When empty again, it is about 6 yards of wrinkly, drapey material that I can hang in the basement for occasional use. I really liked this hose but on one particularly hot day I was outside watering and it sprung a leak and then the internal hose blew out like a clown balloon and began growing at such an alarming rate I put the hose down and ran to turn the water off, but it exploded before I could. But at 40 psi, they started retracting unless we reduced the flow at the nozzle.
TerryY, January 29, After seeing this hose hyped on TV for the last few years I finally bought one. Fifty feet and about twenty dollars I don't think I bought anything that would make me resent the money I paid. Well a couple of neighbors have them and I have the old fashion heavy and hard to store hose.
This item is feather light comes with a small adaptor for the hose faucet and for an older gardener, car washer, or just washing the sidewalk, this is a great hose.
The problem I had was one of the fittings was attached at an angle, but still worked. Feels funny at first, laying out the hose from the faucet it was about twenty feet. Turned the water on and watched this "snake" to a full fifty feet. Easy to pull, no leaks, and the stream of water was adequate for the job I was doing.
Finished and watch as the "snake" retracted. Had to be carful as the hose whipped around a little as the hose emptied and resumed it normal size. For oldsters and young kids this hose is great as for me I was impressed, but disappointed in the poor attachment of the one ends fitting. Takes up as much space as the container it came in. Another Poorly Made Product. I really liked this hose but on one particularly hot day I was outside watering and it sprung a leak and then the internal hose blew out like a clown balloon and began growing at such an alarming rate I put the hose down and ran to turn the water off, but it exploded before I could.
Another poorly made product. I don't know where it is made, if this is the original version or a copy, but wherever and whatever, it is garbage. I have to wonder how many people bought one and are too busy or simply don't care about returning it when it busts.
All the ads talk about its incredible strength Glad I saved my receipt, because I am getting my money back!! Sorry but there isn't a brand or style that works! I have purchased and tried every model of this style of hose and every style did not last. Every hose in this style is the very best idea but will not last. All the inner tubes blew typically after about weeks after I used them for simple backyard chores.
It a great idea but if you use this style of hose regularly it will not last even one short season. I hoped it would I started with the pocket hose then the Dap hose and then all the so call ultras they are offering and they all failed! The inner liners are just not strong enough even with my 50 lbs. Love the idea and will keep hoping someone will make one that lasts. They may also shrink under reduced pressure. The hoses delivered full flow for car-washing and other jobs at 60 psi with the nozzle wide open.
But at 40 psi, they started retracting unless we reduced the flow at the nozzle. The Pocket Hose shrank the least, losing roughly 10 feet of length compared with almost 30 feet for the other two. And because they shrink to their original size when the water is turned off, all three are poor choices for use with sprinklers. If you're just digging in to your yard work this spring, here's some tricks to reduce the size of your yard and your yard work.
Switching from an all-lawn yard to one that's 40 percent lawn and 60 percent trees, shrubs, ground cover, and hardscape will cut your water needs by 20 to 50 percent, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
