About Pocket Hose

You understand the importance of keeping your outdoor spaces looking beautiful because they add value to your homes. However looking after your garden is easier said than done and it’s especially true when it comes to watering the plants with the help of regular hoses. They are quite heavy and awkward to carry around, which is why you tend to keep putting off these garden chores at the cost of neglecting your gardens altogether. But now you have Pocket Hose, which is lightweight and easy to use for all the watering needs in your outdoor spaces.


Pocket Hose CLAIMS

You can use the Pocket Hose is your gardens to water the plants or on your terraces, patios and porches for that matter.

You can easily slip it into the palm of your hands or in your pocket and use it conveniently in your outdoor spaces. And when you are done using it, the hose will shrink back to its normal size so that it can be easily stored away.

You can put away the hose in drawers or hang it wherever you want to. The expandable accordion design is the reason why this hose works perfectly for you and just according to your needs.

Available in different sizes from 25 feet to 100 feet, you can buy this hose according to your requirements and look after your garden spaces just the way they should be.

Pocket Hose Reviews

The concept is good but the casing is not strong enough, it is observed in the reviews written many buyers mentioned about the hose been splitting or bursting which can not be repaired. There are complaints about the leakages just after few uses, they are light weight and easy to use but if a hose can’t hold water it is useless.

Also while using you need to make sure the hose fills up pressure before rolling it out, if it is not under pressure it will tangle and knot. It does not untangle itself like advertised. The hose is supposed to be a 3/4 inch hose but there only 1/4 holes in the brass fittings at each end that restrict the flow of water, and hence a user of this product would not recommend for a job where high volume of water is needed.

Keeping in mind the use of convenience for the customers a shutoff valve would be preferable rather than the hooky nozzle.

You can buy the 25 foot Pocket Hose for $12.99 plus shipping and handling charge of $7.99 at www.pockethose.com. By paying additional shipping and handling charge of $9.99 you can get another Pocket Hose with your offer.

  1. After the first one sprang a leak, I tried a second. Now we had purchased three… I’m so disgusted with myself… The third Pocket Hose … boy, am I a fool. I should have read these other experiences!

    • Thanks for posting this. I was just trying to decide whether or not to get a third one. Your comment saved me the trouble. This hose is worthless!!! It can’t handle any water pressure is what I think. They all leak!

  2. Do not get these hoses any near Gasoline. It immediately melts the inside hose.
    I replaced 3 of them before discovering the defect. It was connected to a pressure washer, I dripped a little gas on the hose. Within 30 seconds it began to leak furiously. The gas was my fault, however the inner hose should be made of something less impervious to petroleum products

  3. I have 3 hoses 2 25 footers and 1 100 footer. I have had them for about 8-9 months and can,t return them. I would love to known if you have type of repair kits
    Thank you

  4. JUNK! Mine blew up while I was away. Came home to a flooded backyard. Going back to the old school hose. Waste of money and no refunds.

  5. 2nd one leaks at connector same as first. It’s going back to get refund. I spent 30 years fixing things. I’m not buying new to have to repair it out of the box.

  6. Went through several of these years ago but got fooled by the latest incarnation of this item. After only a month it blew yesterday. New and improved? Baloney! Nice idea but it’s junk and I’m out $40 now. Regular hoses are a pain but they last for decades. Don’t buy this!

  7. I bought the Perfect Hose Deluxe (50 fee, 2 hoses) at Ocean State Job Lot for $20. Deal, right? Wrong. Within three weeks the first hose blew out, followed by the second a week later. Be afraid!

  8. We purchased 100 ft. black Pocket Hose from Wal Mart 2 weeks ago. It was a closeout and last one they had. Being only $29 it seemed like a good deal . However, only 2 weeks later it blew apart at the brass end and now is useless. We have had several other of the hoses and they do not hold up well at all. So now we are going back to our trusty, but much heavier traditional hose.

  9. We bought a pocket hose,top brass 2. we have repaired it times in two months. they tell me the only way I can get a replacement is to sent it back to them, with me paying the postage. I have offered to sent them a picture. not good enough.

  10. I purchased the black pocket hose about a month ago (8/17), at a CVS pharmacy, as seen on TV sales rack. As I was moving into anew home I needed a new hose. Used it a couple of times to spray off the driveway, and was using it to clean off my deck and I noticed a bulge near the connection to the nozzle. Until I got to the shut of valve the bulge ripped and the plastic hose exploded. I contacted cvs, they said contact “pocket hose” has lifetime warranty. Contacted pocket hose all I have to do if search my credit statements for proof of purchase… I understand, but am very disappointed, and strongly advise you invest in a better hose

  11. Piece of garbage! Used three times. First two to spray far reaching areas, and I like it for that. Didn’t kink, didn’t leak, and was light although similar to a regular hose when full of water. The third usage was to spray out my air conditioning fins, then this happened. I had to shut the water flow off for a couple of minutes to brush some debris away that I had washed off. Suddenly the hose BURST! I mean POW and water sprayed everywhere.
    Do not waste you money on this for the warranty is not honored even IF you can get in contact with anyone to speak with. Dishonorable at best, and fraudulently criminal quite possibly. Get rid of this piece of garbage anyone that seels it, it for isn’t worth your risk and reputation with customers.

  12. I bought the 50′ Pocket Hose for $20 at Home Depot around this this time last year. It WAS quite handy for my wife to use and move around, but it recently developed a small leak and then it bust open with a loud pop. This was not from abuse, we’ve been fanatical about removing from the faucet, coiling it up after it shrinks, and placing it on a chair to keep it out of harms way. So $20 for one year.

    • Piece of CRAP?? My crap is stronger than this phony advertised Pock Hose 50′. Even the nossle is crap, only a ‘spray’ not good for garden work. Mine does not curl up but full of kinks & 2 leeks. They refused my emails three times for my full refund. Now their email is out, non deliverable. I have filed with the WA consumers protection agency & WA AG offices last week. I WANT MY $29.99 +s&h fee. Kroger’s & Walgreen’s have told me nothing but complaints from customers.

  13. My pocket hose got a small leak early on but I continued to use it. Today I turned on the hose to water my garden and the water gushed from a large hole and upon inspection I found a long 2 or 3 feet of the hose (on one side) was black and melted as though it was burned by fire! The hose worked fine just the evening before! I am mystified as to what could ‘melt’ a large hole, both through the outer lining and the inner tubing so as to leave it hard and brittle! Anyone have an answer, please? Thanks.

  14. I gave this product enough chances (5 new hoses from different brands) and I’m done. I just like it because of its light weigh and easy to store. However, either they leaked water at the connector or the hose just simply busted after few weeks of usage. Do not wasted your time and money on this flex hose, pocket hose or any similar concept.

  15. Have own three of these. They are junk. All of them failed after little use. Have always handled them with care. Always brought inside immedately after each use. each of my purchase were for the new and improved model ..yeah right. Three strikes your out. Never again. Keep your junk

  16. Pure crap, but my wife keeps buying because they are so easy to handle.
    Richard Karn is a snake oil salesman. How can a person tell us how strong they are. Showing them hooked up to two trucks and tugging away.

    Some lawyer should being a class action suit. Of course the lawyer would get all the money, but at least pocket hose would have quit making false claims.

  17. Possibly the WORST expandable hose ever! Have gone through at least 4 or 5 of another brand over the past few years. Dragging does wear them out but, at least we would get a full summer season out of them. Decided to try pocket hose. Bought in May of this year. probably actually used it no more than 20 times. It is not quite 2 months old. Today it started leaking, and not the usual hole in one spot. The WHOLE HOSE sprung leaks. It is now trash as there is NO WARRANTY!

  18. I have purchased 2 pocket hoses in the past 1 1/2 years, the first one after having it for less than a year split down the middle, the other one split near the water connection as I was watering last night. The hose is kept in the pocket hose bucket so it is not in the elements of the weather. These hoses are not cheap and now I have to yet again buy another one.

  19. I have purchased 2 of these in the last six months and both have exploded. These hoses knot, kink and then explode. I would not waste your money and the company ought to be ashamed of themselves for basically taking peoples money. They need to rethink this hose and take it off the market. Piece of junk!

  20. Save your sales slip. I purchased a pocket hose at Walmart. Used it a couple times and then one morning I was going to wash the car in the drive turned the faucet on and watched the hose expand and unfold and all of a sudden a balloon like budge formed in the hose and when it popped sounded like a rifle shot, I got freightened it was a very loud crack sound people came out of their houses thinking it was a gun shot..very embarrassing save your money…JUNK..

  21. Pocket hosed! What a piece of crap. I bought one of the pocket hoses and after a few months the hose started spraying from a little pin hole. I thought it was suppose to be bullet proof. Or so they said. Don’t buy one not unless you don’t have any other thing to spend your money on.

  22. I purchased one @ the end of the season last year & hooked it up about 5 days ago. It was easy to use, light & obviously flexible…great!
    Looking out on my deck this morning, there was a large wet spot under the hose & a fine mist, I thought it was beginning to rain (as it’s overcast), but it’s the freaking HOSE!
    It’s literally leaking everywhere!

  23. Bought this 75ft Pocket Hose less than a year ago and used it maybe 10 times. Today it blew apart about 3 ft down from nozzle. This is the 2nd Pocket Hose that has ruptured. I bought this second one only because the packaging stated it was improved. Wrong!! This is the last purchase

  24. I just had the hose “blow-up”! The plastic tube split in half. It is a great idea. I am disabled & a regular hose is too heavy for me to use. I wish it would have lasted longer.

  25. What a piece of junk. I had two 50′ hoses burst the same day. The product should be taken off of the market.

  26. this hose is junk and not worth buying because they don’t hold up and the company give you all kind excuse why they want replace it I have bought two fifty foot hose in less than a year and both split want be buying a pocket hose anymore .done

  27. My wife bought two 50 foot pocket hoses for $20 each at Lowe’s. After 15 or so uses one ruptured after accidently stepping on it. The second ruptured from normal use.

  28. I’ll tell you what I’ll make one and make millions because it won’t break like their styles in a month so park on house here I come it’ll be called the better pocket hose. Great idea but absolute crap material on the inside. You pave the way for me to just make a better material house.

  29. I have purchased 4 of these” what evers”. This is a big rip off. I can’t understand how a product of this POOR quality can stay on the market. However I do understand with the great population of this world it will be sometime before this company runs out of customers. Its a great hose and is light weight, easy tp handle, just don’t run water through it with any type of control valve on the end.
    It is hard to fine words to express my feeling for this product. I’m 83 years old and have used many products that did not come up to all that it was advertised to be. This product tops them all

    • I agree 100% with you this pocket hoses a real piece and a rip off. I bought the first one from Home Depot and it lasted a little while and then I thought it burst just cause it was out in the sun so I thought I’d give a second want to try and it burst a month after I bought it and it wasn’t even in the sun it was in the winter. Upset that this product could even be out there then it fails in less than a year

  30. Don’t waste your money on the pocket hose. I purchased this product thru Publishers Clearing House and only used it twice before the material ripped and sprung leaks all over the hose. This product also did not recoil as shown on television.

  31. This is my 5th hose. I finally upgraded to the black hose. Still explodes and leaks like Niagara Falls. Do Not Buy.
    Waste of Money

  32. I recently purchased 2 Pocket Hoses to connect to the one I already have. I needed a long hose that would reach from my well pump all of the way to my barn. I thoght the Pocket Hose was great because it is so lightweight. It would be so much easier to pull 175 feet of lightweight Pocket Hose than to drag an ordinary hose that far. In an attempt to improve the POCKET HOSE, the company has made the PRODUCT UNUSABLE!!! They did away with the plastic connectors & added BRASS connectors & nozzle that CONTAIN LEAD !!! There is a WARNING on the package that I did not notice until after I’d opened it. It states that you must WASH YOUR HANDS after handling & DO NOT CONSUME WATER that comes from the hose!!! I wanted to use this incredibly lightweight hose to water my animals as well as my garden. I am EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED !!!

  33. Bought 6 over the past 3 years. The first two burst! Thought we did something wrong. The other four leaked really bad, thought there was something wrong with the washers, no problem there. We are down to two(trashed the other two) and they still leak. Wrapping a towel around the connection helps a little. My days are over with this light weight hose. I will not be buying another one. The good thing about this hose was the weight and how easy it was to store in a small bucket. In the beginning I had recommended the product because of the light weight. I do not recommend the product anymore due to the lack of durability and the safety (bursting apart). It should be taken off the market just for safety reasons alone.

  34. I was washing my dog and when I paused the water flow on my pocket hose, it blew up. The hose itself blew out into 2 pieces. I always swore by this product, now I want to know how to recoup my money.

  35. I bought 4 of these hoses. They don’t last three months. I want to know where do I get my money back. Each one cost $29.99. I am going to write to bbb about this issue.

  36. I bought two 50′ fantastic. To keep them from bursting do not leave hose on with nozzle closed.

    Mine last 2 1/2 years, but i never closed nozzle. Its a great hose.


  38. these hoses are a total waste of money. They don’t last very long at all before they either leak or completely burst. And as far as this company, they are no better than their product. They just want to sell as many of them as they can and collect their money but as far as the product being worth it, ABSOLUTELY NOT. PIECE OF JUNK that ends up in the trash

  39. pocket hoses stink. I have purchased 3 over the last 4 years and they all either blew the nozzle off or the hose blew a hole in it. the latest was the 75 ft I purchased the summer of 2015 .this one blew a hole last week. the warranty is useless, cant get anyone at the distributing house. enough is enough

    • I can beat that I have purchased 3 this summer alone. They CAN NOT be drug across concrete as they advertise because this will damage the outer hose and then the hose inside breaks out and bursts. I will NEVER BUY ANOTHER it’s such a waste of money. Too bad the design is flawed because I like that it collapses. Never again

  40. I am once again very disappointed in this product. I went through 4 of them in the past and they all burst.

    When I read the had a new and improved version I bought another and after a week of use it burst.

    I will not fall for this again.

  41. Bought the green one several years ago. It sprang a leak at the end. Bought another one at Sam’s, was a bargain with 2 in the box. One sprang a leak within 3 months, so I used the other one. I learned not to open the faucet too far. It lasted about 3 months but the leak was just a trickle. Was able to used it the summer again. But I was away and my husband watered the plants for me. He must have turned the water on full bast. I came back to a hose that leaks so back water does not even make ti to the nozzle. So glad I found these reviews. I thought the brass fitting hose was going to be the big fix. Apparently not so.

  42. Purchased the pocket top brass 50 ft hose for$29.99 at Home Depot with a birthday gift card. Loved the hose .it was so light and easy to move around my garden. Hose burst within 2 months. Pure waste of money!!! From reading all the reviews; I cannot believe this product is still on the market.

    • Had the exact same issue. Loved the hose and it lasted about two months. Also, I did not store it in the sun….just as a precaution; however, that obviously did not work either. Unfortunately, the product worked so well that I ended up tossing my receipt and the container. Bad move on my part!

    • that is exactly my experiences with every one I have purchased. I bought the brass end hoses until this very last one and bought the plastic one. They are crap.

  43. Not worth a damn! Bought 3 this summer to connect together for watering flowers and they leak within the hose! I didn’t buy soaker hoses, but that’s what happens, I get more water on myself and places in the yard than I do on targeted flowers!

  44. JUNK, JUNK, JUNK. I bought 3 of these hoses and got hosed myself, all three leaked within a month or so of using them.

    I’ve written to the company and they don’t respond.

  45. who do i contact about your not so great product ,, We bought the perfect hose deluxe no matter how you hook up the nozzle to it you get a shower ,, we even replaced the washer nothing helps,,, my other one has a split from day one in that hose ,, thought they would be convenient to use ,, NEVER AGAIN < WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY

  46. I purchased three pocket hoses, two 25′ with plastic ends and then the black 25′ with brass ends. I stored them properly according to the instructions. This year all three hoses ruptured and broke. I did not know if there was a warranty on them. I would never recommend them to anyone after they all burst. The black and brass was less than a year old and the other two were on their second season. Do you intend to improve the hose so it will not burst? Thank you!

    • I purchased the 100′ pocket hose with brass ends about 9 mo. ago. First of all it never did retract as advertised, but that was no biggie. However, yesterday, the hose blew. Is there any warranty on it? I purchased it at Ace Hardware in San Diego.

      • I purchased 25 ft hose 2 years ago never used.got out this year 2018 to use.used 5 times spring a leak not happy

  47. I had purchased the 50 ft and the 75 ft pocket hose and they have both ruptured and are useless. I loved the hose and recommended it to family and friends. Sorry I did that now. I won’t be recommending it any longer and will stop whoever I can from making that purchase.

  48. have 2 hoses both gone bad call company had my name on file tell me take pictures of hose need to email them to them need disdal camera don,t have so they cover them love the hoses but warranty sucks

  49. bought a 75 foot hose lasted 2 weeks and burst…was not left in the sun and was always drained of the water and hung up on a hose reel….cant get customer service to answer my emails…..wont buy another one

  50. I like the idea but it leaked everywhere at the nozzle after a few times using it. Customer service was worse to try and replace the life time guaranteed hose. They kept (8 emails and phone calls) giving me an email that kept kicking back. NO such valid email. It was bad enough the hose leaked but FALSE advertisement of the guarantee was worse

  51. I purchased a pocket hose two years ago which sprung a leak within one day. Returned it to K-Mart where I bought the hose and received a replacement which within days sprung two leaks and eventually exploded. My wife went to K-Mart two weeks ago to buy a replacement (how stupid are we) and was told by the salesperson to use the hose right after the water has been turned on as the water pressure can cause the hose to leak (can you believe that). I sent an email to Pocket Hose about two weeks ago to complain about the leakage problem and never even received the courtesy of a reply. How does the FTC allow this junk to be sold and/or advertised? And, how does Richard Karn in good conscience continue as a spokesman for Pocket Hose.

  52. I bought pocket hose for $29.99 hooked it up 2 days later sprung leak.
    Bought another pocket hose. Figured it was just me. Wife used it for about three days and it broke.
    Giving the benefit of the doubt, bought another one. I am now down $90.00, and you guessed it that one broke. Never again will I buy a pocket hose they suck.

