I used this to wash the exterior windows on my house, and it made the job quick and easy! Attached to a regular garden hose with no problem. I love that I can adjust the soap to water ratio. After cleaning the windows I used diluted bleach to wash moss and ick off of a painted concrete patio, then after a thorough rinsing I used it to spray vinegar/salt solution over all the cracks in my driveway to kill weeds. Tomorrow I'll probably just add some regular dish soap and wash my car. Some reviews said they had issues with leaks, so I was expecting the seal to be only so-so but I had no issues whatsoever. Another cool feature is that when you pull the "trigger" it locks in the open position so your hand doesn't cramp up when using this for extended periods of time. When you're ready to close off the water flow you just pull the trigger and it releases smoothly.
I just received the nozzle and can’t speak to durability. I plan to use it for a second hose location at home. I like almost everything I find expect that its trigger operates opposite the one I’ve been using for years at the first hose location. On the new one, you pull the lever back to turn it on, forward to stop water. I’m used to it being the other way and it will require thinking to operate, especially having two operating differently. I can’t call this a fault, but now I wonder times I’ll be squiring things (and myself) unexpectedly.
Mine works great. I know other people had problems with the ‘shower’ feature and the on/off slider, but mine totally works. I have had nozzles in the past (different brands) that had both those problems, so I just assumed it was part of the nozzle-lottery. But so far (week one) no problems at all, all settings work great, slider works as it should, doesn’t leak, doesn’t need rubber rings, easy to install.
Lightweight and easy to hold. Only thing I don’t care for is the position of the on/off lever. Awkward to me to have the thumb lever up for off. The lever being down for off makes for a more comfortable hold and control for me instead of having to reposition my hand or having to Involve a second hand. This sprayer replaces another one I have had for a while, so maybe I find the new one awkward due to the thumb lever being down for off on my old one
It's hard to rate this item so soon. It seems that every brand of water sprayer that I have purchased over the years ends up breaking or falling apart after the first few months of usage. So, to be fair, yes, so far I like the way this sprayer works. Definitely more comfortable than most to hold. But as far as durability, time will tell....
I love this new handle for our outdoor garden hose. The one we had was very old and it was nearly impossible to turn off unless water was shut at the source. The thumb release on this makes it so easy to turn on and off and with the correct amount of pressure...lighter for my flowers, stronger for my large bushes. I ordered a second one for my front yard!
This hose nozzle does everything that it should. The spray patterns all work, and the handle is comfortable to hold. I prefer this style that turns on the water with the lever, rather than the pistol grip that you have to squeeze.
Have only used this a few times now but it seems so much better than the standard cheap nozzles we usually buy and break easily. Kids throw them down on the grass and they either turn on as the handle was pushed or a small piece of plastic breaks off. This nozzle uses a different way to turn the water on and it’s great! I hope it lasts years to come.
I like this sprayer. It's not heavy duty, but it is well made and should last a long time if you're reasonably gentle with it. Functionally it's great. I have bigger sprayers, but for small jobs this is perfect. The additive container is easy to take off, fill, and reassemble. Attach it to a hose and you're ready to go.
I got this nozzle to replace one I bought last year. So far so good. I like the up and down toggle instead of the ones that require you to depress a handle. I can't speak to it's durability since I just started using it, but it feels like a sturdier nozzle than the one I bought at a hardware store last summer.
Two of our other nozzles self destructed at about the same time. I ordered these two replacements without my wife's knowledge. When she found out they were metal, she expressed concern that they would be too hot to pick up after being out in the sun. We live in Arizona. We were delighted that this was not an issue and they work great!
I love that this nozzle has a sliding bar rather than a pull trigger. I have RA, so sometimes my grip isn't that great and it the trigger nozzle hurts my hands. Also, this new one works better than my old nozzle, and it is a higher quality. I would give this more than 5 stars if I could.
I bought this hose nozzle to replace an old, leaky one and I couldn't be happier. Not only was it a huge jump in quality from what I was using, but the thumb control spray design is much easier on the hands after a few minutes of spraying. I'm very happy with my purchase!
This looks nice and works very well. I later found other options that look to be the very same sprayers for far less money, however, so shop and compare before you buy.
Washing your car at home, feeding that beautiful lawn your fertilizer, or just needing to give your water a flow rate of a strem to a fine mist, to a shower or a soaker then this nozzle is for you, and it is for me.
I have just received this so I cannot rate the durability, but I love it. It is so easy to use and I appreciate not having to constantly squeeze a handle. This is my second one of this style. The other is on my backyard hose and still perfect after 3+ years.
Much easier to hold on the grip. The thumb volume is great, you can adjust it slighty or high.
We were excited to get a nozzle that had a slide option. It has a comfortable handle and is easy to slide. We added a bit of Vaseline to help with the water seal. So far so good.
I really like this nozzle. The ergonomics of the handle and on/off is very easy and doesn't "gum" up like the normal rod-pull ones. Thank you.
This is of a different type from what we used to have. And we like it. Has good flow of water on all settings and is easy to handle.
