    Eley Garden Hose Reel

    So I've been kicking around the idea for awhile about the best way to manage my garden hoses. With all the grading work I have done over the last few months it's been imperative that I get enough water on the sod and seeded areas. I only have a single spigot on the back of my home which requires me to run 100'-150' of hose to the back of the property to water everything. I found myself hand coiling the hose into one of my flower beds or leaving it lying in the lawn even after finishing. Since I run 3/4" anti kink garden hoses for additional flow I found that many reels are not big enough to hold this amount of hose let alone a heavy duty anti kink hose.

    After plenty of research and trying to find other manufacturers and vendors and commercial distributors I still found that the best move to make for my situation was an Eley Garden Hose Reel with the Extra Capacity kit. It comes 3/4" flow capable however they didn't have 3/4" inlet hoses in stock so I'll just get my own from a local joint. What really sold me was the reviews in many places and that very enticing 10yr warranty.

    This is another one of those things where I hope my wife never goods the name or model number and finds out the true price.

    I really like it, but like you said, my wife would kill me if she knew how much they cost. She would say "I can buy a lot of hose reels at yard sales for $250" problem is, most of them leak or are just junk.

    Ive been looking for a couple good hose reels. Trouble I find is that the center drum is more suited to an air hose (small diameter) than a garden hose.
    The hose ends up being flatter on the smaller diameter reels, and that limits flow. These look like they are similar.

    Mine are for around the house, 2-3, 100' hose on each, but Im REALLY tired of the Suncast type and other plastic ones that last a few seasons, then something breaks and you have to get a new one. My Grandpa had several that were a light duty steel that outlasted these by a long shot.

    I wish they would make the handles on these just a wee bit taller, especially on the 2-wheeled version. Once tipped back the handle height is a bit short if you are over 5 feet tall.

    For about $100 less, I bought this Liberty Hose Reel on Amazon a couple of years ago. I keep 300 feet of hose on it. Easy to move from place to place, and easy topull out and re-roll the hose.

    The last one I bought about 5 years ago was $60, plastic, with a self spooling hose guide, but the input fitting and
    rotating sleeve and inner hose hookup are metal.
    2 easy to replace rotating o-ring seals.

    Have about 175' of 3/4" hose on it, inner drum about 4 - 5 inches.

    Made my own rolling cart for it with 8" solid rubber tires (about $25 each).

    Bought it at Lowes, so far just had to replace O-rings once.

    With all the rain you get down there you probably only use it once a year.
