FAQs | What is the difference between the standard and Hi-flow Hose Reels?

Our standard Hose Reels feature a 12mm garden hose, whereas the Hi-flow Reels come with a slightly larger 14mm internal diameter garden hose. Because of the design, all retractable hose reels will reduce water pressure to varying degrees. With the larger diameter hose in the Hi-flow model, we've calculated a 25% better water flow rate in comparison to our standard models. Unless you have extremely high water pressure, we would always recommend the Hi-flow model for the best watering experience. In particular, anyone who has low to medium water pressure at their home should choose the Hi-flow model to minimise loss of pressure.
