*I was not paid for this review! I received this product free of charge for my honest opinion!
Anybody who has ever used a garden hose knows hoe much of a pain it is to get it all rolled back up and put away neatly. Most of the time, it feels like I'm wrestling with a giant snake trying to get the hose back in the storage box. Sure, there's things that you can turn a crank and it'll roll it up for you, but still that takes a while. A simple, no-fail solution is to get an expandable garden hose!
Ohuhu makes and expandable garden hose that is high quality and very durable! Amazingly, this 25 foot hose can fit into a tiny 7.5" x 4.3" box! This would make a spectacular gift for pretty much anybody. Inside the compact package is the hose, a versatile nozzle, and a spare washer. The hose is only 8.2 feet long when its unexpanded, which is a very manageable length. It is very light and very easy to carry around without being cumbersome. The nozzle has a nice grip and fits in the hand comfortably. It has eight settings - full, angle, shower, mist, center, flat, cone, and soaker - which enables you to choose the best flow for your current activity. The nozzle is very easy to use, I was able to switch the setting with just one hand by turning the ring in front of the markings.
Using the hose was very easy, and somehow oddly satisfying. I simple screwed one end into my spigot, and screwed the nozzle onto the other end of the hose. I turned my water on and watched the hose expand to a nice full volume. No water leaked whatsoever anywhere, it only came out when I used the sprayer. After I was done, I turned my water off, and the hose stayed full. I just sprayed the last of the water out of the sprayer until the hose was completely empty and shriveled up again. I was able to take the sprayer off, shake the hose to get the last of the water out, and actually fit it back in the box for easy storage! I am very impressed with the ease of use of this awesome hose and the easy nozzle!
