What is the best way to store 2 water hoses?

I need it easy and compact. Thanks.

Everyone has an idea as what's best for them.
I store mine in a tub with holes cut in the top (to dry if wet) coiled and the ends attached.

Typically, with both ends disconnected.

I disagree.

Connect the ends of the hoses together to keep crud out.

If it was a funny, it went over my head, too. I just didn't get the "connection".

It definitely had my head going in "circles".

I agree with the tub. I'm assuming you mean you attach the ends of the hose together. How would it ever dry like that? If I did that in our heat, I would have stuff growing in the hose in short order (I know from experience). I use the tub to keep crud out of the hose and bleach them both occasionally.

I will sanitize my hose this spring at the same time I do my TT's plumbing.

The water hose is nothing more than an extension of my TT's plumbing. I see no need to do anything more to the hose than I do to the rest of the plumbing system. If it's ok to leave water in the pipes, it's ok to leave it in the hose.

I screwed a regular wall hose holder, from Lowes, to the inside of the basement. It holds both my long and short hose.
