A hose is a flexible hollow tube designed to carry fluids from one location to another. Hoses are also sometimes called pipes (the word pipe usually refers to a rigid tube, whereas a hose is usually a flexible one), or more generally tubing.
A pipe is a round tubular to distribute fluids and gases, designated by a nominal pipe size that represents a rough indication of the pipe conveyance capacity.A tube is a round, rectangular, squared or oval hollow section measured by outside diameter and wall thickness. A good garden hose should last five to ten years, but many home owners replace a hose every ear or two because of leaks, cracks or rot. How to prolong the life of your hoses? Do not buy an extra-long hose.