  53. got one of the green hoses. Used it several times then a leak started at the inlet end ..then there I took it apart and fixed it . used it several times and then it broke three feet from the same end. so I figured the best thing now was to take it completely apart. pulled the rubber part out and cut off the ends. Now I use the rubber part for soft tie downs in my truck and the outer hose for tight tie downs .I used to drive a flat bed truck and it works very good for long tie downs…

  54. Pocket Hose is the biggest piece of s*#t I have ever bought. I didn’t have the hose 3months before it sprung a leak so I contacted customer service since it is “satisfaction guaranteed”. Well all they wanted to do was back peddle. They finally agreed to send me a replacement but the hose they sent was not what I ordered and it too sprung a leak within a month. Needless to say I was not pleased.

  55. Worked great for about two weeks. Pulled only across grass and the sheathing split while using and ended up with a really big water balloon. Looks good on paper, but leaves a lot to be desired.

  56. I bought a 75′ pocket hose and returned it 4 times because there’s a hole in each of them. Coincidence? I doubt it. It’s only advantage is it doesn’t have to be rolled and save space.

  57. Used the Pocket hose Ultra this weekend to clean patio. It worked fine. Day 2 out of the container. It’s easy to connect and move then the standard heavy hose I was using before.

    • well you can bet it will rupture as all the others that have been purchased have done. This product and it’s company are crap. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT

  58. Don’t bother purchasing, Hose will disappoint you. It’s only value when it breaks is the brass ends for scrap. Total junk. I hope fire hoses are not manufactured in this manner as they advertised.

  59. I’ve Ben shafted three times with this hose – I so wanted it to work with our gardening but I’ve had 2blowouts with this hose and the store replaced them but I just opened my new replacement this spring and another blowout on the second day of usage! I’ve loved the thought of such lightweight hose but will not purchase this item again ! 3strikes and I’m out!

  60. Trash, trash 75 ft. with brass H.D. end. The most expensive hose that I own. First started looking like a soak-er hose, and then within 2 months of purchase it busted. Absolute garbage.

  61. Worthless. We had 2. Both split. The replacements split. The company will no longer replace. Shame on Richard karn putting 100% guarantee on such a terrible product.

  62. This is without a dough the the worst hose I have ever purchased!! I purchased 4- 2 50 ft & 2 25ft, as soon as they were hooked up to water they leaked horribly, Wal Mart would not take them back so guess i’m just out about $100.00

  63. Today I open my 3X stronger ultra 75ft Pocket Hose, cut the water on the outer liner come apart at cut off & on valve exposed about 3ft of the inner liner, it expanded to the size of a 16 oz bottle then with sound of a fire cracker I got wet. This is my second Pocket Hose, I’ll not buy another!

  64. I purchased a pocket hose in 2014. I’ve been very careful with it. Did not store in sun and only watered some plants on my lanai. I liked it so much, I purchased a second. This morning while watering I noticed a bubble growing on the hose. I dropped the hose and ran. Looked like something out of a sci-fi movie and then it exploded. After reading what’s going on with these hoses, I am surprised some government agency has not stopped the sale of these things. In addition Consumer Reports should warn people. What would happen if my face was near the explosion…or a child was close. Finally, shame on the Home Improvement actor selling this product on those infomercials.

  65. Bought the 50ft pocket hose about 2 years ago, never open it till today, 4/30/16.Out of package, I hook it up and turn on the water it started to grow then it sprung a leak. Not happy with your product at all.

  66. Hose isn’t bad but not that great. Hose Caddy said it would fit up to 100ft. hose but needs to be about 4-5 inches deeper to get all the hose in without a hassle.

  67. Do NOT buy this hose. It seems like a great idea, however the hose leaks, and when/if the green outer covering comes off…the hose blows up like a long water balloon. TeleBrands, which markets this “made in China” product recently settled a class action suit involving hoses purchased at Home Depot. DO NOT PURCHASE THE POCKET HOSE!!

  68. I tried pocket hose since it appeared to be a good idea. The first one I bought sprung a leak within the first three months. I thought that was a quirk so I returned it and bought the best model available at the time. Within six months a bubble formed in the hose which promptly exploded. Don’t waste your money on a product that won’t last.

  69. This is a disturbing product. Read the warning label. Plus, they say you should wash your hands after you are finished. High lead levels. I used it in my fish pond, herb and veggie garden. Never again.

  70. Purchased 2 original ones 4 years ago. Had to have them replaced twice, as cover split and burst on two of them, and the hose at the hose-bib connector separated.

    Love the idea and ease of the hose, but not its problems.

    Will try and get the last two replaced again.

  71. I went through two of these hoses in less then a month.
    They will spring a leak a burst after a few uses.
    This product is not ready for market.. Not worth
    the money. I don’t know how this product made it to
    the market.

  72. Bought two with gold ends….used them twice. One developed a severe anuerism and died on duty.

    These hoses are garbage….and that’s now where mine are.

  73. Poor product. received one as a gift for Christmas. Did not use it until this week. Hose burst. Now trying to find out if it can be returned.

  74. Like so MANY OTHER COMPLAINTS…, this hose is a joke and complete waste of money!!! I can not say anything that hasn’t already been said. It’s made with the cheapest plastic possible for the fittings, ruptures, DEFINITELY doesn’t stretch up to 50 feet! It would be great if a class action suit was started!

  75. I’ve purchased several pocket hoses since they first came on the market. Without exception, they have all failed under water pressure. You connect to a faucet, attach a nozzle, turn on the water, and before you know it, the hose has burst.
    These pocket hoses are garbage.

  76. I work at an Ace Hardware and NEVER recommend your product to customers. We get 4/5 back for defective because it sprung a leak or completely busted open. I don’t know how y’all are still in business, people must be pretty dumb to continue to buy these.

      • …either that or a TOTAL #@% IDIOT!!!
        can’t believe i didn’t do the research on this criminal product before buying… Makes one want to go to the producing company and literally slap someone down… because judging by the class action suits and endless complaints, nothing seems to be putting a stop to this extreme abuse of the buying consumer…

  77. Paid $40.00 for second pocket hose two months ago,
    50 ft long. The inner plastic hose now has developed
    a 1 inch split and is now useless.

    First Pocket hose broke at the connection to faucet after
    about 4 months of use so they sent me a new one. Had the
    new one bout 4 months and that split at the connection
    so after $$$$$$$$ spent buying these pieces of crap

    i have decided to never invest in a pocket hose again
    i consider my really dumb in purchasing a second
    pocket hose….So everyone out there considering buying
    a pocket hose. Please DO NOT you will be wasting you
    money BIG TIME.

  78. My daughter gave me a blue one in May 2014. It lasted until June 2015 and it blew a hole near the feed end. Not known to me, I didn’t keep it out of the sun/UV rays. Gee, can’t keep a garden hose in the sun. I replaced it with a black one in July of 2015. I kept it out of the sun, never pressurized except when in use. It blew a hole in the middle of it in Oct 2015. Never dragged around anything sharp, kinked or abused. Worthless overpriced junk. Save you money.

  79. I have purchased a total of 4, I only use them in the winter to water my horses,because regular hoses freeze they only last one season I need 2 to reach….by the end of the season they rubber inside either pulls away from the end or it split in the middle. You also have to have a weight on the end to keep it from flipping around….I like the idea of it for the purpose I use it for in my winter watering but it needs to be more durable and weighted at the end….It does get a little expensive replacing them but then again easier than carrying buckets….

  80. The Pocket Hose design is wonderful, but the hose is not worth the money. I have had 4 of these hoses to split/pop during this summer. After each use I put hoses away as not to be exposed to the elements. It’s so easy to use, a breeze to put away after using, but I have spent $80+ for these hoses this summer.

    After losing 4 hoses, I purchased a Melnor coil hose from Home Depot for $20. It expands/retracks easily and the hanging rack can be easily mounted for convenient storage. Extends to 50 ft., includes storage rack, compact design.

    I’ll not waste any additional money for the Pocket Hose.

  81. I have purchased 5 of these hoses (not sure why), 3 of them sprung pin hole leaks and the 4th burst wide open. I am waiting for the last one to leak in some way. Will never buy another one. Enough said.

  82. Brought several of your so-called hoses.each one lasted just a few uses.couldn’t return because of no receipts. Piece of garbage! will not buy again and wil not recommend to anyone unless a lot of lmprovement to the inner tube that keeps on bursting.

  83. I love the pocket hose because of how light it is as I am senior citizen and always stumbling over those heavy rubber hoses. I have one in the front and one in the back. However, they only last one season and they blow out close to where they connect. I cannot afford to buy a new one every year. I have replaced 3 so far since they came out. I have one left now that I bought this year. I hope I can get more than one summer out of this one. They are the greatest invention but not if you have to buy a new one every year.

  84. i don’t have tons of money to pay for cheap a$$ hoses, was impressed with how light and flexible the pocket hose was but went to use it again and the dam thing burst. Needless to say, my husband was furious! You need to really make these better so they last longer. Never buy another one again and we the people should get our money back!

    • I like new inventions. This is a pretty good one, but the problem is that everyone seems to want to use it like they would a conventional hose.

      Things that the manufacturer needs to make clear:

      1. This is not a hose to use with sprinklers. Sprinklers need high water pressure; this product needs very, very low pressure.
      2. The hose needs to be spread out before turning on the water. It will get two to three times longer after the water is turned on.
      3. Can’t leave the hose lying around the yard like you do conventional ones. It needs to be rolled up and put away, preferably in the shade.
      4. (This should be number 1) as I mentioned before, this hose requires very, very LOW pressure. High pressure will make it burst. Very little one quarter turn will suffice. Try the lowest that you can. You can always turn it up a notch (a very little one) if it’s not sufficient. This actually saves water, as you can fill up a watering can once you have turned off the water and are waiting for the hose to contract.
      5. Don’t yank it around like you do a conventional hose. A sure way to break it, especially if it is under pressure.
      6. Take it in in the winter if you live in a below freezing area. You’re not going to be using it during those months anyway.
      7. Buy it through Amazon.com. No hassle returns and/or replacements.

      Those are my suggestions for now.

      Disclaimer: I do not work for any pocket hose company nor Amazon.com.

      • A hose is to be used as a hose. Using it with kid gloves is self-defeating to its purpose. We have had 2, both burst. Always stored with no water pressure, in the shade, neatly coiled. We are in a moderate climate. The product is inferior and should be removed from the market place.

      • A note about water pressure… It cannot be compressed! What do I mean…? You said… to use low water pressure when using the Pocket Hose. Well, unless you are using some high tech water supply system that limits static pressure to below say, 10-15 p.s.i. or you don’t use a nozzle at the end of the hose, your going to be between 40 to 80 p.s.i. Most homes whether they are supplied by private wells or public water companies have ratings of between 40 to 80 p.s.i. This is what the hose is rated for. That being being said, one would have to run the hose without a nozzle to maintain this so called low water pressure. Assuming one had a way to determine what that pressure is, as soon as you stop the flow at the hose outlet, the pressure would quickly build to the set line pressure. The product clearly states the safe operating hose pressure limit is between 40 and 80 p.s.i. My water pressure is a steady 40 p.s.i. It took only three months of use to develop three aneurysms… You may not work for The HOSER company, but your review does no justice to this grossly inferior and overpriced rip-off product…

  85. Love the product but won’t ever buy another one again.
    I am on the 6th one and it’s costing me a fortune. My mother loves her garden and the hose was nice and light for her but, the hoses just keep on bursting.You need to do something about them your robbing people blind.

    • Why would you buy more than one? I have 1 but won’t buy another, it’s going to be put in the trash if no way of getting our money back.

  86. I have bought 3 of the Pocket Hoses, 2 fifty and 1 seventy five footer. For about three uses they are the best hoses I’ve ever used. After that each one has started leaking and are useless. I think I have given this hose as many chances as I can and will now move on to something that works.

  87. Like many, many others, I have also bought several (3) of these hoses only to have them burst open within a year. The concept is wonderful, but the inner tube needs to be perfected. The heat, UV rays, and water pressure take a toll on the tube over a short lenght of time. With my last hose I even took to disconnecting it and storing it in my garage hoping to extent its life. However, within 1 year it too burst. I’m done with these type of hoses and have bought a very nice light weight hose from HomeDepot and am very happy with it. Save your money on any future purchases of these “expandable” hoses. And, don’t be fooled by their guarentees. Their terms and conditions limit their liabilty and is only good for 30days. The hose will last for that minimum time but WILL eventually fail shortly.

  88. My sister and I love these hoses. Granted, the original model was cheap and flimsy so we didn’t try them until the following year when they had improved the connectors. I did manage to get leaks in two of them because I pulled them too far. I’m more careful now and have just bought the new, improved 75′. These hoses are so lightweight and easy to deal with, we didn’t care if we had to replace them every year. Fortunately, this hasn’t been the case. With a little care they last from year to year. The pocket hose makes my life so much easier, I don’t dread hauling out the hoses now or put off watering.

  89. Bought the 75 Ft. Pocket Hose and after 15 days it burst open. This hose needs to be perfected. Right now its garbage!!!

  90. This “Pocket Hose” is defective because it simply is too delicate and easily tears and bursts ! True, it is lightweight, kink-proof and goes virtually anywhere with ease. However, I have already gone through (3) this summer and keep returning the broken one for a new one. I paid the original price of $ 19.99 once in Home-Depot. At first, it was a dream come true ! Never kinks or twists, does not tangle or get caught on corners and curves….and I could bring it literally anywhere around the home….where before with an ordinary hose, I could never ! Washing the car, watering the flowerbeds and hosing the windows was now much easier ! I was a happy camper ! Then………BAM !!!!! A bubble appeared on the skin and soon it bursted and spews water all over….the dream hose quickly became a nightmare hose, and in less than a month ! This has happened to all (3) of them….and I still cannot figure out why ? It was not abused and always hung carefully on my hose-ring on the wall after each use. Why ? Because it is defective, that’s why ! The slightest abrasion from the sidewalk, a step, a shrub or tree trunk ….and it will fray the outer skin and cause it to burst ! No normal hose can be this delicate……my advice, return it to the store and get your money back until they come up with a stronger and more durable design….if ever ?

  91. Do not buy a pocket hose. I have bought 3 and none of the three hoses lasted the season under moderate use. The hose broke or sprunt a leak

  92. DO NOT waste your money!!! I just threw out my 3rd one. They all explode. Love the concept. But one of these manufactures should fix this problem. Until then, don’t buy it.

  93. I have purchased a total of 4 pocket hoses. 3 of the original ones. The first one leaked really bad at the fitting so I returned it for another one. This one has worked good so far, but I only use it about once every couple of month to add extra water to a flower bed with a sprinkler system. I then purchased a second original one and the fourth time I used in the first month it blew apart in the middle. I decided not to purchase any more. I really like the ease of using this type of hose so when I saw the new pocket hose ultra I decided to try it again. This new one worked fine for about 2 months of using it about once a week. I was watering my flowers today, (nothing with thorns) and it started spraying from a hole in the middle of the hose. I have always drained the hoses and stored them in the shade. The ultra was always stored inside the garage. After spending over $100 on these hoses I am very disappointed with the product. Nice idea and ease of use but the quality and durability is terrible.

  94. You need to refund everyone that has written a review,which were all negative. Those hoses are junk.

  95. We bought several hoses and have returned them to the store. I have one that busted today. I can not return it.because I don’t have a receipt. The other I will return when it burst. The store I bought them from have had many of these hoses returned. They are not strong and sturdy enough to use like the regular hoses.

  96. Don’t waste your money. In 2014 I bought five hoses, all 50ft. Two of them blew at the fitting part first day I bought them. A few lasted the rest of the summer. This July of 2014 took them out and realized that during the storage of these hoses, they like rotted and broke up as soon as I picked them up. I have seen advertisements where the fittings are made from steel, don’t know if these work better, but the fact that the hose itself rotted and broke apart, seems like both hoses are made from the same material between the ends. Will never buy another.

  97. Bought 4- 50ft pocket hoses for our garden club to water the town area. It worked well for 2 wks after that I noticed areas in the hose itself developed leaks and water spraying out. The next time I used it all the hoses developed leaks along the hose it self. So as I am watering the flower garden everything else is getting wet. This product appears poorly made and would suggest no one buy this product.

  98. Nice hose but should come with a warning to avoid rose bushes or any plant with thorns, 25` just touched my roses and punctured the hose, into the garbage. Tried again with 50` 3/4 bronze hose and same thing, was near the roses and same thing, another puncture so into the trash again…tried to save it with duct tape but pressure too great & leaks like a sieve.

  99. I have just purchased my 7th Pocket Hose in the last two years. I have had five of them explode after a couple of weeks of using them on an almost daily basis. I don’t think this should be happening. I am careful not to drag them over sharp objects or catch them on fences, etc, but they just keep springing leaks that rival a volcano erupting. They give no warning, just boom! and there’s water shooting everywhere. Why do I keep buying these hoses? Simply because they are easy to handle and store. Notice they don’t come with any guarantee or warranty.

  100. Don’t waste your money on this POS! It won’t extend unless it’s water pressured which makes it worthless for placing around yard, worse you have to turn it on at the spraying end which makes even less than worthless for lawn sprinkling. It leaks like a 3 inch sieve at the connection and you cannot stop it, bought it today will return it tomorrow, buy a good hose instead they cost the same, $30.00

  101. I purchased 2 pocket hoses last year. When the first one busted I reported it to Pocket Hose and it was quickly replaced. They have now, however, all busted… I have now resorted back to my rubber hose, glad I did not throw them out

  102. I think this is a good idea, unfortunately the product is not fully perfected. First I bought a 75′ which exploded in less than 30 days. Thinking I may have done something to cause that, I bought a 50′ ,,, which is less than 1 week old and has 3 pin hole leaks. product does not come with any guarantee, and I see why.. do not waste your money

  103. I purchase three hoses. One lasted 2 weeks. The other 2 lasted about 8 weeks. I really liked how easy they were to use but the longevity is not there. It was a waste of money. They can not be repaired. The company should be ashamed of themselves for the poor quality of their merchandise.

  104. Advice for buyers: I purchased 2x 50 ft. lengths from Bed Bath and Beyond. Each time a section breaks I take it back and they replace it. So far this has happened 4 times. I always have one section to use. They never last very long no matter how careful you are. The idea is great. The application is a long ways from perfected. I would pay twice the price for a good product. I hope they keep working on getting it right.

