Best nozzle you can buy bar none.
July 11, 2016
I read one review that stated this nozzle was too large for a standard hose operating on standard pressure. How wrong can this be. This hose when the nozzle is cranked all the way out will indeed act like a normal brass nozzle shooting water out over 40 feet. But that is not what you want when auto detailing. You want a large flow of water with no splash back so you can flood the surface with rinse water before it dies. With the handle pushed forward, water is completely shut off, and when pulled back the steam returns to the pattern set prior to shut off. You can therefore adjust the flow pattern to an umbrella shaped high volume flow, grab the hose in one hand with thumb on the shut off lever, wash rag in the other hand and soap down with right hand. Before the soap dries, as in bright sun, flip the large shut off on the nozzle with thumb on left hand and rinse. The quick shut off and shut on feature without changing the water flow allow full use of both hand without having to set the wash rag or hose down and conserves water . This high volume flow allows for very rapid removal of soapy water and quick shut off while using the other hand to continue soaping down the project. But, this is only the start of the nozzle's usefulness. Try it out on delicate flowers set at max flow low force umbrella spray pattern to quickly soak down the flower bed without knocking the pedals off delicate plants, or holding the hose with nozzle hanging down while walking the yard to quickly soak those brown spots in the lawn. Not only is this a detailers dream but a landscapers,gardeners must. It has a tremendous range of adjustment for flow and is desired a strong jet of spray for distance.
Pros:Great for saving on water with its quick off on feature while not affecting the spray pattern as is common requirement on a standard brass spay nozzles. Heavy construction for what appears to be a lifetime lasting tool.
Cons:Due to its quality and function I now will have to buy too many more for gift for my very special friends. Father in law is up next on the list. He loves growing flowers and gardening.
