Collapsible Water Hose As Seen On TV: What You Need To Know

You may have seen many advertisements for collapsible water hoses on TV. Let’s check how they perform in real life.

We have reviewed the Pocket Hose Bullet which expands to 25 feet and is a garden hose from the BulbHead Company. It is a portable water hose, and you don’t need any hose reels to store it after use.

The main advantage of the Pocket Hose Bullet is that it is light in weight and you can easily carry it from your garage to your garden and back.

You can expand it to a full-sized garden hose when you turn the water on, and it retracts back to its original size and length when the water is turned off. This makes it very easy to use. The Pocket Hose Bullet is very portable and flexible.

With a standard garden hose that is heavy, you are left with a mess most of the time when you want to coil the hose. The tube will be tangled and will kink, and you will need to spend a lot of time to unravel it and to coil it back into a garden hose reel. This is not so when it comes to the Pocket Hose Bullet. It is very easy to use, and the water drains on its own. You don’t have to worry about it getting tangled. You don’t need to waste your time untangling it. You don’t need to remove any kinks as it does not kink.

Winding a normal garden hose back into the garden hose reel is a pain on its own. With the Pocket Hose Bullet, the problem of winding the garden hose gets solved as it is very easy to coil once the water is drained out. Also, for a 25 feet hose, you need to wind it only once it contracts into its original size which is around 8 feet. When you are done with watering your garden, all you need to do is switch off the water and the hose shrinks. The water too automatically drains out of the hose which makes it very easy to coil and store.

Another advantage of the Pocket Hose Bullet over a standard garden hose is that since it is not heavy, you don’t need to drag it over your garden. This ensures that your flower beds are not damaged. A normal garden hose automatically drags across the garden and can harm your flower beds. Since the Pocket Hose Bullet expands as the water fills, it ensures that it extends on its own without damaging your flower beds.

    Spray Nozzle is removable: One of the advantages of the Pocket Hose Bullet is that it comes with an adjustable setting spray nozzle. There are three-speed adjustments in the nozzle. You save money as you don't need to buy a separate nozzle. The three spray options that the spray nozzle offers are fine mist, a pinpoint stream, and a full power stream.

Cons:

  • Prone to leaks: Though the Pocket Hose Bullet is made of high-quality material, in general, all expandable or collapsible hoses are prone to leaks. The Pocket Hose Bullet is not an exception. Make sure that you avoid using it with pressure washers or pumps and avoid dragging it over rough surfaces.
