Has anybody had one of these? Thinking of getting one, but surely a tangle free hose is a bit too good to be true

Yeah they're really good just wish I purchased at this price I paid over £40 off amazon

Sorry to be completely thick but does this mean will be able to attach to kitchen taps?

It didn't connect to mine but did to my garden tap think it depends on what tap you have in your house though.

check ebay weekly deals I bet that was very similar for less than 13 quid delivered

yes but you have to be really naive to think lidl ones are better value. I'm actually big fan of lidl shopping regularly but in this case lidl is just not a better value. choice is yours

It's not lidl ones ' it's the genuine stretch hose you know as seen on TV etc...

Thanks OldEnglish - needed one too.

I've read somewhere these explode....

After dragging around over time the hose shell wears producing holes or weak points
the pressure in these makes the internal hose part swell out and.......BOOM oO

Had mine a year and still fine I think it comes down to operator error ha

Had 3 of these types Asda,Lidl and Xhose all of the inner tube burst,Lidl one lasted till I turned water on,Asda one got to use twice, X Hose used once.widely reported about these type of hoses bursting,get a proper hose instead. (and no I did not drag them around and yes my water pressure is not excessive.)

I got this one 2 weeks ago from Amazon, FLEXIBLE EXPANDABLE HOSE PIPE LIGHT WEIGHT NON KINK WATER SPRAY NOZZLE. (Blue, 100 ft) for £14-98. I read the reviews about the outer sheath coming away so undid the connections and super glued the blue sheath onto the coupling and have used it non stop at my car cleaning business at the carpark to prewash the cars without any issues.

Had a JML one for about a week used twice very carefully but started leaking, so not user error maybe a faulty one but there must be a few faulty ones as I read reviews afterwards and there are quite a few bad ones out there, must be down to the type. Shame as a lot easier to manage than a big hefty one that needs rolling up every time.

So good luck hope you get a better one than I did. Wouldn't bother again, once bitten...

Was looking at this the other week, but i was put off by this review because my 4 year old lad normally washes my van & takes care of most of the gardening duties. (_;)

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this product it is dangerous, 2 July 2015

Please do not carry on selling this product it is dangerous because i have just bought one and have now sent it back because the nozzle flew off and the pipe inside the hose split and water was flying all over the place so if a child was handling it it could of been nasty please do not buy this product

It wasn't cheap so not sure you are on the right track there. Might be cheaply made but not cheap. Looks like as many are bad as good by reviews.

My point is your giving a review on a different brand of hose , i have had no problems with this hose and its 4/5 stars on Amazon so I'm not the only 1 who's had excellent use out of this brand .

I agree don't risk buying the Amazon one or tbh any stretch hose type product. The nature of the animal is it needs pressure to expand the inner hose thus unless you make good tap and trigger end connections there is a danger of them fyling off because of the pressure caused by the design!

How do you know it is the same brand as Amazon, no reference to make on Lidl site. In fact looks exactly like the JML one I had problems with, so could be that make. Not sure it matters on make like above has said they all have bad reviews whatever make they are.

£16.99 on groupon with reel. As usual Lidl are overcharging for their expensive low quality trash yet reckon to be well priced.

Jase99 renowned for posting Anti-Aldi and Lidl drivel, nutjob.

These are great while they last. really good. but mine has failed after a year and you can't repair. also shorter than the stated length unless you have massive presure :-(. sorry don't think they are robust enough so won't buy again
