Rated 1 out of 5Â by Jujube Apex 5/8 in. x 150 ft. Medium-Duty Reel Water Hose
It bursts at the location twisted -- it is difficult to avoid twist. I got another hose that works fine when it is twisted. But this one bursts soon when the hose is twisted by accident.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by PAtiger83 Horrible in every way- Home Depot needs to find another hose vendor!
After bringing this hose home, it took about 2 hours to get it all rolled out and unkinked- the way they spin it to package it might be great for them for shipping purposes but is a real pain for the customer. I turned on the spigot and immediately noticed several bulges in the hose- it looked like a snake who had just enjoyed several large mice. Needless to say, it burst within the first 20 minutes of use.
I returned it, and hoping I just got a lemon, I took another one home. I spent another 2 hours unreeling, unkinking, and straightening out the house so there was no unnecessary pressure anywhere. The second hose did last more than twice as long as the first one...which amounted to a total of 45 minutes of use before it exploded.
It comes with an 8 year guarantee...I guess they're hoping you just don't care enough about the $35 you just threw away to care about calling them on it.
This is one of the worst products I've ever encountered and am more than frustrated with Home Depot for wasting basically my entire weekend uncoiling and returning hoses. They need to get rid of Apex and get a different hose vendor.

Got a hole in it the second time I used it. Waste of money.

We actually already returned it. We tried using he hose two separate times and even when unrolling it about fifty feet, it immediately knotted. It was almost as if the hose being on caused knots to occur. After my husband and I fully untangled it, we would turn on the water and poof, tangled again. It's cheap but you cant use it. Don't waste your time.
