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.

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 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 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.

This is perfect for some but not everyone. For me it's a little too small. The water volume is much less because of the size of the hose and I like the coiled feature as far as storing it, but it's a major pain as far as it's always trying to pull back on you. You can't just set this hose down to do something else because it'll pull back to the faucet like a spring. Would be great for boats and a RV or small yard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by snowbabe Great coiled hose and mount
1/2 in. x 50 ft. Coil Water Hose
This is a very clever setup. As you can see from the pictures its a coiled garden hose with a mount. The mount is just a u-shaped piece of sturdy steel that the coils slips over. This is so clean and easy to use as shown in the picture. The hose is 50ft long so this is a great length. I use it in my hot tub room to fill and clean the tub and water the surrounding plants. I like this product.

I have put on 3 pictures of the hose, to show packaging and set-up ! You will have to rotate pix as I had to rotate to get them to download, sorry ! I was suprised at how well it came packaged and that it came WITH a mounting bracket ! No mounting hardware included however. I mounted it on a 2"x8"x4' piece of P/T Lumber with 1/4" Stainless Steel lag screws. It is a handy addition at our big fire pit as you can uncoil just the amount you need while doing your burns. And then you just put it back on it's hanger. Nice set-up !!!!!
