Hose Reels, Retractable – FAQs

Are retractable hoses worth it?

A garden hose is a common piece of equipment that can be found in a backyard. Normally, its design is bulky, challenging to store, and difficult to wrangle – which is exactly why you should invest in a garden hose that's retractable.

With a Green Fingers retractable garden hose reel, you have a hose with hassle-free unwind and rewind, durability, and convenience.

The Green Fingers retractable hose reel is designed to be wall-mounted, so it seamlessly fades into the background when you don't need it. The Australian climate can be harsh, especially during summer, so the polypropylene housing and PVC hose are UV-resistant as an additional benefit.

The included spray gun has seven adjustable nozzle actions, ranging from fine mist to a full-on jet blast. The adjustable water pressure can be used for watering the garden, showering the pets, washing the cars, and much more.

How long should a hose reel be?

When choosing the length of your garden hose, you should consider measuring the size of your garden and envision how far you would be unwinding the hose to water the area.

To determine the desired length, you should measure the size of your garden or the place where you wish to install a retractable hose reel. This is important, because tugging on the hose may create snags and damage it over time.

The Green Fingers retractable hose reel is offered at lengths of 10, 20 and 30 metres to fit your needs.

What size is a standard garden hose end?

Taps and fittings come in different sizes. The standard garden hose end ranges from 3/8” to 3/4". Some of the most popular sizes include 3/8”, 3/4", 1/2", and 5/8”.

The 20-metre retractable hose reel from Green Fingers has an end that is 3/4” in size, which is suitable for most standardised household taps in Australia.

Having a garden hose end of the correct size is important because it ensures proper water flow from your tap, without any leakage and maintains a constant water pressure.

How do I know what size hose I need?

Garden hoses come in many different lengths to suit your needs, ranging from 3 to 30 metres in length.

If you simply need to water flowers or grass in a small lot, a garden hose of 10 m would be sufficient. But, if you need to water a larger area, then getting a 20 m retractable garden hose reel would be ideal for you.

At Takealot, we have retractable garden hose reels from Green Fingers that come in 10, 20 and 30 m in length. Browse the different choices to find the one that best suits your needs.
