Coiled hose: Does anyone have one you like?

jenn(SoCal 9/19)June 1, 2011

We need a new hose for the side yard. The yard is 20 feet wide and 40 feet long, with sprinklers on both sides. The hose is only for supplemental watering and to fill a watering can, hose off hands, etc.

Rather than having to rewind a big hose sitting on the ground, we'd like a coiled hose that can be stored on a hanger or in a pot near the spigot when not in use.

I've read mixed reviews about these hoses including that they stop re-coiling after some time.

Does anyone have one you like?

I purchased one from a website called Sprinkler System Store. I use it to water some plants that are farther away from the rest of my garden areas. I've enjoyed it so far, no problems as of yet.

Here is a link that might be useful: Coil hose

Thank you, HarryThomas. How long have you had the hose?

I've had my coil hose for a few months and it's worked well for me.

I came to hate it. I bought it b/c I only had a short distance to water. But it still needed to be stretched to get to the furthest point. It's just like the curly telephone lines (remember those?) after a lot of stretching it inevitably begins to kink. No matter how careful you are about coiling it up, it will begin to take on a life of its own.

If its inexpensive and convenient, do it. Just don't expect to get more than two years of "normal" life out of it, if you are watering anything that requires it to be fully stretched out often.

It is probably worth $10 or $15 bucks a season.
