Spending a lot on hoses seems like trouble to me.

Here's a thought to consider as part of your investigating this;

Hoses are basically rated for a certain number of pounds per square inch of pressure.

The ones with bad ratings will break super fast. The budget hoses especially are bad.

And part of why they break easy is that a lot of them...even 'the good ones' have good the nylon trash in them and aren't full rubber.

This is why I don't think its a good idea to mess with investing in hoses.

HOWEVER>..

I saw one youtube video that looked interesting where they had some kind of clip on attachment set up. So in the morning they'd bring the hose out with them from the hose and just clip it on. (Not screw on, clip on, with some kind of lip attachment thing.)

This seems worth a try to avoid a frozen hose.

But I don't remember what this was called because I didn't know someone would ask about it 2 days after I saw it.

That was probably a quick connect, like what is used for air hoses, modified for water hoses.
