It's rugged hose material presents kinks and best of all its retractable reel unwinds and wines the hoes easily keeping it out of the way but always within close reach. Though many manufacturers offer hose reels, the range from T&S provides the highest quality, the most reliability, and a broad selection of features and benefits. We offer both open and close designs incorporating a smooth rolled edge on our drums to keep hoses or anything else from catching on them. We've engineer special roller guides to reduce goes wear and crafted the reel arm so it can adjust to 8 different convenient positions. Antilock out is standard on all of our models as is the finest and finishes, either stainless steel or are durable epoxy coated steel. Even the T&S fittings are in a class by themselves with a brass will bowl and a stainless steel shaft to ensure long life as well as Nitrol seals on the swivel and a canonized spring for safer replacement. At T&S we always aim to make the finest most innovative products we can just to be sure though we put our hose reels through rigorous testing. The results showed that T&S hose reels perform well in every single category including spring live, structural strength, swivel life, paint finish, and hose life. We've even documented the strength life tests. When we say reliability built in, we mean it! We make installing a T&S hole reel simple. All our hose reels are sent to you with proper tension and in ready to install condition. We have the option of choosing a mounting position after you've received your hose reels. Those options or wall mount, floor mount, and ceiling mount. And we include amounting diagram that you can use as a template for pre drilled holes. Ensure that your fasting location is suitable for holding the reel and then attached the real using the mounting position you've chosen. For maximum safety, always install a hose reel with two people. This eliminates the risk of holding a heavy reel while trying to attach it at the same time. Once the real was mounted in place, connect the swivel inlet to a water source with flexible hose. While hose reels themselves, especially those from T&S, are quite solid the inlet connection can be shaken or jar during operation and a flexible hose keeps those pumps from becoming a source of damage or leaks. In fact, if you use a hard pipe installation it will void your warranty. Since back flow can contaminate the water supply and since code now requires it you must install the proper backflow prevention. We recommend that T&S B-0963 Vacuum Breaker Unit which provides superior back flow prevention for continuous pressure applications and which also protects its surrounding areas with a patented spill resistant design. If you should ever need to replace the hose on your T&S hole reel follow these simple instructions. First, disconnect the water supply. Pull the hose out to a locked position and remove the bumper. Then unlock the hose and released the tension from the reel. Remove the hose from the reel then remove the two hose clamps. Next, disconnect the swivel. Take your new hose and apply Teflon tape to its swivel. Attach the hose to the hose reel swivel then feed the hoes through the slot in the drum. Tighten the hose clamps to the reel. Finish installing the hose onto the reel. To increase the tension, pull the hose out one or two full turns and locker it. Wrap those revolutions around the reel. This should be sufficient tension for normal operation. Finish by attaching the hose bumper to the hose. If you ever need to replace the swivel follow these directions. Disconnect the water supply. And remove all tension from the reel. Then disconnect the hose that's attached to the swivel and remove the swivel itself by loosening the hex end. Then simply reverse the procedure by taking your new swivel attaching it with the hex end, resetting the tension on your hose, and connecting the supply hose to your new swivel. T&S hose reels of a wide array of accessories that can optimize them for performance. A swing bracket allows your wall mount reel to move smoothly on an arc from side to side. A pivot bracket gives your floor or ceiling mounted hose reel flexibility of movement by allowing it to rotate or spin for maximum convenience.
