This PVC pool hose reel only cost more or less $25. You can find all of the materials in local hardware store and make it by simple tools. And get more benefits:
1. The hose is vertically wound on the reel; the interior water of the wet hose can drain out from lower end opening of the hose even after the hose being wound in order.
2. To release any twisting and kinking of the hose in the water, an arm gets the hose untangled in advance of winding on the reel
3. The vertical reel can be removed from the base frame to unwind the hose by gravity (it's fast).
4. It also can carry and store a hose, brush, vacuum head and leaf rake.
