That's when a pocketknife comes in handy!

I tried the same concept with a 5 gallon bucket & after a few times of trying to coil it back into the bucket I decided to give up & just coil it as best I could.

Sometimes the shore reel cord that is "SO" is not long enough so I keep my home made one in basement in a tote.

Hey Ryan, here's what I use. I saw someone using one of these about 4 years ago. I went to Ace's the place and bought the smallest hose reel I could get. A LOT less hassle breaking down. Works GREAT!

I'm heading south, so I should not see any more cold weather.

They now make collapsible hoses that are drinking water safe.

Kev, I would have been the last person on Earth to buy collapsible hoses but I actually love them and that's all I buy now. Their weight and storage capability outweighs any other issue for me.

LOL. I was never a fan either but figured I would give them a try. I will never look back now it's so much easier.

revjeffrey and kev,
Which hose(s) do you have? Have talked to several who said they don't hold well...
Thanks,
Joe

Attachment 7060 this is the one I use probably got it at one of the big box stores blue nylon aluminum ends it just seemed like it was better quality than others. It's lightweight and fits in a little bag it works for us I do know one thing these are not hot water hoses if you attempt to wash your car vehicle or use hot water they will burst.
