    where the hell can i get long ones? i need 12-15ft. i cant seem to find longer than 8
    (laundry room has spot for washer, spot for dryer. i got a stackable and the washer side of the laundry room has shelves above where it would go.)

    you can always buy 2 pairs and join 2 hoses together with a double threadded coupler in between to make one 16 footer...

    I don't know a whole lot about hoses, but I don't think I'd trust the coupler. When I was younger we had our upstairs neighbors hose burst during a wash and it flooded our entire condo. It took like 2 months to get new carpet and re-do the walls and ceiling.

    Get regular garden hose for the cold. For the hot get commercial grade hose.


    Most people tell me it's a waste of money to use hot water for doing wash anyway. But the fittings are standard like any hose so I don't get what the problem is.

    Cold is fine for most clothes, but your towels and sheets should be done on hot for optimal germ killing.

    Go to Lowe's. They will help you more than Home Depot ever will.

    thanks for the laundry tips...

    i ended up getting a coupler. works fine.

    horseshit. lowe's is for the womens. not that the people will help me more, but lowe's doesn't have as much shit unless you're talking about fancy chandeliers and light switch covers

    Amen. Of course I'm also biased because my dad's second job is at Home Depot, but they have always been more helpful to me than Lowes..at least around in these parts.

    Weird, the Home Depot employees here always look at me like I just asked them how to build a space ship whenever I ask for simple shit.

    Bottom line, In my opinion, is Home Depot does things right, and Lowes does things fancy.

    Your choice.

    they give me that look too with a weird pause, then give me exactly what i need. its awkward and why i hate asking for help there... but they know their shit though.

    stop typing in orange, its obnoxious. no one is impressed

    the help at both places sucks. i went in there and asked if they had hoses and the guy wandered up and down the aisle for a minute and finally i stopped him in front them and he actually said "good job, youre a better employee than me" and walked off...

    I goto Home Depot because its 5 minutes from my house, otherwise i'd goto Menards.

    I guess I look like a thug or something because very rarely do people ask me if I need help, which is good because i know everything already anyways and don't need help. Never been to a Lowes and i'm not gonna start now.

    Thats weird. It's the exact opposite here. Home Depot is so helpful and friendly, they even greet you when you walk in. Lowes is like what you explained.

    The company I used to work for distributed to Menard's..I was beginning to wonder what they were because they don't exist around here.
