This product might work if your hose is always running, but if the hose happens to have a kink in it, or if the water is turned off at the nozzle, turning on the water leading to the reel blows out (literally!!) a black plastic connector that attaches the reel to the hose that leads to the water line. Two small screws hold the connector to the reel, so any build-up of pressure inside the reel leads to disaster.
It seemed a good idea at the time, but obviously not practical for anyone with decent water pressure if there is ANY chance that the hose might be blocked at some point past the hose reel.
