Product Info

Finishing the Charcoal range off with the 25m Hi-Flow option. 

Difference between Hi-flow and standard reels

Most retractable reels (including Hoselink’s standard range) use a 12mm internal hose diameter, whereas the Hi-flow model features a larger 14mm size. This equates to a higher water flow, providing better pressure to clean the car, drive the sprinkler or water hard-to-reach plants. Ultimately you get a better watering experience overall!

Solution for low water pressure

Watering with low water pressure takes longer because of the slower flow rate and shorter distance thrown by sprayers and sprinklers. Retractable reels (particularly longer models) are commonly known for having an impact on water pressure in comparison to a standard garden hose. The 25m Hi-flow Retractable Reel offers the best of both worlds by allowing for better water pressure with the convenience of a retractable reel.

If you’ve had enough of leaking, bursting hose fittings and unsightly hoses that tangle and kink, then Hoselink’s Retractable Hose Reel will revolutionise the way you water. For those wanting to maintain or increase water pressure, the 25m Hi-flow Retractable Reel is the ideal way to enjoy watering your garden, every day.

How it works

The 25m Hi-flow 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.

This product features 14mm hose connectors (denoted by the green, instead of yellow nut) at both hose ends, which are compatible with all our standard 12mm fittings.

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 occurring. 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. What surfaces can I mount the hose reel to and how?

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. Hoselink's Retractable Mounting Post is the perfect solution. 

Q. Can I use the Retractable Hose Reels with hot water?
A. No, they are not recommended for use with hot water. Maximum water temperature is 40 degrees.

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.
