bought 50ft one from Homebase £37.99 used for first time attached to telescopic lance to clean my conservatory roof. Lasted 30 minutes hose came detached from fitting elastic ate inner contracted into the depths of the main hose so completely useless cant be reattached to the fitting. By the way roof was 8 ft from tap so 50 ft tap not over stretched just to weak attached to its fitting in factory!
took back got replacement no problem.
just used it to clean my truck. Replacement 50 ft hose attached to another tap in my drive 4 ft from truck. This time lasted 10 minutes max! Taking back tommorow for refund exact same problem hose attachment to connector in factory not strong enough. Came off elastic ate dinner hose disappears up depths of inner hose and can't be reattached!
came in to look on internet to see what other people thought.
for the short time the hoses lasted they were brilliant! However cheap attachment low quality made in China but high cost in shop not worth it!
AVOID DISSAPOINTMENT (stick with traditional hose on a quality reel) persevere with the kinks and thank goodness you not soaked from continual x hose attachment breakages.
