If you use a garden hose in your yard, this next Does it Work is for you.

Those hoses can be so hard to move around, and storing them can also be a pain as well. Now a new product says it's a cut above those other garden hoses.

KVUE's Quita Culpepper puts Pocket Hose to the test.

Hard to store, hard to handle, heavy hoses always end up tangled! The pocket hose promises to never give you these kinds of troubles. Just turn on the water and this hose is supposed to expand to 50 feet, and shrinks when it's done.

Do not drink from this hose the water in the hose may become contaminated and cause serious health affects.

When Quita unwinds the hose it doesn't seem long at all. The pocket hose is easy to attach to the outside spigot.

And when Quita turns the water on, "It expands alright. That's a lot of hose!"

And the pocket hose is easy to coil back up, and put it away. 

The pocket hose gets a thumbs up.

Pocket hose is available at Bed, Bath and Beyond and costs about $20.
