Ames True Temper True Temper Reel Easy Hose Reel Caddy 2386375
This product might work if your hose is always running, but if the hose happens to have a kink in it, or if the water is turned off at the nozzle, turning on the water leading to the reel blows out (literally!!) a black plastic connector that attaches the reel to the hose that leads to the water line. Two small screws hold the connector to the reel, so any build-up of pressure inside the reel leads to disaster.It seemed a good idea at the time, but obviously not practical for anyone with decent water pressure if there is ANY chance that the hose might be blocked at some point past the hose reel.

With Amazon Prime shipping it was here in 2 days fully assembled. It's a sturdy piece of equipment and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. It has double O-rings to help prevent leaking, a 4-1/2-foot leader hose brass coupling, and notches to hold loose ends of the hose. It can be mounted on a wall or used in a stationary position. You can use the handle to carry it, although ours is pretty heavy with 100 feet of hose on it.I made a slideshow in case you want a better look and you can see what it looks like with a hose wrapped around it.
