Suncast is a leader in provide durable, weather resistant products that serve the homeowners need to organize. The Suncast model Sta100 is their wall mounted hose reel that is effective hose storage and reel solution.
Manufactured from weather resistant hard plastic the model Sta100 is setup from the manufacturer to mount onto the wood sheathing under your homes siding. Mounting onto concrete would necessitate purchasing concrete fasteners. Assembly is easy and a suitable project for those who have basic tool skills. Aside from assuring your mounting doesn't interfere with plumbing or electrical lines it is foolproof, if you own a good power drill screw bit driver and 5/32" drill bit.
Once the base unit is mounted to the wall, you simply connect the three foot leader hose to the integrated bib mounted on the base unit. You are now ready to attach the reel to the hub of the base unit and lock onto the base, simple!
The Sta100 has the capacity to store and reel 100 feet of 5/8" hose, which will suit most consumer needs. The Easylink system, mounted just outside the reel assures a watertight connection allowing for clockwise collection of your hose.
I like the Suncast model Sta100 for a number of reasons, primarily because it provides an affordable solution fro hose organization. At under $25.00 you really cannot go wrong with this selection. Elderly users benefit greatly as they can install the Sta100 at the proper height for convenience. The built in hose guide eliminates the annoying off reel winding. Finally, you can the reel off the base unit for winter storage which is a plus, assuring long service life.
There isn't anything I don't like about the Suncast model Sta100, it has it all, it is priced right and is feature laden to meet most consumers' expectations for an effective solution to hopes management. This one is a winner!
