New 30m and 40m Auto Reels make summer watering almost effortless

A long, hot summer can mean constant watering of hanging baskets, tubs, vegetable plots and borders. The twice daily ritual requires a lot of heavy carrying with a watering can and it can still be a messy job even with a garden hose if you have to keep untangling it.
But thanks to the latest must-have garden watering aid from Hozelock, it doesn’t need to be like that ever again. The remarkably easy to use wall-mounted Auto Reel not only delivers water easily without strenuous pulling or untangling but it also rewinds the hose automatically when you have finished.
Whether reviving planted containers on the patio or delivering water to the veg plot at the bottom of the garden, the new Auto Reel is so easy to use that a once arduous task becomes a pleasure. A hose which puts itself away could also be empowering for elderly or infirm gardeners who otherwise might struggle to water their plants throughout the summer.
Automatic rewind is a safety aid too since it lessens the temptation to leave the hose lying around on the ground after use where it can be a potential hazard.
Always available for easy watering without the hassle of untangling it first, the hose can be pulled out to any required length up to the full 30 or 40 metres. Stopping at any point automatically locks the hose feed mechanism so that the hose can be used freely without fear of it rewinding; and extending the hose further requires no more than a gentle pull to release the hose feed mechanism.
After use, a simple tug on the hose unlatches the drum and allows the Auto Reel’s powerful spring and patented automatic rewind system to take over, drawing the hose effortlessly back into its protective casing where Hozelock’s clever layering mechanism ensures that it is neatly coiled without any knots, kinks or tangles.
Patented braking technology keeps the rewind speed under control so that it never exceeds walking pace and a moulded ball stop on the end of the hose prevents it from retracting fully inside the casing.
The attractive, moulded casing is sleek yet sturdy. It sits on a 180-degree bracket which allows the whole reel to swing around automatically to face the user as the hose is fed out – and when not in use, to fold back discreetly against the wall.
In addition to the bracket and all necessary wall fixings, the new Auto Reel comes complete with a 2m feeder hose for connection to the tap, a variable spray hose nozzle, water-wise Waterstop connector, hose connector, 3/4in and 1/2in tap connectors and a two-year warranty (Hozelock’s test units are still working perfectly after the equivalent of 11 years of twice daily use).
For multi-tasking, there is a wide range of optional Hozelock irrigation and cleaning attachments including long-reach watering lances, spray guns, sprinklers and pressure washers.
Dubbed the world’s easiest-to-use hose reel on its launch a decade ago, the original, award-winning* 20 metre Auto Reel and the existing 10 metre Auto Reel bring the benefits of Hozelock’s auto-rewind technology to smaller gardens. All four Auto Reels come in green casings with matching grey side discs.
Priced at £49, £79, £99 and £129 (including VAT) respectively, the 10m, 20m, 30m and 40m Auto Reels cater for most gardeners’ needs. They are available from all good DIY stores, garden centres and online retailers (check www.hozelock.us/store-locator.html for nearest stockists).
