Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WLP Bought two, both broke less then 30 days
I bought 2, both separated in after after a few weeks of use. First week worked fine, second week began to be hard to turn, then front of the nozzle just blows off. Useless product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roadrunner Just keeps working!
I’ve had this nozzle on my garden hose for over two years and it has held up fine. The only problem I have run into is with a new hose I got that doesn’t allow the nozzle to screw down tight enough to prevent it from leaking at the connection. I suppose I could fix this with a washer but it’s not that big of a leak. Other than that, the nozzle still adjusts from mist to full stream without any issues. After two years of use, it's been a good value.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mike serious design issue
This nozzle reminded me of the brass nozzles my dad had when I was a kid. They were so rugged and had this wonderful feel because of the weight, so I bought it.
Unfortunately, the design is flawed in 2 major areas.
1. The tip screws onto the body with threads that are machined into it too deep so that the threads actually break off and the tip gets blown off by the water pressure.
2. Then the o-ring apparently fails and the only way you can replace it is if you somehow remove the rubber/plastic grip to get to a screw that allows you to get it apart.
There doesn't seem to be a way to get the rubber grip off without destroying it.
I sent a detailed email to the company explaining this and asking them for help but no one has gotten back to me.
It's one thing to produce a poorly designed product but another to continue to market it knowing the problems it has.
It should be obvious to the company based on the feedback from the reviews on this site.
p.s. If I wanted to call them I would have done that instead of sending an email so please don't respond here with the phone number, just respond to my email please.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gordo Not good with well water
I have a 2 1/2 acre homestead that is landscaped. I buy the nozzles to water my flower beds & shrubs. Unfortunately, I'm on a well that has a lot of minerals in the water. These minerals accumulate in the spiral threads of the nozzles & freezes them after 6 months. Soaking the nozzles in a vinegar-water solution works temporarily, but the problem occurs again. I buy thes brass nozzles because they're better than their plastic counterparts.

Nice weight, and it works perfectly. A good buy at a fair price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Orah Hose nozzle
This nozzle was a replacement for the exact same nozzle that sprang a leak in the side. On the one hand, that nozzle was less than three years old, and I would have expected it to last longer than that. On the other hand, right at the critical time when I would have brought the hose and nozzle in for the winter, I was undergoing surgery, and it slipped my mind, so they were both out all winter through rain, sleet, and snow.
The old nozzle was great, and that's why I bought another one just like it. It attaches/detaches easily, and it has the whole range of strength and distance for all my watering needs.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CTA Terrible product made worse by terrible, non-existent customer support
This nozzle looks nice, but within three months the barrels shot off both of the nozzles within days of each other. There is an O-ring lock in the base, but it is insufficient to hold the pieces together. It's a good thing there is a 7-year warranty--it's a bad thing that Orbit doesn't care to answer the phone, email, or pay any attention to its customers to honor it. I should have read the terrible reviews of both this product as well as the company that are posted by so many unhappy customers. It is obvious that the company profile online was written by a public relations firm with no bearing on product management, technical support, or sales support. The product is defective. The company appears to be, too.

Very good quality! The old saying you get what you pay for continues to be true.
