4.0 out of 5 stars Good product, October 7, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dramm 12704 9-Pattern Revolver Spray Nozzle, Green (Lawn & Patio)
I bought one of these Dramm nozzles 3 or 4 years ago at a nursery. Recently it started leaking so I have to replace it, but I must say, it's a very good product overall. The various nozzle options produce a variety of useful sprays. The one for "soaker" puts out a nice, soft, aerated spray that's ideal for watering plants in pots without blasting the dirt around. The "jet" is a really strong blast that's good for cleaning things.

Last weekend I picked up a similar replacement nozzle made by Gilmour at Lowe's. It's a nice looking unit with the same settings as the Dramm, so I figured, why not? When I got it home and put it on the hose, I was shocked at how poorly its spray options compared to the Dramm. The "soaker" stream is much too vigorous (useless for watering potted plants), while the "jet" is wimpy compared to my old Dramm. The only setting on the Gilmour that's the least bit useful is "mist", so I'm returning it to the store and getting another Dramm from Amazon. I had figured if two products from different companies looked about the same and had the same features, they'd perform comparably. I figured wrong.

I agree. This was a great nozzle, but mine started leaking quickly too!

Their products have a lifetime guarantee. Have you tried that? I don't know how it works, whether you have to pay shipping or anything. Also, could it simply be the O-ring?

Does anyone know if this product contains lead? We started gardening recently and with all the talk these days of getting your soil tested for lead, we've just been shocked at the amount of gardening equipment that contaminated -especially equipment that's water related (hoses, nozzles, spray arm attachments, etc). We have a mint craft spray nozzle and noticed the back of the package says, "This product contains chemicals including lead known to cause birth defects and other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling." This just floored me! You mean I have that stuff on my hands just from touching that thing? The thing that my kids love playing with? The thing we use to water our food?? So, yeah, now I'm shopping around for a new spray nozzle. Just want to be sure I'm not buying another stupid one. Thank you everybody.

Most outdoor water products contain lead. I read about this in Consumer Reports, I think it said it was for heat stability. That said, when they tested it they found that the lead didn't matter as long as water wasn't allowed to sit in the hose (i.e. turn it off and drain the water out of it before storage).
