GREAT CHRISTMAS PRESENT IDEA!
This is an original Big Boss X-Hose sold by the UK official retailer High Street TV/JML/ARGOS/ASDA.
Please be careful when buying these XHoses on EBay from other sellers as there is so many fake ones being sold. If someone is selling these on a very cheap buy it now price and you can see they have sold many then chances are they are fake. Other sellers are tricking buyers by changing the description so that it does show under a search for XHoses but if you look at their description it might say something like brand new " X TYPE EXPANDING HOSE" X type is not XHose. These Hoses also will not come with the blue Hozelock snap on connections to connect to your garden sprinklers, water guns, pressure washers or even the outside tap. The fake hoses will connect to most outside taps but you would have to screw it on but you would not be able to use the hose as the other end would be American standard and will not fit any UK garden sprinklers water guns, pressure washers etc you would then have to either try to order the Hozelock couplings online or would have to try to buy American watering equipment. The Genuine/Original UK version of the XHose is supplied with one blue Hozelock connection to enable you to use all UK hose fittings such as sprinklers, water guns, pressure washers etc. You are also able to buy another (optional extra) blue Hozelock connector that attaches to the start of your XHose and snap fit onto your garden tap. Both these connectors screw into each end of the XHose a different way and they both come in blue. If you see a XHose being sold without any of these blue connectors or if the colour is green etc. then the hose is fake. Pictures of the blue connector are in my listing. Also if you look at the hoses and see they have the green connectors which are built into the hose and not screwed in then you will also see the hose does not have a little tap/lever connection either and really this is needed to make the hose work properly.
Other sellers are selling new 75ft XHoses with a free green or blue water gun but again these are cheap fake copies and they supply the water gun free so the hose will work for you but you will not be able to connect your hose to any UK water gun or sprinkler as the hose will come American standard so will not have a Hozelock connector on it. Also genuine UK XHoses will come with the colour printed instructions/paperwork (also shown in my pictures) which has the High Street TV logo in the corner etc. If anyone is selling XHoses listing them as new or new other and again has sold many of them then they should come with this colour paperwork. If they don't then they are fake.
Fake hoses will not last and will either split or burst very easily and you will lose your money. They are cheaply made.
I have heard of genuine XHoses bursting but I strongly suspect that they have either been caught on a sharp object such as a rosebush thorn, broken glass or a screw/nail. The XHose is very tough, you could bang a hammer on it and it would be fine but a sharp object will damage it.
If you buy one of the fake XHoses try and return it safely for your money back or open a case.
This X-Hose I am selling is genuine and comes of course with the blue Hozelock style connector on it and with all the original instructions showing clearly it was originally supplied by High Street TV.
I bought a job lot of these Xhoses from a trade auction house which sells items which have been ordered from online retailers and have been returned under the distance selling regulation as unwanted or change of mind or they have been sent to an address that the buyer no longer lives at and have been returned and unclaimed. The E-Retailers do not have the time to inspect every item returned to them for damage or if they have been used and so cannot guarantee them as new to sell to another customer so they are sold off.
I am in the process of checking each one of the hoses I have bought. Some are in original boxes/packaging although most of the boxes are damaged and others have no boxes with them. I am checking each hose for any damage or sign of being used and I am listing all the new ones on Ebay All the ones I list will be unused new Xhoses and I will replace the packaging which may be scruffy but each Xhose I sell will come with the full set of instructions showing the BIG BOSS (manufacturer) X-Hose from High street TV as shown in the item pictures. I have also got a limited number of the optional 1/2 inch tap adaptors (shown in pictures) which are in addition to the blue hozelock style connector which comes with the X-Hose for the watering end of the hose. I will include this additional tap adaptor free of charge (usual cost £4.99) with this Xhose.
So the usual retail price for this 75ft 22.5metre Xhose is £69.99 + tap adapter @ £4.99(+£2 postage) is £76.98.
Also please note that while this is called a 22.5 metre 75ft XHose the manufacturer states your hose should expand up to this size and up to can mean any length up to 75ft. So if you have low water pressure in your area like my parents have then your hose may not expand to the maximum length. This is not a fault, its bad water pressure from your tap and if you flush the toilet or run a bath etc then it will not expand very much at all.
I will also ship this out to the winning bidder with a secure tracked courier due to its value so please consider the postage charges when bidding.
