        Ray&Joie October 17 The noodles are thicker then the insulation you buy also better protection of your hose

      See spot run RV October 17 I just purchased 2 pipe insulation at the hardware store about 3 weeks ago for $2.29 each. Pool noodles are a good choice to so check prices in your area.

      BLSMSS October 17 Depending on size of noodles, dollar tree ones seem small, will have to check it, thank you

      Tink Freedom October 17 Thanks for sharing this tip

      LarandSus October 17 If wanting to do this, check the inside diameter of the noodle to ensure the hose will fit inside and be completely wrapped.

      Mike and Donna Wagner October 17 Also - most stores don't carry pool noodles in the winter - so if you're wanting to do this it would be wise to shop for them in the summer. ~Donna

        Bandit455 October 23 I just saw a Dollar General with CRATES of noodles out front for $1! I thought about picking up a 1/2 dozen for other uses, mostly padding for things like my kayak rack etc...

      SouthParkSteve October 17 If you are going to be in a REALLY cold climate (says the person from the mountains of Colorado....), you should consider buying a heat tape as well.  Wrap the heat tape around the hose (try to keep the wraps about an inch or so apart) before putting...  more

        Mike and Donna Wagner October 17 Steve should know - he lives at an altitude of over 10,000 feet in the mountains of Colorado. I would say better safe than sorry if you will be camped for any length of time in extreme weather. ~Donna

        rvericksons October 17 Bite the bullet and buy a heated hose if u are in freezing areas.
        Love my Pirit hose. Insulation will only delay (not prevent) freezing.

      NW Kathy B October 17 I discovered that quite by accident because I bought a pool noodles or something else I was just like water hose insulation. Thanks for sharing

      John And Debbie Maxson October 18 Thanks for the information. Always good to look outside the box

      Drifter October 18 In severe heat noodles protect your water hose from cooking/burning by the suns UV and you getting scalded by the cold water faucet. Most stores consider Noodles and kiddie pools as seasonal items even in Palm Springs CA and AZ where it is 3 digit ...  more

      Bandit455 October 18 If I am in freezing temps, I just have the fresh hose out to fill my tank and then put it away. Heated basement keeps tanks from freezing and I don’t have to buy a $100 water hose...

      Yank October 22 Used these for a while now when I lived in TX but in PA now and hope they still work as well. Always keep a few on hand when they go on sale in the summer. Great for lots of things and very inexpensive ($.99 a piece)
