Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sandy I agree with the negatives
It tips over and rolls around with the hose every time I use it.An average hose really does not fit in it well. Takes work to re-roll your hose when you put it back in so you get wet and dirty.
Looks attractive.Excellent endurance for all weather but better used as a flower pot than hose container.
It works fine for one of those expandable hoses.Would never recommend it or buy again.

I found these on clearance and they worked just fine for large flower ports at a much lower price.

This hose pot is too light, so I put a brick in the bottom. Next, only about 20 feet of hose fits in. It's pretty useless.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sailnbyu falls over every time you pull the hose out
Bought this hoping it would be sufficient to hold a 25 ft high quality Sears Craftsman never kink hose I keep on my balcony for watering potted plants. Unfortunately, every time I pull the hose out of the basket it falls over spilling the rest of the coiled hose out onto whatever plant I happen to have close by. I had a heavy brass holder in the same spot but it was larger and had rusted. I was hoping this would be a good alternative but it's just too light weight to keep the unused portion of the hose contained. Maybe a large rock would hold it down but then I wouldn't have room to coil the hose.

Does nothing but kink the hose when used and is difficult to pull hose out for use.

This pot is not good for anything but storing those X hoses or maybe a 25' very flexible hose. It is so small it kinks the heck out of any type of normal garden hose and damages it. Without a lid, about all it accomplishes is to keep the hose in one place. It does not protect the hose at all.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AllenK23 Good Pot for Expandable Hose
Replaced an old reel-up hose caddy which was a pain to use. My wife bought one of those expandable/retractable hoses and once the water goes off, we needed an item like a pot or box into which to place the hose and nozzle. My wife came home with this. Yes, it is very lightweight as I believe others have mentioned. Since I use it for a lightweight hose and nozzle, which easily fit inside, the pot's weight is not an issue. What I did was place into the bottom of the pot a half-broken brick. That keeps it weighed down but leaves tons of room for my use. The factory holes in the bottom allow water to drain. It works perfectly for us. Also, the bronze color goes well with the brick on the house and the mulch on which it sits.

Meets a need, and is functional. It is not the most athsteticly appealing hose pot on the market. Not sure about its durability in the Arizona sun. That remains to be seen.
