Leak-Proof Brass Swivel
An exclusive design with revolutionary performance, this solid brass and aluminum swivel features 3/4“ flow capacity and is guaranteed to be leak-free for 10 years.
Rugged alloy-aluminum construction provides commercial-duty strength and durability while also delivering years of rust-proof performance.
A simple on-off lever controls this innovative braking system that stops the reel from unspooling more hose when you don’t want it to.
Comfort-Grip Crank Handle
This teardrop-shaped, full-palm grip crank handle spins freely on a solid aluminum shaft, is virtually unbreakable, and allows for quick, easy and painless hose rewinding.
Durable, Powder-Coat Finish
Eley reels are coated with a high-grade paint powder which is then baked on at 400°F. The result is a hard, smooth and extremely durable surface that will resist fading, cracking and peeling for years, even again the most extreme weather conditions. The neutral Spartan-bronze color was selected due to its ability to blend in beautifully with virtually any color of siding, brick, stucco, stone or wood.
Mounting Brackets & Hardware
Four aluminum and powder coated brackets come with stainless mounting hardware to make attaching the reel to the post quick, easy and trouble-free. Hardware includes four 1/4" x 2" hex-head lag screws for mounting to the wood post.
Smooth-Spin Axle Bushings
Maintenance-free and made of quality Delrin® material, these axle bushings allow the hose to effortlessly pull out and rewind. We guarantee smooth spinning for at least 10 years.
Commercial-Duty Inlet Hose
With a tube and cover made of incredibly durable polyurethane, plus crush-proof, nickel-plated brass fittings, the extreme-duty inlet hose eliminates the possibility of disappointing leaks, guaranteed.
150-ft Hose Capacity
Covering the same distance of half the length of a football field, our hose reels will hold up to 150 foot of 5/8" garden hose, which will be more than sufficient to reach the outer corners of most residential properties. For those that need more, an optional Extra-Capacity Kit will expand the reel’s capacity up to 225 feet of 5/8" hose. NOTE: All reels are produced for 5/8" flow, however can be converted for 3/4" flow by upgrading the reel with the purchase of a 3/4" inlet hose and a recommended 3/4" gooseneck adapter.
Optional Extra-Capacity Kit
By widening the center drum of the reel with an easy-to-install “spacer,” this kit conveniently increases reel capacity up to 225 feet (75 yards) of 5/8“ hose, or 170 feet (56 yards) of 3/4" hose. The kit includes a longer axle, drum spacer and all necessary hardware and tools.
10 Year Warranty
You won’t find a company that stands behind their products better than ELEY. Our proprietary products are guaranteed not to leak, rust or break for 10 years. That means this $185 hose reel (apprx. shipping included), used for 10 years, equates to just $18.50 per year…or only $1.54 per month.

What are the 'actual' wood post dimensions that this will mount to?
Lumber dimensions are a bit misleading. When the board is first rough cut from the log, it is to the true measurement, such as a 4" x 6" post. However, the drying process and planning of the board reduces it to its finished dimensions. As such, our reference to a 4"x 6" post, is actually a 3-1/2" x 5-1/2" post. The wood post kit that comes with this hose reel, is designed to fit on posts whose exact width is either 3-1/2" or 5-1/2".
Are replacement parts available?
Yes. Eley stocks parts for our proprietary products in two conveniently located warehouses and can ship in a matter of just hours. Parts can be ordered from this website or by calling customer service at 1-866-523-2363, Mon-Fri, 8 AM-5 PM CST.
Are the reels available in different colors?
Eley garden hose reels are only available in our "Spartan bronze" color. This attractive, neutral bronze color was selected for its unique ability to blend in and look great with almost any color of siding, brick, stucco, wood and other surfaces.
Is this product rated for drinking water?
Products marketed as "Drinking Water Safe" must adhere to the NSF/ANSI Standard 61 for Drinking Water System Components as regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The certification process is extremely expensive and time-consuming and simply too cost-prohibitive for companies whose products don't specifically target the "Potable Water" market. Accordingly, Eley Corporation has not submitted this product for the certification process.
Are longer lengths of inlet hoses available?
Yes. All hose reels come standard with a 6-1/2 ft. x 5/8" polyurethane garden hose. If you need a longer length or size of hose, we do offer a 12 foot length available in both 5/8" and 3/4" sizes. These hoses can be purchased to add-on to, or replace the standard inlet hose. Our inlet hose selection can be viewed on our Inlet Hose page.
Do you make larger capacities reels?
The largest capacity hose reel available from Eley is any of our standard models modified with our Extra-Capacity Kit. Equipped with this optional kit, our reels can hold up to 225 feet of 5/8" hose or 170 feet of 3/4" hose.
When is the Extra-Capacity Kit necessary?
Although the standard capacity hose reel is capable of holding 150 feet of 5/8" ID poly hose, it must be reeled back in very carefully and neatly in order to get the entire 150 feet of length onto the reel. We consider the 100 foot length of 5/8" poly hose the best fit for the standard capacity hose reel, allowing for plenty of room for the hose even if not reeled in neatly. The 150 foot length is the best fit for reels equipped with the Extra-Capacity Kit. The photos below demonstrate the difference of the 150 ft. x 5/8" hose on a standard capacity reel and one with equipped with our Extra-Capacity Kit.
Can the reel be converted to 3/4 flow?
Yes. The entire internal plumbing of all Eley garden hose reels consists of two components, 1) the inlet hose and 2) the brass swivel. The standard inlet hose that is supplied with each reel is 5/8" ID. However, our patented brass swivel is a full-flow 3/4" swivel. So to convert the reel to 3/4" flow, simply replace the 5/8" inlet hose with a 3/4" inlet hose of your choosing, (sold separately). Eley offers two 3/4" inlet hoses in lengths of 6-1/2 and 12 ft. on our Inlet Hose page.
Is any assembly required?
Yes. However, the assembly process is not difficult. The assembly instruction manuals can be view on our Owner's Manual page.
Can I use thread locking compound on the stainless steel screws during assembly?
ELEY does not advise using a thread locking compound, whether it be low, medium or high strength. The reason is; if removal is required at a later time, there are a number of places where you are not able to access both the nut and the screw to hold them properly if a thread locker has been used.
Do the reels come with a level-wind option?
At this time, the Eley does not offer a level-wind feature on our garden hose reels. Also know as hose guides, a level-wind is designed to guide the hose back and forth onto the reel while rewinding.
What maintenance is required?
Eley garden hose reels are completely maintenance free. However, if you live in a winter climate, be sure to winterize the reel to protect it from freeze damage. View our winterizing Video.
