Thank you for responding... We do not have a shut off for the spicket, the only shut off we have is for the entire house. Is this uncommon? Thank you for your suggestions I guess we have learned the hard way. I am still puzzled how the hose being placed on the reel caused this pipe to bust. The spicket is on the side of the house that would allow drainage. The hose itself did not suffer any damage it is the carpet and walls that are a mess.
