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.

Or, you might consider putting the reel a solid surface like a paver at least 20” wide.[/section]
