The gallons per hour that come out of a hose depends upon two things: the diameter of the hose, and the water pressure. Since both of these vary, there is no single answer to that question. However, a one inch diameter garden hose at an average household water pressure could be expected to yield about 200 gallons per hour, in my estimation. Your mileage may vary.

8.15 gallons

"Normal Pressure" varies depending on where you live. Most municipalities try to provide water between 40 and 80 psi. That's a pretty big range. How much water comes out of your garden hose varies depending on your service pressure, the length of hose, how much water your using in your house at that moment, and where the hose is located in relation to your water service. The most accurate way for you to figure it out is to take a 5 gallon bucket (the orange Home Depot buckets are about 5 gals) and time how long it takes you to fill it. If it takes 1 minute to fill 5 gallons then you're only getting a flow rate of 5 gallons per minute (this would be uncommonly slow). If it takes 30 seconds, then you're at 10 gpm. 20 seconds -> 15 gpm, etc. If you don't need to be terribly accurate, it's pretty safe to assume somewhere between 15 to 30 gpm for normal residential service. 15 gpm is on the lame end and 30 gpm would be pretty impressive for a garden hose.

Volume of a cylinder = (pi) x (radius)2 x (length) Volume of the hose = (pi) x (2 in)2 x (1200 in) = 15,080 cubic inches= 65.28 gallons That's the volume of the hose. We have no way to tell how much water there may be in it.

If you live in a town that has good water pressure and you are using your hose and your neighbor's hose, it should take 24 to 30 hours.

You can run water uphill with a garden hose by decreasing the size of the hose as it moves away from the water source. By decreasing the hose size, pressure in the hose increases and the water will travel uphill.

The amount of water that can fit in a garden hose depends on its diameter. On average, a standard garden hose has a diameter of about 5/8 inches. For a 5/8 inch hose, there are approximately 12 gallons of water in 100 feet of hose.
