Protect Hoses with Hose Reels, Carts & Trailers

The hose reel is a cylindrical spindle made of metal, fiberglass or plastic to be used for storing hoses. They are an uncomplicated, secure and efficient way to store, transmit and retrieve hoses. They also help prevent accidents as also protect and improve the lifespan of a hose in use. Typically most hoses may get destroyed due to small accidents, usually by the lawnmowers.

A hose reel is therefore really important to properly coil up hoses so that its protected from the sun which during long exposures to the hose can bleach and cause it to dry, crack and then to leak. Hose reels can be fixed in a permanent location or be portable and get attached to a truck, trailer or cart. Important aspects to consider when choosing would be size, shape, and type of hose being used.

If you’re using a commercial hose for your watering needs then you need to make sure that the hose reel you buy is the size of your hose. Also make sure the hose lengths are compatible with the hose reel you are planning to buy. For instance a 50 foot hose will not be compatible and will not fit into a hose reel designed with a optimum capacity of 40 feet.

In general placing a hose that is too long on a hose reel will damage the hose or the hose reel. A hose reel should be sturdy to accommodate and hold the hose when it is filled with water. Similar care should be taken while mounting the hose reel as the weight of water can make it really heavy to mount on weak tables or walls.
