Please note: this gadget does not, and was never intended to, shut off the water entirely, but rather to provide a small stream for rinsing dishes without splashing and without using up all the hot water. I've had two or three over the last 25 years or so -- the first and longest lasting was made in Italy. This is pretty much a duplicate design, with somewhat lesser materials. The appearance of metal on the spray head is appearance only -- it's just a sort of chrome paint or plate over plastic.

My water is very hard, and the buildup clogs aerator pores and screens. This widget unscrews fairly easily in a couple of places for removing the filter screens, and the whole gadget has withstood being dropped into hot vinegar many times with no harm to anything but its looks. I'm replacing mine because the head cracked from too much pressure when the screens were almost completely obstructed. (The swivel loop shuts off flow above the head, so this doesn't happen when reducing flow.) Despite the crack, there is no leaking. Yet. The gadget can take a lot.

Yes, the pull-down for the sprayer is a bit stiff -- I'm sure the user was expected to hold on to the faucet when pulling the spray head down, which isn't too practical when holding a dish in one hand and a cloth in the other. The only reason I keep buying the sprayer version is that it swivels further (good for washing sink debris into the equally indispensable Progressive Stainless Steel Sink Strainer!

It seems silly to add a flow reducer to a gadget whose whole reason for existing is the little swivel flow reducer, and I could wish that the part that screws into the faucet had been designed better -- it's very hard to get the pliers onto it by anything but the threads. (Be sure to lay out in order and above dog level the various O-rings and washers as you take it apart, or diagram the parts!) I ordered two this time so I can see if I can figure out where the non-negotiable flow reducer is and try drilling it out a bit -- the duplicate in case the idea causes disaster.

This is a great gift for anyone you visit who has an older type of faucet, a slow well, or particularly expensive hot water and a slow brain which can't remember to turn the water to a trickle when rinsing dishes.

My primary goal has been to find a flow reducer to conserve water. We had been given one several years ago when we purchased a soft water system and I've been looking ever since for more. I've done internet searches periodically and never seemed to find this product despite using the key words that I thought should describe this product. But, I found it on Amazon. Thank you, Amazon. This water saving faucet attachment is very easy to install and requires no tools. Like the directions state, only hand tightening is needed and there are no leaks. On my old attachment, the "on" lever was pointing down and the flow reducer was up. With this product, "up" is "on" and "down" is "reduction in flow". The lever is discrete compared to the long levers you see in other products. You can now wash and rinse your dishes without wasting water. I highly recommend this product.

This faucet attachment has proven to be the perfect addition to the functionality of my kitchen. I received it in two days from Amazon, opened the package, removed one of the rubber washers, and simply twisted it onto the outer threads of my kitchen sink faucet with no problems at all.

After turning the water on, it only took a minute for me to get used to the various options: pull down/up on the head to toggle between a spray and a stream, and push/pull the lever to turn on or off the water flow with no leaks whatsoever. I did not find either of these motions to be stiff or difficult in the least. I've found that it's very easy to one-handedly control the attachment while doing dishes, cleaning the sink, etc. And I never realized before this what a luxury it is to be able to swivel all around my sink -- my faucet only reaches a few inches into the sink (an enormous design flaw), so prime sink real estate was being wasted, and of course it was difficult before now to rinse larger pots and pans, but no more!

This is a very simple device but also very intuitively made. I am pleased with my purchase and look forward to conserving water in the future. Highly recommended for others who wish to save water, avoid over-spray while doing dishes, and find a solution for their heretofore dysfunctional faucets.

If anyone is like me, they hate that their kitchen faucet has separate hot and cold water valves; so when I'm washing dishes, I'm either getting ice-cold water or burning-hot water! That's when I started looking for aerator with an "on-off" switch, so I could adjust the water to temperature I wanted and then turn the water off and on at the aerator without going back to the individual hot and cold valves. This little gem does the trick perfectly. In addition, the head can switch to a shower mode when pulled down, which is great for rinsing dishes. The on-off switch works great, although it doesn't shut the valve off completely; there's still a small but continuous drip of water that comes out, so you couldn't use this to shut of the water for a long period of time. And, the fact that I'm using less water is all the better! Recommended.

This item works exactly as described. It came with extra adapters. It took me a minute to unpack and to install the aerator. I am very pleased with it appearance and function

Love it. Saves water and I really like the option of normal flow or aeration. Sure, if you're filling up a stock pot it does take a bit longer, but I can wait as long as I'm saving money on my water bill every month. Husband loves it too. And was easy to install.

My family home in Vermont in the 80s had something like this, and once in a while throughout my life I would find myself flicking the side of the faucet looking for that lever. I was very happy to find this. It has a great swivel head that you can pull down and turn into a spray. It's a little stiff but it serves its purpose. I had one on the sink at the house I just sold and am now purchasing another for my new home. Once you get used to having this thing it's hard not to have it.

Like others have said, this is the real one. Clicks from regular to spray effortlessly and the lever slows water to a tiny trickle. Looks good in white. Good purchase!

I love this attachment.
First of, downgrade from standard 2.4 to 2.0 is NOT noticable when filling pots or kettles.
Second, this easily switches from concentrated to spray (perfect for rinsing) setting with a simple pull on the nozzle (or push to switch back).
Third, when you don't need water (like when you are soaping up the dishes) you can easily switch it off by flipping the lever. Then, flip the lever back and you'll have your water back at a previously adjusted temperature setting!
I use this because I care about our water supply - I'm an environmentalist; but those of you living in the private houses, paying for your water out of your own pocket will surely feel monetary benefit of having this amazing device!
Go #Neoperi!

Except for the fact that it's easy to turn off the water flow, I really like this nozzle. It is sturdy and doesn't leak. It's not a hand sprayer but it's the next best thing. Hope this helps...
