HydroHose Retractable Automatic Hose Reel with 50ft Flat Hose
Didn't even last until summer
So disappointed. Tho hose split after two months. Ordered in April , it didn't even last until summer got here.
Not worth the price
This hose actually has worked great for us for about 2 months. It now has a leak & we have only used it once or twice a week. A LOT of money for a product that only last 2months!!!!
Good Concept Bad Quality
We bought 3 of these for different areas around the yard. They worked great for about 2 months then one lost pressure and eventually wouldn't work at all. The second one, near the end of the hose the hose started to leak and eventually burst soaking me. The third is starting to lose pressure and I'm sure it will stop working all together very soon. The concept is great but the quality is poor and not made for everyday use. The plastic tube in the hose gets pinched and there is no way to fix it. Do Not Waste Your Money it does not hold up!
Great product questionable hoses
It was purchases for my mother as she needed alight weight hose and easy rewind. This is a great product easy to use and retract. In buying the extension it cannot be rewound without raising the door cover otherwise it works great. So I showed my mother how the door raises and left it up. The hose was easy to pull out and retract,
MAJOR problem developed in the hoses. First the extension stopped working the water would not flow out. It would stop at the end of the hose. EWe drained the hose and reconnected it and even at full power the water just sat at the end of the hose. We thought possibly an air pocket or blockage. We tried everything we could think of. After trying to get it to work the hose burst at the attachment end.
Next the primary hose started doing the same thing and burst at the end of the hose. Then the connector hose from the faucet to to the rewinder did the same thing.
The only thing we could figure was the hose was twisting while rewinding and somehow breaking internally.
Recommendations is to be careful rewinding and let it twist.
Best Hose and Auto Reel
This Is the BEST hose and Auto Reel!!!! I do LOTS of gardening. I was tired of lugging heavy hoses around and decided to try this fabulous product. I HIGHLY recommend this product. Its made watering so much easier.
My husband contacted the HydroHose company because the hose from the house to the reel container was to short, seeing ours is above the garage door. He spoke to Bryan Lay, a store manager. As he said in a few days our extension had arrived.
I haven't had it long, but for me so far this is such a help. It winds up so easily, and the weight is so light, making it easy to move around the yard.
I did buy another 25 ft. when I bought it to make it longer, so the 75 fits well in the holder.
Not Worth the Money
We are on our second one of these and don't really use it much except during the summer - just to wash vehicles and for light duty jobs. Both of them leaked and the reel housing is lightweight and moves around a lot when rewinding the hose. We will try something else for our replacement hose this time.
NEEDS TO BE RESIGNED
Good thing: It is good for people with physical issues. The reel housing is poorly designed, its shape is mostly round and it rolls around like a wheel. It is not stable at all with 100 feet of hose in it. The reel motor has gone out after very little use, but thankfully it has a hand crank. The hose is sold by the foot; 50 feet is just 16.6 yards, the 25 foot is 8.3. I have ordered the initial 50 feet with the reel and two more 25 foot hoses. The hose that connects to the reel housing from the faucet already shows bad wear on it ~ that needs to be reinforced at that connection point. The hose does kink up blocking the flow. I massage the hose at the point of the kink and all is well again. The volume of water is not as good as a regular hose, but in my case, that's what I prefer for watering my flower pots and hanging baskets. Although the volume is less, the pressure is great. BUT I still prefer this hose to the regular heavy hoses.
Great, great, great!
I purchased 2 of these 4 years ago. This is the first year I will have to charge them and I use them constantly. One of my hoses did spring a leak last year and am going to order one of the pretty hoses HydroHose now has to replace it. Considering buying another one for our up-north house.
Seems to be the same complaint
I purchased two of these last year..worked great for a while. Started to lose pressure towards the nozzle end..the inner casing must have broken..both broke in same manner about two weeks apart. Concept is great but construction doesn't last and seems to be the same common flaw
the greastest thing in a hose
comes out easy and goes in great.. i love it.fits in just about any space.
We purchased this hose and used for a couple of months, then the hose plastic broke inside the fabric. Although QVC, which we love, allowed us to return it and they replaced it with a new one, the plastic inside the fabric gave way again only this time in a very large area. In lieu of returning it for a second time we just parked it in the trash. Disappointed in the product but not QVC.