  105. have purchased 3, 50 ft heavy duty hoses and all three of them bursted in the middle. they only lasted 2months. i would never buy this product again or would recommemd this to anyone . its a big waiste of money. paid good money for these hoses, its a big waiste

  106. We have bought several of these hoses. Very easy to use and store but the quality is HORRIBLE. They rupture way to easily and cannot be repaired. The longest one has lasted is 3 months.

  107. We have purchased three of the different sizes of Pocket Hose and all of them have leaked. We have put tape over the leak and the leaks just continue on down the hose. Was very very disappointed in a product that, by all standards on TV, was suppose to be a wonderful product. Guess it is time to go back to the old hoses that DON’T LEAK!!!!

  108. Same problem bought 2 of the 50ft hoses and the end section ruptured at the middle unable to fix in any manner unlike conventional hoses. This only after one season of use. Do not think of buying this product again and do not recommend to anyone. This is an “expensive” cheap hose.

    • I had 2 50′ pocket hoses connected and both tore at the ends. I called them, and they said to send a picture of them and they will replace them. luckily I only bought them after they went 2 for $20

  109. I have purchased 2 pocket hoses this summer and they have both busted. Very unhappy after spending $40.00 dollars!

  110. I have bought 3 hoses and 2 of them have blown out, one in the middle and the other at a connector . not very happy with this product

  111. I suppose I am a gluten for punishment. The pocket hose is so convenient; however, it never lasts for more than 1 season of use. I have bought 3 and each time the hose bursts and has to be thrown away. I follow the directions on making sure the water had drained from the hose after use, but it still bursts. Don’t waste your money!!


  113. I purchased a pocket hose at Walgreen’s and had used about 3 times when I decided to use it again. You really should warn customers that the covering can split and the inside tube will make a hug bubble and pop – spraying the user thoroughly. I wont make that purchase again.

  114. This is my 4th pocket hose and every one of them busted..keep your money in your pocket.This is a piece of junk

  115. Love the concept but a high priced piece of junk. Sprung numerous tiny leaks expect it to blow up any day.

  116. Got this as a Christmas gift last year. I loved it, until it split after about 6 uses. From reading all the complaints here, I won’t even try another one. Looks like you get what you pay for – cheap junk.

  117. I bought the 25 ‘ pocket hose last year and the 2nd time I used it this year a bubble formed in it and it burst !!wish I knew where to contact them so I could send a photo of it , as I bought it in Walmart and don’t have the receipt.

  118. I spent $50 on the 100′ Ultra Pocket Hose. The second time we used it a giant leak came in it. We traced the path where it was laying and there were no sharp objects, it was laying on a paved sidewalk, pine needle mulch and grass. The real kicker is my neighbor came out of his house as this was happening and said his did the same thing. Apparently there is no such thing as a refund.

    • 9 of 10 of TV products never heard of refunds and NO I DL not want cruises, discount ” vacations” or any number of UNADVERTISED RIP- OFFS. The hose is junk. Bj
      Buy a good hose, let the sun work on it and mine is 12 yrs old.

  119. I love my Pocket Hose. It is the great and has made my life much easier. I love gardening but developed some muscular problems that made handling a heavy conventional hose almost impossible. I saw the Pocket Hose and thought what do I have to lose. I am so glad I did. I have not had any problems with the hose but I do follow the manufacturer’s directions for storing it. This is the second year I have used it. I bought a reserve Pocket Hose just in case but have had no need for it. Take a chance! You will love it.

  120. Great idea but they just don’t perform. Like many others mine burst only after about 4 times being used. This product needs to be taken off the market before someone gets seriously hurt. My 75 ft. One burst as soon as I turned on the water not only did it scare the hell out of me but the dam thing flew up and almost caught my eye.

  121. I purchase two (2) of these hoses, and used one 4 times. Each time I emptied it, hung it to dry before storing. However, on using it the 5th time it suddenly started to bulge near the connection to the faucet. By the time I got to it faucet to turn it off the hose burst soaking me down with water and everywhere. On examining it I found that the green fabric had failed causing the rubber hose to become like aneurysm and bursting withing seconds. As I pulled the green fabric on the burst end, it kept tearing and breaking off. This material is pathetic and should never have reached to market. I will never buy another one again, nor recommend to anyone – so potential buyers, beware.

  122. I bought a 50ft hose from pch it burst after the 2nd use so I really like the concept I bought another from home depot it it did not burst but it started to with a bubble at the nozzle end so I wrapped it with gorilla tape to keep it from bursting I hope that you can get this problem fixed because I really love the concept

    • Conceptually, a great idea, but technically a failure! If technical hurdle overcome, would make some one a fortune. Until such time, best to not waste your money!

  123. Not worth the time to look it up. Burst two of them within less than an hours use on both. Very low water pressure without sprayer nossle. these things need a lot of work before they will be useable. Please do not waste your money on them, use a bucket you will get more done.

  124. Bought the and was excited it was so light. Turned on the faucet and boom, heard it explode. This piece of junk should be removed from shelves. Don’t buy one till the fix their design. A total waste of money from big lots store.

  125. I bought a 75ft Ultra pocket hose at Bed Bath and Beyond and paid $29.00 for it. I used it for three weeks and it worked great then while washing down the driveway, it burst. I will take it back but of course I no longer have the receipt; so wish me luck.
    After reading all these negative reviews I should have never purchased it. Why does the manufacture not fix this

  126. I bought three of your hoses and each one split at the seam. You would think that I would have learned after two. I will not try again

  127. Every one I bought are no more. They all blew out, from a small stream to instant gusher. Good idea but not there yet. Waiting for a good warranty, then maybe try again.

  128. Piece of junk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If anyone of you are thinking about buying one forget it they are not worth it. There needs to be a lawsuit against every company out there that even thinks about selling this junk. I have had two and took back two and now need to take these two back but do not have the receipt. So out of luck for me but I wanted to warn others.

  129. after 1 year the pocket hose got a leak in the side of the hose. not as good as told on t-v. had to through away. junk.

  130. I purchased two 50 ft hoses last year. One I used last year and it worked fine for a while and then it started leaking at the connector area. The other I just took out of the box this year and first time out, it starts spewing out of the base of the connector like a flood. I also have a 25 ft one and have had no problems with it at all, yet. Very ticked off. These things ain’t cheap.

  131. The pocket hoses are a rip off. I have tried the original one that is green then the improved one that was blue and finally the New and improved black ones. They all ruptured in about a month after we started using them. The ones I shipped back for a replacement which never came. It cost a lot to ship them back so we gave up. Don’t be suckered in and DON’T PURCHASE THESE HOSES, THEY ARE NOT WORTH IT.

  132. I purchased the Flexable Hose in Nov., 2014, when the weather got colder (around Dec/Jan) I brought the hose into the garage.
    Yesterday, I hooked the hose up and it burst. I like the weight of the hose, I purchased at Walmart, but is should last longer than 3 months of use.
    I don’t want my money back, I want a new Flexable Hose. How do I go about this?

  133. At a Home and Garden show I offered the salesman $40 for the demo hose he was using. Two years later it is still working perfectly.

  134. Had two hoses both ruptured in less than sixty days, no response from company, poor customer service, do not purchase this product poor quality no refund.

  135. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! Invest in a regular hose instead!

    I bought four of these lousy pocket hoses for each of my outdoor areas. All four of these stupid things spilt open within a month! This is the first and last time I will deal with anything advertised on TV again! Lesson learned: you get what you pay for-and it is usually crap! No wonder the instructions say “Keep dry and avoid contact with water”.

    • The directions said “Keep dry and avoid contact with water”? Really? Wow, what a red flag! I was just thinking of buying them. Hmmmm….maybe not!

  136. I have purchased three in the past two years. The first two were the original hoses. Both were defective. Leaked like a seve from the connector part. Then the new hose came out that was advertised as three times stronger. I purchased this new hose and used it three times. The first two times it worked great and the problem with the connector seemed to have been addressed. The third time I used the hose to wash down my driveway. Worked fine but when I turned off the water supply two pin holes appeared on the side of the hose shooting out water. What a waste of money. I contacted customer service for the company and got someone from India. When I told him about what had happened with me he said there are many satisfied customers. Great!

  137. It was a nice idea and had lots of promise, but they are junk. No durability. Hose splits making them a useless pile of bleak. Bought 3 of them and 1 was even “heavy duty”. Don’t waste your money


  139. I love the light weight of the hose and how compact they are. Ho-ever I don’t think I will be buying another one. I the past 2 years a have purchased a least 5 or 6 and they just keep breaking. The last one I bought was supposed to be 3 times stronger. Same on me for not saving receipts but I don’t. I did returned 1 last year and I did get a replacement from Walmart but it too broke by the end of summer. At $20.00 dollars a shot I could have bought 2 or 3 stronger hoses.

    Yours truly Bill Johnson

  140. I bought this 2 months ago and I have used it 4 times and it blew up.How do you contact anyone? You cant Dont buy this it is a scam just buy a regular hose.

  141. I’ve purchased 2 of these 50 ft. Pocket Hose, one last Spring and the second this Spring. I have a flat cement patio that’s only a few years old and a soft side “Easy Set Pool” in the back yard. No sharp edges anywhere, but I guess even that was to rough because BOTH of the Pocket Hoses failed with multiple holes and we were luck no-one was injured! The concept is awesome, but the actual product sucks! DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT- I feel its just a matter of time before we see this in the news regarding an injury and we can only hope and prey that its not a child that gets hurt.

  142. At first I thought this was a great buy. After pulling it across my driveway, it ruptured. WHAT A PIECE OF CRAP!!!!! Not worth it!!!!

  143. I bought one of these hoses and I just loved it. I used it only on my patio to water shrubs and to replenish the bird bath. I kept it out of the sun and never turned the water pressure on high, but after one month a big white bubble came out of the side – right through the outer material – and burst. The material inside the hose looked like what a balloon is made out of. Very flimsy. This was the hose that was supposedly 3 times stronger than the original. I loved it while it lasted, but a month is not long enough for a hose to last. Will not buy another.

  144. Garbage!!! I used the product approximately 4 times and it exploded. Ripped apart at the seam. The idea is great, however the product does not hold up.

  145. I loved my hose until it broke the other day. The hose was only 2 seasons old. Now I would like a replacement.

  146. I have 3 of these hoses. All three burst after the 1st use. Blew water everywhere and really made a scary noise. Total ripoff. All the money down the hole and no garden hose. I had very little water pressure on them, and followed instructions to make sure they were open before turning on the water.

    My son bought me one of the 3X stronger ones and it is still working. (At least for now!)

    People should be given new 3X stronger hoses to replace the others. I would never buy another hose unless it has a full money back guarantee. Beware! Do not buy this hose!

  147. I have purchased 3 of these 50 ft hoses already and each one of them blew out a hole in the hose. I am tired of replacing the hose which otherwise I really like. I am going to purchase a regular garden hose this time. Otherwise I’m just wasting my money and get frustrated. What’s guaranteed are the connections not the hose itself. Poor quality product.

  148. I bought one 50 Ft pocket hose. After two weeks this hose got two holes and started to leak so bad,, The whole idea of the hose is great but more R&D is needed, right now this hose is a Piece of junk.

  149. Was washing my truck this morning, the hose was not kinked or anything, then out of the blue just bubbled up & exploded ! We had one spring a leak before (the green one) I think I’m done with these. As I’ve read in other complaints, we actually used the hose less than 10 times. They seem to only last so long, NOT VERY LONG AT ALL.

  150. Bought one and loved it. It was perfect for the application I had. I kept it out of the sun and then coiled up under a patio cover when not in use. exactly 30 days after its purchase, it blew up on me. Thinking I had a faulty one, I purchased another one. As stated earlier, I loved it. 31 days later it blew up on me. My wife got one from one of our kids for her birthday. My guess is it should blow around August 15. DON’T BUY ANY OF THESE HOSES! I could not locate a warranty of any kind so that is a clue.

  151. What a waste of money.I took the pockethose,50 ft length out of the package,screwed it onto my water faucet,tuned on the water and it blew a leak in the hose.Not very happy.Will never buy another again.

  152. Total RIP-OFF….. Why because its made in China !! I was duped purchased 2… both hoses burst at the nozzle connection…. Please human population don’t purchase this hose , lets put them out of business !!!!

  153. Just as everyone here stated… These hoses only last for a few uses. Too bad too. I really loved it for the short time it worked. Stupid me, I thought the first bursted hose was a fluke. Decided to try again. Bought 2 more, one for the front of my house, one for the back. They have all sprung leaks right through the fabric! And I had followed directions to a T never leaving water in the hose after use. Very disappointed!! None of them lasted more than a few weeks. I’m now out $60.

  154. I bought 2 75 ft hoses and 20 50 ft hoses.This is their bill

    Pocket Hose Ultra 75 ft + elbow 40.99 (7.99 S+H)

    Pocket Hose Ultra 75 ft 20.99

    Pocket Hose Ultra 50 ft + elbow 27.98 (7.99 S+H)

    Pocket Hose Ultra 50 ft 16.99

    Priority Processing 9.99

    Total 125.03

    I read the reviews on this website after this purchase. While I have had these for only one day, I am not looking forward to what others have experienced. But it seems likely I have been duped like many others.

  155. This is the worst hose ever produced. At first we were happy with the lightweight design. It was great for washing the car and watering the plants. Had it three months and started springing leaks. Not at the connectors, but in the hose. Now leaks like a soaker hose. It’s junk. Buy a soaker hose or spend the extra cash for something way better. Stay away from this hose. I can’t say it anymore plainly.

  156. What a piece of junk! Mine burst after a couple weeks. A crappy hose. Don’t waist your time or money on this awful product!

  157. I got this hose a s a gift and went to use it and it leaked, badly! I called customer service and was told, IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE PROOF OF PURCHASE that’s too bad, deal with it, even though I had the UPC and photos. I guess that email is something new and they did not understand the power of the internet? I offered to email them pictures and they said no!!! The hose is okay but if you buy it, and have problems, hold on to all docs about where you bought it, when, the person who sold it to you and where you were and what you were doing when you bought it, you may have a shot?

  158. Today was only my 2nd time using the pocket hose. I was washing windows with chemical cleaner and the hose burst, luckily it didn’t burst next to me. Would never buy one again. I purchased for $20 worse 20 spent.

  159. Purchased a 25″ original pocket hose at Dollar General w/cash for a Christmas gift. We opened it late spring and used it less than 12 times. The fabric tore just below where the sprayer was attached and the hose went flying. Called customer service and without a receipt they will do NOTHING. Unfortunately, we also purchased 2 50′ Pocket Hose Ultras at Home Depot and got rid of all our older hoses. No wonder they made them stronger, the originals break very easily! The claim is also, however, that the connections NEVER leak on the Ultra….WRONG! They leak CONSTANTLY! (still have that receipt thank goodness!) These products are JUNK!!!!!

  160. my wife got 2 50 foot hoses did not last 1 week my water pressure is 32 pounds junk junk junk
    just as I always tell my kids if it got a lot of marketing it not worth any thing as you can see buy the reviews it is junk America will never learn

  161. Bought the pocket hose, used it the first time and the nozzle fitting broke and then about 3 minutes, is flew off the fitting (on 7/ off switch). It is junk, so I took it back, got another one and it leaked after about 3 times of use. It’s a nice concept of being lightweight and retracts back. These do not work and are not a good buy for the consumer. I keep hoping for something better and stronger to come along. Read up on the other flex hoses and they are worse. Buyer beware !

  162. Do not – DO NOT! – buy the pocket hose. As Seen On TV? Hey, Robert Karn, why don’t you show them leaking, bursting, and exploding on TV? One of mine did, after a week of use, and I’m not taking a chance on the other. I’m so disappointed in this product! I’m so happy Walmart has a good return policy!

  163. Keep the receipt and packaging – Bought a Pocket Hose Ultra from a local hardware store June 4, 2014; Used it about 6 times or so until July 4, 2014, when the hose sprung a leak. Pocket Hose Ultra Customer Service phone # 1-855-235-2083 – after the voice mail run-around, press 0 to connect to a real person. They require a copy of the purchase receipt for refund or replacement. I do not want a replacement, as the item is a piece of junk and there is no guarantee another one will be any better. By the way, there is a class action suit in progress for Pocket Hoses purchased between Nov. 4, 2009 and Jan. 30, 2014: https://www.hosesettlement.com

  164. I bought 2 of the 50 foot pocket watering hoses. They are junk.
    They both popped and water went every where. I will never buy
    another one. It was a waste of money.
    I payed $20.00 each.

  165. This pocket hose is junk. Mine isn’t even 2 weeks old and it already has 3 leaks. This is not a good buy.

  166. Bought 2 50′ hoses. I just 2 short weeks I have returned 4 hose. Why does Home Depot sell Chinese junk. I hope I will eventually have two hose the will not leak. But, I doubt it. Oh well it ‘s off to the Home Depot in a few days for another replacement. Live and learn.

  167. I purchased 2 pocket hose in March 2014. I paid the extra money for the ultra thinking this would ensure reliability. Imagine my surprise yesterday when one of them burst. I have been extra careful to empty them after each use. I have kept them covered from weather. Loved how light weight they were. Was a little concerned when I saw them came from China. Then trying to contact someone because of the guarantee, that is a joke. You cannot reach a person on the website or on the phone. BUYER BEWARE. I will not buy another of these.

    • I agree….Except I received 2 50ft hoses as a gift from my niece and low and behold after using them for 2 weeks I now have discovered 2 holes the second one this morning and it is definitely shot and unusable now!
      I now see they are selling the Pocket Hose Ultra which is supposed to be 3X stronger?
      Why would a company that knows the original pocket hoses do not last more then a couple of uses NOT allow their customers to return the original (green) hoses for the newer, more improved pocket hoses?
      These hoses are NOT inexpensive, my niece paid $40 for two 50ft hoses!!
      I really loved using the light weight hoses, it made it much easier to use on my flower beds.
      But seriously, what are we all to do that do not have the receipt to return them? I know I cannot afford to go out and buy two more hoses to replace the two that I already have!??

  168. I bought three fifty foot pocket hoses last summer (2013) and they have been used no more then six times and been kept in my garage. One started leaking at the fitting and the other leaks at the shut off valve. I am totally disappointed with this product, I would buy the newer ones but I am afraid I would have the same problem, too bad, great idea, bad workmanship !

