I am looking for a good hose, I need about 15mtr's preferably wall mounted, any recommendations.




  • I tried out one of those expandable hoses the other day at a client's garden, I must say they are really good! Very lightweight and don't kink at all, and when they are not in use they shrink down to a very small size.

    I bought this Hozelock reel this year,don't have it on the wall but can be done if I wanted it;-

    I would also say to look at the Hozelock range.  I wouldn't touch the Xhose type with a barge pole.  Heard too many bad reports about them and they can't be repaired if they are damaged.

    I have a wall mounted Hozelock retractable 40m hose.  It's fabulous.   Best garden toy I've had in ages.
