"Works good mechanically. Not sure about durability? But it leaks terribly internally? Can not be repaired, Deformed Plastic. Not good Quality"

self reeling hose

"I recently purchased a hose very similar to this, however since my purchase they have changed a few parts. My hose has the quick release nosle that is plastic and fitted right to the hose. The problem is that the hose isn't threaded therefore I could not fit another sprayer to the end of it. Just the other day the nosle met its fate in a simple twist and now it has a makeshift threaded end made by my plumber. When I called to see if I could get a replacement part, there isn't one to replace it with. I would have to remove it from the bolted wall, ship the whole component back to them and have a whole new replacement sent back to me since it has a one year warrenty. Clearly I took the path of least resistance, mainly because this is the hose that I use daily to water animals and clean feeding and drinking pails. I like it because it mounts to the wall, retracts with a spirng action keeping it out of my tripping path. Im glad they switched to the threaded end piece, you will be very happy with this solution"

"Has this for almost a year now. Seems to work well. We pulled it in for the winter - which is easy to do thanks to the design. Just disconnect from the faucet, pull the pivot out and carry it away to the garage for the winter. My wife made daily use of this all last summer and fall. Never had any problems."
