Another Poll???
As I pulled the cover off my 10-foot hose, I got to wondering whether other forum members use covers/socks on their hoses. Thus I've created this extremely short poll.

RE: Another Poll???
You need a third option. Heated hoses should not have a cover, but are different from naked unheated hoses.

eplantz,
This poll is at the top of the thread. You probably clicked on the link to the survey in PollCat's signature line.

And now for something completely different...

My ClimateLine goes au natural.

Edit: BTW - Nobody has any idea how hard it is for me to refrain from firing off several vulgar jokes right now.

Some heated hoses can be covered, some can't.
