HARMON: To crimp or not to crimp

I don’t claim to be a consumer affairs expert, but I did buy one of those hoses that curl up like an accordion when you turn off the water. The expert on television told me my old hose would crimp with the water running and crimping, according to the experts, is just about the worst thing a hose can do. An old hose can leak, dribble at an inopportune time, or fly off the spigot, but if it crimps you’re in need of a hose specialist. And yes, this person can be found on television.
