Maire O' Leary: Thanks for your video. From the comments it looks like both have design faults but I think I will try to pocket hose because it is cheaper and I want to try something new as I am sick of tripping over my hose in the polytunnel. Do you have to keep them turned off to get them to expand?
Mattwm2818: I bought 2 x-hose pros and a pocket hose. I have not tried the pocket hose yet, but when I tried one x-hose pro, it worked fine the first time, but the 2nd use, it kept getting clogged up in the inner hose, I think it kinked. I finally got it working and accidently wrapped it around a rose bush and it popped. Had to throw the first one away. I got the 2nd one out and it worked fine and I finished the job. I'll see how it works next time. I would suggest getting the pocket hose because if it breaks, it's cheaper. Paying the extra for an x-hose pro didn't seem to pay off.
jbofrtwp: The pocket hose I bought exploded after leaving water pressure on with the nozzle turned off just for a short time. This was after a week or so of use. If I bought a similar hose in the future I might try the DAP XHose Pro that is suppose to be stronger and it has brass fittings rather than plastic. I definitely would not recommend buying either hose in this video after having mine explode after limited use.
J o n a t h a n: mine exploded and hit me in the head ouch my head hurts now, good idea but the quality's crappy if that hoes was made in the USA it last me a life time. cheap Chinese crap.
Désir Choucoutou: Référence de la commande ZQOLLQCBW – passée le 2015-01-08. Malgré plusieurs Courriels, ma commande n'a jamais été expédiée et je n'ai eu aucune réponse à mes mails. J'ai ma facture mon justificatif de paiement par carte. Dois je penser que je me sois fait arnaqué? Je trouve cette entreprise irrespectueuse envers ses clients ou désorganisée, ou je doute fort de son honnêteté. En tous les cas vous m'avez dégoûté des achats en ligne.
tjdann64: Please make sure your own equipment is functional (leaking y-fitting, etc.). It's hard to take you seriously sir.
Jakobi Powell: I have the pocket hose.
Matt McNeice: why not take 2 minutes ant fix that leak? if this were a scientific test, it wouldn't even pass peer review....
Stephie Deng: what about the new stretch hose at robert dyas
Humboldt Greenthumb: bunk!!!!!
Dan Drew: These hoses did not work for me. They exploded within 6 months. I really wanted them to work :(
gloria house: These products are definitely a waste of good money. I have had 4 of these pocket hoses and they exploded after less than three uses. They have been replaced by the company but what a farce. They all break.
arabia d: The only test that matters is durability and my understanding is neither are anything more than a gimmick based on durability.
Voodoo8648: I have used Hose Xs for 2 years, check out my video review
R Leslie: The real issue is durability and cut/abrasion resistance.
Nozzleman22: I've had 2 pocket hoses, both lasted about 1 month..they SUCK..Great idea, cheap manufacturing...I'm now back to my reliable rubber hose.
pango cloaker: pfff yeah right
MickieFan226: Don't buy either of these. A friend of mine works at Bed Bath & Beyond and told me that she gets so many returns on these products because they easily pop. Waist of money.
concujak: are there any reliable expanding hoses ? I have had 3 so far, they all explode or rip very easily after a couple months use....
JayzBeerz: Pocket Hose WINS!
Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