  169. Pocket Hose -Made in China JUNK–Got one as a gift–leaked along the hose after a week. Bought #2 – leaks at faucet week 2, thought I had caused it……… Bought # 3 and has leaks all along the hose—. Great idea but these things do not last! No more!

  170. I’ve experienced same problem with this product as others. Adapters developed small cracks and leaks. Hose elastomer/fabric was not meant to last. It burst within 3 months. Was unable to repair with available products from our local hardware store. Its sad that the public was taken advantage of with the marketing ploy. Then rest of the story should explain that this product is shoddy and will not last more than a few weeks. The actor promoting this product should consider distancing himself from this company ASAP if he has any sense of decentcy and morality.

  171. We purchased one and it worked really great for a very short time. I really think that if they could do some more R&D it would be a great product. But if they are just in it to make some quick money then they have the perfect product. Don’t know where it is made but if it is a USA product then you are making us look BAD! Come on people you should be proud of what you are producing and make it right.

  172. Worked a couple of times then decided to split. Inside is NOT fire hose strength but a cheap some kind of light white silicone. Wish I had saved my money and bought an old fashion, dependable hose!

  173. I had purchased two 50 foot of these. I have to say I liked the idea. Both of these leaked with in just a few weeks. Even a good product(these are not) has an occasional lemon, so this time I bought the 75 foot hose. From the first time I used it, it had so many leaks that the only way you could have used it would have been to drape it around your plants and use it for a soaker hose!

  174. Wish I had read reviews. I was happy with my 75ft pocket hose for two days. Day 3 hose sprang a leak in the middle. Just another AS SEEN ON TV scam.

  175. My story is the same as everyone else’s. You use it once and it springs a leak. I heading back to Home Depot for a refund. Oh yah, it’s junk.

  176. Repaired pocket hose three times waiting for hose to blow again. What a piece of junk. Ought to be banned from selling.. Used hose very little.

  177. I just want you to know that I purchased 4 of these for my Husband for Father’s Day. He wanted this hose badly because of the large yard we have. Each and everyone of them exploded in the middle when he put them together. Not all at once, but one after another. He would take one off and sure enough another would explode right in the middle of watering the gardens. I could not return them, because I no longer had a receipt. So basically, I threw $80.00 in the toilet. It would be nice if the company that made them stood by there guarantee and replaced each one to all the consumers that wasted their money. But, as you can see, Can’t find the right website to email them and ask for replacements. Don’t buy this product unless you have money to throw away.

  178. i purchased 6 hoses and each and every one of them either leaked or exploded. What a piece of junk. i call and complain and they send me more they dont last either.

  179. we purchased a 50 ft. hose. The second time I used it it burst. It scared the heck out of me when it happened. I purchased it three months ago so I cannot return it to home depot. I think the better business needs to be notified by all these people that were scammed. There are many. It is not right that this company is making millions of dollars on us and they are selling us a a product that does not work and nobody is doing anything about it, Great class action suit.

  180. I purchased a 25 Ft. pocket hose April of 2014 and June 28, 2014 under normal use it blew a hole in it. In one day I had 3 items that were made in China fail. Where are we headed?

  181. hi I just wanted to let you know the one I bought last summer late made it only until this spring.
    I hook it up to us it and it leaks so bad from the tap end I can not use it. Its now junk. I did buy another one but I want you to know I am not happy.

    chuck kitzman

  182. Received a new pocket hose, light and flexible like advertised, but the second time I used it more water came out around the couplers than the end. One of the most worthless products I’ve gotten and what a waste of money. Every time I see the commercial I want to throw it at Carnes!


  184. I bought 2 50 ft. hoses from Wal-Mart in April 2013. They were FANTASTIC to begin with. I kept them inside at all times for fear the neighbors would steal them (so they weren’t left out in the weather). In June 2013, I proceeded to clean out my rain gutters on my house. One of the connectors blew on one of the hoses then so I re-vamped it well enough to continue use. A month or so later, during normal use, that same hose sprung a leak. I continued to use it. By summers end, last year, the other hose had sprung a small leak. I stored the hoses inside for the winter. I got them out a couple of months ago to wash out my lawnmower after use and the last hose to spring a leak was worse. Yesterday, I went to wash out my lawnmower again, hooked up the hoses & turned the water on only to find the hose blown at the hydrant. It was a GREAT concept & I LOVE the idea but at 20 bucks a whack, I expect them to last a hell of alot longer than they did. I would say, back to the drawing board guys because this was an EPIC FAIL!

  185. Bought 3 of these 1 50 ft and 2 25 ft. ALL burst just after 35 days and walmart let me return 1 but Kinneys wont after 30 days. I will tell everyone DON’T buy these because of this bursting problem. loved the ease of rolling back up but spending 50 dollars a year on a hose is ridiculous!!!!

  186. We bought 2 last yr…50ft each, one started leaking at the nozzle and my husband without me knowing threw it away. Then we were left with the other 50ft and it burst. Should be able to get our 40.00 spent back. Bought another 75ft supposingly stronger and it burst just 2 weeks of having it. Returned it back to K-Mart and they said they have had a lot of these returned. It’s a frickin ballon.

  187. I purchase a 75′ pocket hose 3 months ago and it started leaking so bad it was unusable even as a drip hose…. Worst scam I ever came across. The tool time actor should be ashamed to promote such a piece of Crap….

  188. I purchased a 25ft hose last year and the nozzle is leaking already this year. Do you plan to replace this defective hose? I see many, many complaints about this product.

  189. I bought 2 of the 50ft hoses and thought at first use they were just great. WRONG!!! After the second use one of the hoses burst, the second hose began leaking after the third time using it. Big waste of money…

  190. I purchase 3 of these things so far and each one burst! Such a dissappointment!! It’s an awesome concept but please make it stronger!! I give up finally and will go back to the old pain in the ass rubber hoses!

  191. I picked up the 50 ft pocket hose and in the first year it was leaking so bad we tried to tape it but it failed. The plastic connections are junk. We are both elderly and thought it would be easier to have but to now buy a new rubber hose that is made of metal and not leak. I am now telling everyone I know not to buy this product. I purchased the hose at Home Dept in Syracuse, NY.I agree with every comment above to say it is a worthless piece of junk.

  192. These hoses are a waste of money. Bought 4 and 3 failed within the first week. The first 2 I returned and replaced also failed! Very disappointed. Want my money back. Still have receipt since it was only 2 weeks. DON’T BUY ONE!!!!

  193. Anyone that buys the pocket hose is wasting their money. I wouldn’t give you 2 cents for one. I bought the original, the x hose pro , and the one they say is 3 times stronger. None of them lasted more than a week using it everyday. By far the most wasted money I have ever spent. I short Its sucks the big one.

  194. I liked the idea. Bought two of them on line and they both split after about a month of use. I was still a fan so bought 2 more, but upgraded to two differnent brands at higher prices. Of the two new hoses, one failed at the first use, the connecter poped off! I replaced that with a hose advertised at 3x stronger, (which was one of the 2 replacedment hoses I bought). So now I have two hose of the 3x stronger variety. One of those has since poped a leak.

    My total so far, 5 hoses, 4 failures. This is all within May to June. Using them once a day for light watering. It’s a good idea but the execution needs serious work

  195. I bought two pocket hoses. After 6 months, one began leaking at the connector, the second blew out about 4 feet from end of hose. I would not invest in one of these based on my experience.

  196. Piece of junk. Fiance bought two of them on line, and the second broke this evening while had neighbor’s RV hooked up. Water, water everywhere. Do not ever want to see one of them again.

  197. I wish I had read the reviews for the Pocket Hose before purchasing the joke. It really is a piece of junk. It worked as advertised for three different times then promptly ruptured. This hose is the 50 footer which I will be returning to K-Mart——hopefully for a refund.

  198. I loved my Pocket Hose. I used it for about three months. I liked the lightness, and how it retracted. Mine may have lasted longer because it was stored in the shade. Yesterday it exploded. I almost hit the ground, thinking is was a gunshot. I don’t think I’ll replace it with another Pocket Hose if they aren’t going to honor their own warrantee.

  199. What a great idea,but like most ideas,another failer. You as the company should honor anyone who bought this complete disaster hose & replace at no charge with something that will last more than 5yrs or money back. DO NOT BUY ANY HOSES FROM THIS SELLER ,THEY SHOULD BE OUT OF BUISNESS!!!!

  200. Very disappointed in my 25 foot pocket hose. although mine lasted longer than the other 850 complaints above, mine too exploded from the bottom. i’ll never purchase another product from this company again.

  201. I agree with the majority of complaints listed in this review. I have purchased two of these hoses and my contention is that it is a piece of junk. Not worth the price. Both of my hoses exploded due to a very small rose thorn. I think the company should honor all complaints and pay back to each customer the cost of these hoses. What a scam!!!

  202. I thought this would be the best for me being so light weight…well that is the ONLY thing good about it…it did work for the most part other than leaking, the 1st 3 months, but when I stored it for the winter and took it back out, the 1st hook up it exploded and soaked me from head to toe and then wouldn’t even expand enough to use until I could get another hose! WHAT A WASTE AND YOU 100% GUARANTEE IS FALSE!!!!!

  203. The very first time I used my pocket hose it leaked in the first foot of the hose. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT if you are looking for a hose that works

  204. I bought 2 hoses. One has pin holes everywhere. The I use the other one my RV hookup. If it breaks and floods an RV park, I will sue this company. Total piece of crap!!!!

  205. bought one and now i have three pin holes that leak leak leak….do not waste money buying this product 50ft

    • I bought this and I am 72 years young a waste of time when I finished water it did not shrink back up so have to go get the big hose out again. I sure wish would stop taking advantage of the people.

  206. I have been so disappointed with these stupid water hoses!!! I was not wise in buying 2 from the beginning before checking out the first one. One of the hoses burst the first time I used it, showering me with water from head to foot before I could make it to the spigot to cut it off. I thought I would try the second one and then discovered it burst on the second use of it. Well I thought they had improved them when the dark green one 3X stronger came out so I was unwise in buying it! It lasted through 3 times of use and would you believe it burst also. Now I have spent 19.95 each for these unbelievable pieces of junk for a total of over $60.00 and didn’t save my receipts!! I want this company to refund my money!! They all are in my garage and I am very angry that the company involved is ignoring this junk they keep selling!!!

    • I too, bought two of these hoses, spending $40. One for the front yard, the other for the back yard. I had both for about 4 months (Voiding the 100% unconditional guarantee) and on the third use, the front yard hose burst right at the end where the nozzle was. I was showered with water from head to toe. (Sound familiar?) I went to the back yard to get the other on and as soon as I turned the water on, it started blowing a huge balloon next to the faucet. Again, I didn’t manage to get it turned off until I got showered.

      The inner liner is nothing more than one of those skinny clown balloons that they can twist into amusing shapes for the kids. What a piece of junk!

  207. I actually talked husband into buying one of those pocket hoses. We used it a couple of times and last time it just popped like a balloon. Completely disappointed in this produce would never purchase another one or recommend to anyone to buy one. Waste of money.

  208. Bought a 25 ft hose, leaked at faucet after first use, a big disappointment. Explodes under pressure. Don’t waste your money.

  209. Garbage. The “100% Satisfaction Guarantee” is a joke. I tried for about 30 minutes to contact ANYONE to get a replacement to no avail. They conveniently don’t appear to have an option for “this product is crap!” As so many others have noted in various comment sections throughout the web, my Pocket Hose separated at the end where I had attached a spray nozzle. They are correct that it doesn’t kink and it does shrink back to a more manageable size, however, the product reduces itself to landfill after about 2 minutes of use. I’m very disappointed this turned out to be a rip off. I really wanted this product to work as advertised.

  210. I only used mine twice and it BURST ! I really liked the weight of the hose: so easy to carry. But it was total JUNK !!!! Waste of money !!!

  211. I pushased four 50 foot hoses though the mail last april 2012 not one off them are any good. Each one of them bursted at the nossel end. I really got riped off. They wouid not replace them, and were very nasty over the phone.

  212. Bought 2 of these within 3 weeks both of them burst … Don’t buy there junk !! Save yourself the problem they Will FAIL you

  213. I bought a pocket hose at Walmart. It had a falty connection that leaked, so I took it back to walmart & got a 2nd one. The 3rd time I used it, it blew a hole. I took it back to walmart & got a 3rd one. The 2nd time I used it, it blew a big hole. I gave up & took it back to walmart to get my money back. I was very careful with all 3 hoses. They just must be made of very poor quality materials. The very few times I got to use one of my 3 pocket hoses, I liked it.

  214. I bought 2 50 foot hoses at Walgreens in the middle of summer last year. The first one burst just weeks after I bought it. The second one burst just this week. They are a piece of JUNK and I wasted $40.00 on them. I have not found a phone number to talk to rep yet to complain.

  215. Bought the fifty foot and did not work out of the plastic canister. Big pressure and then the hose limps up again and trickles. Like a man with a prostate problem. Big sense to urinate and then just a trickle. Thankfully I bought it at Walmart and they will return the purchase. Maybe Telebrands needs to come out with Viagra for the pocket hose! I am laughing so hard at the idea and ramifications of that one, but would make a good scam for us sucker hose purchasers!

  216. I have bought 3 pocket hoses and 2 of them have burst right in the middle. How do I get my money back?

    • Hi Mike I’m Andrew S. Meyers, I purchased 3 of these hoses, at Wal=Mart and 2 of them burst, I threw them away so I wasn’t able to get a refund, I also bought (1) from Taylor Gifts guess what it did Burst no refund here either. I had a problem with Xhose, I received a new one no questions asked, the new one has worked find but I will say that out of (4) Pocket hoses I still have (1). Plus I bought (1) new Xhose their new one have not used it yet bought this one from ACE Hardware, I do not by anything more from Pocket Hose or Taylor Gifts. I will buy from Xhose. Oh! all 50′. coastie9608@att.net6-18-14.

  217. We have had two of the 25ft. pocket hose, one tore loose at the connector and was returned for another one. This one has once again, raveled and came apart at the faucet. We have not been able to return this one. The hose is great except for this problem in both hose. At the time we purchased two of the for both of our outside faucets. How can we get something to replace this one.

    Thank you
    Mr. Summers.

  218. Bought two of the 100 ft pocket hoses which have been replaced seven times by Telebrands. All have failed within a few days to a few weeks. I sent two of the failed hosed back to Telebrands with the understanding that I would receive the full amount of the cost of the hoses plus the cost of sending back the failed hoses. Well, I am still waiting for the refund. I call once a week and get the same story and that I will receive the funds back in 3-5 business days. Still waiting after several months. Bottom line the product is junk, good idea but defective product and design. The folks at Telebrands are not to be trusted, they are not honest and must have stolen millions with this scam. There is a Class Action Suite that one can apply to recover a bit of the cost by logging onto http://www.hosesettlement.com or calling 866-466-4667

    • Report them to your state’s attorney general’s office, sending a copy to the flaky company. Good luck

  219. If you need a real hose go ahead and buy the fire truck . Bought 2 of these neither lasted more than 3 months ! Can you say JUNK !!

      • I got a few of them, and after about a week they all busted, what a piece of junk, then I tried the new improved one that is 3x stronger. Lasted 2 days. Don’t waste your $ and there is no way to fix it.

  220. I have already gone through 4 pocket hoses. They all broke along the seams. The last one broke along the seams only after about 1 week of use. tried to glue it and today it finally gave way DON’T WASTE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON THIS JUNK OF A HOSE!!! Just go to lowes or home depot and get a real one..

  221. This product is total and utter garbage. Might last a month, a week or a day. Some one should be held responsible for the”ads” that promote this product. It should be removed from any store that sells it. Scam – Scam – Scam.

  222. I have purchased three of the ultra strong pocket hoses in the last two months and two
    of them have ruptured I the middle of the hose and sprayed water all over. The third one I have only used here times and so far so good. I have heard they have a money back guarantee, but no instructions on how to file one.

  223. After the first hose I bought leaked badly from the faucet connection, I was stupid enough to buy another one thinking the first one was a fluke. Hah! The second one did the same thing. This product was a good idea that did NOT work! What a waste of money! DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

  224. I bought the Pocket Hose last summer. I got it out 2 days ago to use it and found it leaked badly around the faucet connection. I was so disgusted I threw it in the trash.

  225. Purchased (2) of these worthless pocket hoses which are nothing but junk, junk, junk, & put in the trash soon after receiving. One hose in original packaging & the other tried once, leaking connector which sprayed me but good. They’re both in garbage heaven or was that hell. Never again will I buy anything as advertised on TV.

  226. I too bought a pocket hose approximately one and one half years ago and did not use it right away I then gave one to my granddaughter. I then tried using it and I was up on a 6 ft ladder hosing off my roof when the end completely blew off in my face, luckily it did not hit my face. They now have seen me a package as a class action suit has been started. They expect you to fill out this form with your Social on it (no way). then they are only giving you $6.00 you bet if it had struck my face and knocked me off of the ladder they would not just be having a class action suit but a regular suit instead. Did I mention I am 72 years old. My bones would not have survived.

  227. What a rip off! Wife ought 4 of these and I just tossed them ALL in the trash.

    All four failed the very first time used! Two “exploded” and leaked. and the other two had really significant leaks at BOTH ends. Will NEVER purchase anything from this outfit again!

  228. I purchased two Pocket Hoses, one the Ultra, and think this is a wonderful idea. Usage and storage is very easy. The outer material however needs to be greatly improved, both outer material of the hoses split within a two week period and will not be replacing them with new Pocket hoses.

  229. Purchased two 25 footers midsummer 2013, was very pleased with them, weight and maneuverability.
    Was careful with storage due the fabric covering, put them away drained, dry and loosely bundled on a flat surface. Planted some bulbs today and went to water them, the hose attached to the faucet, the fabric covering split and the inside over expanded and would have popped if I didn’t catch it. So I took the two hoses apart and connect the other to the faucet and began watering, about 5 minutes later the dam thing exploded in my face (funny… but not really).
    Going back to Kmart, soaking wet to return them! wish me luck

  230. I ordered the pocket hose last year as a gift….that didnt happen as the person got one as another gift… the two hoses sat in the original packages for about 9 months. I decided to use one of them last week and as soon as i connected it the thing started to leak from the fitting…i then connected the other one and within one minute of being water inflated it blew up…..
    contacting the company is impossible as they just don want to talk to anyone except to take orders for their unadulterated SHIT.

