Rated 4 out of 5Â by Sassenach the theory is good
Been very pleased so far after installing it in July.
Reliability may be an issue in the future as it appears flimsy - time will tell hence lower rating. As others mentioned, it is a shame it is not a brass connector on the wall bracket side. The locking lugs on the wall bracket I found too small to be really effective so the reel tends to move about a bit. Apart from that - well pleased and easy to use. Did think it a bit pricey.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by oldboy47 Great Hose Reel
Have tried all the well known hose reels but this is the best. Easy to fix and put together. The hose I supplied runs out easily, no tangles and with the handle winds back with ease.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Sadouet Poorly made
Disappointed with this.
The water inlet connector does not secure properly to a normal hose fitting, and the thread is so poorly cut and the metal so soft it does not take a different connector.
The nut on the winding handle stick out towards the hose so the hose catches on it when unreeling so the hose jams.
A good design in theory, just so poorly manufactured it is not useable and will be returned.
