useless item scam at best

published

totally useless unuseable, my husband got upset when it started leaking, as if it was my fault. Non returnable, as it was bought from the eastern states. would not recommend at all

Purchased in June 2020 for $30.00.

Incentivised Review No

Pitiful quality

published

I've had 5 of these hoses and none of them have lasted more than 4 weeks. All split and leak water. Quality is just non existent but the idea is great!

Purchased in December 2019 at Bunnings Warehouse for $24.00.

Grow Not Hose by Holman

published

Mine has burst after 3 uses. Will return to Bunnings and replace with something else I think. Good idea but as most reviewers suggest, Needs some tweaking before I can recommend it to others. I purchased it as it was light and easy to move around, a feature most welcome.

Date PurchasedJan 2019

Embarassing gift

published

Don't waste your money to the low lives who manufactured this product who are undetectable.
Bought 5 of the mongrels. 3 for myself 2 as gifts. One lasted a month another popped first time used and 3 in between.
pop goes1 2 3 4 5 pop goes $200.00.
Great concept and love the idea so practical light and space saver easily mobile. I would gladly pay double for it I knew it would last for a while.
Anyone now of something similar that lasts.

Only used 3 times before popping

published

I had same problem as other reviewer, it developed a bubble half way along hose on 2nd use then popped on 3rd use. Very disappointed . It cost $50 so I was expecting it to last for a while (at least 6months) as $10 hoses from bunnings last at least a couple of months before springing a leak, I suppose dearer isn't always better.

Great concept but definitely needs tweaking.

published

Hose developed a bubble about a metre down and burst with a bang. Can't get hold of manufacturers as there is no contact details on box. I think they have done this on purpose. The manufacturers must know that the product is faulty so made sure they couldn't be reached.

Splits in the hose

published

I have had 3 of these now and all have split in the internal silicon hose. If only it would last as I like the idea light weight and space saving. I have also had problems with it bursting off the tap fittings as well, but when it splits you can no longer use it. :-(

Expandable Hose

published

Hose worked fine for a couple of weeks. Then water leakage appeared towards top and got progressively worse. Hose was always treated with care. The expandable hose is a great concept, but needs to be fine-tuned.

These are Hopeless

published

I purchased one of these hoses from Homeart. The girl behind the counter told me to make sure the fittings are tight and this I did. I could not stop the hose from leaking and on further investigation I found a crack in the fitting.
I returned the hose to Homeart and they give me another one. While there I enquired had they had many of these hoses returned? The answer was yes. The replacement hose I got also leaks at the fitting. Warning don't buy them they are rubbish.

Not good enough

published

I bought an Expand-a-hose from Homeart. One end blew off at the first time we used it. We have been trying to fix it with conventional hose parts but have been unsuccessful. I was going to write to the manufacturers but there is no information on the box of the manufacturer. So, I cannot contact them to fix the problem. I have just wasted money.
I was thinking it would be good in a caravan as it would not take up a lot of space. I wass wrong as it blew off at the first attempt.
The connections where the hose is attached to the fittings is not firm enough so the hose blows off.

Excellent love its functionality

published

Brilliant product, expands to an amazing length and retracts when water turned off. Great compact size for storage especially when living in a rental. Not tangles, no kinks, no messy gardening hose lying about. I have a squeeze garden attachment on the end and when not in use say when washing car, the water does not burst the hose or any of the attachments. A full $10 cheaper than pocket hose at big W.
Love it expands to 50ftand retracts for storage. Does not burst off at attachments. Cheaper than big w pocket hose
