Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Aroyals Good Storage Idea
This hose & coil is a good buy for those who are storage minded. The coiled hose didn't work as well as I thought it would mounting it to the house, simply because of my concern stretching it across the yard repeatedly would wear it out. Instead, I mounted it to a 50 gallon water tank I have to use watering the trees out across our driveway. Using my water tank, I save our other hoses from constantly being ran over from driveway traffic. Simply fill it at the house, park it next to the tree, crack the line and let it trickle water. I did have to glue the little black caps in, but nothing that isn't a major defect.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by signet Compact hose design
This coil water hose is best for smaller jobs like watering containers or bathing the dog. I had no trouble installing the hanging rack, although it is unclear to me why there is a screw provided for the middle of the rack as it is not securing anything in that position. Nevertheless, the hose is nice and light and the pressure is strong enough, even going through my regular hose to get the job done. This hose has metal fittings which should be sturdy. Apparently, you should not run hot water through the hose and it is not lead free. If you return the hose to its coiled storage position every time it is used it should retain that shape. Be careful not to stretch it to the full length to avoid kinks and misshapen coils.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HappyCustomerHere Self coiling water hose
I have found in using this self coiling water hose, it is best for watering my garden and smaller task watering. When it comes to needing a sturdy hose to connect to sprinklers traditional hoses work best. My only complaint with hose, is the mounting bracket that is included. The bracket is fixed in one position so if your outdoor wall space will not accommodate this setup (mine won't) then the bracket is useless. It would have been really useful if the bracket rotated from side to side - oh well. I use it without and it works just fine, but it would be nice to have it neatly stored on the wall.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GolfingGrandma Nice small compact house
This is a small coiled hose that is good for small chores that don't require a standard 1/2-3/4" volume but not a replacement for a standard garden hose. The idea of the coiled hose is good and it works okay for the size of this hose but would be hard to use this as the main hose for the average house. It is easy to stretch out and comes with the mounting rack to store it. If you're need is compact like a condo or apartment, this will be your hose but with a large yard, I recommend a standard garden hose. This hose may be 1/2" but the water volume is much smaller.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Larry Coiled garden hose
The hose is a made of good quality material. The couplings are made of metal not plastic as some less expensive hoses. The water volume is much less than a regular ½ inch hose because of the coiled design. However, I do like the coiled feature as far as storing it, but it's a nuisance as it's always trying to pull back on you. If you set this hose down it'll pull back to the faucet like a spring. The other problem I found is that the hose gets tangle easily in the bushes. The hose comes with a heavy metal bar shaped in a "U" with a bracket. It is extremely sturdy and I like it better than the wire basket shown in the product literature. When installed next to your faucet it is the same low profile and you can rest the spray nozzle on the top. When you are done watering, you can easily drop the hose onto the "U" and slide it down so it is nicely contained. The hose uncoils without kinking on the furthest pull and returns to its coil shape when we are finished. However, don't expect it to stretch out to 50 feet (even though it's a 50 feet hose); the coil concept has its limitation. This is a good water hose for small space or limited backyard.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by franztini Nice quality hose, Love the new holder, 95% of the time
The hose is a very good quality, thick but not a super heavy material. So dragging the hose around the garden to water your plants, you will not get fatigued fighting with it. The hose holder is different than what is pictured on homedepot.com (see pics). It is a heavy metal bar shaped in "U" with a bracket. It is extremely sturdy and I like the look so much better than the wire basket. When installed next to your faucet it is the same low profile and you can rest the spray nozzle on the top. When you are done watering, you can easily drop the hose onto the "U" and slide it down so it is nicely contained. I have had this type of hose with the basket and this is cleaner, more modern looking, and it may not rust like the baskets. So when is the time I don't like the new holder? Because I can be kinda lazy/in a rush at times. Lets say you want to water plants 25ft away, so you don't want to take the entire hose out, so you take, what you think, is plenty of hose to reach the plants 25ft away. You get 3 feet away from your plants and you can't reach them. If the hose was in a basket, you could just flick the hose and it would pop out of the basket. Not the case with this hose holder, you have to go all the way back take out more hose. I know minor, but when you forgot to water your plants and late for an appt it is a little aggravating.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sc54 Nice hose for small jobs
This compact, coiled hose is perfect for small jobs like watering your garden or hosing dirt off a sidewalk but would not recommend it for heavier jobs such as washing a car. The water volume is not the same as a standard hose due to the compact coiled design. mounting bracket is easy to install and the hose seems like it will keep its shape with time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lilybet Great hose
I have arthritis and tugging a hose all over the yard is too painful. I love these hoses. They are light in weight and spring back to the faucet area very well. I have one that I have had for about 8 years and it still works like a charm. I bought 3 more of these to spread about the garden and yard. The hose hanger is helpful and very stout, but sometimes its a bit of a challenge to get the hose rehung all of the way, although most of the hose I can manage. I put a short (15") hand held sprayer on each of them and can do anything I did with a big standard hose.
My only reason for the markdown in quality is that these newer hoses do not seem to be quite as beefy as my older one. They still work great and I've put all of my heavy hoses aside.
