Anyone tried one yet ?
Interesting but no - first time I've seen it. Would be interested in the reviews, though. Thanks for highlighting it:thumb:
was on tv yesterday on one of the "selly telly" channels.
does look a good bit of kit.
Check out some reviews, on say Amazon. Most I have read say they are crap.
The tv advert shows them unfolding on a smooth shiny surface which is rarely the case on sites.:thumbdown:
looked at the Amazon reviews and i see what you mean....shame really as they look good. :Sad:
I bought a copy at Fleetwood market just over a week ago. £20 for a 50 foot hose with spray gun screwed on one end. At that price I thought it was worth a punt (at Shrewsbury show last week 50 foot ones were £50)
I removed the spray gun and replaced it with a (female) Hozelock adapter which I already had.
I used it for the first time yesterday to fill the tank when we arrived at Settle and it worked fine. The ground where the tap is isn't the worst I've seen but it is far from smooth and shiny and doesn't appear to have damaged the hose at all.
It is a lot lighter and takes up a lot less room than the cassette hose I've been using. Time will tell if it lasts.
Looked at these a few months back ,looked good until i read the reviews.:thumbdown:
Are they food quality plastic? or are you running the risk of all those nasty carcinogens leeching out and into your MH water system.
Yes but don't we all use garden type hose to fill from home anyway or plastic cans ?
A Friend bought one and was not impressed. You need very good water pressure, as if you don't once it fills up and you open the end to water garden ect
Yes you guessed right it folds back up on you.
It went back . Did lose the p&p thou.
I read somewhere that this hose is selling in the States for a quarter of the prices being charged here in 'rip-off' Britain! It could be worth buying one there and paying for shipping (it is light) and still saving.
I fell for the hype..
Leaked like a bloody sieve after 2 uses, company def could not be described as helpful..
THEN ( typical me ! ) I did some research and found out just how bad everyone else found them.
My best advice, based entirely on personal experience, is do not bother.. at all !!!!!
Hi, We bought one from e-bay (china), half the price, the best hose I have ever owned. At 75' it makes it easy to take on water, often without having to de-camp. It has a tap connector on one end and a on/off valve on the other, so easy to control at the business end, which incidentally is a good fit into the water filler hole on my van (hands free fill up). After use easy to drain and store, just dump into a carrier bag (unbelievably light) and keep in locker. I guess I recommend it. Mark & Elaine:thumb:
Was going to buy one until someone saw me looking at them in the shop and said don't as they were absolute rubbish!
