Picking out the best buy for your money and for functionality is not as simple as just going to the store and grabbing the first rotary clothes airer you see. You should take time to consider each product and its features. Here are some of the features you may find in a clothesline:
Adjustable Height: Many rotary washing lines have an adjustable height. This way you can hang your clothes at you desired level for ease in reaching them.
Line Length: Having clotheslines that are long enough to put your clothes on is important. Also, you have to have the correct amount of space for your washing line in your yard. I would say a good length is between 40-50m.
Load Level: This is the capacity weight that your rotary washing line can hold. If you are a single person you may not need a high weight limit. However, if you are washing clothes for you and your family, you may want to check out the weight limits before purchasing.
Ground Spike: Most rotary lines have a ground spike to help you fix into the ground. This spike helps to anchor your rotary line.
Cover (accessory): Some rotary lines will come with a cover that you can use when not in use. This protects the rotary line from damage caused by wind and other types of weather.
Weatherproof: Washing lines are typically meant for outside. With that being said, you want a washing airer that will withstand different types of weather and be treated sufficiently to sustain wet, cold and even hot weather.
Durability: These clothes airers come with different metal poles that have different levels of durability. Typically a good rotary washing line will have durable aluminium poles, however, poles can be made it other materials. Just check to make sure that the poles and line seem to be durable, you can typically tell when you are buying cheap quality.
