I recently posted a review with problems that I had with this hose and not being able to remove a broken nozzle because a not very well thought out design. I was contacted by a the manufacturer -Melnor -who sent me a replacement hose and an adaptor for a new nozzle so now I won't have any problem replacing or switching out the nozzle. I have to say, this is great customer service by Melnor - a welcome surprise in this day and age to see a manufacturer stand by their products and set high standards for their company.
I bought like 3 of these garden hoses which NONE of them last longer than 2 months. My recent purchase did not even last 1 weeks. The hose popped one big hole with little of water pressure when I closed the nozzle for about 10 seconds between my trees. The plastic cover is easy scratch and inconvience. 50 ft hose but you will have tough time going that distance and the hose will not recoil all the way. I suggest getting different type of hose. WASTE OF MONEY!
I've always wanted a coiling water hose since I water on a daily basis and really get tired of re-coiling the hose after each use. This works and doesn't work. The hose is great and easy to drag everywhere but trying to coil it into the hanging rack and you will make yourself crazy. I finally found a large pot and put it at the bottom of the faucet and 'recoil' it into the pot after use.
Not as convenient as a softer expandable pocket hose type. But the hose and ends are of better quality.
Very difficult to get back in the hose holder provided. So depending on what you are looking for it is more compact than traditional hoses.
The hose comes with its own storage hanger which makes putting it away out of sight easy. The hanger was easy for me to install b/c I hung it on wood in our shed. It came with screws and plastic anchors. If you hang it on a masonry wall you'll need a masonry bit and I don't know if those plastic anchors will work so well in masonry. It comes with one rubber washer. You'll need 2-one for the faucet end and one for attaching a nozzle. The nice thing about this hose for me-as you can see from the pics-is that it stores neatly and compactly, especially compared to my previous 50' hose. It uncoils easily but be careful not to overstretch it. If you do-as we did when first using it-the hose will kink as it re-coils itself. We have a very small front yard so the length of this hose is perfect for us. We have plants to water and a sidewalk to hose off occasionally. Stretching it to reach the car-shown in one of the pics-was a bit of a chore.
easy to use and store
may kink if you're not careful
I needed a hose to spray off patio, water plants, etc. I am not usually a fan of the "coil" hoses but I thought I would give this a try because in theory I thought this would work. I am pleasantly surprised. First of all, this is not some wimpy little hose. The hose is actually fairly meaty. I did not have kink problems as I have seen with other coil hoses. The hose is softer than normal coil hoses and works great. My only negative is the connections are pressed on and do not appear to be very robust, but we'll see how it holds up. Works good so far. It comes with a mounting bracket that I did not use because I did not want to drill into the stucco on my house but looks like it would work good.
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.
Durable, Easy to Install, Functionality, Good Shape, Great Quality, Strong, Stylish, light
This Coiled Garden hose came with a U shaped hose hanger, it is a heavier metal tube and looks much stronger than the older style wire hanger.
I found it difficult to remove all of the hose from the U shaped hanger leaving a few feet of hose on the hanger near the water spigot. I used a quick connect water hose coupling to remove the hose from the hanger and then connect the hose. This will give you the ability to use the entire length of hose if needed.
The hose stretched to 40 feet with no strain and will stretch to 50 feet with a little more effort.
I am very pleased with the functionality and look of this hose.
This will make watering the flower beds much easier than using my large heavy rubber hose.
