An awful product.
on 23 May 2018
I should have paid more attention to the reviews for this product. I have just unpacked the hose and attempted to unroll it, I would have had less problems in tackling a giant python. My previous experience of Hozelock products have been very good, my old garden hose and reel have been outside in all weathers for about 20 years, and I have had less problems with it in those 20 years than I have had with this new hose in the last 20 minutes. The manufacturer should be locked up for selling such awful goods. The hose kinks, and ties itself (and the user) in knots, and constantly stops the water flow. I have wound it on to my old reel for now but probably not for long, as it will probably soon end up in the rubbish where it belongs. I thought I may cut a short length of my new and my old hose and send them to Hozelock and ask them how they have allowed the quality of their products to drop.
Don't buy this hose as you will probably regret it.
