insulation and be better off for a lower cost.

Yes Ken, they are a bit expensive. However, if they work well...and will last more than 3 months, then I think I would like to have one. I'm hoping that some of the members here have first hand knowledge about this brand. I know that some of these hoses have major quality issues.

Most reports I've seen on them have them failing after a short time.

Someone reported on one here and it failed after a short time. Might try the search engine.

Yes it does say farm use in this link...can't get the right link. They have one made for RV use. It's actually Orange in color.

Looks like I may need to keep searching

I took standard drinking water hose, wrapped it in tinfoil, then coiled the heater element around the hose, and wrapped in split pipe insulation secured with duct tape. This worked fine several times last year in 20 degree weather. I plan to use this winter again.. I hope this helps.

Have use the Pirit hose. Works fine and I think worth the money. Yes, I can wrap a standard hose with heater tape and insulation. Last time I looked at the local Lowes, by the time I purchased the heater tape and insulation for a 25 foot hose, I had two thirds the cost of the Pirit hose. Have not had any problems with the hose.

They have had problems in the past with the Thermostat. They have now fixed that issue, but unfortunately many of the older models are still on the market. If you go to their website, you can see images of the new version there, with the new thermostat.

Maybe that was one of the models I had -- I returned mine after it failed to work.

I'm trying Conrad next time:

Have a 25 foot Pirit RV hose and have had no problems with it. If you are parked for an extended time you can use insulation on a regular hose(like I use to do) but this hose is handier, especially when traveling and the temps get below freezing. I carry bubble wrap to put around campground water facet and my pressure regulator. Found the Pirit on Amazon for about $85 last year.
