What a rip off!

published

What's with the10 yr guarantee claim!!!!!!
As other reviews- surface of sticky black gooo. So perished it's leaving the black residue on the courtyard bricks, hands, deck - which i can't remove. Unusable. Shame also on BUNNINGS for not even acknowledging that they stocked it- doesnt appear on their data base....anymore.... No receipt so I'm going directly to POPE Australia.

Purchased in February 2018 at Bunnings Warehouse for $130.00.


Waste of money

published

If only i had read these reviews first ! Same as all the above comments, black sticky substance on the hose. Bought the "Anti Kink " what a joke. Think this hose kinks more than the cheapest hose that Bunnings sell. Definitely wont be purchasing anything that has Pope on it

Purchased in October 2019 at Bunnings Warehouse for $50.00.

Would Not Buy Again

published

Brought 2 of these Pope Storm heavy duty hoses in 35 meter length from Bunnings in 2017, so just over 2 years old & I have the same problem on both as previously mentioned by other poster. They are both covered in black sticky gum so that your hands get covered in black gunk every time I use them. They don't seem to like the sun!

Paid $139 each for them thinking they would last as they have lifetime guarantee. Not worth the money. Can only find one receipt so can't return them. Would appreciate my money back or two new hoses to replace them that will last more than a year or two.

Can't seem to buy a decent hose these days.

Purchased in August 2017 at Bunnings Warehouse for $139.00.

Poor Quality - Very disappointing- GroPro Storm 20 meter hose

published

The Pope Storm GroPro deteriorated over time leaving a horrible sticky black residur over the hose, as soon as you touch it your hands are covered with a tar like substance. I bought two of these 20 meter hoses and I'm very disappointed. Went back to Bunnings but as they can't trace when I bought them and I have no receipt I can't get them replaced. Bunnings can't even find this product on their system, so I can only think it has beed withdrawn. Don't always think buying expensive products guarantees quality !!

Purchased at Bunnings Warehouse.

Update, whilst this particular product was usless, the service from Pope in getting a refund from Bunnings was second to none, thank you.

Disappointing

published

I bought a Pope hose on a 2 way reel. It is ideal for what I wanted in my courtyard. However the tap attachment unscrews when the reel is moved around and the sprayer fitting cannot be adjusted from a full stream. Great idea, lousy cheap fittings

Purchased in May 2019 at Bunnings Warehouse for $79.00.

Pope hose failure

published

My 35m Permafit Gropro Storm hose from Pope (purchased at Bunnings) has deteriorated after 2yrs. There is a sticky residue all over the hose and it has burst a few times. Each time it burst it wasted water as the leak went undetected for a whole day. The sticky residue not only is hard to remove from your hands, it has damaged my timber floor boards. I have now returned my hose to Bunnings and i am awaiting their response on warranty.
Not impressed.

Great product!

I bought the Pope Brumby with brass fittings. Never leaked once and I water most days and never turn off the tap. Go for brass fittings and not the cheap plastic

Hose fittings

published

We have used your products forever, but not any more. Your hose fittings leak at the tap and even on low pressure the fitting connection to the hose lets go. We have replaced these many times, but what a waste of money!

Very poor quality for the price you pay for the product!

published

Given that the Pope website and packaging states that their products are of good quality is very misleading because here I have a Pope hose pipe which I have used moderately and taken good care of it when not in use to find that the fitting that connects the hose pipe to the tap has the thread worn out. Before that, the fitting used to leak and sometimes give in to the water pressure from the tap to burst out spraying water everywhere.

Why not make your connectors and fittings non rusting metal or copper? I wont be buying Pope again. I would rather go with a company that actually sells good quality products and delivers on its promise on their claims of providing a good quality product.

Garden hose not good due to curling and kinking

published

It was the most expensive 12 mm dia garden hose at Bunnings ($135 for 35m length) and had a kink resistance of 10. When the hose receives water pressure, it curls up and kinks like a dying tiger snake. When the water pressure is released, the hose uncurls. The hose is too soft and flexible, and is like a rubber band. It is no good as a garden hose as you are always fighting the curls and kinks. I have scrapped mine (bought Sep 2017).

Unreliable product

published

I bought one of these and within weeks, one of the hose attachments broke, and also the hose gun begun leaking. I had to replace the attachment, and the gun leak only got worse to the point of being unusable within a year or so. My sister has also bought a hose reel from Pope, which failed immediately after purchase. Not worth the money, seems a very high failure rate

Great Hose but cheap Fittings

published

Purchased 2 of the more expensive Pope Spectrum garden hoses with Crimped Fittings and 15 Year warranty but the fittings on one the hoses has fallen to bits ! It is used for Used for domestic purposes ! Have had to cut the end fitting off and replace with a screw on fitting which was the main reason for the addition expense in buying a quality hose. I cut the fitting off to complete the work I was doing but now Very disappointed that Bunnings have advised that the warranty does not cover the end fittings????
