You're OK!

Since you don't have the receipt, they just give you a gift card for Walmart. If you had the receipt it would go back on your credit card. It was a very easy return. I was in the same situation and the lady said she was getting a ton of them returned.

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 think they are also very aware that this item is junk and are used to getting them back, why they don't stop selling it is beyond me.

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.

There was no nozzle that came with it when I got it at Walmart but please do not order it online. This hose was a great idea but it will pop really fast and then it is useless.

answer 1
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.

Question

Is this actually the 'PocketHose' brand? or is it a copy cat of the pockethose? there is a difference.

Since they don't show the packaging I can't tell if it is in fact a 'PocketHose' brand. There are other copy cats that I'm sure are not as good.
consumer reports said that the 'pockethose' was a better hose.

I wouldn't recommend leaving this hose out in the sun for any longer than it takes to wash a car or water a garden.

If left in the sun pressurized it will pop a leak after a few hours.

These hoses are thin both in diameter and material. They aren't really intended for heavy duty use. A sprinkler running all day would be heavy duty use for this hose.

Short duration jobs where you need to get a hose out and then put it away or move it around, though, these are great.
