answer 4
Ok, so granted, a product should come out of the package ready to use without falling apart, but this product has a construction flaw that causes one of the plastic connectors to pop off after a short time. BUT, if you love this hose as much as I do it is worth the small alteration you have to do to it to make it last. If your hose hasn't had an end pop off yet it is a super easy fix. The problem is the aluminum crimp holding the hose to the connectors at either end- it simply is not crimped tight enough to hold very much water pressure, so it pops off. Before using the hose again go to the hardware store and buy 2 of those metal circular hose clamps that you tighten with a flathead screw driver. The size range of the clamp has to cover 3/4 inches as that is the size of diameter at the connectors. Put one of these clamps on each end of the hose on top of the existing metal crimp and tighten as tight as you can with a screwdriver by hand. That easy! For me, the slight narrowing of the diameter caused by the clamp had the added benefit of also making it so the hose expanded during use without having to close the valve to get it to expand. If your connector is already popped (as mine was# you can still fix it but it takes a little more work. I had to cut off some of the fabric outer to get to the rubber hose inner. Then I used a needle nose plier to expand the crimp so that I could shove the newly trimmed inner & outer back through the crimp and then push the connector into the hose before adding the clamp- if you wet the black connector it slides into the hose much easier. The wider to can manage to open the crimp the easier it will be to get the connector all the way into the crimped hose. NOTE: The connector is actually 2 parts snapped together so when you push the connector into the hose be sure to use a cylindrical devise #like the needle nose pliers) to apply the pressure from inside the connector instead of pushing on the threaded lip otherwise the 2 pieces will separate when you push and you'll have to take the hose apart again to put the 2 pieces back together.
I hope this helps you because this hose really is great. My 83 year old mother lives in Las Vegas so she has got to be able to water her outdoor plants often and she was always struggling with heavy, kinking rubber hoses. She LOVES this hose for watering her backyard plants/trees and now that I figured out a way to reinforce it I am going to buy her another for the front yard!

IMO, it doesn't need to be installed on a reel, it is so lightweight and when you turn the water off, it shrinks back down to the smaller size, you can easily keep it in a small bucket. It takes me less than 2 minutes to put the hose away, from the time I turn the water off til it's in the bucket all nice and neat and put away. Hope this helps.

It is a good idea to do this, as the hose can mildew inside. When I disconnect mine, I simply run it through my hands from the spray end to the connector end to drain water out. This is still quicker than recoiling a traditional hose. I then store in a bucket in the garage.

I have a sprayer attached to mine. When I turn the water off I continue spraying until the water is gone. It literally takes seconds. While the water is emptying, it retracts back to you. Then you just pick it up and put it in a flower pot or something. Awesome product.

Wal-Mart is pretty good about accepting returns without a receipt, but you will get whatever the current price is, so far this item has not had a price reduction, so you should get a full refund.

I believe the faucet is 1/2 inch thread, and most garden hoses, including the pocket hose is 5/8... So to answer your question is no, it will not fit, but there is a manufacture that makes an adapter that will screw onto the faucet and inturn will allow you to attach the garden hose...
