I use two Rubbermaid type containers with lids (one for the white drinking water hoses, one for garden hose) that are sized large enough to coil the hose(s) inside. I also keep all the hose related hardware (nozzles, adapters, pressure regulator, etc. in the corresponding box too. The boxes are somewhat clear so I can easily see which box has which hose(s). With the lids on, there's no way the "snakes" can escape and they remain nicely coiled until needed.

I do the same, but use only 1 container. Always screw the ends of the hose together to keep things from going inside.

Thanks everyone, sounds like there is a lot of different ways. What i'm doing now is coiling it by hand and screwing the ends together but the hose isn't very pliable so it just uncoils once it's in the storage area. I'm gonna try to use the cordpro as i'm looking for some type of reel.

Good choice.

You will be be pleased.

The CordPro XL will hold 50' of water hose. You only need to unreel as much as needed to reach.

I coil the hose inside a 5 gal bucket, then throw the other "water" accessories in the middle (regulator, inline filter, elbow, etc.) and pop on the top. The bucket has come in handy over the past 2 years, especially as a stool for attaching the PUGs.

Use an over-under gaffers coil. Throw it and it unwinds straight. Never kinks. I'm still using garden hoses that my parents bought in 1976.

Thanks for the name of this maneuver. I've been doing this for years but I never knew the name. Haha

I just coil them up in small coil and use a velcro strap to hold them together and stor them in plastic tub in front compartment. I use two 25' hoses as sometimes one is enough
