You can feel the quality of this water nozzle as soon as you put it in your hand. It feels solid. Unlike some others that feel like they’re going to break if you drop it. Also, the different settings are awesome. I can gently water my delicate plants but also I can shoot a jet to clean a walkway. I like it.

    Broke within 6 months
    this thing is really well built EXCEPT for a fatal flaw. The whole thing feels sturdy, and then these morons used a plastic valve control. My plastic valve control broke in half during normal use.

      Not worth the money
      I’ve always bought the cheap $1-2, this time I decided to splurged and went with the $20 one. Broke four months after purchase of light if any use… it’s heavy, all metal EXCEPT THE TRIGGER! EXTREMELY FLIMSY PLASTIC stay away.

        The plastic screw in the middle broke off. I used only one month wasted my money

          Thumb Control Broke
          Had nozzle for less then a year and the plastic thumb control completely broke off when I tried to turn it off. Would never suggest anyone buy it.

            lasted 2 seasons with light use
            Title says it all. Didnt even get 3 seasons of use. The plastic pivot unit that runs through it just popped out for no reason wouldnt go back in and basically defective. Its unfortunate but the reality is everything made these days is just utter crap. Best to buy cheapest u can and know u might get one sesson out of it. Not worth it to spend more.

              Lever Broke
              Bought last year. The most used part of the product made of plastic which broke off. Apparently the actual turning mechanism is too stiff for the plastic lever to hold up. Should have been made of metal.

                Just received better quality replacement product
                I previously bought a similar unit with a flimsier thumb control that broke after only 3 months. Manufacturer just sent me a replacement product that is vastly improved. Images show both old and new version.

                  Defective Nozzle and H2O to the Face
                  I bought 3 nozzle which had 3 different defect for each nozzle. Contacted Melnor’s customer service and did not receive an apology. They offered a cheaper replacement. Horrible business practice. Here is a video of the defective nozzle which sprayed in my toddler face. https://giphy.com/gifs/cNn8fwD2CkU4s4sbO3

                    Leaks at the shut off valve
                    It started leaking on the left side of the shut off. See picture. Purchased at Home Depot but I do not have the receipt. Approximately 1 year old.

                      Thumb control breaks easily
                      Bought two of these in May. By September both of them are rendered useless because the thumb control broke off under normal use. Really poor quality.

                        Crap Construction
                        Love the design, with the thumb adjustable flow valve. I liked it so much I bought two... BUT, the main valve internally is all cheap plastic. Only used lightly since May, and by early September, it's toast. I would have happily paid more money for a legit 'heavy duty' nozzle with a brass ball valve instead of plastic.

                          Leaks badly
                          Seemed heavy and well made. Might have lasted a year or two. The packaging says Lifetime Warranty. Home Depot will not honor the warranty.......you must go back to the manufacturer. On the manufacturer's website, it says in numerous places that you MUST have the original purchase receipt to get a replacement. I did not have the receipt from the purchase 1 or 2 years ago......so I bought a new one. After one week, the cap blew out the side and it leaks profusely. Will head over to Home Depot to see if they will replace a 1 week old purchase.

                            Started severely leaking within a coupe of days
                            I bought this because if felt well made and had lots of spray options. I brought it home and used it one day. They next day it would leak, just a little out of whichever spray setting I had it set to. The next day, I turned it on, used it and then flip the valve to shut it off. Water kept coming out like I was watering a plant. Does this on the Mist and Sweep modes. All other modes shut off fine. I'm going to Home Depot tomorrow to exchange it. Will see how the second one does. Will update my review accordingly.

                                Spray nozzle leaks after 3 months
                                I bought this to use on my deck to water my deck garden and I started noticing a few weeks ago that the nozzle was always sitting in a little pool of water when I would go out and use it, but just thought it was excess water left in the nozzle after use. So I decided to hang it on the deck railing and discovered it is a constant drip or stream depending on the spray pattern selected. I love this nozzle I every other way except for the constant water loss. I so wanted to be able to give this a 5 star rating

                                  O-ring nozzle seal dislodges
                                  This sprayer feels sturdy and solid, the cast body has a nice epoxy coated finish, but there’s a fatal design flaw: a week after we bought it I can feel the rubber O-ring that couples the body to the rotating nozzle has dislodged, making this leak profusely at the selector joint. I cannot find any way to open it for repair. The packaging says lifetime warranty and I hope the replacement doesn’t do the same thing.

                                    Broke within a year. The $5 one I bought this to replace lasted longer.

                                      Thumb control valve broke on first drop
                                      Dropped the nozzle a week after purchasing the nozzle in the driveway and the thumb control broke and I got a nice free shower on a hot summer day. The thumb control should be made out of aluminum like the main body, but it's unfortunately made out of plastic and clearly not impact resistant. The other negative is that the shower pattern is biased towards the center unlike Melnor's much cheaper 5-pattern nozzle (model 301-416), which has an even shower pattern and has lasted me four years so far.

                                        Cheap. Lasted 2 months
                                        This nozzle felt well made when purchased, however after less than 2 months of moderate use it started leaking like crazy around the spray selector. Then at 3 months the plastic lever to turn the water on failed. Shoots you in the face as soon as you turn the hose on.

                                          Broke down after only a year of light use
                                          Thought I was getting a higher quality product because it had a "durable" feel off the shelf, but it turned out to be a bunch of bulldung. There's now a pinhole leak along one side of the alloy metal shaft and the seal around the rotation mechanism failed. Most of the water now gushes out of the seam that connects to the dial mechanism. Will need to find a better built brand.

                                            Leaking nozzle less than 1 year old
                                            Purchased in August 2019. Very satisfied until nozzle started leaking this month. Very heavy duty head with good water flow and I love the toggle since it's easier for arthritic hands. Was expecting longer life out of this item.

                                                Thumb nozzle broke when turning off water. It was replaced by Melnor and the replacement broke about 1 month later. Poor design that the thumb nozzle has plastic because that is what broke both times.

                                                    Cheap plastic/rubber thumb control broke after 2 months
                                                    2 months ago almost to the day I bought this to replace a cheaper plastic nozzle that broke and because it felt sturdy to the grip, didn't feel cheap. I was wrong. While using it to wash my car, I noticed a little give - turning off/on half way through the cleaning, the entire thumb control just broke off. Too bad because the the head feels strong and turns very solidly - has just what I need. I had assumed surely the most used moving part must be sturdier or have some metal to support it. Bad Design. Now it's useless, except if I want to just rely on my hose attachment to turn water flow on/off.

                                                      It leaked the first time we hooked it up. It does have a good spray but I didn’t want it to leak like the one we were replacing. We return this one to the store.

                                                      Wish I could give it 0 stars!
                                                      Bought 2 of these $14 each. Lasted 2 weeks. Both broke in the exact same spot, where the spray controller bar ties into the assembly. Plastic crap inside. Looks robust on the outside. Buyers beware. I want my money back

                                                        Shut off junk
                                                        This spray nozzle seemed heavy duty when I purchased it a month ago. The plastic shut off lever snapped off. I would not recommend this sprayer because of that.

                                                          Love the design, however it leaks from any setting.
                                                          Not worth the extra money. Mine leaks like the rest who have written their complaint here. Purchased mine about 6 months and it started leaking after month 2. I should have returned it within the 90 days, but am just busy.
