Uses of Garden Hose Reel

Garden hose reel can be used to store garden hoses in private or commercial spaces. Garden hose is often used with pressure pump for cleaning outside areas like grime around the fences of a house. The pressure pump needs a water inlet and the garden hose serves as that water inlet. This makes it easier to use the pressure pumps even at distances from the faucet.

Here are some of the factors that need to be considered when buying hose reels:

  • Commercial or personal use: The first thing to consider is whether the hose reel is for commercial use or personal use. Both are categorized separately at a hardware store.
  • Size of the yard: Small yards would require a wall mounted hose reel as the space for storing a freestanding reel would be less.
  • Size of the garden hose: The size of the garden hose reel is chosen depending upon the length of the garden hose. Every reel has a different storage capacity. There is no point in a buying a smaller hose reel for a longer garden hose, it won't fit in.
  • Storage space: Wall mounted hose reels require very less storage space, freestanding hose reels on the other hand required more storage space.
