SO far so good. Definitely better than expected
SO far so good. Definitely better than expected. At first I was little affraight that I would not be able to install this since I have an aluminum siding on the wall but with little thinking I came up with another method that made it look natural with the face of the home. Since finding a stud behind a siding can be a nightmare, I decided to mount this hose reel on the the wooden frame of my garage door. Even if I ever had to remove this bracket, it would be very easy to patch the screw holes in the frame of the garage. Different story if comes to patching holes in the siding and the external wall behind the siding. So here are the steps I did to hang the Hose Reel; 1. Purchased at Menards 2×6 treated piece of wood that would be appropriate for the outdoor usage. 2. 2 of 1/4×3″ long galvanized deck screws and 4 of 1/4×2 1/2″ screws for outdoor use. The nice thing about these screws is that they are torque style screws (T30) with collar so I didn’t have need for additional washers. They went into the wood very easily and are rated for 1300 ibs of pull weight so in theory should hold the reel in place pretty securely.
I bought this in 2012 and it still going strong so bought another
I may not be the typical install as I bought this and installed in my garage to wash cars in my drive way so it is more protected than an outdoor install BUT that was back in 2012. I only know that because my wife took up gardening and is jealous of the one I have for the cars so I went to look for one for Mother’s Day and noticed the Amazon information bar at top letting me know I had bought this over 6 years ago, I was like ok that meets my bar for a quality product. The only maintenance I have done was a new o-ring for where it attached to water supply which was less than a dollar so overall excellent product. I am just hoping the current model is built like my old one.
No more fighting with hanging up the hose
I have 2 of these. They work well but you don’t want to pull the hose out to the max. That would just hyper extend the springs that make this work so well. When winter comes, take this unit off the wall and bring it inside the garage. If the hose freezes and breaks, you have destroyed the whole unit.
Really nice hose on the reel and an usual sprayer / good value
I have purchased several hose reels lately and this one is one of my favorites, but it also seems sort-of stupid.
