We were in desperate need of a hose reel for the back yard. Our 100ft hose was constantly snaked around all over the place. This was the hose on a good day:
Everyone tripped over it because it's in a high traffic area. However, I didn't want to settle for a cheap plastic reel from Target or Home Depot. I wanted a nice one that would last for years and not degrade every summer. I wanted an industrial looking, wall mounted, pivoting hose reel. And so I found this one at Gempler's .
I've loved it! The pool area and side yard are in two different directions; the hose unwinds easily either way. It's effortless to reel out and reel in. I would love to have a bright yellow hose to contrast against the grey wall...one thing at a time.
