Saw some retractable hoses being sold in Parkson, 1Utama and being sold about RM120+. It is unique because it expands when water pushes through it (tap on) and shrinks when water drains out. Because it shrinks and is very light, it is very easy to store and carry the hose. The hose is also impossible to kink.

Reviews have been generally good. Some doubts whether it could last if left outdoors. The hose also cannot be patched, so we need to be careful not to puncture or damage it. Has anyone tried this hose?

my advice is DUN BUY ! My brother bought one thru Groupon - more or less same stuff as they always posted before discount is RM1xx after its like Rm3x or Rm60.

No even 1 time use, it exploded.

Note : My house water supply is not really that 'strong'....

Strongly suggest buy the reel...

As the saying goes, buy with 1 cent get 1 cent product...... smile_blackeye.gif

Well....I guess it's too good to be true. Pity though...very convenient if it really does work/last. If it was a little bit cheaper (like more than half of the price listed smile_clown.gif ), I'd most probably would give it a try myself.......

If I recall correctly, Ace having offer for this Karcher HR25 reel at <RM120. Downside is have to cut hose for tap connection and buy additional hose connectors, if you currently do not have.

Hi,
l also bought one on-line months back with blue colour. l forget the actual price ( around RM 70) . Let me tell you "IT IS HOPELESS", the out-flowing water is slightly stronger than usual passing urine and it does not extend to the expected length. l only used once and chucked it by the side. Perhaps the one sold in grand shopping complexes is better. Incidentally
l am considering to buy KARCHER from <lazada.com.my>
