How to store plastic hose
The storage room must be cool and dry with good vent. High ambient temp above +45℃ have no air flow. Thus it may cause deform plastic hoses. Please note that this temp will reach when exposed to direct sunlight, even within the hose reel. The stacking height must adapts to the respective product and ambient temp. Hose reels carry a higher weight in summer temp and may deform. Besides, it is important to ensure that the hose is free of tension. Therefore, it does not create stress, pressure or other stresses. Because tension can promote permanent deformation and cracking. For outdoor storage, you should never expose plastic hoses to direct sunlight. The package must not seal the hose reel. In another hand, protect your hose from UV and ozone.

Therefore, at high temp, the stack height during transport must be lower than during storage. You should never throw, run over or step on plastic hoses. Of course, you should never drag it on the ground. Because that will. This can lead to damage to the outer layer. And the spiral may become deformed or even completely shattered.