  231. I bought one of these in late winter and didn’t use it until spring. After only a week of intermittent use, the side busted out on the first 50 ft hose. I had another hose and the same thing happened. Up until the hoses failed miserably, I had been happy with the weight and the self recoiled feature of the hoses. The plastic nozzles were not durable as well. I wasted a lot of money and at the time the hoses had a 90 day warranty. By the time I needed to use the hoses, they were out of warranty so I essentially wasted the cost of the hoses, taxes, and shipping and handling, which by the way is not insignificant. Would not buy another hose unless I purchase a similar product locally from a store who will stand behind the product. this was an unmitigated waste. I called customer service and the lady there reiterated the 90 day warranty. When I pressed her she said I could return the hose at my own expense, and exchange one of them. How helpful. I decided that to pack up and mail back was not worth it since they’d only replace one. Didn’t really want a replacement hose since the quality in my mind was bad. I would not buy from from the TV or online again.

  232. I loved the concept ! but both of my hoses developed huge holes after minimal use. Waste of money if they don’t last….

  233. Pocket Hose is a rip off. Its a good idea,the hose expands and goes back like they say…But, the cheap, plastic connections leak, even when tight, and the shut off level sprouts water continuously. Good idea, but, bad manufacturing.

  234. I bought three of the pocket hose’s and all three of them leak , I didn’t know I was getting a sprinkler type garden hose , I want my money back or a pocket hose that doesn’t act like a lawn sprinkler .

  235. WORTHLESS. My wife bought 3 against my better judgement. Exchanged 2. Finally just pitched all of them. The sun breaks down the outer covering. They will split in about 3 weeks if left out. Then the inner tube bursts. Two of the hoses shut-off valves broke first time used. Joints always leaked. Buy a real hose and spare yourself. These are a waste no matter who makes them. By the way, you are always feeling them trying to coil back up if you have a full stream. Annoying!!!

  236. Everyone that bought a pocket hose please google “hose settlement” and join the class action lawsuit against the company that made this junk .

  237. I too, bought the pocket hose. It worked for a while and I thought that it was wonderful. So much for that thought, mind to also burst. I have kept it in case there is some sort of company exchange to improve their customer loyalty. They should offer to recall All defective hoses to be sent back to them for an exchange of the new and improved version. Why would anyone trust buying from them otherwise. I bought mine through Walmart. I just recently saw that they were selling the improved model on HSN. However, I restrained myself from purchasing it again, because I do not trust their quality or reliably on the pocket hose.

    As, a consumer the company should do something to gain their consumers back. Especially at $20.00 or more depending on tax or shipping. It really is a case of Buyer Beware.

  238. I purchased 2 50′ and 2 100′ hoses. Was happy to have them arrive. Immediately gave one hose to my neighbor. In 3 months of 4 to 6 per month the 100′ broke. When screwed in it just leaks at the faucet. My Gardner told me when he was watering. So I went to the box and pulled out the 50′ and it was broken out of the box. The second one broke in the middle of using it in the first usage. I may be still dumb, but I am giving this company another try because the concept is excellent. the quality is very poor. I have ordered the Pocket Hose and the X-Hose. I will try both to see which is better. At this point, I have spend close to $300 on the last order and these 2 orders. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

  239. Our neighbor said we were wasting our money—he was right. The 75′ lasted two watering sessions before it split about 1/4″ 4′ up from the nozzle end. Great idea–very poor quality.

  240. I agree with all other reviews. Great idea but a piece of junk. Maybe a company in the US can make a new, improved version. Until then, DON’T BUY this product.

  241. The pocket hose is not worth a crap. I don’t see how people can sale this junk and lie about it I am sure they made their millions on it off of hard working people and I will never order anything else from anyone this is not the first time I have been ripped off but I hope that I have learned by now. Not much out there anymore that is worth buying. All this new an improved crap is just that crap.

  242. Yes, I purchased 3 pocket hoses, at arrival one leaked at the value, weeks later one busted and months later the last one exploded. Enjoyed while they lasted which was not long. Great idea for a hose if they could greatly improve the quality. As it stands right now, it’s a rip-off.

    Extremely Disappointed, Iraida

  243. This is the worst hose ever. I purchased two hoses and got two hoses free and all of them have burst in a short period of time. Don’t waste your money on this cheaply made product.

  244. I have bought 3 pocket hoses from wallmart and wallgreens each have exploded or poped a leak at the valve which cannot be fixed-I love this idea but what a scam-and when you try to call customer service could not get through. I will be telling everyone not to buy.

  245. This hose was great at first except for the connections always leaked. Now, one of them has sprung a leak, so it’s unusable. Thought it was gonna be great but ….not so much

  246. This is the worst excuse for a hose I have ever had. Tried a total of three hoses over time and they all burst. Don’t waste your money on this product.

  247. I saw these things around and thought it was a great idea. Got one and the middle burst after the first use. I thought it was a fluke, but after reading this sites reviews I know better. Thank you for saving me from further bad purchases. P.S. If this were made in America it would be an awesome product. Save the economy, don’t buy made in China.

  248. I am on my third pocket hose at $20.00 each and all them split after only a couple of uses. this is a great product. However, I think you need to go back to the drawing board and do some improvements.

  249. If you buy one keep your receipt and the package!

    My experiences w/ the Pocket Hose are exactly the same. I purchased the first hose and about a month later, a rip broke out while I was watering. Because I didn’t keep the receipt, I bought another one because it was a great product (light weight & extremely portable which encouraged me to work on my front and back lawns) and I thought it was just a fluke that it tore at the seams. However, I kept the receipt and box on my second purchase of the hose. Well, it was a repeat performance, the second hose ripped/burst at the seams within two weeks. But I got my money back this time.

    • i brought this thing on line, it did nothing but leak and stay long. tried to contacy maker and found a complaint page, they wanted $25.00 to send a complaint, and people say it’s a great product. a great product is one the does what they say it would. a rip off is pocket hose. would cost more to return then i have in it.

  250. Terrible hoses! We bought 8 and not one lasted more than 2 weeks. Anyone have a number or address of manufacturer so I can get my money back? Thanks

  251. I did not disconnect it after each use, but the water was turned off, and it was in an always-shaded location.

    Used gently (potted plants within easy reach) POSSIBLY 5 times before it began to leak at the hose-connection point; tried to use once more, blew out completely.

    It’s a shame this great idea doesn’t work, and it’s disgusting that they put this horrible product on the market, and there are no consequences to the importer, sellers, and manufacturer.

  252. What a piece of garbage. I’ve been thru 6 hoses and now the last 2 are going back to K Mart. Not their fault , they don’t make them. The company that owns these hoses should be sued in a class action suit . If it were you or I we would be in jail for fraud and misrepresentation of the produce. Pocket Hose should mean $$ out of your pocket for nothing. I’ll paid double for American made and not this China garbage. Shame on the company for not researching the quality of their product.

  253. whatever you do don’t water your pets using this house! I purchased two of these houses and they killed all of my back yard plants! I know that they killed my plants because I brought some inside before I watered and water to using my sink, they are beautiful and thriving. The ones I watered outside using the Flex pocket hose are dead! it says inside packaging do not drink from this hose. of course I didn’t keep my receipt so I am out over $45 from Walgreens. I am not so concerned about that as I am getting the knowledge out to people not to water the animals using this hose or let their children drink from these hoses!!! PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD, DO NOT WATER YOUR ANIMALS WITH THESE HOSES!!!!!

  254. We bought one of these “pocket hoses” at walmart for their advertised price of $19.99. Each one of these has exploded and/or sprung so many leaks spraying out everywhere that we could have used it for a sprinkler. We have followed the manufacturer instructions and suggestions. We never leave it in the yard, we always empty the water out of it totally, keeping it disconnected from the faucet when it is not in use and we store it in a plastic bucket out of the heat and sun.

    Within 10 weeks, we have had to return and replace this hose 3 times! I want my money back !!! You know what, you can’t get your money back, all you can get is a store credit or a replacement! I have never been so absolutely disgusted with a product in all my life. This company should have a class action suit for false advertising and fraud!

    I only write Sincerely, due to the fact that I sincerely hope this company pulls this product off the shelf totally and that somehow they are ordered to pay out to the “victims” the money owed back to them! UGH UGH UGH

    Just Disgusted!

  255. Just got off the phone with Telebrands, the so called marketer of the Pocket hose. I was a buyer for 12 years and in sales for 30 years and I have never been so dissatisfied with a customer service dept than I was with this so called company. As with ALL the other complaints, received as a gift, the material was defective, right in the middle the hose grew a bulge then burst, then when you call them you have to have a receipt to return. What are the chances that the gift giver is going to keep the receipt and furthermore how embarrassing to ask for the receipt. I guess the original container with a UPC code on it is not proof enough that this product was purchased. In my spare time I manufactured a round plastic container and created the green insert. I never buy “as seen on tv” but since it was a gift we gave it a shot. But I can tell you this DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM TELEBRANDS. Since I’m retired I have some time to check into Legal issues on the way this company operates.

  256. I received the pocket hose as a gift from my son. I really loved it at first and was impressed so much that I recommended it to several friends. After a month of use it blew out a the connection to the spigot. I repaired that and only used it twice before the middle blew no exploded. I am very disappointed. Times are hard and $20 for something that doesn’t last 2 months is a waste that I cannot afford. Shame on you people for making such an inferior product. I wish I had a replacement or my money back. How ironic the return policy runs out with in days of the hose blowing up!!!

  257. Don”t waste your money on the *pocket hose* it is nothing but junk, I say junk…china makes junk. It leaks at both connections. If you want to throw your money away then go for it, I’ve learned to not buy “anything” that’s made in China. Not so long ago china was painting our children toys with lead paint, then put harmful ingredients in dog food that killed many dogs, this really makes me wonder what is in the pocket hose that may harm us… I certainly am very specious of what china makes…even more so now!!!!

  258. Good idea, bad material….they should have tested this before it went out to consumers and with all the complaints you think they would do something and they keep selling them…buyer beware. I purchased 2 of these the first lasted 1 week and of course do we save receipts, nope. Purchased a second, that last 4 weeks and then the middle blew up like a balloon and popped. Of course you can’t call the company and complain, no number. Maybe if it was made in the USA it would have lasted a lot longer. Don’t waste your money.

  259. I too bought one! It took me awhile since nothing is as it seems! First use I thought ” what a great product” After five uses It burst! I did not keep the receipt so I’m just out the price. Would have been a great idea just poor material. Will never buy as seen on TV items again!

  260. Valve cracked. Got a nick in the outer fabric. Hose popped.

    Customer service (India?) said, “send us your receipt and we will replace, bye.” Then hung up me. Brilliant.

    $20, 4 months, that’s $5 per month for hose rental.

    Spread the word: Do Not Buy.

  261. I bought this Pocket hose at the Family Dollar Store where they have a “as seen on tv” display. The hose lasted for 6 weekly car washes, and then the connection between the hose fabric and the nozzle plastic spring a large leak. I would not recommend this product.

  262. I had two of these burst after a few weeks but my mom has had hers since June and it still works perfectly. I recommended not using the connectors that come with it. I have no idea what they are for as they fit fine to my spigot and nozzle without them. The thing doesn’t leak at all if you throw those extra pieces away immediately. They do, however need to find a tougher fabric for the outside, it snags very easily and once you get a hole in the fabric-it will burst and there’s nothing you can do to fix it- not even duct tape!

  263. I love the pocket hose because it does not get knotted-EVER, when it’s emptied it rests in a very small pile wherever you choose to leave it and the instant you turn the water on it grows to its full size. I don’t know if I’ve simply purchased a couple of “defective” hoses but I’ve had two burst on me. A hole develops in the fabric and when filled the liner full of water bulges through the hole and bursts. I think the outer fabric needs to be tougher so holes don’t develop as easily. The problem could be that it gets dragged across the patio which is made of a rough textured cement. I’m going to hate switching back to a regular hose next spring but at $20 a pop I can afford to keep replacing it every 3 or 4 weeks.

  264. My gift blew up in center of the hose too. I am seeing these hoses in our trash bins at our local dump. Obviously, not tested before going to market. Great concept but very poor materials. Would not recommend or waste $20.00 again. Very much misrepresented product. It appears there is no quality control on Chinese made products and I find plastics are showing up without the PET seal of safety as well. Very sad indeed, this country is accepting such shoddy products and no jobs for quality manufacturing in the country that once was. Landfills full of toxic products going into the water table as well with all these throw away products.

  265. Same story as other suckers. Two Pocket Hoses. Two weeks use. Both spew water from large center hose leaks. No means of repair Great idea. Very poor, useless and relatively expensive product pushed by scam level advertisement. I blame myself for believing in such a scam produced by national level TV who took in advertising money with no testing of the product. Those advertising such a useless product should be responsible for the warranty.

  266. These hoses SUCK!!!! I went through 4 of them in 3.5 months, luckily I kept my receipts. My Home Depot and Walmart stores stopped stocking them, now they give store credits. Save your money and buy conventional hoses.

  267. Bought 3 hoses – 2 50ft and 1 25ft. They all blew out at the connection of the water source. Please fix this problem. Would be happy to buy new ones if they can be trusted. Now what do I do with the ones that are broke? Walmart will not take them back without a receipt. The idea is great!

  268. It’s a wonderful product if used properly. Have a sufficient number of people available to keep the hose from touching the ground when using. Otherwise the outer surface is easily frayed and will spring leaks.

    Worthless product!!!

  269. Recently, I purchased the 50′ Pocket Hose and was really excited about its performance and ease of use. It worked quite well for the first ten uses, however, that, unfortunately, is all I got. The hose sprung a leak just about in the center and that was the end of that. Since there’s no way of repairing it, I threw it in the trash. It was an expensive lesson since I got so few uses. The concept is good but the material leaves something to be desired.

    • I believe these are very bad hoses I have bought 2 of them they are very new and leak very badly they are not what they say they are. I bought these at Walmart No I didn’t keep my receipt which I should of because I liked the way they stretched they should be banned and government they should shut them down. If you leave the water running for just a short time not using it they will blow up at the connection of water source. You had a good idea but you must engineer them better. I didn’t like hauling the regular 100′ hose around trying to reel it back in. Andrew

      • This is me again coastie9608@att.net Andrew I bought a Xhose which I bought from Taylor Gifts, it was the Blue one, it was my first hose I bought before buying the pocket hoses, I threw it away after 3wks. and notified Taylor gifts have not heard from them. I usually buy a lot of items from them the cost was $49.95 plus s&h 75′. The idea is good but needs more engineering done with it, that is why the founder of XHose has brass fittings on his new hose, haven’t tried yet at $29.95 plus s&h but that is for 25′ I need 75′ that is too much money, The Idea is their but too many flaws. Do not know the MFG or founder yet on either the Pocket or XHose, haven’t tried the Dark Green, Yellow, Orange hose yet do not look ,like I will. Andrew

    • That’s it exactly! If they would improve the durability of the outer fabric this Pocket hose would be genius! and stop including connectors, they’re unnecessary and they diminish the hose’s function. With connectors hose leaks from both ends, without connectors no leak whatsoever.

  270. Every single hose springs a leak. Keep returning it to store where purchased; keep getting a new one because of its convenience. Company needs to fix problem.

  271. I threw one of my old fashioned hoses away and thankfully kept the other one. Both my pocket hoses are busted and, of course, I have no receipt. They were given to me as a gift. Good concept, bad product.

  272. I thought the 4th time would be a charm. All 4 have blown a hole in the hose. I purchased them at Wal-Mart. They have exchanged them. Today I will take back the 4th and ask for a store credit. Learned after the 1st one to keep my receipt.

  273. Wow, wish I would have read all these reviews first. Piece of CRAP! used it maybe 6 or 7 times, then a big bubble appeared and exploded, there’s a 8″ gap in the hose right in the middle. Shit like this should not be allowed to be sold. It has a 10 year warranty? Try their website and find how to collect on that! Richard Karn should be embarrassed to be a part of this product.



  275. I had a pocket hose for 2 weeks. I used it to water plants on my patio. I turned off the supply faucet after every use, did not step on the hose, etc. two days ago I was watering my potted plants, KABLOOWY now I have two short useless hoses. I wasted my money. JUNK! I bought it at CVS.

  276. I am really disappointed in the Pocket Hose, the first one I used blew a hole on the second use. Now I have two more and am afraid to use them! I want all my money back, what a piece of junk!

  277. I thought this would be the best hose I had ever used. As an elderly person it offered everything I would need to water plants on my patio & porch. I kept it out of the sun and took very good care of it. I am so disappointed in this product.


    I purchased mine at Bed Bath & Beyond and have never bought an item there that was such a horrible scam. One lasted a couple months and the other is going back to store tomorrow. I had told everybody how great it was the first time I used it and now feel I have been totally ripped off.

    • wish I had read these reviews before I purchased 2 of them. used no more than 3 or 4 times and turned on today to get water. leaking profusely at both black connectors on both hoses. were kept under my deck up off the ground in a clean, dry place. not sure what happened, except they were just made cheap. really disappointed. maybe someone will actually make one that was meant to be used….

  278. Have used pocket hose fantastic this year when I used it again hose frayed & snapped & got horrible wet not happy, shit product, not what it’s made out to be.

  279. I bought 6 of the “As Seen On TV” green pocket hoses from Bed, Bath, & Beyond because I’m almost 69 y/o and thought they would be great instead of hauling around the usual heavy garden hoses. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of donating all my regular hoses and reels to the Salvation Army. One of the hoses exploded within a few weeks. The others still work but the black plastic connectors leak terribly, especially the little valve that controls the water flow! When I water the 3 window boxes along my back patio, I’m wet, my clothes get wet, and the patio is wet! What a waste of money!

  280. Pocket hose is a big pice of Sh!t. I bought 2 and they failed within 3 uses. Unfortunately Telebrands will make a fortune before people wise up.

