Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chipturtle Nice spray and no leaks
I got a new Scotts garden hose and did not have a new nozzle so I got this and I
am so glad I did. It is a nice nozzle for around the house jobs. Washing your car,
watering flowers and plants even cleaning out your gutters.
It is a rear trigger and it is not real hard to press. If you are washing your car or
hosing down anything where you have to hold the handle for any length of time just
flip down the lever and it will hold the handle down. That saves on your hand and is a
I have usually bought the nozzles that you twist on and off so thought I would try this
one and I am sure glad I did.
Just let up off the handle on this one instead of having to twist or turn the nozzle on
the other types. Just a feature that is more convenient to me since I have arthritis
in my hands.
It nozzle is a Melnor brand.
It has different spray adjustments. Just turn the black rubber band at the end of the
nozzle for what ever spray you like. From a wide spray to a stream. Very easy to adjust.
The nozzle is made of hard plastic for the trigger and lined in metal for a sturdy made
nozzle. The tip where the water comes out is made of brass and also the back of the
nozzle is brass.
Nice well made threads inside where you connect it to your water hose. It screwed on
easy with no problems.
Overall it is a nice well made nozzle that will last a long time with the proper use.
Fits your hose nice with no leaks so far. I hate when the nozzle springs a leak and you
water goes spewing all over you and you have to lean way out to keep from getting wet
when using the water hose.
This nozzle has nice deep metal threads so it goes on snug and helps prevents leakage.
So if you need a nice water hose nozzle well made that does the job it is intended to do
this would be on my list of one of the ones to get.

This nozzle is only marginally better than the less-expensive all plastic version, or simply holding your thumb over the end of the garden hose.The spray pattern adjustment is poor, when adjusted to a fine spray it cast a very wide coverage area (see picture), when adjusted to a heavy spray, it still sprayed water over a rather wide range, but would not provide a forceful concentrated stream of water (see picture). I look at this as a "throw-away" type of product, inexpensive enough to simply discard when it leaks or falls apart. Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed.

So I've purchased several of the Melnor sprayers and every one has failed after a very short time of service, the last one I purchased 3/7/16 and used it several times and it failed in 2 days, what fails is the plastic trigger where it pulls the shaft out to release the water, the plastic is so thin that after a few pulls it opens up and slips past the shaft, so what ive been doing is installing a screw to make it work! you would think, something so simple as a garden hose water sprayer, would be 1 of the last things anyone would write a review about>

Went to use it this spring and right off the bat a leak sprung near the bottom of the nozzle where the metal meets the plastic. Not long after the actual handle snapped rendering it completely dead in the water (heh).

Purchased this to keep on my pool deck hose. It works just fine for my uses.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by justbombs Sturdy hose nozzle
Sturdy hose nozzle, and easy to turn it on with the front trigger. The adjustable tip nozzle is user friendly though the adjustment can be tedious when done with wet hands. I like its adjustable width, force, and reach.The grip is comfortable to hold and adjustable, plus it can be locked open. The nozzle screws onto the hose securely and has a washer to eliminate any leaking, nor does it leak from the head.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Diannajh lightweight and painfree
This is a simple, but effective sprayer. I only gave it 4 stars because it doesn't do well on the hard stream, I have other things that work better. That being said, it does awesome on the lighter sprays to use for flowers and trees, it has a great distance on fuller sprays and it is delicate enough of a spray that it doesn't spray the dirt everywhere. I have arthritic thumbs (awesome) and this was easy to use because you can prop it to many flow speeds, it is a great lightweight sprayer, as long as you don't need it to hard spray things off.

Inexpensive but effective. It does adjust the stream of water and can be locked in place. Doesn't have all the bells and whistles of some of the other nozzles but gets the job done. No problem with leakage. Great buy for the money.
