Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by transportationoic Sturdy construction and durable
We bought two, one for the south side, and the north side. After three years continuous use in Kansas, the rubber gaskets failed this summer. Thankfully Liberty has the parts available to order. Nothing lasts forever and a little silicone and maintenance it should last quite a while. The reel is very sturdy and we lag bolted them to the side of the house. One holds 100' of 5/8" and the other has 75' of 5/8" hose without issues.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jphelps1511 Works good for a while.....
Like many others here, the non-rotating swivel where the hose attaches to leaks like a sieve now after only 2 years and it's noticeably sloppy and probably wearing on the inside. I will try to get a replacement, but even if I can, it will most likely leak again given this common problem. I've noticed more frequent issues with HD products that I buy. They should look at quality of their products more closely. I'd rather pay a little more for stuff that doesn't fail in a short amount of time, but that seems to be the norm in today's world.

This is a very nice looking unit, but like the other reviews have stated, it leaks terribly. I just ordered my 3rd crank handle from the manufacturer, as they break off while reeling in the hose. The material used to make the crank handle is very week. I do not recommend this unit. Remember, you will be mounting this to your home, and within a couple months will need to have it removed do to the reasons mentioned above, leaving you with holes in the side of your home, and a broken unit. Avoid

The swivel connector will start leaking badly. there are two rubber rings that will wear out quickly. Nice aesthetics, bad engineering. Now, do I fix, or replace?

The reel is made of strong material and is well built but, it's ugly.
Not sure if they were going for the artsy-look or what but, it's in my garage instead of on my house.

After use outside in northeast NJ drips from attached hose at reel connection. All parts needed to fix are available and are not standard sizes. They must be bought from manufacturer on line. After 4 years hose had wear hole in it from rubbing against frame. It works well. Hose must be drained to crank up easily. Fits 50 feet.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Steve AVOID - bad leaks quickly develop
I bought model 708, a less expensive version, in April 2013. By October the swivel connector was leaking like a sieve, leaving so much water spraying I could not use it. I called Liberty and they replaced it for free. By August of 2014, the replacement was leaking badly again and I was told after a year, I'd have to pay $16.95 for the part. That's a high price to pay for less than a year's use. AVOID!
