So, I've always had to unreel my very long garden hose from the side of the house in order to water these two pots. And then reel it back. There must be an easier way, I figured.
At first I thought I'd get one of those `incredible-shrinking-garden-hoses' I've seen advertised on TV. But the customer reviews I found said they didn't work and that the quality was very poor. My local Home Depot had it for a week, the sales people told me. But it never came back. Poor quality must've been the reason why.
Then I stumbled upon this six-foot Leader Hose. It fit the job perfectly. The color I received was black. It looked very professional, like a commercial gardener would use. It's also disappears from view and is not easily seen.
It's thick enough so that it doesn't kink when I water the planter on the far side of the door. Lastly, it also screws in tight and doesn't leak. I wrapped the male ends with Teflon tape. I leave a nozzle sprayer attached.
Watering those two planters on my front steps is now a breeze. I don't get my hands, pants or legs dirty from unreeling and reeling back my longer garden hose from the side of the house. I'm very, very pleased. I also can't believe how long I've endured this situation. Like, duh.
If you need a very short garden hose, this six-foot Leader Hose may be a perfect solution for you, too. Enjoy.
We'll see how it holds up, but for now: so far so good.
At 6 feet long, it is useful for many applications, other than connecting hose reels. We use ours on a horse water trough.
I did have to buy a double female hose adapter since the hose I am replacing has male fittings on both ends. Amazon does have them
Short hoses are hard to find. It seems to be of good quality with metal fittings and came with washers and a plastic grip on the female end to make screwing it onto the facet easier. - -Time will tell if it holds up.

Substantial hose without any kinking! Very useful at an outdoor spigot that is mounted too low for filling a watering can.Published 2 days ago by P.L.
Leaks at the connection point. Maybe it's user error or something wrong with my spigot (unlikely but maybe?), but I see other recent reviews with the same problem. Read morePublished 3 days ago by B.A. Waffle
I just received the hose; the compression fitting (the female coupling side of the hose) is NOT metal, as suggested in the picture. It is black plastic. Read morePublished 6 days ago by RM
