Common sense approach would be to get some brass barbed repair joiners or self-amalgamating tape. 

I don't drag my hose i pick it up and carry it. At a pound a meter I take care of mine.

It doesn't help in the winter when it's colder and hose is harder

We had our first hose reels for 5 years before  we changed the hose and it was regularly run over by cars and lorries.

I treat mine like 💩and it is fine.. had this one for 2 years and have a chip out of the outer costing in 1 spot but I drag it everywhere across the ground same as my rectus 26 fittings with no issues.

Have you got a link to the hose you use?

Even regularly having bin lorries go over mine causes no issues.

As above what’s causing the holes ??? You can put joiners in but the don’t roll on the reel very well 

think its when its pulled round brick corners, takes the layers off

You could probably put a joiner in it but I am wondering what is happening for them to get holes? Normally hose lasts for years.

If you think that's the cause you can get plastic guides to put against the corners, can't remember what they're called though.

That would slow me down and I guarantee they would be forgotten about and left at a job within the first day.

Ok we pull ours round the same and pebble dash walls without causing damage hose usually lasts 2-3 years treating it this way , unless you have caught it on sharp metal bell cast it should be ok ??? Don’t know what to suggest to be honest  , maybe go a bit more carefully ??

That's the one we had on our original one and the one we have on now. Regularly take shavings off it on bricks and even exposed the inner part on the original one but only once punctured one on a nail sticking out under a gate.

Huge fan of their engineering but not of their consumables. My next hose will be from a different supplier. Our 6mm red braided hose from them, on their hot water twin stack, shrank 10% so got them to replace it with the 8mm yellow.

True, I'd be guaranteed to leave them behind.

If I need to use an extension or my telescopic ladders to jump a flat roof I'm guaranteed to only realise then when I need it that I've forgotten it at a job the day before.

Good job my round is mostly in 1 town.

We use Gardiners yellow microbore they don’t  sell it anymore but daqua and Grippatank sell the same stuff we use it with hot water as well without any damage 

Second this, use the same stuff. On to my second hose only because I got a new reel and wanted to keep the old as backup.
