    Hmm. Scott must be a fireman - 450 ft. of hose -

    If Scott were a fireman, he'd know that a ladder would fall over if you try to drag a hose over it. If you make sure that there are no kinks or other obstructions, you can use your shoulder - just walk from one end to the other, lifting the hose over your shoulder as you go. Go relatively slowly, and repeat a time or two. That should get the job done!

    Yeah, yeah, I know, you're flirting with Scott - but I try so hard to keep things family friendly.[​IMG]

    But seriously, keeping the hose on the ground and moving the high point (my shoulder) has proven more effective for me because even one of those cheap "Insta-kink" hoses won't have a problem with either restricted air or water flow. If you stand still and drag the hose to you, you have hose piling up on the ground at your feet - which can kink.

    Bunny (who has been a professional gardener, but doesn't dig kinky hoses).

    See, I'm having trouble here with firemen, long hoses over shoulders, kinky hoses, and family friendly.
    I better just shut up. [​IMG]

    Several critter pens that are more then 50ft from a spigot. I am planing to dig in water lines to most pens that need them, and the garden also.
    Freeze proof will be the spigot of choice this go-around. [​IMG]

    I have two installed now and working on more

    Scott (who is da*n tired of draining hoses)

    Edit to add the pic.