  281. I purchased 2 of the 50′ pocket hoses at the start of gardening season. I loved them because they were light and easy to handle. I used them to water my flowers in my front yard, so they were not stretched at all, there was plenty of hose to reach all my beds. Tonight I went to water the flowers so I got the hose out of the milk crate I store it in, turned the water on, and proceeded to go to my flower bed. I got halfway to the flower bed and the hose bursts up by the connector to the sprayer. Made me really mad plus got me all wet. I am really disappointed in these. Save your money.

  282. Horrible product…it leaks..the turn on off piece broke and then hose exploded…taking back to store for refund…$20 wasted…the manufacture and designer should be ashamed of scamming the public beautifully…

    Shame on them….

  283. I have a pocket hose that I am very satisfied with. The problem is, even though it is 50 ft. after expansion it is still not long enough to go from my faucet to the front of my house. I have just purchased another one, but nowhere does it tell me that the hoses can be connected. I would like to know this before I take it out of the package so I can return the second one it they do not connect.

  284. What a joke. I just tried to use my pocket hose for the second time and the thing grew two bubbles and exploded! What a waste of money. I will definitely go back to a regular garden hose.

  285. Pocket hose is a piece of crap. After leaving it connected to the house for a week, it has turned into a sieve and leaks along it’s entire length. Do not waste your money on this product.

  286. I keep reading reviews and I don’t understand how someone could purposely scam the public in this manner. But then I remembered Bernie Madoff and how devoid of a conscience he is and it’s easier to understand. Don’t test it for 6 months….we have too much money invested…..get it out to the public and let them worry about it. Modern day snake oil salesmen.

  287. Bought a 25′ hose at Walgreens. Seemed to work well….light, much easier to move than old fashion hose. So good I order 2-100′ online. Wish I had waited. The first hose burst before the others got here. One of those burst and the other on is leaking and could go any time. It’s a great idea..just not well thought out or constructed. I’m 78 yo and hauling around the old hoses was tiresome and wheeling them in was harder yet. So I was very pleased
    ……..until they started blowing up. Thankfully I didn’t toss the old ones. I’ll use the last pocket hose until it blows a hole because as I said…..it’s a great idea. Just cheaply made…SHAME ON YOU.

  288. I have bought three of these hose’s and thought they were great until one of them exploded and the other two ripped off at the faucet. I feel like I have been ripped of and think there should be some kind of reimbursement for at least one. All my friends have had thee same problem and are very dissatisfied as am I.

  289. Bought two 50′ pocket hoses this summer, one blew last week, the other one a few minutes ago, bought 2 for my mom, hers had popped too. I really liked them too, but will not buy anymore now until they perfect it better.

  290. Both of these hoses have exploded and the 3rd one broke when I dropped the hose and the connector broke. These are cheap and I wonder why this company has not been looked into for advertising a terribly inferior product. Shame of them!!! JUNK, Junk, Junk

  291. I sure wish I had waited and read some reviews before I wasted my over $60 on 3 of them . Leaky, leaky, leaky at both ends and throughout the body of the hose. I am sure glad that I didn’t throw out my old heavy, dependable hoses. What a wast of money and a complete rip off.

  292. Great idea, very bad manufacturing. Bought two 100 foot hoses, one for mom and dad and one for myself, neither one of them lasted more than a couple of months.

    • I agree. I have 2 and both leak or blew out.. The leaking fittings can be correct by attaching a good brass end of another hose to it and tightening with pliers. this re-threads the plastic ends. I love the way it handles but a couple of weeks use for ANY price is ridiculous.

  293. I purchased and received two 50ft sections of Pocket Hose in May 2013. In early August, after less than a dozen uses, one of the two sections broke the outer cover and the inner plastic section burst. I called the customer service number provided and after one garbled phone contact did finally talk to customer representative, Zach Carter. He was very polite, took my information, told me the hose would be replaced, and gave me a confirmation replacement number. ( I did have doubts ) I have now received in less than three weeks a 50ft replacement hose with no additional charges. I am very pleased with the 100% guarantee and now hope the original defect was a rarity as I am well pleased with the concept and working of the Pocket Hose.

  294. Bought 1-25 ft hose and 2-50 ft pocket hoses in June from local hardware store. The 50 ft hoses leaked at the connectors within the first two uses and the 25 ft hose popped after 2 months. Seems like a good product idea but poor construction and no refund on the product.

  295. I bought a 25′ hose very light very nice so I bought a 2nd 25′ hose. My sister-in-law bought me a 25′ hose for my birthday (didn’t know I had one). With these lightweight hoses I could drag around my yard ease. So I gave away my old bulky hose (That was in almost new condition I had purchased them last year). On Monday (8-26-13) my wife went to water plants she had in pots on the front porch, and pow the hose busted below the connection. Today (8-29-13) I started to water my garden and pow another hose exploded below the connector. I forgot about the shutoff on the third hose that had a pin size hole in it that squirted water everywhere. I guess what I’m trying to say is this product IS A PIECE OF JUNK. I would advise everyone to not purchase this product. I would have been better off if I threw my money out the window. Now I have to go buy 75′ of bulky hose.

  296. the pocket hose ===sucks I went through {4} already cause they get holes in the hose and the plastic connectors they crack ==I would never buy another one And I want a discount ===SO PEOPLE DON’T BUY, it is a rip OFF!!

  297. I bought two of these at Walgreens and both of them blew out and did not even last a full month. How can I get my money back if I don’t have the box?

  298. I bought 2 hoses for my yard and loved that they were light weight and easy to hide. But after about 2 weeks the part that you open to let the water through busted off and flew to who knows where and the other hose doesn’t work now. The water doesn’t flow through the hose. it goes all around the outside of it. So I have wasted 40 bucks on these hoses. I love the idea and very disappointed in how they turned out. I wish they were made better. I hate big ugly hoses and hose reels and I really thought this was the answer.

  299. I bought one and was really excited about it. So light and easy to use. Talked my 2 sister into buying one. All three broke. So disappointed!

  300. What a worthless piece of junk. I’ve returned three hoses already….They keep sending me replacements and twice the replacements have either sprung a leak or the cheap plastic connectors break. This product needs to be banned, now!!


  302. My wife purchased two 50′ pocket hose for me as a gift for Father’s Day. I used it once, drained and put away. The second time I used the hoses, they exploded. The outer cover has frayed and the inner hose is quite thin. Lesson learned and $40.00 wasted. As Seen On TV products with their slick advertising are made to sell, not to use nor last. Save your money. Buy a good quality product made in America and it will usually last much longer. I will never purchase another “As Seen On TV” Product.

  303. I have had my pocket hose for less than two months and like very many other people, mine blew up!! I agree that the concept is great but need better material!!

  304. This is a piece of junk. The X hose is a same piece junk as the pocket hose don’t waste your money. I am very disappointed.

    • I bought two 50′ hoses…..to use in my work as an air conditioner service technician. I knew to be gentle with them…..and so after each use…..I carefully drained them to their smaller size….and then gently fed them down into a footlocker that I had meticulously lined with 1″ thick foam rubber, and a layer of velvet cloth on top of that [separate foot lockers for each hose]. I then also devised a system in my work van so each locker would securely hang by four strong-but-elastic rubber straps….I didn’t want road vibrations damaging them! LMAO!! Just kidding…..I knew to be gentle with them, but I knew I was taking a chance in buying them because leaks cannot be repaired like can easily be done with normal hoses. Third use with each hose, and the both burst. I’ve just read here about the x hose….its either that or back to the same ole same ole.

  305. I was so excited to have a hose that I could handle. I used it four or five times and it burst. I had purchased it at Walmart so I asked a lady there if she was aware of any complaints. Her response was that she had also purchased the same product with the same unfavorable result. She then purchased the X Hose on the Internet because of the warranty. That is what I am planning to do. Very Disappointed!

  306. Unfortunately, I got the “pocket hose” confused with the “xhose”. My friend recommended the xhose to me, but I got confused and bought this cheap*** burst after two uses hose. Fighting with Bed Bath and Beyond to get my money back! Shocking that this hose hasn’t been taken off the market and the manufactures sued. Ok maybe suing is a bit extreme, but if you could have seen my 80 yr old mother soaked to the bone after the hose burst, Literally, in her face because she was looking at the bubble that was growing. And you were laughing so hard, that she took you out of her will, you would understand. Anyway don’t buy the pocket hose!!!

  307. Terrible! One use and now tho hose leaks to the point that no water comes out of the open end! DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

  308. I purchase this hose because I seen it on tv think it a good deal at walmart I wish I would’ve seen these reviews I wouldn’t have purchase this I use it one time and it work for a few hour I went in the house came back out later it had a hole in it and not pushing out water I call the company they told me to take it back to the store and rush me off the phone I just have to take it as a lost 50 foot hose for $19.95 it was just too good to be true. I can’t take it back after a month in a 1/2.

    • Walmart will refund your money just go to management and they will…worked for them for 5 years and they even refunded stuff that wasn’t bought at Walmart.worst that they can say is no right…good luck

  309. Great hose….bad quality! I purchased 2 hoses and the first hose lasted through 1 summer then split. The 2nd hose lasted 2 months then split. I thought it was just my hoses but after reading all theses reviews it is the product. So glad I didn’t go and buy more but will miss my hose!

  310. I brought two hoses and after a week one of them broke, burst right in the middle return product from where I purchased from got another and that one burst right at the end of the connector this product stinks cannot get money back so I will keep bringing them back and getting another one and spending money on gas thank you Mr flex hose for your product it stinks.

  311. Don’t waste your money. Within one month of buying this product it developed a hole in the fabric. I taped that hole up and two weeks later it got another hole. Fabric is not strong enough. Also the on/off valve leaked from the beginning. Would not recommend to anyone.

  312. I bought several pocket hoses for our daughter and ourselves last Christmas season. We thought it was a great idea. We started using them in June and already they are all broken at the connection. I told all my friends how great it was. Now I have to tell them this product is junk! I ordered from a TV add. Rip off!

  313. I agree that it is a great concept but the material needs to be heavier or something. Our hose started leaking after only using it a couple times and then ripped right below where the hose connects with the nozzle. We won’t buy another one:(

  314. The pocket hose is the worst buying experience I have ever had. They sent us the wrong product. When we returned the item they would not reimburse us for shipping. When you call no one can resolve the problem. Have tried for four months to resolve but it is impossible. Horrible, horrible company.

  315. Bought 2 Pocket hoses to be put together to make 50 ft. of hose. First one broke off at the connecter and then today the hose split and blew up in my face. I wrenched my hip jumping out of the way. I will wait and see how bad I am hurt. These should be taken off the market.

  316. We bought the pocket hose through publishers clearing house. It was all right the first time we used it. It did not curl back up though. The second time the nozzle broke, so we replaced that.

    The third time, hubby turned on the water and it got a bubble and burst. The whole hose just popped and shredded. This is a piece of garbage and a waste of money.

    Anything you buy from Publishers Clearing House, has a 120 day guarantee but we didn’t buy it in the summer so by the time we tried it out, it was too late. Then they also don’t pay return shipping and handling.

  317. Good concept … terrible product. First day cheep shut off valve broke. Bought replacement. Within 30 days … it started leaking from where the hose connects to the faucet. Cheaply built … don’t waste your money!

  318. Like many others we’ve purchased 4 of these hoses throughout the summer and all 4 have split one place or another. We purchased from both Walmart and Meinards. My wife loves the fact that the hoses is light weight, doesn’t get tangled but we’ve spent over $100.00 on these hoses. You need to make some changes to make this product work. I would not recommend this hose to anyone….nor will we buy another one. In fact, it would be nice to be reimbursed some of the money spent on these worthless things! If you can’t make these things last for more than a couple weeks pull them off the market and stop ripping people off!!!

    • I bought one hose and returned to the where I got it from 4 times for replacements and all blew out. I got my money back because I refuse to get another one. They are weak and do not work and not the time to keep replacing them.

  319. What a joke on a product that came with a fantastic design. Loved this hose but after four breaks, three with holes in them after only one weeks use and one where the nozzle just broke away spraying me as well as the flowers. When we walk into the store of purchase, the staff start laughing……not again they say! In one week they told us they had 75 hoses returned. Don’t waste your money.

  320. 3 hoses “BLEW OUT” in 4 months. Obviously, it was not test thoroughly or they would never have released it to the public. I see the company taking the $ and run ’cause they would go bankrupt if the stood by there warrant on all the hoses that’ve failed. Dozens of stories & even store employees are discouraging customers from buying it.

  321. This is my third hose. The first two leaked at the shut off valve. I called the Pocket Hose Mfg. Customer service, they said they said I had to return the hose where I purchased it. They did not tell me the shut off valve was defective. Here is the Pocket Hose co. answer to the problem. They now put a sticker on the product package which basically says valve defective take it off and use with out valve. What a crock, you paid for something they are telling you not to use. So instead of repairing their inventory, they have put a sticker on the product. Disgraceful and shame on them.

  322. I agree with all of the other comments. THESE HOSES ARE A PIECE OF JUNK. We bought two 50-foot ones and after using them a couple of months to water flowers (occasionally), they busted. We kept them on a hose reel in our garage when we weren’t using them so it wasn’t like they were left out in the weather. DON’T BUY THESE!!!

  323. I have now, bought 4 of these hoses and I get to use them maybe 5 times, the first one, I only used once and it busted at the seems and it wasn’t because I left the water on because I was watering the flowers at the time. So I would say for the price they are junk and not worth it

  324. I was so excited about this product….30 min after opening the box, the open/shut plastic nozzle broke off spraying everything. Unfixable. I wish I had read these reviews first.

  325. Bought one at Menards, threw everything away before I used it. Got ready to use it and the female end was cracked. I called the company and they would do NOTHING for me. DON’T BUY IT they will not stand behind their product!

  326. I bought 2 of these hoses for my yard, and just like everyone else’s complaints, the hose burst while I was using it, and both leak from the cheap plastic fittings at the top! What a waste of money!!

  327. Purchased two 50′ pocket hoses right out of the box one blow hole and the other one lasted about three week and that blow a hole. They are a piece of junk.

  328. I purchased 4 of the 50′ pocket hose just 3 weeks ago and 2 of them have already blown up. I have a large yard and had purchased 2 for each side. This last weekend my granddaughter was watering my flowers and it just exploded not 2 feet from her hand. These are very dangerous! Don’t waste your money on such a CHEAPLY made and DANGEROUS items.. I should of known that they were just too good to be true!!

    • I have purchase this item and along with the other complains the same thing happen to me. The hoses inner liner develop a hole causing me to get wet or my wife. The only thing good about this item is the warranty but not all stores give the same one. I have been back and forth to Bed Bath and Beyond about once a month to exchange this item. To me it seems that the company could fix this problem since they know there is a problem. Also it seems to me that they are false adventizing by saying this hose will not break.

  329. Total waste of money!! We hardly used it, and only 1 month after purchasing I was watering flowers and the thing exploded it scared the crap out of me. This is not safe at all. Then while looking at it, there were several holes through out the hose. Horrible!!

  330. I have bought 5 hoses and none have lasted over 60 days before blowing a hole in the main hose or leaking from the valve shut off. Great concept but poor quality.

  331. this is the fourth time i had to return my hose this time it filled like a blue water balloon and burst on my leg which left welts on my leg 4 trips back and forth to the store 8 miles away is not my way of spending my days. i called the customer service number and the man was very rude telling me to fax him a receipt and they will send me another one so here i go again traveling to find a fax machine to pay to send u a receipt i feel you should send me a new hose and stand behind your products and not put people thru this aggravation and take peoples word that we did buy this hose please respond 858 617 0089 linda jubb 26 road a audubon nj 08106 thank you wait to hear from you

  332. I purchased this hose and was filling my above ground pool when it started to swell and broke the material and blew up in my face with such force my face was red for two days. I thought perhaps I just got a bad one in the bunch so I returned it for another one AND bought a second one as I love the idea of a light weight hose. Three days later they both blew up. VERY dangerous.

  333. I purchased a pocket hose a month ago. Last week it just snapped in two – another reason not to buy junk advertised on TV.

  334. I bought a 50ft one and it worked fine until my husband put a nozzle on it that was more of a high powered spray then it developed a small leak near the top, I put my garden nozzle back on with the big holes and haven’t had any more leaks develop. I think you can only use nozzles that have large holes with pocket hose.

  335. I have bought 3 pocket hoses. With very minimal use I impress with minimal use 2 out of the three hoses have developed a hole. I am very disappointed in the hose. I was excited about the hose and the possible uses. I am very disappointed in your product. The advertised construction of these hoses is not true. They DO NOT stand up to the use of a regular hose. YES they are light weight and easy to store but the way the hose is built is poor. I have recommended this product to many friends but in the future I will let them know how poor the hose really is. Please review the real capability of this hose and make the necessary changes to make it what is advertised. For me I will not buy or recommend this product to anyone.

  336. The pocket hose SUCKS! Bought one and within a week the rubber burst at the top where it screws into the faucet. Did a switch a roo and got another one. The plastic that turns the hose off and on broke. What a piece of crap.

    • It happened to me as I attached a spray so I could water my flowers. I stepped away for a minute or two after turning on the faucet and all of a sudden I heard somewhat like it had break and turned around and saw water shooting horizontally towards the brick wall. I immediately turned off the faucet and looked what caused it and saw a tear in the rubber hose. I went shopping @ Kmart and saw it on sale. I slapped a post it note on the ad sign that wrote “don’t buy…worthless crap

  337. Total waste of money! It leaked profusely at the nozzle after less than 30 days of use. We cut the nozzle off and then it started leaking everywhere along the hose. It is a great idea but a really rotten product. Don’t buy.

  338. Just had my third hose pop this one broke in half when it blew the first broke at the connector the second blew a hole in it waste of money.

  339. This thing is JUNK!!! My parents bought one and part of it swelled up like a sausage and BURST !! Thank god they weren’t hurt. I bought one and within 2 weeks the plastic switch (to turn on and off) broke. About 2 months later, it sprung a huge leak at the spigot. Hard to believe that TWO of these hoses didn’t last more than a few months!!! Don’t waste your money!!

  340. I bought 2 of these for my house. well I have taken 3 back to Walmart since. They break at the connection of the sprayer. Walmart told me that 33% are returned for defects. Great product keep your receipt because 30 days or less later you will return a broken hose.

  341. Waste of money I have bought 3 and due to returns have had 8 so far. Now two more will have to be replaced. After using these three for about 2 months two have come apart. One the cloth has rotted. Waste, waste waste.

