Pocket Hose Brass Bullet is a newer generation of the previous Pocket Hose, one which is now six times, allegedly, stronger than the competition. Expands when you fill it with water, contracts when you turn the water off. This hose makes watering projects easier than ever. When contracted, it fits into the palm of your hand so you can carry it with you to any other part of the yard. Then just attach the brass fittings to the connectors and water faucet to start it up again.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Pocket Hose Brass Bullet is $19.99 plus $7.99 shipping, for a total price of $27.98. Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page: brassbullethose.com

Features

  • Improved

    The Pocket Hose Brass Bullet is an improved design, one that is a newer generation of the older Pocket Hose Bullet hose.

  • More Sizes

    Whereas previous generations of this hose were limited in size, this one is designed to expand up to 100 feet. This means that when you affix it to your water faucet, then turn it on, it will expand to the length of 100 feet. Making it easier to complete any watering, gardening, or cleaning jobs you have.

  • Collapsible

    This hose is collapsible, making it perfect for tasks like washing your car, rinsing off your dog, cleaning your rain gutters, or watering your lawn.

  • Dura Rib Technology

    This hose uses new Dura Rib Technology which is how the hose gets it flexible design.

  • Brass Connectors

    This hose connects to any outdoor water faucet using the brass connector protectors. These are also in place to prevent water from leaking out of the line when you use the hose. Nothing is worse than having your hose connection points spraying water when you go to turn them on or off.

  • Leak Proof

    This hose is leak proof. It has a durable outer lining which prevents it from being ripped, something that makes it easier to prevent any leaks.

  • Solar Protected

    This hose is improved with an outer Solar Stripe Shield. Such a shield protects it from damage caused by UV rays. Whereas other hoses might crack after long exposure in the sun, this hose enjoys an extended lifespan instead.

Pros

  • Top Selling

    This hose is actually a top selling expandable garden hose, now six times stronger than the competition, whereas the previous generations were only three times stronger.

  • Use Other Connectors

    If you have other hose connectors like sprayers, they should work fine when attached to this hose.

  • Use Anywhere

    This lightweight design is ideal for gifts, particularly, again, for those who have children tasked with watering, for those who have arthritis, or other issues bending over and carrying heavy hoses. Attach it in your front yard, back yard, use on commercial projects, use it to clean your driveway or patio, and much more.

    The hose is designed to be small enough that you can keep one in your boat, in your RV, or at the office so that you can use it whenever you need a hose. You never know when water might become a priority, or when you need to pull over to the side of a rest stop and rinse off mud from your car before you drive home.

Cons

  • Can Get Holes

    While this design is certainly an improvement over the previous generation, it is still a rather fragile hose. Its flexible design is what lends it to be so fragile. In fact, there have been issues where it almost immediately develops pinholes which explode rather catastrophically within seconds. With one hundred feet of length, the risk of pinholes is vast and difficult to prevent.

  • Low Pressure

    Theses hoses have very low pressure tolerance. That means if you have any type of moderate to high water pressure in your home, it might burst. Many have experienced the hose bursting immediately under high water pressure. When this happens, the water can tear through the hose, ripping it apart.

  • Does Not Extend as Stated

    Though this hose specifically says it extends to one hundred feet, that is the best possible extension. Meaning, the longest it will reach is one hundred feet. In the meantime, when you are using it normally, with regular water pressure, you might struggle to get it to extend beyond fifty feet, as many customers have noted.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Drain

    The instructions state to always drain the hose completely. You cannot just leave it hooked up with water inside, though it does not state why not.

  2. Store Indoors

    This hose specifically states that you must store it inside. Given that it has UV protection and an extra layer of interior lining, there is no real reason provided as to why you have to store it indoors. Nonetheless, the instructions with the hose specifically say to always put it inside when not in use.

Complaints

  1. No Shut Off

    Many have complained that there is no shut off knob, which means you have to go all the way back to the source in order to turn it off. What's more, most customers said it worked fine for the first two weeks, and on the third week is when they almost all had issues with it.

