Pocket Hose

These hoses have been out for awhile..you know seen-on-tv info commercial and all. So I decided to try one as I get tired of dragging my old hose around and storing it up in a caddy..well the good news..it arrived quickly..looked cool and light weight and came with a shut-off value attachment.

But as soon as I hooked it up to a lawn sprinkler and turned the water on..the damn hose burst near the sprinkler connection with water flying in all directions..wtf????..I said..this thing is brand new. Contacted Amazon and having it shipped back asap for credit..I'll give it one more chance but that's it!

If they don't burst they wear out incredibly fast, I bought one of the fabric expandable ones and it was worn out after one summer on a wooden deck.

I read the reviews before buying the damn thing..seems to be a real hit and miss..mostly a miss on these hoses but I'd figure to give one a try. Like I said one more chance but that's it.

If your lucky it will last long enough to mold and mildew. Good luck

Seen the commercials, but I'm not much of a fan after reading really bad review.
