Compact Hose
31 Aug 2013
By Lairy
, Essex
"I needed a new hose, the old one was leaking and was difficult to reel in. I was tempted by the Xhose but the reviews were dreadful. With a bit of internet research I came across this product and Screwfix offered it at the best price. It was easy to order on line and a breeze to pick up. My only complaint is that the assembly instructions are pictorial only, in spite of that with logic, intelligence and commonsense I put it together (I am an old girl). Once assembled easy, neat, compact, tidy just what I wanted,"

"Good product that works well. The hose is easy to fit and use. Definitely recommended. Hoselock fittings also better and easier to use than brass one's."

"Great product and a great brand, simple to use but effective. Great wall mounting system. Shame there is not a padlock system on the locking pin to stop it being nicked."

Very Good Value

"This is an excellent product and excellent value. I can be Fixed to a wall and simply removed at any time by releasing a clip. It has a guide to help the hose lay neatly when winding back in. Light to carry with the fitted handle, good all round."

Good Overall
17 Aug 2012
By cartw16

"Been thinking about geeting one for a while now and finally talked myself into it last week, perfect for washing cars etc at the front of the house with reel fixed to wall by back gate. assembly instructions aren't the best but i had seen video on youtube before purchase so not really a problem.
The spray trigger supplied is fine but will probably need replacing soon as a little flimsy and the plastic water stop connector leeks a bit so has to be turned off at the tap when not in use.
The main downside is the unit cannot be locked to the wall so i had to use a combination cycle lock through the carry handle an arould a drain pipe to secure it.
Good overall with a few small niggles but better than having a hosepipe lying around on the floor

"Good product at a competitive price. Easy to fit, sturdy enough and tidly stores hose out of the way. Comes with guarantee from Hozelock. Not sure how it will fare under the UV rays but time will tell."

"This is a nice product (for the money) although you have to build it which is a bit fiddly the next one up comes built but is twice the price overall a good reel and worth a look"

Not 2in1
20 May 2011
By Opig

"I can't understand the reference to this being a 2 in 1 product as you can take off the wall. As another review says, you have to put it together yourself and one of the instructions is to cut a 5 foot length of hose. This is attached to the side of the reel and is then fixed. It then has to be long enough to reach your tap from the reel fixing point and 5 foot may not be enough, but even if it is once you have taken it off the wall you can't take it more than 5 foot from the tap anyway. The picture shows someone using the reel on a lawn - but if that lawn is more than 5 feet from your tap - no chance.
It doesn't reel in very well either."

looks better than it is
16 Jul 2013
By pointlessnickname
, evesham
"the thread on the hose connector stripped when I was doing it up by hand - no tools used
the closed design may look neat but it's a nightmare if (when) the hose become loose on the reel. Ignore looks and buy an open reel model that's cheaper.
the hose guide is pointless - you have to move the guide by hand and you might just as well guide to hose yourself"
