For example, a 1/2 inch hose that is 100 feet long and has a pressure of 40 psi has a water flow of about 6 gallons per minute. Some hose manufacturers create hoses out of special materials or with special nozzles that increase the flow rate of water and can achieve a flow rate of as many as 4 1/2 gallons of water per minute.