  342. This hose is a scam. We bought one we were using it on our yard for the second time low-pressure on the water and the hose popped what a piece of junk waste of time I will never ever understand why it’s okay to advertise lies on American TV. And shame on any retailer that sells this product you are helping lie to the American people this product does not work and does not deserve any endorsement from anyone.

  343. This hose should be called exploding hose not expanding hose! After only three uses it literally exploded!! a friend at work had the same problem. Don’t waste your money!!

  344. We thought this looked great on TV, worked OK for 2 months. Now we are having massive failures of the inside part and there is nothing available to repair them. A total waste of money, false advertising. Save your money, don’t buy these.

  345. I bought two 75 foot pocket hoses about 4 months ago. They were great for a while. Now both are experiencing massive failures of the inside blue portion, there’s nothing that size to repair them, a total waste of my money.

  346. The concept of this hose is great only if it worked. The first Pocket Hose I bought had a pin hole in the plastic nozzle that squirted water out. I took it back to Walmart for an exchange. I got another one and it leaked all around the plastic nozzle again I returned it for an exchange, they say the third time is a charm well believe me it is not. The third Pocket Hose leaked at the base of the nozzle also so that will be the last time I try the Pocket Hose. They need to have all those hoses recalled.

  347. I bought the hose in May, based on all the good reviews by local tv people. It worked well until it just burst at the faucet, & I didn’t have it on high! Very disappointed!!

  348. My 86 year old dad bought one of these. It had a leak at the point the hose connects with the coupler. He took it back and got another. Same problem. Then, he got a refund. This morning, the Today Show did a feature on these “as seen on TV” products. Their hose didn’t leak…as far as we know.

  349. Received pocket hose for Mothers Day gift. Use two times, now the hose is leaking and fabric full of holes. Not a good product at all.

  350. Thanks for all your reviews! I was tempted to buy one but wanted to research a little first. Glad I did!!
    I will not be buying this product until I see consistent good reviews.

  351. What can you expect from a product made in a foreign country instead of the USA where there are higher standards.

  352. My complaint is the same as all of the others. I hung it outside on a wrack near the faucet. The hose developed a leak and would not reach the 50′ I had been accustomed to. As I am disabled, this is the only way I can water my yard. My other hoses are way to heavy for me. Very disappointing; I thought this is one thing I can still do. If it worked as advertised, it would be great for people with physical disabilities. Somebody out there, maybe a civil engineer could perfect this hose so people like me could feel useful.

  353. I purchased three of these–each one leaked at the female coupling end–threw them all away—they are a joke–do not buy.

  354. Apparently the pocket hose they used for the commercial is NOT the pocket hose they sell!! I don’t think I’d go back and buy a third, fourth, etc. I, for one, am sooo skeptical of most gadgets I see on tv. How any company would waste time and money marketing something they haven’t thoroughly tested is beyond me. I guess they are banking on people just tossing it in the trash, rather than demanding a refund. Must be making money for someone. They keep on doing it and people keep on falling for it. What’s disappointing is the way celebrities will agree to be a part of rip-offs like this!

    • I bought a pocket hose for my house from walmart about 2 weeks ago. Today the thing blew out , about 18 in from the faucet and burst out through the material. I was enjoying the ease of use. , but it burst anyway. DO NOT BUY!!!! .

  355. I bought a pockethose for my house from Home Depot about 1 month ago. Today the plastic inside the hose, very thin plastic, broke at the faucet and burst out through the material. This was a big waste of money…back to the real kind of hose. The idea is terrific and I was enjoying the ease of use. I kept it in the shade, put a nozzle on it, emptied it each time all per instructions placed carefully on the hose, but it burst anyway. DO NOT BUY!!!! Somewhere there is a guarantee but I have yet to find out where.

  356. Bought 2 of the pocket hoses ,lasted for about 4 themes I used them,one blew out while my wife was watering her plants, she got soaked, I went out and took the 2 50 ft hoses apart and while I was watering her plants the other hose blew out at the connection at the house. Bought theses at wal-mart. Hope to get my money back. This is a don’t buy item.


      • I love my flexable hose! BUT, we also got a leak, ours is in the middle. husband cut it to see if he could fix it, now we don’t know what to do.. only had it a month or so, bought online.

  357. The pocket hose by far is the worst product I’ve encountered so far. I bought 2 hoses at Walmart. The first one couldn’t handle normal water pressure and blew up like a balloon and then popped. The second one also came apart at the nozzle (2 holes). I can’t believe a product like this was not tested thoroughly. It was a good idea, but the quality is a 0. I threw one of the hoses in the garbage and the other I took back to Walmart. They graciously gave me credit for one hose. I’m afraid there might be a class action suit very soon unless this product is pulled from the shelves.

    • Absolutely the worst product I have ever bought. Didn’t last a month, pinholes in the valve, split and explodes, split by the hose bib, just a terrible product. We bought three of these rip offs. A complete waste of money.

  358. I loved this hose until it sprung a leak. Took it back to get a replacement at Walmart without a receipt since it was a “mother’s day” gift I asked for. First time I used the new one, it did the same. Off to take it back, just hope Walmart will give money back without receipt.

  359. DO NO BUY. A total waste of your money. I purchased two 25 foot hoses. I had to use teflon tape to prevent leaking. It required a lot. I tried the hose shut off. It blew right off the hose. I then used just the nozzle shut off after I applied more teflon tape. Two weeks later one hose blew a hole in it. I did not have the sales slip so I just threw it away and purchased another. That one lasted two weeks. It blew apart. The company would do nothing to help me because I did not have the sales slip. This product is a WASTE of your money.

  360. Glad to see I’m not the only one that has had problems with this hose. bought two of them in about 2 months and both blew up right under the valve. Very awesome idea cause I really cant stand having a hose kink up all the time when trying to use the thing, but this hose is a piece of crap by far.

  361. Enjoyed the Pocket Hose perfectly as advertised for about 3 months. Then was watering one day, hose uncurled but causally laying, not stretched, when “POP” the hose burst completely off, right behind the plastic connector to the spigot. $19.95 + tax for roughly 90 days usage?

  362. The first hose began leaking within the first week. Returned for another 5′ hose. This one lasted about 6 weeks. Burst at the nozzle end. Pocket hose is a good idea, but requires a lot more quality improvement before I’d buy another. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!

  363. I purchased the hose at Daytona flea market at Items sold on TV tent. The video playing claimed it had a ten year warranty. We thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. Well when we got home to ct. and turned it on it didn’t last ten seconds never mine ten years. It blew up like a rubber and exploded. Junk. Save your money.

  364. The pocket hose is nothing but a piece of junk; a total sham! Bet the creator is a Democrat as you come across just the Obama and his administration – full of hot air and nothing but lies, lies, lies.

  365. I purchased two 75 foot pocket hoses. I also purchased the extra strength outer skin to ensure I would have the best they have to offer. I bought them about two months ago. Both of them came apart at the female coupling end. The rest of the hose is fine but I have no way to put another coupling on. So I wasted $55 on two hoses. Unfotunately I do not have my receipts so I cannot get my money back. I certainly will never buy another one these hose again.

  366. Haven’t even had my hose for a month and the end just blew off!! Very disappointed in this product,I bought 2…what a waste of money!!!!

  367. Biggest piece of crap I have ever bought, blew a hole in it on the 4th time using it.. AND yes I shut off valve on my house and hose, then drained.. I want my $20 back.. This product needs to be removed from store shelves more and more people are going to be scammed out of there money…

  368. My mother bought two of the 50 ft hoses and I bought one and all have leaked at the spigot and 2 so far have blew out not just the plastic insides but the cloth material also none had been used more than a few times. A real disappointment, especially for the cost.

  369. I regret not researching reviews from other consumers on the Pocket Hose. Once again another failed “As seen on TV” Product

  370. I regret not looking further into the reviews on this item.The Pocket Hose is yet another Failed Product of “As Seen On TV”

  371. I also bought this hose. First one leaked only after being used about one month, bought second and the same thing happened to it. Both leak around the spigot. Love the idea of this product. So easy to use, light, no kinks. Can’t someone make this product with different(stronger) material?

  372. I purchased a 50ft hose about 6 weeks ago. I loved the light weight and ease of use to water the small flower bed and hanging pots in front of my apartment. Today, it blew up in my face right at the faucet. The valve was not shut and I don’t have much water pressure. My daughter bought one about 1 month ago, and after two uses it split right in the middle. She has even less water pressure than I do. I am very disappointed that such a great idea has gone so badly. Of course I don’t have the receipt, so cant get a refund or exchange for another in the hopes the new one would not have that issue. Being on social security, money is too tight to be wasting it on products that fail so quickly.

  373. I bought 2 of your 50′ hoses from Walmart a couple of months ago. One of them worked fine for 1 month before it started leaking real bad at the spigot connection. I NEVER stretched the hose out all the way or when I hung it back up. The second worked for about 2-mos. only because we got so much rain the 2nd month and I didn’t have to water my plants. Tonight was the first time that I used it since all of the rain and it’s doing the same thing as the first one did. This was a waste of $40.00 + tax!! When I first got them I was bragging about them to my friends, but now I’m going to tell them not to buy them. I’ve already called my mother and told her to return hers if she still has her receipt since she hasn’t taken it out of the package yet. Since I no longer have my receipt or the packages I just lost my money. I’m very disappointed in the product!

    • I had the same experience. Two hoses, a 25ft and a 75 ft. Did not use sprayers or nozzles. One blew in the middle on fifth use, the other sprung a large leak at the spigot connection. At $40 for the 75 foot (includes S & H, I cannot afford to replace it. They only have a 30 day guarantee, and I didn’t need to use it that much because of the Oregon rain. I am very disappointed.


  375. I bought a 50 foot hose at walmart and then another of the same at walmart when the first one failed at the nozzle as Randy Martin describes….I will add the following information….This product is actually a bigger piece of crap than Mr Martin states….there is not a superlative in our language to describe how much of a piece of crap this hose is….They are useless.

  376. I bought one, and after the shut off tab broke and leaked on the first use I bought a second one thinking maybe I just got a bad one. The second one was used approx. 5 times before it burst at the nozzle hook up point. Im happy actually to read all of the bad reviews and see ALL of them appear to be bad, and not just my bad luck. What a shame, good idea, poor design…. This will go back to the store, they will not be keeping my money for a product that is worthless.

  377. Though about buying one for light watering, won’t now. My question is why are there so many people buying 3,4,5 one review even said 7 if they fail so often. Who’s dumber the manufacturer or the buyer?

    • My mom and sister each bought one — sister’s failed and she returned it. Mother returned it without testing. But I WANTED to try it, so bought only one. We have four spigots outside, though, and that might answer your question as to why people would buy several. If not for the family experience with the pocket hose, I would have probably bought four. I read the messages, and it did not seem they were serial purchase … they were bought at the same time.
      Mine blew the sprayer off the first time we turned it on! My husband is handy and was able to get it to working condition, and it lasted five weeks, I would say. I have arthritis in my wrists and fingers, so I loved the light weight and maneuverability. Sadly, we turned it on the other evening, and water just gushed from below the sprayer, a major blowout. Someone said it right … the manufacturers and marketers made a big fat bundle on us. A great idea that they didn’t make property — but they marketed the heck out of it, didn’t they?

  378. I am very disappointed in the pocket hose I purchase two of them from sears had them for about one month used one of them every other day to clean my bird bath disconnected it each time and kept it in the garage then it started to leak around the connector to the hose got the second one out used it two times and it does the same thing no receipt so I’m out $40. I really liked how easy it was to handle. Someone sure made a bundle off of a lot of people.

  379. This is a very dangerous product!! my mom had one blow up in her face.. Sounded like a bomb going off. She has sent in pictures of the hose. She ended up with a severe migraine all day. This is what you get when you buy something from CHINA!!!

  380. I am thoroughly disgusted that this hose blew open after 1 month. I purchased 4 of these hoses and 3 have ripped open, What a pure waste of money this company should be reimbursing everyones money.

  381. Buyer beware, initially I loved it. I used it about 5 times just to water my flower pots on the front porch. One day while using, a huge balloon suddenly formed at the end of the hose. It burst right in my face!!! Buyer beware!!! This should be taken off the market, they are stealing from people!!!

  382. I was so excited to finally get one..had it for less than a week and it’s going back…I was watering the garden and heard something; looked down and it looked like a balloon was blowing up, then POP. This is disappointing..I loved the idea of getting rid of my bulky hose, now what?

  383. We have purchased 7 of these hoses all have burst. Sent back 4 they too have burst. Makes one feel like the sucker of the year.

  384. Purchased 4 of the 75 foot hoses,, gave one to my son and one to my daughter, have two at the house and one after after being used around 5 times has broken at the plastic fitting where the hose connects to the threaded section that goes on the faucet,, very cheaply made, not worth the money, do not recommend purchasing one of these hoses.

    • I bought 5 hoses in about 4 about 4 months time and all hoses either leaked at the nozzle or burst open.
      I think they should be taken off the market and show a recall.
      They do not last more than 1 month.
      I lost about $30.00 buying this fraud type hose.

    • I am very disappointed in the hose. After about 4 uses it leaks around spigot connection. Have no receipt from Walmart. How do I get my money back

  385. My pocket hose is about 2 months old. Today, after turning on the water, it burst right at the fauset connection. My water pressure is not high. I like the product. In fact, I have two of them. Do you have a model that is reinforced?

  386. I bought 4 of these hoses. I loved them BUT so far 3 have burst… I have one left and don’t expect it to last much longer. Going back to my old style hoses…

  387. I bought 2 of the pocket hose 50ft. LOVED them however they didn’t last long at all. Both were only about 2 months old and neither were used often. I almost threw away my other hoses because I thought these going to be the hoses I would stick with. As many of the other consumers mine broke. The first one popped while I was using so it wasn’t like I was building pressure in the hose and the second one broke at the nozzle. The little on/off piece broke off and water started shooting right out of it. Both ended up in the trash. Disappointed with the product and do not recommend.

    • This is exactly what happened to me. I only used it about 5 times. Loved it at first but the on/off piece broke. I put my old nozzle on it. It worked for 2 more times and the connection by the faucet exploded and I did not even have the water on all the way and had the nozzle in the open position. I am glad I did not throw my old hose away. This was a good idea but poorly constructed. I will not recommend this hose to anyone.

  388. I bought this hose at CVS and at first loved it because it is so light. Mine has now broken off at the nozzle, they need to go back to the drawing board on this one.

  389. I received this as a gift from my sister about a month ago, and today it started leaking in the middle from a pin size hole. Do not recommend.




  391. My daughter bought a pocket hose for me as a Father’s day present. I used it three times before it burst in the middle. This product should be removed from the market. It is a total scam to sell junk like this to the consumer.

  392. To whomsoever it may concern, I had bought your hose about a month ago. I still have the receipt & it burst. It was hooked up to the faucet & when I turned it on it burst. Can I return it? I will mail it back with the receipt.

    Thank you

  393. I purchased 2 of the 50 ft. pocket hoses at walmart about 2 months ago. I only used the hoses 3 or 4 times when the end pf one came loose started leaking and the other popped like a baloon. If I can find my receipt, I will take them back and demand my money back. This company should be held liable for false advertising!

  394. I purchased two of the 50 foot hoses for $19.99 each and both are a piece of junk!. One came apart at the connector and the other popped like a balloon! I purchased them from a store and cannot find my receipt so now I am out $40.00 and am very upset about it! I will never purchase anything that says “as seen on TV” and will never recommend anyone to do so either!

  395. I purchased two 100 ft pocket hose from the company . Both popped . can I calm on warranty . I bought them in Feb. 08,13 . for $65.97 . of course in Nebraska we waited to use them . telebrands corp. I have my canceled check.

      • Called the company . They were polite and said “replacement will come in 4 to 6 weeks. The concept is great. I used the shut off valve, it builds up pressure then popped. Knowing this will only improve my purchase.

      • Never had gotten around to reviews, just locked on to the ‘good idea’ part. My tiny wife is a real freak with the greenery. Same experiences as everyone else, BUT every time I called, they sent a new one, and after 6-8 replacements, they refunded my total purchase price.

  396. What a waste of money. The coupling at the spicket started spewing water everwhere when I shut the nozzel off at the other end to go and turn off the water. Save your money.

  397. I have to return my pocket hose for the fourth time. I spent more on gas than the worth of this very unreliable product. This is the last time because I am getting a normal hose.

  398. I am so thrilled I stumbled upon your site. I really found you by mistake, while I was browsing on Yahoo for something else. Anyways I am here now and would just like to say thank you for a useful post and an all round enjoyable blog. (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read through it all at the moment, but I have added your website to my favorites, so when I have time I will be back to read more. Please do keep up the awesome job!

  399. Do not waste ure money with this product, Have purchased 2 of them and both have had problems with the male end when attaching sprayer, the black coupling come apart from the hose. Someone needs to redesign the connecting ends of this hose.

    • I HAVE PURCHASED 7 OF THESE ‘GREEN THINGS” gave 1 to a neighbor & have returned 5 for replacement. 1 of the replaced hoses BURST about center. 2 of the replaced and all the returned ones BURST at the connections. I have not heard from the neighbor ? The ones I have left are still in the containers they came in. My wife refuses to try another one(she has been soaked twice, already!) Was a great idea. CAN YOU SAY “QUALITY CONTROL” ?! Guess they all have to go back !

  400. Last month I purchased (4) 50′ hoses = over $100.00 with tax! ALL (4) leak at the connector AND at the “on/off” switch! Add to that, (2) out of the (4) POPPED like a balloon! I gave away over 200′ of GOOD hose with an automatic hose winder…..guess I’m the LOSER on this deal! What are you going to do about this mess??

  401. I would not recommend this hose. I have bought 4 now and they don’t last very long. I bought one 2 days ago and it already has 2 leaks in it. For $20 a hose, they don’t last very long. Very disappointed in them as I thought it was going to be great to water my flowers with every night.

