This PVC pool hose reel only cost around $25. You can find all of the materials in local hardware stores and make it using simple tools. Some benefits of this design:

1. The hose is wound vertically on the reel so that the water in the hose can drain out.

2. To release any twisting and kinking of the hose, 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 can also carry and store a hose, brush, vacuum head and leaf rake.
