In search of a decent 50ft/15m Hose pipe

Posted 13th MayEdited by:"whiteranger87"
Can anyone help on suggestions for a 50ft/15m hose pipe?
I've had 2 of those expandable Amazon/Ebay Specials in the space of 18 months and they just keep splitting.
I need a sturdy/Decent one, expandable would be good because of lack or storage space, but these unbranded ones are just useless.
I'm open to any/all suggestions though Thanks all!!

If you want it to last buy a traditional non expanding hose from any of the big brands like hozelock, Karcher, gardena
I don’t think you’ll go wrong with this, I’ve had mine years and it’s left out all winter.
The only thing that’s has gone is the multi-spray nozzle and that’s because I threw it on the floor rather than placing it.
*i’ve not checked that’s a good price

Does look very good! Is there much leakage at the mains/connector point?

No problem, even the hozelock expanding ones seem to fail.
if its still available; £39.99 auto retracting unit from Aldi with 3 yr warranty. bought one a month ago. no complaints

Someone else told me this but I couldn't see it in my local. I also bought the £19.99 strimmer from their garden range 3 weeks ago and it's been replaced twice. I like to give Aldi the benefit of the doubt, but I've been stung on their non-food items too many times
I got the Hozelock anti flex pipe as my old standard one would twist over time and cause kinks which eventually started leaking. This new one is great, really tough.

I have a brass tap connector and the rest is Hozelock plastic connections and I don’t lose a drip. My dad is a tight git and spent my whole childhood annually replacing his hose, he’s since moved to Hozelock having seen mine.
This is the one I got Hozelock Tricoflex Ultramax Hose, Grey, 12.5 mm x 25 m amazon.co.uk/dp/…M5J
It doesn't come with fittings though, I used the ones from my old pipe.
Not cheap but it’s the silver coloured hose

reel n 25m hose

I did similar, upgraded from the yellow to an auto reel silver hose don’t look back but it was £££

Edited link fix

Fair comment. Some of it is quite frail but I keep receipts and 3 years warranty has been honoured. The hose reel seems to be working fine at the moment.
