About Us

The history of the garden hose industry is a testament to the human spirit of innovation and the relentless pursuit of convenience. Primitive channels to carry water evolved into the heavy, unwieldy rubber hoses of the 19th century. Yet, this indispensable tool was often a source of frustration for homeowners and gardeners, due to its bulkiness and difficulty to manage.

This all changed in 2012 when the Pocket Hose emerged, a revolution in simplicity, portability, and efficiency that forever transformed the industry.

The Copper Bullet hose

The Pocket Hose, an expandable and retractable garden hose brand, was an instant game-changer. Its innovative design allowed it to expand when attached to a water faucet and smartly contract when not in use, solving the age-old storage problem.

Its super lightweight design made it a delight to handle and store, setting a new standard for garden hoses everywhere. Launched directly to consumers in 2012, the Pocket Hose quickly gained popularity and entered retail chains in 2013. Retail giants like Walmart, Home Depot, and more stocked it, with Walmart even selecting it as a Volume-Producing Item in 2013, signaling its resounding success.

Behind this revolutionary product is none other than spokesperson, Richard Karn. Famous for his role in the sitcom Home Improvement, Karn has been an enthusiastic supporter and champion of the Pocket Hose since 2013. His charismatic promotion significantly contributed to the brand's recognition and acceptance among consumers, propelling the Pocket Hose into millions of homes across the globe.

What set the Pocket Hose apart was not just its groundbreaking design, but also the brand's unwavering commitment to constant innovation. With each iteration, from PVC to copper anodized aluminum connectors, from single-layer design to a triple latex inner tube reinforced 3x stronger outer shell., the Pocket Hose became better, stronger, and more efficient. The newest iteration, the Copper Bullet, promises even greater strength and durability with its 650 psi capacity and larger connectors.

The Pocket Hose, now holding over 100 worldwide patents, has transformed the industry and highlighted the power of innovation. With over 50 million units sold, equivalent to over 2.5 billion feet of hose — enough to stretch to the moon and back — this unassuming garden tool has made a significant impact. The Pocket Hose story serves as an enduring reminder of the transformative power of innovation, persistence, and the human spirit, inspiring homeowners, gardeners, and retailers alike.
