"I bought this product becuase i wanted more control over watering plants - which the 6 features are great for - and the trigger mechanism is way more convenient than the twist on/off products
i also wanted metal so it would be more sturdy i.e. wouldn't split if i stood on it.
it is very sturdy, however - the metal makes it heavy to hold and also the weight unravels the hose coil from the wall when stored - so i have to place it on top of the hose coil (not leave it dangling below)
also the trigger leaks water occasionally - i took it back and exchanged it but the new one seems to do the same.. dissapointed in that seeing as it cost £20"
