Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cpns72 1/2 in. x 50 ft. Coil Water Hose
I received 1/2 in. x 50 ft. green coil water garden hose, everything looked good from shipping. I like that it has a heavy duty strong U-shaped rack with the coil water garden hose. Installed the U-shaped rack outside by side of my house near the faucet.. The coil water garden hose was light , not heavy like other not coiled water garden hoses. And the coil water garden went back to it's original to the to the faucet area very easy after the use. no messy to leave garden hoses on the ground. no trip over the loose garden hose on the ground.

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.

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.

I mainly got this hose to use this winter in my greenhouse; I wanted something lightweight and small that I could keep in the house and carry outside to use when necessary. I like that it has a U-shaped rack, but I'll probably come up with something else to use for storage in the house and just use the rack outside, if I decide to mount it on the house or something else. The hose attached easily to the spigot and the nozzle, however, the nozzle-end attachment is narrow and not easily maneuvered by slightly arthritic hands. I will probably get a couple quick-connect attachments to use in conjunction with this hose to speed up the amount of time I'll be spending outside this winter.

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.

The Melnor Coil Garden Hose is well made. I am impressed with how well it keeps it "coil". I have used it and find that it keeps its shape and pulls back easily. It is light and easy to move around. It appears to be strong and is holding it shape well. The storage rack comes with the hose and although it is a bit awkward to get the hose back on, it seems to be adequate to hold the hose and will also help to keep the coil shape.

The hose functions well, although it does not recoil quickly. It takes a day to recoil. I needed a coiled hose in a specific location and this was the only one I could find. I wanted a tan color and dark green is the only color HD had.

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.
