    I'm considering buying one.

    Tired of my dog chewing the one I have mounted to the back of the house.

    I think the dog will make short work of it.

    That looks pretty nifty.

    If I were you, I'd check out some online reviews for it to see if its worth you money or time.

    I have two pocket hoses, it's basically the same thing I think. I love them. I heard that they spring leaks after a couple months if you leave them outside. But I think they are amazing

    That's just it Lemmy.........when it recoils/retracts, it's a small little thing, much easier to store.

    Never heard of those kellie......same concept?

    What do you think caught my attention in the commercial? :giggle:

    I don't think it would work. Get a hose real and wind it up neatly inside of a box.



    Want a large hose in your box.

    My opinion, based on experience, is that if you are too lazy to take one hose off then this one will likely be treated the same. :coffee:

    Consumer Reports said that the hose is pretty good and worth the money.

    It is kinda a pain in the ass to put a hose away....even with one of those boxes.

    I always wrap the hose back up. But I have one of those metal things mounted to the brick at the back of my house, that you wrap it around.

    I guess I could take that 10 foot hose every time, drag it to the front, and put it into the garage........but it's a pain. And the dog thinks it is her personal chew toy.

    A smaller, more compact one would just be more efficient, if it's worth the money.

    :lo5:

    Thanks fletch. I think I may take the plunge this weekend.

    aversion training is required.

    something along the lines of, if he chews the hose, you beat the shit out of him with the hose.

    rinse and repeat.

    he'll die or get the message. :hat:

    i should write a book. :idea:































































    i'm just kidding. i love animoes and don't hit etc.

    I have tried. I have tried and tried and tried and tried.

    I have tried smacking her backside, spraying things down with "pepper spray", kennel time when I find things she has chewed - to no avail.

    She has gotten a lot better - a LOT better. She once jumped onto the counter, took full cans of beer, busted through the back screen to take them outside and chew through them. (I think she might have a problem) She once carried a 5 lb weight from my room, through the busted screen out into the backyard - and chewed through that as well. Do you comprehend what it takes to chew through a lead weight????!!!

    Now, she just thinks anything in the backyard is hers to play with or chew. She doesn't eat the patio furniture or the bbq anymore though. :yes:
