Hozelock Multi Spray Pro Gun
Advantages: six seperate settings for watering , ergonomic handle .Used by professionals .
Disadvantages: Initial price
Everyone that is familiar with my reviews will know how passionate I am about my garden . My Hosepipe had been bought ,the nozzle on it was worse than useless , like a geriatric dribbler ( no offence intended ) but I wanted an attachment with all the bells and whistles to help me with the watering .
The Hozelock Multi Spray Pro gun wasn't my first choice , at £10.50 + £4.59 postage and packaging I thought it needed to be gold plated to be worth it .
I couldn't have been more wrong !
After the package was delivered I was concerned that I had been sent the wrong item .The box it came in was extremely heavy , surely too heavy to just be a hose pipe adapter .
On opening the box , inside I found the spray attachment for the reel I had purchased earlier in the year .May as well buy everything from the same manufacturer , at least I was guaranteed that it would fit .
The gun itself is grey and yellow ( Hozelock colours ) with a bright red trigger , which has two functions , the outer part of the sprayer is reminiscent of a shower head with a few extra adaptions .On the back side of the shower head is a grey grip which you turn to the different settings ( all have pictures ) ,of which there are six , Each setting is for a different use.
1st setting , called Jet can be used for cleaning cars , its a very strong flow , and not one I would recommend for watering plants with .It could prove useful for cleaning patios though .
2nd setting , called Fast Fill , can be used for filling up buckets or if you are a parent or Grandparent paddling pools for the kiddiewinks .Again not a setting I would necessarily use for watering the plants because of the heavy flow .
3rd setting , called the Mist setting , is one that should be used on plants , recommended for seedlings , as it does exactly what it says and gives a very fine mist of water .
4th setting , called gentle watering , again useful for watering plants this setting will give you the same kind of flow as a traditional hose pipe fitting .
5th setting , called fan spray , is recommended to be used for washing of suds on cars , I am sure that there are many other uses for it , but not one I would use for watering delicate plants .
The 6th and final setting is called Fan Spray , This is the kind of setting you will see used in garden nurseries across the country , absolutely perfect for making sure your plants are getting the right amount of water , and the setting I now use most frequently .
The trigger on the gun also has a flow regulator locking system with two different settings you can choose to lock the water flow at either a 40% or 100 % flow, The 40% flow is terrific for the garden .
My first impressions of this spray gun were that it was very heavy , and I was concerned that it was going to be uncomfortable to use for extended periods of time .I was delighted to be proved wrong , at 611 grams the gun is heavy but the way it has been developed means it is comfortable to hold . It gives me the choice of how much I water and at which setting , as I have mentioned of the six settings personally I would use three of them on a regular basis for my gardening needs.
Should I ever need to wash a car the first and 5th settings would be beneficial .
I have to say that as an amateur gardener I am very impressed with this Spray Gun , and would recommend it to anyone looking to upgrade an old hose .
Yes the initial expense could make you think twice before purchasing but the benefits far out weigh the cost . In my opinion Hozelock have made a product that is simple to use and has a myriad of uses , Worth every penny ,this is One Gun I would say I am Pro .
Summary: Worth every penny
