The hose definitely does not extend to 25 foot, to stretch it to any length is tough and puts pressure on the tap which caused the tap extention to snap. We've had to buy a normal hose on a reel. I would take it back to homebase but unfortunately the store here in perth has closed down!

Read a lot about this hose, so decided to buy it.
Mush easier to handle than the old one I had!
Delighted with it, and it came with a universal adapter too which was what I needed!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BD A real game-changer
Does exactly what it says on the tin. Quick to set up, expands and contracts as described, stores quickly and easily into a small space and is far quicker to use and easier on the eye than a traditional hose. A real game-changer.

I Bought this for my wife to use from a connection in the garden. The shut off valve supplied leaked so I and to put a Gardena one that I had on it and that did work.
It also has a fixed connector for a tap so if you want to connect it to a normal connector you need to get an adapter to screw in to the tap connector so you can then connect a normal "snap on" connector. I feel this should be supplied with the hose.
Despite our water pressure being OK the hose would extend with the shut of valve closed but as soon as you opened to start watering the hose shrunk back almost to nothing. In the end it would extend half way but no more.
In the end I added an extra outlet to our existing system with a retractable hose built in and the X hose is now gathering dust in the shed.
