Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CarlPerkins Great watering device for hanging plants! Truly is Gentle Rain!
Some things in life are so simple and yet so very useful. That describes this product. If you have plants hanging under your patio or tree or wherever, this device is SOOOOOOOO useful! It truly puts out a gentle rain of water - just like its title. It is just the right length and delivers a stream of rain-like water. It is so gentle on your plants in how it delivers the water - it caresses the plants. Such a pleasure to use. There ya go.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keith Nice tool.
This is my 3rd wand style tool and I really enjoy using it. Simple, no bells and whistles. Easy to use flow control at your finger tips. Easy to take apart and unclog if necessary. Light weight and built with quality material. This is one of those garden tools that will last for years. I really like Melnor products as they are built with quality material.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gearz Gentle Like A Watering Can
The wand is well made and does a great job at not damaging my wife's flowers because the end piece is large so it reduces water pressure to make a gentle sprinkle. The end cap can be removed to clean out any water deposits plus the trigger can lock and there is a dial if you want even less water pressure. I would not suggest this wand for cleaning a deck or walkway that would require more pressure but for gardening use it's great.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by decguy some good features but needs some improvement. ok for cheap
I realize this is a pretty economical watering wand and is not much in $$. The quality of the build is actually pretty decent and the fact that it is very light but still solid is a plus. The water valve is stiff at first but I've had many of these and that is typical and I don't detract anything for that. It is nice that the head screws off to allow easy cleaning if you get debris in the head since many of these don't do this. That is a good touch. And the materials seem solid even though lightweight especially at the low price. That said, though the water stream out of it was too weak for my tastes. If you have higher water pressure and want a very gentle stream maybe this might be perfect. Or if you have some very delicate plants and need water directly on them maybe it would be OK. My water pressure is "fair" but the flow out of this is just too weak compared to another wand I have using the same hose and same flow rate. I suspect the reason for this is the smaller tubing used. Note how much smaller in diameter it is compared to the other wand I have that has stronger flow. I had thought this might be a nice change because it is lighter and we have a LOT of plants to water every day an dragging around less weight might be good. But the low flow rate might just mean watering will take longer. Since it takes over an hour now that is not desirable for me. For the low price the value is fair but it is just not what I expect from such a tool. I think some minor changes (tube size) could make this a much better tool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KN07 Great tool for a rain-like watering
I'm really happy with this product. After attaching it to the hose, you can use the trigger to turn it on, then there is a dial to adjust the strength of the water. Even the highest level isn't so strong that it would hurt the plants. It's pressure at it's highest is like a strong rain, for maybe more durable plants. For seedlings, simple turn the pressure down and you can give it more of a light watering (not a mist, just less water coming out at once).
I'm very happy with this product, the handle is easy to hold and doesn't tire my hand out like a traditional nozzle. I would definitely recommend it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jim Good for watering hanging baskets
I bought this for my wife, who is picky about a gentle head to water her hanging baskets and garden. The head is perfect and the length works nicely for her. The only problem is that sometimes the hand trigger leaks. This can be countered somewhat by using the shut off valve, but the leaking trigger ruins an otherwise perfect tool.

This has been just what I was needing. It helps me with the higher pots.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by oldVermonter nice enough, but some flaws
When I garden, I care how my tools function. But I also care how they look. This unit has a nice, sleek appearance.
It's light-weight, which is very helpful considering you'll be holding it arm's-length sometimes.
The hose connection doesn't leak at all, and neither does the trigger grip, or the nozzle.
The trigger tends to jerk either all the way on, or all the way off. You can't easily it to control flow.
The flow control knob is very difficult to turn. I'm a pretty strong guy, and it takes me a lot of force to adjust it. Enough, unfortunately, that I tend not to use it at all.
