Mine rolls up over the top of the reel. I try and go one step further by holding the hose while it rolls up and move it from side to side to enable a more even coiling of the hose on the reel. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Same thing here. Mine is over the top, but it is hacked up pretty good. Seems like if the hose is twisted or kinked, or otherwise not perfect on the reel, it develops the breaks in the skin. Looks like my hose will turn into a Super Soaker any moment now.

I think I will just try a better quality hose. This one seems to split if you look at it cross-eyed.

I'm considering bypassing the reel, hook a 12" up to the water intake, let it dangle through the existing slot, add a quick disconnect to the end of the 12"er and store my hose in the basement.

Wow, what a timely post. I was just about to pop for the hose real but after reading the experiences I think I'll stick with what I got. I did remove the panel directly above the water connection and attached a poly box to the service panel and store the hose there.
