Are you fed up with leaking, bursting hose fittings and unsightly hoses that tangle and kink? Then get set because Hoselink’s Retractable Hose Reel will revolutionise the way you water!
If you’re new to Hoselink, you’ll find our products are carefully designed to be durable, attractive and most of importantly, easy to use. For average sized gardens, the 20m Retractable Reel is the ideal way to enjoy watering your garden, every day.
How it works
The 20m Retractable Hose Reel is a wall-mounted hose storage unit with a high quality spring-loaded hose. The specially designed ‘stop-anywhere’ locking mechanism secures the hose at any length, eliminating excess hose to prevent kinks and tangles.
To use, you simply pull the hose out to the desired length and pause to lock the hose. All you have to do to lengthen the hose is walk it out further and stop again, wherever you want. Once you’ve finished watering, lightly tug the hose to engage the automatic rewind system and the integrated self-layering mechanism neatly coils the hose into the reel as you walk it back in.
The 20m Retractable Hose Reel is a complete package that arrives fully equipped and includes:
- Spring-loaded hose reel unit pre-fitted with 20m of high quality hose
- Full set of pre-fitted Hoselink no-burst connectors including Universal Tap Connector and Hose Connector with Flow Control so you can easily switch watering accessories
- Premium 7-Function Spray Gun and Accessory Connector with Swivel
- 2m Leader Hose
- Durable Wall Bracket and Installation Hardware
Follow our step-by-step instruction manual or installation video to quickly and easily install the wall bracket onto a solid wall or post using the included hardware kit. Place the hose reel unit onto the bracket and attach the leader hose to the tap. The hose reel unit will swivel 180 degrees on the bracket, following your direction as you water.
Hoselink Retractable Reels are covered by a 2 year warranty and a 30 day money back guarantee.
Easy to Use
Effortlessly keep your hose at any length with the specially designed ‘stop-anywhere’ locking mechanism. To put your hose away, simply give it a gentle tug and the automatic rewind feature and self-layering mechanism retracts and coils your hose saving you time and energy.
Thanks to the cleverly designed mounting bracket, the hose reel pivots 180° and follows your direction around the garden as you water. When you’ve finished, the reel can be stored flat against the wall keeping your garden neat and tidy.
Ready to Go
The Hose Reel comes fully equipped and pre-fitted with Hoselink hose fittings and Metal 7 Function Spray Gun. Simply mount the bracket to the wall using the supplied stainless steel screws and you’re ready to start enjoying hassle-free watering!
With UV stabilised casing, stainless-steel hardware, premium quality hose, and no-burst hose fittings, the 20m Hose Reel is ready for whatever Australia’s tough environmental conditions throws at it. The durable case protects the hose to remain flexible in the cooler months and safe from the heat of the harsh summer sun.
Comfortable to Carry
Integrated carry handles make it easy to lift the Hose Reel from its mounting bracket to transport it wherever you need. With the optional purchase of an Additional Bracket you can use and store your Hose Reel in multiple locations. The Hose Reel can also be padlocked (sold separately) to the bracket to thwart would-be thieves.
The Hose Reel arrives at your door with everything you need including a complete set of Hoselink hose fittings, Metal 7 Function Spray Gun, 20m of quality hose, a 2m leader hose and mounting bracket. Everything is set up and ready to go.

* There is some loss of pressure when using a Retractable Hose Reel (particularly the 20m, 25m and 30m models) with water supplied from a tank. Used in conjunction with a pump, pressure may be sufficient for normal use, however you should take this into consideration before purchasing. If pressure is very low, a regular hose may be more suitable.

Q. Can I put my own hose in this hose reel?
A. No, you cannot put your own hose into the reel nor replace the hose in the reel. The retraction mechanism operates via a spring, and is fitted at the factory.
Q. Which hose from your range comes in the hose reel?
A. This product uses a specifically designed hose for use in the retractable hose reel unit.
Q. Does the hose in the hose reel kink?
A. This hose has been specifically designed for use in an auto rewind hose reel unit and must be soft and pliable so that it retracts easily back into the unit. Although this hose is not designed for kink-resistance specifically, using a hose reel greatly reduces the chance of a kink occuring. This is due to only using the correct length of hose for the task at hand so there is no extra hose for a tangle or kink to occur. In addition, the retraction mechanism on the reel ensures that the hose is always reeled back in a straight line, so the hose does not get twisted (a common cause of kinks).
Q. My tap is 3m away from where I need to put the hose reel. What can I do?
A. You can add an additional length of hose to the leader hose in order to reach the water supply. To do this, you will need a suitable length of hose with Hoselink connectors on either end. If you have a suitable hose length for this purpose, we recommend purchasing a Hose Joiner Set (2410). Alternatively, we sell Leader Hose Extensions in 1.5m and 5m lengths pre-fitted with connectors, for your convenience.
Q. Does the hose reel have to be mounted?
A. Yes, because it uses tension for retraction and extension, the hose reel unit must be mounted for correct operation to a solid wall or post.
Q. If I would like to mount the reel onto a post, how deep should the post be into the ground?
A. The post depth required depends on a number of factors, including how hard packed the soil is and how much concrete is used. We suggest 0.5m as a safe depth for the post before pouring the concrete. In addition, we would recommend that the hole be 30cm square to provide enough concrete to keep the hose reel firmly in place.
Q. Can I use the Retractable Hose Reels with hot water?
A. No, they are not recommended for use with hot water.
Q. Can I leave the tap turned on at all times?
A. We would recommend turning the water off at the tap at the end of each watering session. The increased pressure from the water may cause unnecessary wear to the internal mechanism of the hose reel, potentially shortening the life of the product.
