For anyone who thinks this hose hanger is too small, it’s because they are using it to hang a traditional garden hose. This hose hanger has “expandable hose,” “pocket hose,” “shrinking hose” in the description, and the Amazon photo shows it holding an expandable hose. I have a 100 foot expandable hose, and this is plenty large enough to hold that. My only problem is there is an obstruction below the faucet that makes it hard for me to hang as it was designed — not the fault of the hanger. I had to improvise and hang it above the faucet. It works exactly as it should.
The thermometer read over 100 °F, and it’s not that hot here, so I took out my trusty infrared thermometer and double checked. While it’s only in the 70s outside, the sun’s rays were hitting the thermometer directly and heating it up. I aimed the infrared thermometer on the hanger’s thermometer and it was indeed over 100 °F. If you are getting a reading that appears off, this may be the problem. To get a better reading, I would need to hang it in the shade. I don’t think I’ll do that, though. I bought this for the hose hanging, not the temperature gauge.
