Life will not exist without water. Finding the best coiled water hose will be a solution to getting water where you need it in a simple and effective way whether you are a professional detailer like myself, or as basic as a home owner looking to water their garden.
Garden hoses have always been very cumbersome and come with their share of problems.
Over the past decade retractable or recoiling water hoses have become very popular as alternative to heavy, cumbersome garden hoses of the past.
While everything has its limitations, a coiled garden hose is a must have for any professional detailer or home owner looking to simplify their world! The list of benefits is long and makes for a compelling argument:
The latest in retractable or coiled water hoses has a long list of benefits over the traditional garden water hose:

When it comes to being truly effective and efficient, it is always going to take more than a single tool for any job. Operating a professional mobile detail business I am always looking for ways to maximize profits.
While this retractable water hose is not the only water hose I carry with me, it is one of two.
I tried the other retractable hoses in the past; you know the kind that literally shrink back into size after they have filled up with water and expanded to length. I have found those to be a great idea, but they ultimately fail after very little use.
The one I chose originally failed at the most inconvenient time immediately after detailing a car. Only to have the end pop off and spray my freshly detailed car with water!
What a mess!
I was never going to repeat that mistake; especially after trying (2) separate types of the recoiling or retractable hoses that expand to length, and having both of them fail on me.
For this reason I went with a more expensive, and solid type of coiled hose and have not regretted it since!
As noted above, having the right tool for the job is key to not only success, but being more profitable. The hose below is the second hose I carry with me and works in conjunction with the coiled water hose from above.
Darren's Warning: In a society where all of us have been trained with the "more is always better" mentality, many of you think that buying the traditional "industrial grade" hoses are the way to go.
Having worked at endless houses in my detailing world, I see these industrial strength hoses all day long. And one thing I can tell you is that they are completely over-rated!
Not only do they become extremely rigid in cooler
weather (and by cooler I am referring to anything below the temperature
of 65 degrees), but these industrial strength hoses become miserable to work with due to the blend of materials used. What
you want is a hose like the one below that is made from high-quality
rubber and will not cause unwanted and unnecessary aggravation.
Since I operate a mobile detail business and work on location, having a reliable way to get water from the source to where I need it is critical.
Not only do the both of these hoses perform independently at a superior level, but having both of them on hand allows for more versatility on my part:
In the name of detailing made simple, I hope you see how perfectly both these tools work into that equation!
