Tired of buying a new spray handle every summer when they rust or corrode or just stop working? Yeah, me too.
This handle is solid metal and can be taken apart for cleaning or servicing the o-rings in the valve section. I only have a couple of issues with this but none of them are substantial enough to drop my rating.
First, the trigger would be better if it were longer than two fingers. It doesn't take much force to pull the trigger or hold it in place so unless you are going to be spraying for a very long time, this isn't too big of a deal.
Second, this is all metal and seems very sturdy. This is a possible drawback also if you are like me and leave it attached to the hose and left out in the sun. As a result the handle can be very hot. If you live in an area with cold water it also means the handle can get very cold after using it for a few minutes as well. This isn't really unexpected though and doesn't detract from the overall quality.
Time will tell how long this will last but the fact that I can take it apart and soak it in vinegar to remove calcium deposits as well as replace the o-ring and even lubricate it with a silicon based lubricant speaks to it lasting a lot longer than the typical crap you can get from the retail home improvement stores. If this unit lasts two seasons it will have paid for itself. So far it looks brand new after sitting in the sun for several months. By this point the finish on the other trigger sprayers I have used would be dull and starting to crack and peel.
