I have had the same hose for over 3 years. I have never had a problem with the hose leaking. I leave it in the RV outside storage over the winter. Again, I use it for filling the RV with water, I do not have constant pressure on it by leaving the water on as a constant source of water to the RV. My only complaint is it is sometimes hard to roll up, I find it is better to walk along the hose while rolling it up instead of standing in one place and having the hose drag on the ground to roll up. Keeps the hose much cleaner too!

      Comments about American Specialty® Handi-Hose & Reel (RT-50):

      I bought a 25' and a 50' back in 2001. The 25' hose is still good put the 50' has been run over by numerous cars and trucks since 2011 and has developed two pin hole leaks. This is why I am looking to buy a new 50' hose. These have been very good hoses for the last 11 years. 75' of this kind of hose only takes up as much space as 25' of regular type hose in my camper. I would highly recommend this hose.

        Comments about American Specialty® Handi-Hose & Reel (RT-50):

        This hose is light and easy to use. If you get a kink, you just toss it in the air and the kink falls out. I had my last one for a long time, may 6 to 8 years and never had any trouble with it. It finally sprang a leak. I had trouble finding a replacement and went through 4 or 5 other hoses before I was able to locate this hose again. It's a little pricey, but worth every penny. I'm purchasing this hose for my cousin's birthday present because she always complains about how heavy her hose is. By the way, I take the hose off of the reel and use it.

          We use this rose&reel product for our RV. It comes in handy when the water supply is not as close or convenient as possible. It does not take much space so goes in a carrier when done using!

          I've owned this for about 6 years now and have had no problems. A different brand I previously purchased developed leaks after a few months use.I store it in my garage after use and never leave it outside. I wish more lengths were available. 50 ft is too long and 25 ft is too short. plus, this is made in USA.

                Pretty much I have used the three hoses since 2003, with out any issues filling stock tanks in the winter 150 ft from the water faucet. Never a issue, use 3 times a week all winter long, in summer they get put away until the pipes freeze to the stock tanks.
                Product is occasional use only and do not let sit with pressure, was not made for it.

                                    I bought this last year to replace a different brand of the same type.
                                    It worked very well. Just be careful to keep the water pressure on while not in use. While I was washing the car, I left the water on, but had a spray nozzle at the end, which was off. After a few minutes, it sprung a leak. I guess the pressure built up inside while not in use found a weak spot and burst through.
                                    Trying to see if I can return it.

                                    I will not be buying another product like this.

                                        My hose has worked very well for 5+ years. No leaks. I'm buying a second one so I'll have a 100 ft span to fill my motor home tank in remote campgrounds. This hose was never designed to be left under pressure and doing so will result in leaks or blow outs.

                                          The second time (33 days after)it has 1-3 leaks on every liner fit evently. So I just dispose it with other plastc trash for proper recycling.

                                              this is a great product for home. I wish there's a product like this longer than 50 feet.

                                                  After six weeks of use with my RV, the hose became a springer hose with pin hole leaks. The company does not put there phone number on the packing, now I know why....

                                                    I loved the fact that the hose rolled up neatly and took very little space on my boat. However, after using the hose 4 times, it burst and therefore became completely unusable. [...]

                                                    The first time I used this hose, it burst after about 45 minutes. The cotton / nylon shell appears to be too soft to survive normal use.
