When reeling in 19mm garden hose filled with water it is considerably heavier than when winding in 12.5mm garden hose. It contains nearly 2.3 times more water, but with the increased size of hose it is effectively 3x times heavier to wind in over similar brand 12.5mm garden hose. You will need to walk back with the nozzle in your hand & then go back out to again to pull back in more hose to the reel from the loop so that you reduce the winding load effort. Otherwise you will be fighting to stop the reel wanting to be dragged out along the hose as you attempt to wind it in. This is why you don't see many 19mm hoses wound onto reels. In commercial use such as nurseries, swimming pool centres, dairies, car yards etc, normally the hose is either tucked away along a garden edge, against a wall or fence-line or even hand coiled into a large diameter coil on the ground in an appropriate place.

Hints about water flow in pipes:
- Water flow (litres per hour) is dependant on both diameter of the pipe and the head pressure of the water supply at the tap.
- Narrow pipes of say 12.5mm ID (internal diameter) need very high pressure of say 700kpa to get acceptable flow through any pipe over 30m -50m length. There is substantial swirling friction created by the pipe wall within which reduces flow (not the pressure)
- Larger diameter pipes & hose pipes of 18 or 19mm will allow double the flow compared to 12.5mm ID pipes as there is no internal swirling down the centre of the pipe which impedes the flow. Water is able to be pushed undisturbed straight down the centre.
