Spray lance


On GW, Monty was using a spray lance on the end of his hose, anyone any idea what the make may be as it appeared to have a very fine spray compared to mine?
I have used a Hozelock, it is pretty useless as they leak after a short time and cannot be repaired.  A spokesman on their web site says the problem is not with their product but it has been left out in the frost, so the o ring splits, mine have not!
Typical waffle!

    I have a gardena spray lance which I have had since 2015, tended to leave it out in all weather's until the lance developed a few pin holes. Put it in the shed now for winter and duct tape sorted the holes.
    I lost the screw top to it once found it again but they could have sent me another so they must do spares.
  • My gardena one is really good but wouldn't dream of leaving it out for the weather to ruin it. Because it holds quite a bit of water when disconnected... wouldn't want to find out what happens if it freezes. Easy enough to drain after use and store in the garage/shed.

    My Gardena spray lance has been outside, attached to the hose, every day for the past three years. It still functions perfectly.

    Most of the problems these days seem to be down to poor quality manufacture.  I inherited a sprayer with extended lance from my mum.  She died in 2005 and the metal lance is still working well.  Another I purchased about 5 years ago has a plastic lance and it is already leaking from joints.  Mine isn't left outside either.

    We have a Geka soft rain lance, its excellent. Around £ 40.00 on ebay. Not heavy as its aluminium and far more robust than Hozelock or Gardena.

    Hi, would anyone know if a Gardenia lance would fit on a Hoselock hose and attachment? I only ask because I thought Gardenia products might be smaller in diameter?

    Mine is a gardena that is attached to Hozelock aquastop fitting. @Meomye

    Mine is a Hozelock, lives in the garage, drained after use, fits into a generic water stop and is the best thing I have bought when it comes to watering my hay racks etc. It has a variety of sprays and a bendy head so can be angled to suit position.

    Thanks @K67 good to know.

    Thanks for the ideas, at the moment the least useful tool in the garden is the hose, it does not know when to stop raining!

    Cheers for now!
