This is the second Hose Reel I have purchase from HD. I installed it on a brick surface and I would recommend using concrete screws not plastic inserts and screws. I have completed the install and all is well. The reel will not hold a 100 feet of 5/8" hose though I am sure it would hold that much 1/2" hose. Presently I have 60' of 5/8" hose on it. It works well and it does not leak.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Looking4HoseMountReplacem Will NOT buy again
Bought 2 for my brand new house last year - now I have to replace both (with something else) due to the mount on each has cracked. One was used 2 or 3 times and the other not at all - does not make a difference since the 100' hose is too heavy for the plastic mount. Not pleased that I wasted drilling holes in my home!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Terry Good product, however plastic tends to break.
This is the second one I have purchased. I purchased one in 2007, and it lasted 3 or 4 yrs, until the wall mount broke. I removed and bought a different product at Walmart, but it only holds 50 ft of hose. So I repaired the broken one with some wood crafting, screws, superglue. That lasted 2 years, so I looked for another one. I could not find anything better, so I now have the same one yet to be installed. Perhaps the manufacturer, could provide some better plastic for their product

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DontHaveOne It Works...but that is about it..
This is my second one, the first broke after a few years. The part that broke is the frame that mounts to the wall. I purchased another one (this purchase) because the holes aligned with what I already had AND there wasn't a better option that I could find.
I'm hoping this one will make it longer or break before the 3 year warranty on it goes out. I have no idea how many years old the first one was -- but think it was less than 3.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Carl Would not recommend
The reel broke off the base as soon as I attached my hose and began to coil it. Almost like it was never quality tested to support a hose.

For something so cheap, this is surprisingly durable. It's worked with regular usage for 2 years in the AZ heat. It actually outlasted my "durable" hose.
The only problem in the design is the point where the hose connects to the spindle. It could definitely use some reinforcement. I avoided wrapping the hose tightly where the connection is made and ensured I never unwound the hose completely to keep the stress off that point. Unfortunately, I forgot about this with my replacement hose, which wound up cracking the connector.
You shouldn't really expect much from something that costs less than a day at the movies.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nerak936 Great hose reel
This was a replacement purchase for the original hose reel I had. The original one broke after about 4 years of use and mostly due to my pulling on it harshly. I had no problem buying another one (and I'll be more gentle with this one!!)
