The Hose That Grows...

This is SFW.
.
After seeing the green squiggly Pocket Hose on TV, I decided to get one and try it out, and my findings....not bad.
Good solid connections, moves around easily and lightweight, when done after water is removed, just wrapped it around my hand then threw it in the bucket.
Easy peasy, as Sheldon would say.
Going to buy a couple more.

will it still extend if it's used with only its open end or do you have to have a spray gun connected to it so it'll extend under pressure?

Edelbrock E-Force 1593 & Magnaflow exhaust for that healthy American sound. Before SC 354 RWHP, after SC 484 RWHP. That's all I can do and still pass California smog.

Well we'll see when you become a septuagenarian (for you people in Rio Linda, that's in your 70's).

Used it yesterday for the first time, I'll report later how it has held up, hopefully longer than yours.
