Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ShannonF Waters...and then never stops
The plus side is that this is a nice length of extension and when the water is coming out, it's coming out as intended. Problem is, you can't shut it off. You can try, but you'll fail...that is, unless you want to schlep back to the spigot and shut the water off completely. The thing just drips heavily in the off position. Oh well. I should have known with the price!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AZGardener Less than gentle
I really wanted to like this wand. It was an upgrade from the last one I bought, since it has an easy on/off squeeze handle and a cushion grip, but it sprays terribly. The inner valve is problematic because I can't get it to open fully and get enough water pressure to diffuse the water through the end of the wand - it just runs out in a single stream. To make matters worse, the locking mechanism, when stowed, means I can't fully compress the handle (and it is always flipping back to that position). Terrible, terrible, terrible.

I go thru 3 or 4 of these each year. For the cost, they are ok for a couple of months but start leaking thru the valve around then. I would like to have a wand that last a few years. I've had at least a dozen .Love them for awhile then hate them. Buy another.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MaureenK Best watering wand I've ever used
Really impressed with this watering wand in large part due to the size of the spray head. There's a concentration of holes, and not such a wide spray so you can get in between stems and leaves. Good ergonomic design and wish I had ordered this last year as I would have saved myself from having to stand on a step stool and use a watering can to water our plants that hang from a pergola off our porch. It really does have a gentle spray as advertised. Highly recommended.

I use this daily, its description is perfect, it gives a gentle rain shower. It has adjustable flow, good reach and is durable. I prefer using this for all watering because it is easy to gauge the volume of water applied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FarmYourYard A better option than the other wands
This wand puts out far more water than the other Gilmour sprayers. I have two of the short wands with the adjustable heads and this is a much better choice for everything around the garden. I was surprised to find how much water they pump out, it's like a soft shower. The adjustable knob is good for reducing the flow and size to water small pots. At full strength, it can water a 15 gallon pot in 10 seconds without blasting away the top layer of soil. Only had it a month, a previous Gilmour adjustable wand broke at the knob, hopefully this will last longer.
