"Can't write a long term review, cos I've only had it two days. The only downside I can see is that it's a little short in length, so if your baskets were really high, it might struggle, but for a fiver it's tremendous value."
"Excellent watering performance. Amazing value at £4.99. Would prefer a trigger to an On/Off switch but that's a small matter when you look at the VFM compared with main brands. Screwfix should explain how they expect you to rate "reliability" when you've only just bought an item."
"This product is superior in performance, build, and longevity compared to any of its more expensive competitors. I have previously owned several "name brand" watering lances, and all have failed after 12 - 18 months due to leakage and failure of the on/off control. I bought two of these units because they were inexpensive, and if they latest 12 months then they were still good value. They are both still working as new after 2 years, and I have just purchased whilst stocks are available, a third unit to keep until required. I can thoroughly recommend this product."
"Wasn't expecting too much, but it seems to be solidly built, spray selection is positive, and the spray patterns are varied with no side sprays or drips. Also fits perfectly on a Hozelock socket with no leakage."
"Good product for the price. Item feels sturdy and gives the impression it will last (although I have only used it 3 or 4 times so far). Good range of spray patterns. Connects to my existing hose no problems. Only slight negative is that there is no flow control - water is either on or off."
"For the price this tool seems to be excellent value. I bought it as a replacement for a much more expensive alternative that broke (after some years use). For what I need as an amateur gardener it is more than adequate. Some of the spray settings are a bit messy but overall it does the job of distributing water at an appropriate rate to where it is needed very well."
"I purchased this type of spray lance from another company some time ago and cost twice as much.The reason i am happy to pick this one again is that it is a really useful tool for the baskets but for general watering as well. Lots of different types of spray so you should find one to suit your needs.Doesn't leak with a really good one off switch. Just dont stand on it as it will break - which is why i had to buy a new one!"
"Fairly well built for the cheap price point. Easily connects to my current Hozelock system. Good range of spray pattern settings, one of which (shower) is very good for watering delicate plants. The head is quite movable to water those high placed flower baskets. Control of the flow of water is restricted to on or off using a rocker switch but this does cut the water off straight away when it is used. Handy little hook near the head to hang the lance up when not in use."
