So you know. I might have figured this out from pictures or description, but it did not occur to me they would not be threaded together. Just makes it less versatile. Functions fine as it is.
Great product, perfect for watering just at the base of my plants.
Very nice product. Will work nicely for regular watering of large plants in large pots. Very convienent one-handed on and off. But be aware of one significant potential problem. The touch valve is either full on or full off. There is no feathering the valve to allow a trickle of water or a more delicate flow of water. As you slowly depress the handle, it will come to a point where it simply and suddenly turns on full open. This means you cannot water any plant that will be harmed with a full blast of water. My greenhouse has plants/pots of all sizes. I had hoped this wand would allow me to drench some larg pots and delicately trickle water into the pots of small plants. Not possible. After just a few days, I am back to using the old fashioned combination of a normal wand, with a screw-on on/off valve. This allows me to control the amount of water coming out of the wand. Can't control these Touch N' Flows. They are either full on, or full off. So be aware so you can decide if this wand is right for your watering purposes.
The wand works great in the beginning. The handle sits well in the hand and the lever is easy to operate. The water flow is excellent and it does a great job watering plants. Over time though the valve begins to leak and there's no way to fix it. The valve oring lies is a thin press-sealed alluminum shell which makes it not serviceable. Underneath the molded in place grip, is a cast aluminum housing that is thin with many imperfections and rough surfaces. Even the oring mating surface is rough. Design flaws limit the useful life if this tool to 2-3 years max.
When you pull up the handle it engages a small valve on the wand that lets the water flow. That valve leaks badly. It was OK for three seasons of home/deck watering, then got gradually worse. It has to be thrown out now. Made in USA? We can do better than that!
Very good quality wand. It would be excellent with the 170 breaker. However, the internal parts of the valve are too small, and it drastically reduces water flow with the 400 breaker. I wish Greenhouse Megastore carried the same wand without the valve. It IS available. I have been using my 400AL breaker attached directly to the hose.
The wand is good. Since I select a wrong bend for my use I am not happy and can't use it as much as I want.
Very well made. Bestwatering tool I have everowned. would recommend itto anyone.
This is a professional grade quality product such as is used in commercial greenhouses and garden centers. A good value!
the rain wand at present performs well as advertised....concerned of long term durability...aluminum tubing is light, but easily bent and the male hose end is also relatively light duty....would like to see a heavier duty model acknowledging there would be a weight increase....thanks
