Item Specifics

The Treeco Garden Hose Kit expands to 50 feet.  This hose is smaller than traditional hoses but has expanding abilities up to 50 ft, which means it's portable and easier to store and shrinks for your hook or reel (included).  Two multipurpose nozzles and a shut off valve are also included.  This means that you can cover your garden and home with the spray gun for higher water pressure to make washing cars, garage and watering plants easy.  An easy storage and reel is also included.  The Treeco Garden Hose was made to be durable and strong with 3 layers of latex.  This hose is also stretchable.  It comes with a 12 month risk free warranty.  This hose is designed to be leak proof but if you experience any issues with it, Treeco will replace it at no cost.  

Great for Light Duties

The Treeco Garden Hose is not made for heavy duty work nor use.  It gives you the convenience of having a hose around for light work, without it taking up too much space.  A customer commented this about this product, "I like these types of hoses.  I don't need a hose often and also not a long one.  My patio/plant area is small, so having this unit doesn't take up much space but gives me a hose when I need it.  I have owned these types of hoses over the years and have always liked them.  I suppose they wouldn't be good for heavy work or large properties, but for places like mine, they are great."

Comes with 2 Nozzles

Customers liked that this hose came with not one but two nozzles.  "The two nozzles that come with it are also high quality and extremely useful," commented on of several that left positive feedback about the nozzles.

Leakage

Unfortunately this hose does leak according to customers.  While many reported no leakage, at least half of the comments left about leakage were that it does in fact leak.  I'll give you both ends of the spectrum.  Here is one of many comments that said it does not leak: "Works perfectly, no leaking, no more lugging buckets of water to my plants or dragging the heavy garden hose."  And then here is one of many comments that stated it does leak, " I have owned this for a few months, barely used it and yet it leaks from the main connector as the cheap plastic connector has already broken down."  As a side note, this customer also added that the company contacted him and offered him a full refund.  He added, "I appreciated that and that is good that they stood by their product."

Lightweight & Nice for Seniors

Anyone including but not limited to Seniors who may have a hard time carrying around a heavy hose may want to check out the Treeco Garden Hose.  Weighing in at only 2.8 pounds, it lightens the hose load for anyone not wanting to drag around nor carry too much hose weight.  One Senior testified to the advantage of a lightweight hose when she said, "I was skeptical at first, but once I got the hose and tried them out, I loved them.  I am 78 yrs old and could not handle the hose that I had because of the heaviness.  Now I have a water hose I can use easily and put away each time after use."

Treeco Garden Hose Kit Conclusion

The Treeco Garden Hose Kit is a handy lightweight retractable hose.  It is compact and will take up minimal space in storage.  However, this is not a heavy duty hose, so care should be taken to not treat it as such.  A main selling point is that it is lightweight.  Seniors and people who can not or do not want to lift a lot may benefit from this hose.  It comes with 2 nozzles, that most of the customers commented were quality nozzles.  Unfortunately, this hose did receive reports about it leaking.  Approximately half of the comments on leakage were positive with people saying it didn't leak, but approximately the other half reported that it did leak.  If you are wanting a lightweight hose for light work, you may be interested in checking out the Treeco Garden Hose Kit.  If you take it for what it is, and that is a lightweight hose for lightwork, you may be very satisfied with it. The majority of customers commented favorably about this hose.

Common Questions

Here are some top questions that I found for people considering buying a Treeco Garden Hose Kit.

  • chevron-circle-right
    Does the reel need to be mounted on the side of the house, or can it be free standing?  The reel and hose are very light.  It has a handle which can either be hung on the faucet or free standing.
  • chevron-circle-right
    I see many reviews pointing to leakage issues - is the product tube made from Triple Latex material?  Yes, it is made from triple latex technology, it is however needed to take better care than traditional hoses which means retracting the water after each use and storing safely.
  • chevron-circle-right
    Does the hose need to be completely off the holder before it will expand or can it be left partially reeled?  The hose will expand with the pressure of the water and will do whatever watering is necessary, without being completely unreeled.  But it is not difficult to rewind it when the watering is done.
