Insulated hose pipe hose reel cover.

Anybody know where I can get a tea cosy for my hose reel?

Only sites I can find offer fire resistant cover or actually electrically heated covers.

I just want a well insulated cover which is also waterproof.

Cheers.

Could there be any other reason bar the obvious?

Trying to think of one..

Purely to keep it functional.

Anybody seen one anywhere?

Modify a sleeping bag ?


Maybe they don't do one because the weather in which you would need to use it is not the sort of weather you should be spraying water about .

Maybe there is some sort of commercial solution , rather than consumer ?

Reason I asked is even if the hose diddnt freeze, the tap or the water entering the tap would freeze anyway.

There are a couple if commercial uses yes but they are silly pricey and OTT with built in heating etc.

We use ours daily in all weather, cleaning dogs feet wellies etc.

Sometimes that's the case for sure, but often we find our diy lagging on the tap ensures it works but the water left in the hose has frozen.

I'm not sure that just insulation would work on a hose reel - insulation/lagging only slows down the change in temperature as it naturally tends towards the outside temperature. There's nothing to actually keep it above freezing. A hose is long and thin so you'd have to do quite a lot to keep that from freezing which is probably why the commercial ones you've found are electronically heated.

I had composed a reply to this thread earlier with a couple of links.

My Internet is too bad to start searching again but I found a few products withinh caravan inch supplies

Aquaroll insulated covers if I remember correctly.

You might be better off getting an enclosed hose reel and using a boiler condensate heating wire though.

Ours is attached to the wall outside where we have a "cleaning" area, it's used twice a day, it wouldn't be convenient opening up the garage all the time and so forth.
