So, I’m in search of a good quality hose reel for my garden hose. I’m sick of those Suncast ones that break in like a year or two. I need something that can withstand the AZ sun and won’t self destruct. Anyone have a good one they found??
Care to share which better ones you purchased? I've thought about those and wanted to try them, but the "as shown on TV" moniker does not generally equate to 'high quality' in my experience. Would love to keep one of those out on the pool patio for rinsing skimmer baskets etc.I gave up on reels altogether. I was coiling my hoses for a bit and my Mom got me one of those expandable hoses for a birthday or something. It sat in the box for 2 years and I eventually needed it in a pinch and LOVED it. I bought better ones and had 2 attached together in the front and one in the back. I made and stained simple J hooks out of wood and attached those to the house. The expandable hoses are light as a feather and take up next to no room once all the water squeezes out.
Just to let you know, Eley just had a 10% increase on their hose reels and accessories effective April 1st. I had my order ready to place on March 31st but got diverted with some other issues. I did not shut down my computer over night. Today, I opened up a new window for Eley and the prices were different from my original window I had left open. So I called them and phone was answered by one of the Eley family members. He was quite gracious but explained they had held off on a price increase for a long time but material costs had risen drastically, so they implemented the price increase. Still a great product and I did place my order.I might have to go the Eley route. I was thinking I could make a “dog house” to park it in when not in use.
A friend of mine owns a shipping container company, what used to cost $1500 a container to ship, now costs $5000. Covid has disrupted supply lines around the globe.Can anyone confirm it’s not just on/off season prices ? Look at all the pool stuffs that go up
In price every year about now. A lot of companies do it.