  402. First I bought the 25 ft. pocket hose. I was so impressed I bought two 50 ft. hoses, for the front and backyards. I was delighted with the ease and convenience of them. However, after a very short time they all began to leak where the hoses were inserted in the plastic pieces. Now I am faced with trying to return them (I did not save the boxes or the sales slips). I believe they came with a lifetime guarantee so will try to return them. One was bought at Home Depot, one at Grocery Outlet and one at Walmart. Will see how it goes when I try to return them. I will be happy with at least a store credit. Time will tell. Meanwhile, I have hooked up my old fashioned hoses and struggle with them each time I use them. Looking forward to improvements in the “pocket hoses” in the very near future.

  403. My advice is to not buy them. The plastic fittings do not hold up. A total waste of $40. I made the mistake of buying 2. Will be posting on facebook to all my friends not to buy.

  404. I bought the Pocket Hose at the local big box retailer. I attached it to my faucet and used it the next day. It worked just as they said it would! I was so happy with my purchase… until I used it for the second time. Within seconds of turning the tap on, only to about half power, a hole in the hose burst open! When I returned it to the store for a refund, the clerk said they’d had a lot of them returned. Now I know.

  405. I bought 4 of these hoses and within a week they all leaked and the ends broke. I looked everywhere on the containers and there is no form of a warranty at all. They are junk, the concept is wonderful…they just don’t hold up to any kind of use!

  406. I bought 2 of the 50 ft. hoses at Walmart. I was very happy with it at first and bought a third. Then one by one, they failed. One started leaking all along the hose. Tonight while watering the garden, a large bubble formed and burst open splitting the fitting right of the hose. I still have one that I am keeping in the garage and taking out as needed but I don’t hold out much hope of finishing out the season. I would not recommend this product and am annoyed that I spent so much money on hoses that I will now have to replace.

  407. Got this Pocket hose 3 months, ago used it 3-4 times. It sprung a leek 4 inches down from the spigot. Don’t waste your money!!! junk!

  408. Bought two of these things, 50 ft. one still works but I have only used it a couple of times. The other one leaks like crazy. I could have spent the money on a good hose. This is a rip off. I have a hard time carry a big rubber hose but at least I would have gotten my moneys worth.

  409. I purchased 2 of these 50ft hose, one from Walmart and one from Walgreens. After using them a couple of times they both blew up, Yes, BLEW UP!! Exploded!!! This is dangerous to use and I would NEVER recommend anyone to purchase these hose!! Did not keep the receipts so was unable to return the items!!! So, I lost money by purchasing these!

  410. What a scam! I bought two of the 25′ hoses for use on the dock when cleaning my boat. Sounded like such a great idea! First hose completely ripped away from the cheapo plastic fitting (which leaked continuously until it did blow apart!), and the second hose had so many leaks on first time use that it was like trying to get water to flow through a tube of window screen! Neither hose lasted more than that first initial use. Terrible product. Not worth the shipping costs, yet alone the product costs!

  411. This pocket hose is a piece of crap. I was getting ready to clean my birdbath and the damn thing exploded right in my face. Would not buy another one and I am telling people not to buy it. What a rip off.

  412. I too bought 4 of these at walmart… 19.99 each. Within a month and a half three of them have been thrown in the dump… they started leaking at the connection and one even unraveled. The idea is great but the product is not good… since I didn’t have the receipt any longer I just chaulked it up to a good idea gone bad…

  413. Bought 4 of them in January at CVS. Did not start using them until May. Two of them blew up recently. Called the Company was told to go back to CVS. Went to CVS was told to go to the Manufacturer. Getting the royal run around. Maybe it’s time to start calling the Attorney General Offices and complaining. Maybe a class action lawsuit will help too. Waiting to see when the last two will blow up.

  414. I have bought 3 of this so called wonderful hose, $19.99 each!! They came loose tore all the way through. They are crap!! I would like to get my money back!!!! I would like to tell people if they are thinking about buying one…don’t. You will be wasting your money!!!

  415. This hose is the biggest piece of crap that I have ever purchased. I took the two I bought back three times because I was so entranced at how easy it was to use. But it leaks. The last one I used today bubbled up and exploded water all in my face. The attachments should be metal. It is not even heavy duty enough to allow a good stream of water to flow. These are disposable. Someone is making a killing on this crappy product. The concept behind it is great, but the materials used to manufacture are lousy. Will be returning two more tomorrow for a full refund!!!

  416. I work at a returns desk and I see these come all the time. The concept is good, but the product is not worth the time or money! Fix the problems before you loose ALL your customers please! I don’t recommend this product for anyone!

  417. Biggest piece of crap I have ever been ripped off for. I bought 2 within 3 weeks one blew apart in the middle and the other is leaking in 2 places. Do not waste your money on this product.

  418. I went through 2 of them in 2 months. Holes and rips up to 4in. long happened. They are junk-do not buy!!!

  419. I received pocket hose for my birthday in May and it broke in half while watering my flowers last night, gave it a tug and it snapped. What a piece of crap, waste of money…another product manufactured in china!

  420. I am so angry!!! These hoses are dangerous! They should be banded from all stores & advertisements! My mother bought her two, and me two. All four hoses exploded! YES! BLEW UP!!! The last one blew up in my face! Scared me to death! If it would have been a child, it could have really hurt them bad!!! TAKE THESE HOSES and get them off the market now! I have signs made to take to store & put up on the danger of these hoses! I have already been in the stores seeing people looking at them and telling them, they are not safe! You are cheating people out of their money, and putting them in danger! Stop before someone looses an eye! You got $80.00 of our money for nothing, and gas, & having to go buy new hoses!!!

  421. This is a total waste of money! Mine was damaged on arrival, the stop valve was leaking, and the second time I tried to use it, there were leaks coming from everywhere! Its a piece of junk!

  422. This is the worst hose I have ever purchased. Second time I turned the hose on it started spraying out about two feet from the end. I threw the package and receipt away before the second use, my bad I guess. Hose is pure junk.

  423. Junk exploded to about 2 weeks. Hard to find the address if you didn’t keep the box. Can’t understand the folks on the phone, out sourced to another country. Sucks, don’t ever buy one.

  424. I will not recommend the Pocket Hose to anyone. I purchased a 50ft. hose about a month ago and it is leaking in about 10 spots. I’ve only used it twice and it just started to leak everywhere. I told my friends that it was a piece of junk.

  425. I bought two 50 ft. pocket hoses that worked just fine for two watering sessions. The third session ended abruptly when the hose was growing like a water balloon and ripped through the seams of the outer layer and exploded. They should have mentioned that this was a disposable hose. Don’t waste your time and money with this product.

  426. Worse product leaks everywhere.sister s hose burst wide open with first use. My hose leaks around couplings. If wanted soaker hose, would have bought one.

  427. Every single comment on here is true. We’re all excited to buy this product, it’s a great concept but a piece of CRAP. I would like my $29.95 back, but the “AS Seen On TV” store does not give refunds.

    They need to use metal connectors so that they don’t leak and make a mess all over the place. Only then, this will be a great product.

    • Every time I called the number on my receipt (obviously not in the U.S.), they sent a new one. After a half dozen replacements, I wrote the California address and received a full refund.

  428. I bought 2 50′ pocket hoses and both times with first time use, they both broke at the on/off switches! these hoses are not worth the money or the time…..they should not be allowed on the market! I don’t know who approved of these hoses but they are nothing but a rip off and from the looks of it. I’m not the only one who got scammed from these hoses!!!

  429. Bought this around Christmas time from Bed Bath and Beyond… Hooked it up this spring and use it about 3 times a week to water the flower pots on my deck. I loved it until it started leaking from both ends where it hooks into the black plastic parts at both ends. Leaks so bad it never even expands anymore…….only maybe lasted 4-6 weeks…shameful waste of money.

  430. Don’t waste your money they are all garbage — I have been stupid bought 4 or 5. The concept is great but they just don’t last some explode first time longest any has lasted is about 3 weeks.

  431. I bought 2 hoses. The first one blew the shut off valve the first time I used it. The other one blew a hole in the hose behind the plastic fitting within seconds of closing the valve.

    These hoses are cheaply made & will not withstand any pressure. I’m very upset & disappointed in this product & it’s false advertisement.

  432. I just returned my 6th hose to Walmart. None of them have lasted more than 3-6 uses. I really like the hose, and I keep thinking the maker of pocket hose will sooner or later figure out they have a problem. It’s fantastic to store, it won’t kink, but I did have it tangle, sort of a knot, on several occasions. So far, the problem is at the connection, or it springs a leak in the hose. Walmart always takes it back, and lets me exchange it for a new hose. It has a 10 year warranty, so I just take it back and get another. It really is a great idea.

  433. I was so excited when I purchased 3 50ft. hose but, they lasted about 2 weeks before they all leaked so, disappointed that I bought them.

  434. My pocket hose broke on Tuesday am after I bought it Sunday afternoon, is that good or bad or what?

    Thank you

  435. I have bought 3 pocket hoses in the last couple of weeks. I bought 2 50 foot ones and 1 25 foot one. I have thrown all three away because each one of them blew leaks and squirted water everywhere. I was so excited to get these hoses because I have a hard time with the big rubber hoses. I am so disappointed. I hope you can do something for me. Thank you!!!!!

  436. So far I have sent three back to the store to get my money back..they should take it off the market..and stop making fools of us.

  437. We bought one 50 ft pocket hose at Walmart. It leaked where the hose joined the plastic connector at the faucet and then the hose cracked and could not be replaced or fixed. Unfortunately I cannot find the 10 year warranty card so I can return it to Walmart for a replacement. Very disappointed in the product. I liked the product when we I used it the first time and then it broke. What a rip off.

  438. I bought two 50 ft. pocket hoses and they both leaked at the connection, then a few days later they developed tiny holes, (and I only use them on a smooth patio surface) and today one completely burst open…I should have used my $40 on a nice steak dinner. It would’ve lasted about as long, and much more enjoyable!

  439. I wish I would have looked at this website before I ordered 2 hoses from a LTD book…. I had the hoses for about 2 months and they literally EXPLODED!!!!!!! I had 2 attached and they both busted at the connector, which went flying and put one heck of a dent in my car……I have learned my lesson…IF IT’S TO GOOD TO BE TRUE, DON’T BUY IT..

  440. I also bought 2 50′ pocket hose, worked great first time. The second time I used them both leaked like crazy. Like so many others I have no receipt. Worthless garbage. Do not buy this product.

  441. This product is garbage. I used it for a few weeks and then the fabric split and the plastic hose split and exploded. The same thing happened to my Mom’s. They sent a new one and the same thing happened. I really wanted to like it because it is so lightweight to carry all around the yard and then it is so easy to store but the quality is garbage. Don’t bother buying.

  442. This worked for about 2 weeks then split right at the nozzle. I have not been able to talk to a person when I called the company all I get is a recording that tries to sell me another hose. Terrible customer service.

  443. Had the hose for three days. Was cleaning the driveway and BOOM it blew apart at the fitting. I tried to repair it with a hose clamp, but why???? I misplaced the receipt and probably am stuck with it. Will not purchase another one, would like to return this one.

  444. I ordered 3 pocket hoses it took 6 weeks. I loved it & bragged to everyone about it. A week later they all sprung pinhole leaks. I liked that it is light weight. I would have to pay shipping to send back. If it took six weeks to get hose how long will it take to get money back? Why are they able to sell this in the USA? This is a scam!

  445. I bought three 50’ hoses. THEY ALL LEAKED within 2 weeks after only few uses. How can such a great idea for a product be such a piece of junk? Really! I am so disappointed. This product must be removed from the market until the company come with an industrial quality that will last for a long time. Until then ***** DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!!! *****

  446. I bought 100′ & 50′ pocket hoses from a catalogue. I love the lightness and flexibility, but my 100′ hose sprung a big leak and I had to throw it away after a month and a half of use. I’m pretty unhappy because I bragged about the hose so that my friends bought too and I also purchased a couple as gifts. I don’t remember the catalogue I ordered from, but it’s one of the few places for that long length. There’s a manufacturer’s guarantee, but it doesn’t do me any good without any paperwork

  447. I have purchased 3-50 ft. hoses and 4-25 ft. hoses. All 3 of the 50 ft. hoses and 1 of the 25 ft. hose busted to no end. My daughter and I literally got drenched both ended up with cold symptoms from the wetness and the cool air. This is far the truth than the advertisement being relayed to the public. With the cost of the hoses, shipping and handling, besides the aggravation, I hope other customers find that it is not worth buying this product unless there is major change in the quality of the pocket hoses. This has been wasted money and the trust of this company for me and hope other customers learn from these complaints.

  448. I have 3 of these “amazing” hoses. What amazes me about them is I don’t see how they can leak more water than what comes thru the hose. Don’t have receipts but am hoping Wal- Mart will take them back.

  449. I bought a pocket hose at a Home Depot. Brought it home , hooked it up, turned it on, plastic had a cut in it. Very bad Quality control from the manufacturer. I will take it back and hopefully get my money back and will not purchase another one. Just can’t believe everything you see on TV!

  450. Three days ago I bought three pocket hose’s and when I hooked it up and turned the water on I found a small pin hole in the hose about one foot down from the facet. the second hose had a hair line crack by the shut off valve on the hose and the third on also had two hole’s about half way the hose. to me it seam’s like the hose’s are poorly made . I will admit they are nice and lite weight easy to use but I would not recommend it to anyone.

  451. Had it for a couple weeks. Started leaking where the green hose goes into the plastic end. Turned it on two more times and it was squirting water everywhere. Had to throw it out!!!

  452. I bought a pocket hose and I used it 3 times. The 3rd time it blew up in my face . I have low pressure and I don’t know why this happened. At my age 81 I would have like this for my garden. Where can I get a new one back without having to send this back and pay some more money?

    • I’m on my third one from Bed bath and Beyond. I walked in the door with my busted one and the clerk just pointed to the stack of new ones. I threw the junk one on the counter and I was gone. I would imagine the retailer that you purchased it from will do the same.

  453. I brought 4 of the hoses. They did not last a week. All 4 burst with big holes. The last I will buy any those hoses. I went back to what works.

  454. I love the product. I have three 50 footers. It is all it is advertised, however I am having a problem with ruptures right at the coupling on both ends.

  455. We purchased 3 pocket hoses. They all sprung a leak within a couple days. What a scam. I can’t believe they haven’t been pulled from the market.

  456. This Pocket Hose is the biggest scam I have ever experienced! I bought 2 50 foot lengths one month ago. At first, they both worked great! All in one day, both leaked, and I mean in big gushes at the connecting points. They cannot be repaired, because you can’t find anything that will repair them. They are cheaply made in China. What else could one expect??

  457. Purchased a 50ft pocket hose and after 10 minutes it bursted at the outlet. Save your money and purchase a good quality rubber hose. This has been the worst product I have ever purchased. The inside hose is cheap plastic and after inspection, I am surprised it lasted 10 minutes.

  458. I purchased one of these 50 ft pocket hoses and the 3rd time I used it the end popped off. I was very careful not place a lot of pressure immediately on this thing anyway each time I used it. I am so disappointed in this product. I think it is terrible how people spend their hard earned money and get such quality. I purchased this hose because I have extreme back arthritis issues and thought it would be a great instead of dragging out the old rubber hose being so difficult. What a joke. Now the next joke is I accidentally shredded my receipt just a few days before and now am stuck with this useless thing I purchased from a Drug Store Chain. Apparently these things weren’t tested because they sure would not have passed to be sold on the market.

  459. Was so excited when I purchased my POCKET hose. Brought it home and connected it right away. It leaked like crazy ! Not only in one place but in three places. I was trying to loosen and then tried to tighten it, all in hopes that it would stop leaking. In doing so …it broke. Therefore I was not able to return it to the store . I was so disappointed because the hose is so light weight, so I bought another one. Guess what?? The same thing happened only in different places. This is just crazy. The hose is going back and I will NOT buy another one.

  460. Pocket Hose is CRAP… DO NOT BUY IT. Had it for about a month. Worked great for about 3 weeks. Then I noticed a small leak no big deal. Then a few days ago I went to water my lawn and half of the hose has leaks and I hardly get any water pressure. I will never buy this again.

  461. Bought 2 Pocket Hoses and received 1 as a gift. All three burst after one or two uses. My son and son-in- law had the same experience. Do not waste your money on the pocket hose.

  462. Had our Pocket Hose for 4 months and today in less than 5 minutes 3 holes appeared in it. Will not purchase another one.

  463. I decided to buy a pocket hose for a camping trip we just got back from. Well, i hooked the hose up and watched it grow in length as shown on TV. I sprayed a few things off I needed cleaned and set about setting up the rest of our campsite. While taking a break we noticed that there was a puddle of water near where the hose was. I investigated and saw that the hose had split and was leaking profusely rendering this hose completely useless. I had to throw it away. It cost me $20.00 to use a hose for about a minute. Something is wrong with this picture. Now, I ask; how do I get my money back?

  464. I will not purchase another one of these hoses. They do not roll up as shown on TV. We bought two so that we could take these with us when camping. Used one day and where water hose connects to house, they blew holes in them.

  465. I was so excited when I received the pocket hose as a mother’s day gift. Worked great till yesterday. Was watering the garden and it exploded. Great idea but bad product. What a waste of money. Could have bought a regular hose for less and had it for 2-3 years.

  466. This product is a piece of crap. I bought 6 of them and within 2 1/2 weeks 4 of them started leaking making them worthless.

  467. I had my pocket hose I ordered from Publisher’s Clearing House for just two weeks, then it burst wide open, I wish I had my money back, I paid $27.00 for it.. A huge waste of money and so disappointed. I will write consumer’s report on this matter & BBB. Don’t buy this crap!

    • We bought 2 at Bed & Bath had to take back, both leaked. Went to Home Depot to check what they had. They said the had 12, returned in one day. We finally bought a flexable hose — they work fine.

  468. My girlfriend and I bought two fifty FT pocket hoses and they work great for a little while. Then One of the hoses burst in my hands. The hose looks like someone packed it with explosives. It’s useless. Lasted about two months.

  469. Guy on ” Home Improvement” should be ashamed, this thing is a piece of crap. They should have to give everyone their money back.

  470. I thought since that dude that use to be on the show ” Tool Time ” advertised this it would be a good product. It is a piece of crap, didn’t last a month. SAVE YOUR MONEY and buy a regular hose.


  472. We bought one and it started leaking, back it went. So we tried another one it did the same thing so back it went. Did not try anymore. This product is not worth the money or hassle.
