I've read tons of posts on Hide a Hose here on this forum and I'm totally convinced. We want to go ahead and rough it in and do the rest later when we have the money. Did anyone else do it this way? If so, what did your builder charge? Did

I'm curious if anyone has installed a HAH themselves? If so, what side did you purchase materials from? Also, I remember a thread that talked about another hose-free option (or at least a lugging the hose around the hose free option). Does an

I googled this and did a search just on this forum but didn't find much. Anyone have any advice to give between the two? Are they pretty much the same except for how they store and retract the hose? Thanks for the information!
