Good to begin with ...

published

Bought this on the basis of being trouble free. It was to begin with but then it never could quite finish retracting the last bit of the hose, and then each time it was leaving a longer and longer bit out to the point of it not being practicable.
What I do know was that it if you have a go in trying to rectify said problem, Delrico won’t provide you with a technical diagram for you to see what you might be able to do. They want you to get it fixed by them. Sure let’s spend more money on having it shipped and then repaired ( at your cost if out of warranty) .

This new reel replaced one that had gone grey, quite some years old.

published

As we already have one for the back yard needed to replace the front yard one, old and not working properly, you all know how that is.
Purchased another brand from a well known hardware store, hose delaminated within fifteen minutes of first use, along its length, failure and returned.
Obviously happy with the new Delrico replacement, now front and back. Spent well no more cheap rubbish for us.
Would highly recommend Delrico.

Purchased in for $249.

Reliable and lasts the distance

published

I required reliable retractable hoses for my large gardens and have only just replaced them all after 15 yrs continuous use. Sold the property with hoses still intact and working well. Recently bought 4 more retractable Delrico hoses for our new house and wouldn’t go past them. Well worth the money.

All bling and no zing

published

Fittings look good but leak badly
Retract / hold has a mind of its own sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't
Difficult to get to fully retract as hose jams and won't go any further

2 Year Review

published

Bought the 28m hose reel 2 years ago for my elderly parents based on Choice Review and the slow return mechanism.
No point in reviewing back then as all new things work usually.
Good news is that 2 years later the hose and mechanism have been faultless.
Very pleased and would buy again. Also, as another reviewer noted, the diameter of the hose seems a bit larger than the cheap Chinese ones you can get from Bunnings. So waterflow is very fast.

Forget it they're rubbish

published

I bought three of their retractable hose reels one still retracts after a couple of years the brass fittings fail as do the rubber grips on the fittings, I tried to phone the company on a few occasions only to get a message service and not once have they phoned back, they have a one two warranty once you've got it its too late,
We thought that with the expensive price we'd have reliability and service crap is what we got!!!
You can do far better buying from your local hardware store for half the price that way if they do fail you haven't done your hard earned savings

Why did a buy a DelricoHose Reel.

published

Quite simply because my old Delrico Hose Reel stopped working after many years of continuous use. Because I was so happy with my old Delrico Hose Reel, I purchased another one. I did not shop around or check opposition hose reels. I replaced my old hose reel with exactly the same item and I expect another long life from my new hose reel. Save yourself a lot of time and just buy a Delrico Hose reel.

Very disappointing

published

After purchasing our hose reel it had to be returned soon after due to the hose not retracting. It is now doing so again and leaking badly from the fittings. Expect more from an expensive item but unfortunately we're now out of warranty so guess that's that!

Great product!

Having used one for the backyard for the past 10+years, and it being very reliable, have purchased another for the front yard. Very happy with the durability of the product and easy handling. Happy customer.

Returning Customer

published

We have a large backgarden. Purchased our first Delrico more than 10 years ago and it's still going strong with almost daily use.
Purchasing another one today for the front.
Product has been updated since we purchased our first.
This unit has a thicker hose and brass fittings when compared to other major brands that are a similar price.
Service was friendly and professional.
Couldn't go past them. Would recommend to family and friends. Looking forward to another 10 years of use.

Failed just out of warranty period

published

THESE DO NOT LAST. Paid good money for 2 of these based on a “shire” recommendation. After two years holding and retraction is hit and miss. Hose is ruptured inside one of the reels. The housing is faded and trim has come away. Emailed Deleico for repair instructions with NO response! . Given the price you would be better off buying a name brand at BUNNINGS. Footnote. 3 months later no communication from
Delrico. Pulled them down and thrown them away. Rip off

Same same

published

After researching the product and paying for what I thought was a premium product I was expecting high performance. The reality after 2 years is that it’s the same as any other product out there. The casing has markedly faded and become brittle and discoloured. The hose retracts sometimes and at others not all the way in. The brass fittings are good and the hose has no leaks or dings. The most dissatisfaction comes from the appearance of the casing - old and weathered looking in just over 2 years although it’s located on the south side of a wall and not in sun all the time....cheaper to get something that costs less and replace every couple of years...which I will be doing next time

No better than any other hose

published

Delrico is more expensive than other brands. Casing has become brittle from the sun, hose will not retract correctly and the brass nozle broke soon after being purchased. Will be buying a cheaper brand, with the same warranty.

Second 5 year old reel sent in and returned with locking mechanism fixed properly.

$60 return shipping. No charge for repair.

Two weeks turn around this time.
I'm sure it was the Corona Prevention Restrictions.

Thanks for the fix Delrico.
Much appreciated.

Delrico Retractable Hose Reel

Details

Features:

  • There are 2 different Delrico Retractable Hose Reels: the 25m Retractable Hose Reel with SRS (Slow Return System), and the 14m Retractable Hose.
  • The 25m model is ideal for most Aussie backyards, and can easily reach all corners of the garden, while the 14m hose reel is better suited to smaller gardens, balconies, patios, and courtyards.
  • The Slow Return System on the 25m hose reel slows down the retraction speed to a safe speed if the hose is accidentally let go, giving you extra peace of mind.
  • Both designs have brass fittings (including the fireman’s nozzle, piston, adaptor, and connectors), and a stainless steel spring and clasp.
  • All Delrico Retractable Hose Reels come with a 3-year warranty.

Points of praise:

  • Most reviewers found that the hose reel was long lasting and reliable, thanks to its high quality fittings.
  • They also found that it had a good water flow.

A point of pain:

  • Some reviewers noted that the hose sometimes had trouble retracting - some days it worked, some days it didn’t.
