But it really doesn't make watering any more fun like the ad promises LOL

We did get a 2nd one and now we can reach completely around our house front and back. Even with 2 of them it takes up much less space than one regular hose and it is much lighter.

The only downside is that it only come one size - I think it's 1/2".
you must havea tiny house...

reviews are like, well, you know. like opinions and rear body parts. but they do have a function. cynacism begets itself if pragmatism and experience is ignored.

i wonder how mamy people know about those little tabs on the sides of plastic wrap and foil boxes that are supposed to he pushed in aggressively in order to hold the roll in place? a long skewer, knitting kneedle, chop stick, or heck, thin reed or tree branch inserted through the pressed in openings on the sides helps.

I have the same thing, only from Sam's Club. I've been using one roll now for about 3 years and it's still going strong. When we moved down here, we bought a second roll of plastic wrap and one of foil (and I already had 4 rolls at 250 feet each). I doubt that we will ever need another of either as long as I'm alive.

Shrek doesn't believe me when I say we bought our plastic wrap about 15 years ago, we bought it on our first ever trip to Costco. I know it was at least 15 years as we had it when we were in the 1 bedroom apartment in Student Housing. I haven't picked it up lately, so I am not sure how much is left.

I had one of those "forever rolls" of Costco plastic wrap once. Sadly though I lost the balance of it in my divorce LOL

Had I known, I would have gladly testified on your behalf as to how it would be too cruel to separate you from it and how you had formed a bond with it over the years. What a heartless judge!

Next time, if there is one, please call me. You can lie, and I will swear to it.

It's advertised here as well but I have a similar thing from the local supermarket - much cheaper.

Incidentally, I was given some useful advice about "cling film", as it's called over here. If you keep it in the 'fridge it calms the "life of its own" symptoms and makes it easy to handle. It really works and it's cheaper than fancy gadgets.
