"Cheap but valuable - looks dearer than it costs - could have the name 'Draper' attached to it. I bought it to cut and use as downpipes for greenhouse gutters to water butts. The 13mm diameter fittted neatly onto my gutter outlets and snugly into each of the water butts. It is easily cut with a stanley knife. The other 29 m, I'll use for watering my raised beds. Worth every penny."
"Purchased to extend mains water supply to garden irrigation system- "Ideal" needed to be handled with care when running behind garage facia so as to avoid any kinks but, fully met what was required. Surplus hose being used to drain radiators etc. As yet can't fault it, time will tell as regards reliability although have no reason to doubt its performance."
"I bought this cheap hose because I needed a second hose for a specific job. It did that job well enough. (I already have a 30m good quality hose). Yes, it is soft plastic and it kinks and twists very easily, but it is not as bad as other reviewers suggest. Rated at 10 Bar, if your outside tap has a double check valve (as it should these days) I doubt that your water pressure will exceed that in general use. I'll keep it to hand for if I ever need to use two hoses again, and use this for the low pressure occasional application it is good for."
It's too floppy, and kinks too easily. Other comparable hoses are more rigid and resistant to kinks. I think this is only a problem because of the length, and because I'm using it on a reel (so it twists when wound in). I'd rather have paid the extra for a proper Hozelock one or similar."
"as soon as my local branch opens tomorrow i will be taking this back,it's so soft that it kinks and squashes just trying to put it on the reel ,so flimsy that i doubt that it would last 5 mins in use and it would kink going round or over any obstruction."
"I bought this as a garden hose and connected it to mains pressure. Shortly after it bubbled, ballooned, delaminated and split. Totally useless, not fit for purpose. Screwfix, should warn that this product cannot handle garden use/mains pressure. Utter rubbish. To be returned and swapped for a propper hose."