Alternatives

  • Gnome Flexible Garden Hose

    Gnome has a flexible garden hose which is flexible, as the name suggests, retractable, and expandable. It too has brass connectors. Said hose is five times lighter than traditional hoses. Users will see that it does not twist, tangle, or kink. With flexible exterior webbing, the hose is soft to the touch, never too hot or too cold because of weather. Moreover, the inside has stretchable latex which is what helps it to contract back to a small size when not in use.

  • Jfsg Outdoor

    JFSG outdoor offers a 50 foot expandable garden hose. Expandable and flexible, this hose too is kink and burst resistant. Lightweight, kids and the elderly can carry it around without any issue. Use it to water your garden, wash a car, and anything else without worries about water pressure exploding the hose. This design, too, fills with water and expands, then drains the water to contract.

Warnings

  • Explosion Prone

    There are serious issues with customers stating the hose has exploded on them, like an overfilled balloon. The alternatives on the market do not have these complaints. Pocket hose company designer has not responded to the complaints about explosions either. Be warned that many customers have stated that the hose exploded violently when first plugged in and turned on, at unexpected times after it was pinhole punctured, and after just a few weeks of use.

    While it might just be an issue of having high water pressure, you are advised to either seek a competing product. Alternatively, check the water pressure levels for your home, then compare them with a customer service representative from the company to verify that this will not be too high for the hose.

Complete Crap

First time I hooked it up, turned it on, got little or now water, pulled it ( I am a 60-year-old woman, not that hard ) and the interior part disconnected from the nozzle. Piece of crap. Do not buy.

Worst Product Ever

I bought 2. One for the front of my house and one for the back. They were purchased last fall and put away new in their original packages until 3 weeks ago when I hooked them up. This week the both popped and blew a hole. What Junk. I paid $29.99 each for them. Total waste of my $.

Sorry I Bought This Product

Bought original hose that burst after 4 uses. Then bought the new bullet hose ( 100ft ) thinking the manufacture had corrected the product. The new hose also burst after a couple of uses. Had two new 50ft hoses on order that have now been cancelled. This product needs more technical work on its construction.

Definitely Not a Lifetime

Bought one of these, hoping it was finally what it was advertised to be, but failed with a geyser leak on the second day. The old ones usually lasted a season, but were still an annual expense. The latest one was a total failure.

A Little Better than Garbage

I've had several models of these flex hoses, and they all cave in quickly -- especially around the connector and nozzle. It's great the first few times you use it, but all four of the models I've tried leaked and broke within a few weeks. While it is a hassle grappling with a conventional hose, the tried and true is definitely the better choice in the long run.

Don't Waste Your Money

I've had two of the pocket hoses and the both leaked after a couple off uses. They leak just behind the connectors. I don't have high water pressure. They say they expand to max size and do until you turn your sprayer on then they start contracting immediately. You need a house twice as long as you think because they start shrinking when you turn your sprayer on. Good idea if they worked but their only good for a couple off uses them they fail. I always drained them completely and stored them inside.

It never ceases to amaze me. You get two groups of people together to discuss a product we all need. One group is called "The Owners" of the product. Then there's another group called "The Prospects".

The owners present their product in a way to identify the features, advantages, and benefits of the product that will be of value to the prospect.

I see that there are a number of conversations on this board, some in favor of the hose and some against it. Thank you to those who came to this board with a thirst for knowledge and information. And thanks to those of you that passed on you information and opinions

Then there a the few. And I don't mean the Marines. The few that live in an apartment at age 45. With Mommy and Daddy. So much for a civic exchange of ideas. These knuckleheads come on here to criticize the grammar and spelling of our teammates.

Why don't you spelling champs and editors go to www.enquirer.com, edit the newspaper and email your results to the Enquirer's Publisher!

Worthless

I have purchased 3 of these hoses within a months time and they have all bust with just a little use! They are no where near the money wasted on them! I rate this product a big fat 0!

So this hose is great. Except for when the nozzle or any nozzle gets threaded in too tight, you can't get it off because there is nothing to hold onto or put pliers on to get it lose. So the hose just twists. Maybe try using the product before selling it.
