I bought a 75 foot Brass Bullet Pocket Hose with the "exclusive Bullet Shell Outer Casing. The very first time the hose up to the outdoor faucet I got a face full of water.
Instead of the water coming out the water delivery end, it came out from UNDER the beige plastic cowling - full force. Even after I removed the brass spray nozzle the water still backtrack and came out from under the brass cowling. It appears that at some point perhaps the crimp between the hose and the cowling failed.
I will go back to Home Depot, get a different brand of lightweight retractable hose and consider this one a loss. The UPC code is 0 97298 02853 3.
Reason of review: Bad quality.
Monetary Loss: $30.
Preferred solution: Replace hose with one that works.
