Love this hose. It is retractable and that really makes my life easy. I have such a hard time untangling things, and well, I hate devoting that extra time. With this hose, I do not have to worry. The hose is extra long, so I can complete most projects at my home. There's 18 different ways to lock this hose into place, so you have the option to spray at almost any angle. I really like that. There's also a hose stopper which allows you to decrease or increase the amount of water coming out of the pump. If you like durability, this one gives it to you. The hose is made of UV stabilized polypropylene so it is very strong and corrosion resistant. The water hose has a strong, consistant water flow. It always makes my life easy when I use this hoes. I have had it just a few months now, but I know I will get more than my money's worth when the summer months roll around again. This is a hose that's 'got it going on.' I would recommend it!
