    does it not matter much, ive noticed in some pics some lads have there reel unwinding from the bottom, mine pulls out from the top.
    there may be more resistence coming from the top.
    have anyone changed there reel hose over from top to bottom or vise versa

    I've found you have more chance if reeling out the hose from the top the hose will jam as it can come over the side of the reel.

    is this just a normal garden hose guide picked up in the likes of wilkinsons, b+q the likes.
    have you bolted or simply screwed onto flooring plywood.

    Depends what you prefer o_O......

    Winding handle on the right and hose on top.........you reel-in clockwise.
    Winding handle on the right and hose on bottom...you reel-in anti-clockwise.

    Winding handle on the left and hose on top.........you reel-in anti clockwise
    Winding handle on the left and hose on bottom...you reel-in clockwise.

    ;)........:whistle::whistle:........:D.

    a lot of thought has gone into that bingo, thats exactly the way you have to do it. dont you just love muddy wet hoses, winding them in.
