Pocket Hose, 50-Ft.

As seen on TV, the pocket hose is small enough to fit in your pocket, then expands automatically to a giant full sized 50' hose. Just turn on the water & watch this mini hose grow to maximum length like magic. Shut off the water and it shrinks back to its original mini size, practically putting itself away. So easy to use and it never kinks, twists or tangles like ordinary hoses. Super lightweight & easy to handle, convenient to hang or store anywhere. Strong enough for any tough job, perfect for gardens, terraces, patios & more.

what the video carefully

Bought it on impulse at my local TrueValue. Only tried it once so far. It expanded and delivered water, did not leak, and the connectors did not break ir fall off (major complaints found elesewhere) BUT it merely "shrinks" down to about 25-30 feet in length and you still have to wind it up like a regular garden hose. You'd need a hydraulic press to get it back to the original shape "that fits in the palm of your hand". If you watch carefully, you'll see that technically it does just what the video shows and that it's never shown actually shrinking back to that original size
Pros: is very light weight
Cons: does not shrink a whole lot
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

One Word - AMAZING!

I was skeptical to purchase this hose, based on watching the commercials on TV, but this hose does everything that the commercial says & works better than I thought it would. The hose comes with a screw-on lever (only con is that it's plastic - don't drop it!), but the lever lets you control low or high water pressure, and the water pressure on high is actually better than it is on my regular garden hose! I used it to clean hard caked mud off of the concrete and clean my water fountains & when I shut it off it shrunk right back small enough to put in a small planter pot. I went back to True Value & bought 2 more - one for my rain barrel & the other for my front yard. AMAZING!
Pros: does exactly what the commercial says it does, shrinks back to a small hose, lightweight
Cons: plastic lever to control water pressure
I would recommend this to a friend!
