We have always had wheeled hose reels. They are more bulky but at least you can wheel them out to your starting point, tie the hose off, and then walk it back to the van laying out just enough hose. We do this where there are lots of corners the hose has to be dragged around.

I do it the other way my hose reel stays at the van. I pull out the max of what I need at the start of the job and don't need to move the reel.

 

To the OP… I paid about £120 - £150 for a steel reel and 100m of re-enforced micro bore hose. It has taken a lot of abuse and earned its cost. 'If' I was going to go cheaper, instead of getting a cheap, low quality version of the same thing, i would try pole hose hose and a cheap reel.

We mostly do as you do. It is those odd houses where you have got to pull the hose around 1/2 a dozen walls.

Not saying buy cheap. Course you can get dearer hose as with anything else. If yer on a budget then the £12-15 hose off eBay is a good start.

 

Incidentally I bought 2 of these hoses 18 months ago & have been dragged everywhere & are still going strong.

My other hose I got off gardeners for £16 in a sale. No difference in either hose. All are 100m.
