These are a waste of time / money and floor space. Within seconds of turning on the water to try it for the first time, it popped. Will be returning mine today. I don't usually write reviews but I feel the world needs to know bout this one. Worst product ever.
Good idea for a hose but they don't work. I bought one and it busted. Took it back and got another one and it did the same thing. Would give it a 0 if it was listed.
Well..they looked good on TV. :o( The diameter is very small, it doesn't expand or collapse very much when the water is turned on, and after two uses the plastic valve included has already broken. It is very light and easy to carry from one place to another, so I removed the valve piece, and as long as the plastic end does not break I'll keep using it. If that breaks it's going back.
I bought this (after seeing all the commercials) and couple weeks of rarely using it, it broke! The hose broke off from the black connector... couldn't fix even if I wanted too!! Brought it back to Walmart to get my money back!! If you do buy this hose, make sure you keep the receipt because you WILL want your money back when it brakes.
I would not recommend this to anyone!! I had this product Not even 2 weeks it start leaking from connected point. please look at photos
You can not put any pressure on the hose or it will burst.
I bought this hose to fill my horse's water buckets and the on/off knob broke after the third bucket. The hose is a very nice concept but very poor quality plastic is used. I would recommend not buying this product until they resolve these issues.
I love this hose it wont kink even when you fold it multiple times it still comes out full pressure it does have a problem though no matter what head i put on it ,it drips and the heads are hard to get back off but other than that i love it , no popping here
first time tried it, on/off plastic lever broke off,,tried to use plumber tape to repair, no luck,
Also, the darn thing did NOT retract when water shut off (I held the lever).
Absolutely useless. I would recommend that Walmart take this off their shelves, not up to Walmart's usual standard. Had lost original sales slip, cannot return. think I learned a lesson, no more TV commercial "stuff".
When I first bought this I would have given it a 5 star rating because it was light and it retracted enough for what I need it for. I've always released the pressure because I wanted it to last as long as it could. My normal use is 5 minutes a day to water my herb garden. Less than a week later it created a pin hole leak. I put a type of putty glue on it and it seems to do the trick. A few days later another one popped up and I repeated the fix. I was getting holes every day I used it until one day it just burst. It looks like a bullet hole was shot from the inside out. I've had it for less than a month.
I'm not saying it's a bad concept. If you own one never close the valve to allow pressure to expand and weaken the rubbery material in the center of the hose. If you choose to close the valve be aware where you use it. I had my garage door open when it burst and it shot about gallon of water into my garage (my man cave) and that the real reason I decided to give this hose a review.
Unfortunately, it broke within a month of buying it. When my husband returned it the cashier said that there had been abut 20 returns of it in the last 2 weeks. Great idea, and before it started leaking from the connecter like it was, it was a great hose, just not durable.
Broke with first use!
My outside faucet caused stress on the connection so I bought an extension. That worked but there still was a little drip. Then, today, I turned on the water and the little drip turned into a gusher. There was no strain on the connection for a couple of weeks. Then I also noticed a stream of water coming out of a hole in the middle of the hose. No explanation for that - just a weak spot I guess. Then it burst at that point. My wife is the "Take Back Queen" and if I can find the receipt maybe she can get our money back.
I do not recommend that any one buy this product. Stick to the traditional hose for about the same price.
I wish I would have bought this through Wal Mart but I didn't, I bought several on-line direct. That was a mistake because you can expect half of these hoses to fail in 2 weeks. The other half will last six weeks. The manufacturer is very aware of their dismal quality and does not except returns under any condition. In a box of 8: 7 broke their twist shut off in 1 day. 4 burst at the cheap pot metal twist that mates to the hose end. 1 had a hole in the line before it was attached to the house. The rest failed within 6 weeks. Keep your receipt, you're going to need it real soon.
Used it 5-6 times before it developed a huge leak right at the hand sprinkler connection, making it useless as it cannot be repaired as you could a normal hose. Too bad, it was a good idea.
DO NOT BUY .... This hose leaks from everywhere, even after putting the thin white liner, it still leaked at the plastic partS ... returned to Walmart and got my money back. DO NOT BUY ....
I received this hose as a gift for my birthday and thought it was the greatest gift ever until a couple months went by and now it has a leak in the actual hose. Basically the hose is JUNK, I used it to wash my cars carrying it across a concrete driveway and would guess I used it a dozen times, now it's just another item to add to the trash. After I sprang the leak I examined the hose and found the outer layer of nylon material was torn in a number of places which would have turned into future leaks. I will say I never had an issue with pressure or leaks at the valve or nozzle end like other reviewers and really did like the hose but can only see it being useful if you're carrying thru grass, it's just not made to hold up being pulled across any sort of ruff surface.
I bought several and they all are leaking from connectors to the hose itself.
DO not waste your money.
I have replaced this hose 5 times NO JOKE! The ONLY positive thing I have to say is that at least Walmart keeps replacing it! The levers have broken off, they spring leaks and one completely separated itself from its plastic end cap, like the pressure was too much; their supposed to be tougher right? This was all within one month of use, I have used it often, but it's planting season, that's what they're for! I guess if you just want it to get a drink from then this is your hose but if you plan on taking it across your yard, don't bother!!!
About 2 months ago I bought two of these hoses. I thought it would be a great idea since I hate dragging around a regular hose. The first few times I used them they work awesome. A great invention no doubt. Then I go out to water the lawn. The both start leaking like crazy. So much that I couldn't get it to even build any pressure. So I take them back to Wal-Mart. They are really nice about exchanging both of them for me even though I didn't have my receipt or packaging. Go to use the brand new hoses for the first time today. Both of them are leaking from the open/close valve and from the threading where it looks like it cracked. Both of them! I called Telebrands and they said they know it's been a huge issue with all of them and I was told to just continue returning them until I get one that has been fixed. Searched the internet and found nothing but bad reviews. I wouldn't buy one until those reviews start turning positive.
