This was the one. It returns to flat after use to save the space/distance. The slinky like as seen on TV ones did last a year or two, but one rip in the elastic slinky and the whole thing was shot.Care to share which better ones you purchased
I had 2 connected together in the front and one in the back which could easily stretch across the pool for plant watering/ deck rinsing / etc. it was awesome for simple spray jobs that weren’t worth the hassle of coiling 100 ft of 3/4 hose or replacing the sun cast reel every other year.
