"Most important thing to remember is the price. You get what you pay for but I actually think this is very good value. The problems encountered, hose kinking-yes it does but not if you shut the nozzle off but leave the tap on & roll it up with the pressure still in the pipe. The hose rolled up does just only fit the reel & it's has to be perfectly done (virtually impossible), but it only effected the last few feet so I can work round it. At the end of the day the individual parts of this pack would cost more on their own, you are paying 7.99 for it! For that it is good value."
