Choosing the right Hoselink hose

Here at Hoselink we get asked a lot which is the best hose. The answer isn’t actually that straight forward. It depends on what you want from your hose and the conditions that you will be using it in.

We have a hose to suit everyone, here are some key points about each hose to help you make your decision.

The Auto Rewind Hose Reels

  • ‘Stop anywhere’ Locking Mechanism, so no need to pull the whole hose out every time you want to use it close to the reel.
  • Easy to unwind and easy to put away meaning there is no more untidy hose lying around.
  • Because it is not lying around in a tangled mess, it is unlikely to kink.
  • Reel pivots 180o on the bracket to face you wherever you are in the garden.
  • Reel can be padlocked to the bracket for security.

Auto Rewind Hose Reels provide the ultimate in easy watering - it's kept neat and tidy on its wall mount, you don't have to get all wet and dirty winding the hose up when you're finished and because you only pull out what you need, you don't have to worry about tangles and kinks.  Because this product is wall mounted, it is well suited to home owners.

If your idea of a great hose is one that it durable and really hard to kink, then this is likely to be it.  Because it's made from premium grade materials and has a sturdy construction, it is going to last you a good long time.  If you keep it in large loops on a hose hanger, it should be easy to use as you move around the garden.

The No-Kink Hose
