    Thing with it is that it's cheap enough to buy n try. Been getting samples of other hose n it's all more expensive n none of it feels good, had a sample that seemed exactly same as gardiners but twice the price

    As daveyboy said it should be good to use from the reel. However if it does still have some coil memory, then unrolling it and laying it all out and leaving overnight should get rid of it.

    Not all hoses are the same :) - All of our PVC hoses are made in the UK to very high standards from virgin PVC compounds

    It was a firm in Taiwan - MOQ 100,000m - We stopped using them several years ago as their quality became inconsistent - we then switched to a more reliable, albeit more expensive, UK supplier.

    The stuff that you bought was not meant to be that soft, which is why we had to sell it off as soft pole hose and it was the final straw for the firm supplying us!
