Top customer reviews
I bought two 25 footers. They didn't have them so sent me 2 50' for the same price.
On day 1, the first one I tried was punctured from the start. It had a pinhole that was shooting out water. Crap.
So I went to the second one. It was fine and dandy, but 3 days later the nozzle fell off.
Then there's this: You watch the video and get the idea that after you use it it'll scrunch back up to it's original size. It won't. You'll never get it back into that container. It does scrunch up and it is neat to see it happen, but it doesn't get nearly enough. In fact, it's disappointing. I was thinking that you could sorta just let it hang on the spigot in a clump. The 50' hose was maybe still 30' long when it was done shrinking and still had to be wound up and hung up. It was WAY easier to wind up than a normal water hose, but was way more work than they wanted me to think it was going to be.
All in all, I'd avoid it until they come up with a better product.
* Even though a good portion of reviews indicate weaknesses in the hose, I went ahead and bought one becuase I'd seen it in action.
* It really is light weight.
* It really expands to 50 feet and shrinks back to just several feet.
* Even fully expanded it is smaller than the standard 5/8" garden water hose, but its flow rate is comparable.
* The female fitting at the spigot doesn't leak and is easier to attach than a standard hose fitting.
* The male fitting for nozzles, etc, doesn't leak.
* Instructions require the hose be disconnected from the water spigot between uses
* Instructions require the hose be completely emptied of water between uses.
* This is extra work that, if not adhered to, might void the guarantee.
For now it's OK - it does what it claims. How soon will it develop holes? Maybe never, but based on many reviews, I expect it to eventually happen. The problem is the lack of repair fittings in the garden/outdoor section of the stores that sell this hose. So, when it breaks, the whole thing will probably end up in the trash.
Because of anticipated problems, I'll try to remember to update this review when the holes start or next spring after a year's use.
UPDATE 7/1/14 - It broke today at the faucet end fitting. The inner material split about two inches and the outer coat also ripped. I see no way to splice this back into the female fitting, so the money spent on this is a complete waste. I had hopes I'd be one of the thirty percent that got a good one, but this one broke just three days after the warranty expired. Go figure.
UPDATE - 9/9/2013. The hose literally snapped apart this weekend. I was watering on the back deck & kaboom! Water started going everywhere. We started looking at the hose & noticed several places where the fabric around the expanding rubber hose was starting to fray.
At this point, no I will not buy another one, no matter what the price is. ~feeling swindled & disgusted~
Notice how my description is in the past tense? After two months of moderate use, one end snapped. The inner layer shot back into the hose. The outer layer still carries water, but now it comes out with a waterfall effect along the last four feet of the hose. Guess what? The kids still love it! The put the hose around their heads like a kerchief and enjoy getting soaking wet.
Of course, if you we're looking for something to use as a garden hose, this isn't for you. The high pressure will devastate you plants, the retracting action will probably hurt someone, and the junctions leaked right out of the box.
If you want a good laugh, buy this phallic wonder. If you want a hose, buy anything else.
