Don't Buy It Until We Try It: The Pocket Hose

Posted: Updated:

 For most of us, springtime means pulling out the garden hose to water flowers and plants. But when you reach for your gardening hose,  it gets pretty tangled up. There may be an easier way. It's called the Pocket Hose and it promises to be the hose that grows. But, will it really make life in the yard easier?

 Ashley Berry works at a greenhouse, and when it comes time to water the rows and rows of fresh flowers and plants, it can be a big wet mess.

 "We go all the way down the aisle and then all over both sides of each bench and we'll come back down the other way. It's very frustrating when you get lots of kinks and you're at one end of the greenhouse and you have to get your kind and come back and start over, " says Berry.

 And she isn't alone. Viewers have the same problem at home. After getting lots of requests for pocket hose, it was finally time to try it out.

 So, we disconnected the current hose and attached it to the water spigot. After that, all you have to do is turn it on and let it expand.

 "It just filled up really fast because it is all compact. Once it fills up it, it's going to expand really fast," Berry explains.

 And, it's ready to use within seconds. But, as she begins to hose down the flowers, she notices there isn't quite as much pressure as before.

 "I don't think as much water could go through at one time, so pressure is probably going to be lower. It's quite a bit more flimsy."

 Once everything was watered, we turn off the pocket hose and disconnected it. Within seconds the water drains and the Pocket Hose is pack to its original size.

 Overall, the Pocket Hose gets a thumbs up from our tester.
